Q: So why does your site rate this for flast terrain and not hilly? I thought AWD mowers were supposed to be a good fit for hilly, irregular terrain.
by Dennis from Oregon on March 15, 2014

A: Dennis - you are absolutely correct. The Husqvarna all-wheel drive walk behind mowers are specifically designed for use on hilly, irregular terrain. The all-wheel drive system gives them improved traction and helps them climb hills and slopes more easily than a traditional self-propelled mower does.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: What is the bag capacity?
by Dave from Washington on October 19, 2013

A: Dave - the Husqvarna HU800AWD mower has a 2.4 cubic foot grass bag capacity.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Hi
Is the mower blade 532 40 67-11 the blade I should use on a Husqvarna HU800AWD mower?

by Dennis Barwig from Connecticut on June 27, 2013

A: Dennis - the Husqvarna HU800AWD mower requires a Husqvarna 580 24 40-01 replacement mower blade.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Does this mower have reverse? Thanks

by Gordon A Williamson, Mayor from Missouri on April 19, 2013

A: Gordon - there is no reverse gear or drive on the Husqvarna HU800AWD. The drive system will disengage so you can pull the mower backward, but it is not a power reverse.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Does the Husqvarna HU800AWD have a feature like Honda's Roto-Stop« Blade Brake Clutch? Also, is the AWD a real advantage on very steep hills over the rear drive models?
by Allan from Pennsylvania on April 13, 2013

A: Allan - the Husqvarna AWD mower does not have a blade brake clutch feature. The engine will stop whenever the bail is released. Yes, the big advantage of an all-wheel drive mower would be for mowing on hilly terrain.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Does it come with the rear bag grass catcher??
by Steve from Louisiana on April 12, 2013

A: Steve - yes, the rear grass bagger is included with the Husqvarna All-Wheel drive mower.
by Jose, Product Expert

Q: Interested in your Husqvarna HU800AWD. Is it true all wheel drive; power to all 4 wheels? I have a Craftsman rear wheel but if you lift it in gear, only one wheel has power. I need something with extra pull for hilly terrain.
by Doug from North Carolina on March 30, 2013

A: Doug - the Husqvarna HU800AWD delivers power to all 4 wheels. You may need to adjust the AWD drive cable a bit for your personal liking depending on how you like it to engage.

Just Finished Year 2 And Still Perfect Machine.
To those thinking about buying this machine, go ahead and do it. Two complete seasons and never a problem. I'm 76 and my wife is 75 and we argue over who's turn to mow. So easy on our hilly lawn.
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, Quiet, Exceeded Expectations

Husqvarna Doesn't Honor Warranties
Initially this lawn mower worked GREAT right out of the box. I was very happy with it. After about 4 weeks it started acting strange, with the engine randomly dying and then having trouble starting. I contacted Husqvarna and was told to take it to a repair center. Now is where I began my education on the world of lawn mower warranties.

The Husqvarna repair center determined that the problem was with the engine, and that they wouldn't touch it because Husqvarna won't warranty work done on the... more

Sterling,
If you mower is having issues with running and starting they would certainly be engine related and should be handled through Honda's warranty on the engine.

Should you need assistance from us, please call our customer service at 1-800-487-5951.

Really Good Mower
The drive mechanism works great and the Honda engine lives up to its reputation. It starts first time each time I use it. I really like the 3-in-1 feature. The weight makes it a little hard to maneuver in tight places, but when I release the drive lever and follow the instructions to push it forward slightly before pulling it back, it makes it easier to handle. I like the free shipping and no sales tax

Great Mower
I've been mowing a long hillside with Craftsman mowers for 25 years. It got to a point where my knees and ankles could not do it anymore. I decided to try the Husqvarna versus paying someone to do it for me. WOW, what a difference. This is a great mower. Not only is it easy to operate, it does a fantastic job of mulching, even with long grass.

The mowers I've been using would not mulch, so I've been bagging the whole time. It is literally the easiest starting gas appliance I have ever used... more

Mid Size Yard Newbie
I come from a zero lot yard and had a small push lawnmower. After reading reviews from "Mowersdirect" site, I decided to get this lawn mower. I noticed that it was one of the heavier ones, but he rest of the functionality and specs were what I was looking for. Customer service was great. I received it in no time at all. I opened up the box and started to assembly it. No issues there. I started up the engine and started to mow.

The weight of the lawn mower was a lot heavier... more

49 yr old in upstate NY who pushes his mower to get a bit of walking in, but 2 wheel drive mowers were getting a bit hard to push on my steep hill. The AWD system has made the job a lot easier.

"Ordering was quick and easy. Mower arrived as promised and I just needed to add the Oil, Fuel, and set up the handlebar. Mower has worked great all season. The AWD system is great and only needed 1 minor adjustment, even though I have a fairly steep hill. Reports from others who had to adjust the mower settings ů are you sure you are not pulling the mover backwards while the clutch is engaged? That will cause it to need adjustments. I saw my 16 year old doing this and had to train him not to do so (this was the only time I had to make an adjustment). The only modification I would recommend is to raise the gas cap above the mower housing. It can be a bit tough to reach and difficult to open."

Very Difficult To Start
Mower works great once I get it started. Need to pull rope 10-20 times before it starts. Very disappointed in the Honda engine.

Good Mower With A Few Problems
Mower runs great. Nice clean and even cuts. AWD makes the mower feel solid. But as with all things there are a few problems. First is the cleanout connection. Don't waste your time hooking up your hose, just lift your mower by the side and use a spray nozzle to clean off the grass. Second, my mower made a grinding noise in one of the front wheels. The gear drive was not making a good connection, used a few small washers to shim the gear on the wheel and all is now well. Third (and this one kind... more

My Experience
I researched several mowers and after reading reviews on the HU800AWD, I decided to purchase one. It arrived, was easy to assemble, cranked right up. I mowed with it and was very impressed with the power. Each time I mowed, I had to adjust the drive belt until after the 3rd time I mowed, the drive belt had been adjusted all the way and the mower would not propel itself any longer. Since I live in a rural area, about 40 miles from the nearest service, I decided that I would remove the belt,... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, Quiet, Durable
Cons: Expensive, Unreliable, Poor Drive System Design Hard To Access Drive Belt
