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.

Excellent Mower for Sr Citizen With Sloping Lot
Powerful mower. Starts 1st time every time, even fresh out of the box. AWD very effective. Not as loud as one would expect from such a powerful engine. Having a snap-off hose attachment to clean under deck after mowing is terrific feature. Mulching works well even when grass is taller than desired due to recent rains.

1.0 'NOT HAPPY'8/29/2013 Pros Cons
Ive Had It For 4 Weeks An Best Uses Comment:
ive had this awd 800 mower for the past 4 weeks and im trying to return it to buy another john deere with caster wheels that i had for 7 yrs. this mower leaves alot of cut grass behind when you use the bagging option.it also leaves some uncut grass in the ceter of my cuts.when cutting the grass you have to do a lot of over lapping to get the grass cut right. it takes me twice as long to cut lawn. also when you release the self propelled handle you have to manually push the mower about3 to 4 inches other wise you cant pull it back (the wheels wont roll back). i would not recommened this mower to my worst enemey
How long have you owned it:
A month or less
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

I have about 7,000 sq ft of yard to mow as well as fire lanes for 2 acres. This mower does everything well. The Honda motor starts on the first pull every time, the AWD pulls itself up inclines well and the mulching system does fine. I always look forward to mowing the yard with this mower. My only complaint would be the ergonomics of the AWD handles. My hands tend to get tired holding them half way because full throttle is sometimes too fast. Others may not have this problem. I have problems in both hands from my former law enforcement career (both have been broken). For me that would be my complaint. Also, the AWD system makes the mower heavier than others. This is only a problem when you are trying to pick it up, you don't feel the weight mowing.

Don't buy this mower!!!!!!!!
I purchased this AWD mower April 25th, it broke down on Aug. 25 and we returned it to the store for reapair (warranty service) We go it back today Sept 9th - so we used this $503.00 mower exactly three months before it broke down. The mower is cleaned after each use and stored inside and is used for normal grass cutting. The mower IS SUPPOSED to have a 3 year warranty. NOT!! The "repair" was bogus and could not have been the actual problem. A mower plug does not go bad in three months and a line leading to the carborator does not clog, when the air breather is as clean as a showroom model.
Lowes said Husquvarna would not cover the cost of the repair..... I returned the mower and got my money back!
The warranty is absolutely no good.

Worst mower I have ever purchased.
This mower, by far, is the worst mower I have ever purchased. I have had lawn services in the past and always had a Lawnboy. Since they are no longer built, I had to buy a new mower and went with the AWD Husquavara. It has the worst mulching system, I have to go over my yard twice, the way the bagger is designed, you cant even feel it all the way up due to the design of it. I haven't even had it the whole summer, and the right front wheel has fallen apart, and now I have to wait to get it fixed. The mower is also hard to start, have never been able to start it on the first pull. Would NEVER recommend this mower to anybody, the only pro about this mower i would have to say that i was happy with is the STRONG Honda motor, but overall VERY DISSAPPOINTED!

Power was good, and AWD works well. My back right wheel will not stay in the adjusted height position. It falls to the lowest level once you start mowing and causes an uneven job.

Best for less
I needed a mower that would really pushed it self, and I would just guide it. I got it down to two, the Honda or the Husqvarna with the GCV 190 engine. Husqvarna won, because of price, 100.00 cheaper. I haven't own many mowers but this one is the best. This mower does everything I need it to do, and gives me change. I can't say anything bad about this machine. Like anything else you have to get use to it, but once you do, HELLO BABY!!!.
