Just what I needed
My advice to anyone...read reviews like this one. When the mowing season came around my old mower decided it was done. With the grass getting high I rushed out and bought a new mower...without reading reviews. Needless to say, the mower I bought went back after being used twice.
Having learned my lesson, I started looking for what I wanted and needed. At the big box store I saw Husqvarna mowers and liked what they had, but they didn't have everything I wanted. I found this model on the website and went in search of one. Yesterday morning I bought one and brought it home, I couldn't be happier with the purchase. As son as I got home I had to try it, it did my front yard without missing a beat. The power was solid but it seemed rather quiet. Each time I stopped, it fired right up.
I left the back yard for today...I really tested the new mower. The grass had gotten quite long and it was a bit wet. This mower powered right through and left it looking great. The only thing that I have noticed is that the wheel alignment takes some getting used to. The rear wheels are spread wider than the front which makes lining up your paths a bit difficult, I'm sure I'll get used to it.
I would recommend this mower to anyone.

Live and learn!
Earlier this year, I purchased a Snapper walk-behind lawn mower (wait, keep reading!), and I hated it. The self propel drive belt would NOT stay on! It was difficult to start! It was too heavy! The grass catcher bag was the dickens to remove, empty and replace! The rear wheel adjustment leavers were way too confined to make easy adjustments in the cutting height! I asked the dealer to please take it back, and he would NOT! I literally GAVE it away.
I then purchased a Husqvarna HU700F, and I LOVE it. It’s simple to operate, starts first or second time EVERY time, easy to adjust mowing deck height; a great piece of equipment! And it was 2/3 the price of the Snapper!! Live and learn!!
