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

Love the AWD.
Easy to use. Starts right up. Would buy another just not sure where?

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...

Great choice - 1 ACRE property
I have a 1 acre property and this mower is great at completing my weekly 3 - 4 hour mowing exercise. The all wheel drive is very good at going up and down small hills and assisting with the duration of mowing. Only down side is the adjustment required to keep the all wheel drive performing like new. This adjustment is in the owner's manual so why didn't the engineers design a better drive system ??? Also noticed now that I've had it a number of months that unless the all wheel drive is released and then the mower is pushed forward a few inches, the front wheels do not release from the drive belt for turns.

choke the choke
This mower has power plus and could drag you up hills in my lawn. First you have to get it started and that is harder than doing the mowing. There is a definite choke problem and have had it back to the dealer five times. He finally showed me a way to circumvent the %$#*&%^ problem but it is a pain to get down on your knees and faniggle and I shouldn't have to with a $500 mower. The dealer has repeatedly tried to get some help from the techs but it seems like it has snowed them too. If you can put up with this problem this is a great mower; after it starts.

Best mower ever! I really love this.
Powerful, wheels go not get stuck, goes over hills and different terrain, excellent power and speed, starts first time every time. Grass bag really bags grass. My green JD I had for years, chute was always clogging, not this, great design, Honda engine, beautiful and Husqvarna has a fantastic reputation for a reason. Researched it and hard to find at dealers, none in stock it was so popular, Lowes suppose to carry it, none had it, check 25 stores, finally found one at a Lowes 60 miles away, I immediately drove there and bought it. You will love it! Thank You.

I have owned this mower for two months.
So easy to start. Quiet. Powerful. Climbs steep slopes and keeps traction even on bumpy ground.
It's a little heavy.
But the mulching is terrible, grass builds up in the plug. And then falls out in clumps all around the yard. I hope they read theses reviews and rectify this as it mars a near perfect mower.
