I purchased my HU800AWD in April, 2013. During that time, it has been broke down or in the shop for over 3 months. Most of the time in the shop has been waiting on parts. I asked for a replacement mower, since mine seemed to be a lemon, and was denied a replacement, even thought the problems have been due to poor design and/or quality. I do not recommend this mower.

Mr Honda goes to sweden
My review will be short and sweet. My last Honda mower lasted me 15 years. Its was given to the next owner still running fine as a gift from me,he actually was the mover who moved us out of California. I knew one thing my next mower would have a Honda engine or I wouldn't buy it. I saw this mower and fell in love. This mower has Honda power in a swedish machine so thats all you need to say. From Lowes it started first time. Until you've experienced all wheel drive you will never get it. Give me a lot of grass and some steep hills and I could sell these things all day long. In fact they couldnt make them fast enough for me to sell. They dont just go up hills they will pull you up hills.

Product features and power are great
Bought new for the wife. The AWD works great on our lawn. Controls are easy to operate. Rear bagger is a breeze to attach as well as the side discharge.

Needs a different engine
Bought this mower in late May 2013 and it has a build in choke that sounds great at first, but hurts in the long run. My mower will no longer start, September 2013, it gets harder and harder to start and eventually wont after a few months. I have fresh gas, oil, spark plug, and clean filter. The company does not have a direct complaint email address to help customers with problems. They push you to a separate web page that is a forum or a $40 "pro" help page. I work for a fortune 150 company and would be embarrassed to have this kind of customer support. I would NOT recommend this product or any other from this company.

Met all my expectations
Mowing on steep slopes was much easier with the AWd

Great mower, with minor dissapointment.
I was looking for a power mower to mow my steep inclines in Montana. I needed an AWD that could get the job done. This mower is powerful and worked well the first time. I wish that there was variable speeds though, the slow to fast is non existent with the lever action (it is go or stop). Unfortunately, I was only able to use it one time this summer because it wouldn't start the second time I went to use it. After 3 weeks at Billings Hardware, they discovered that the carb needed cleaned and noted that this is a systemic issues with this type of mower. I paid $45 (after already paying $500 for the mower) to have a tech clean the carburator. This seems like it is going to be an expensive investment...
