Hu725awdex Mower
I am very pleased with my mower in general. However, I think the battery recharging arrangement is primitive.

I guess the mower has to be heavier than normal to provide better traction, but I hate to think of the day when the drive goes out.

Sorry I Bought It
If I had to do all over again I would not have purchased this mower. Used twice and had to send in for warranty work. The work was covered under the warranty however I had no way of getting the mower to the service dealer and had to pay them $75.00 for pickup and delivery. The mower is "jerky" when cutting the grass and using the mulching feature does not do a very good job of mulching the grass. I will most likely use the mower the rest of this season and then try to sell it at a... more

Excellent Equipment!
This lawnmower has power! We live on 3/4 acre of land and enjoy doing our own landscaping--the lawnmower is easy to maneuver the differing grades in the land. Only recommendation I have for the manufacturer/designer is to create a larger catch bag otherwise -- we have no complaints whatsoever. The lawnmower was easy to assemble, consistently starts up on the first press of the button (electric starter) and is an overall good value.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Features, Durable
Cons: Expensive, Catch bag should be designed bigger/hold more clippings.

Time Will Tell!
One reviewer wrote "It is a mountain goat!" and I agree. It is all I can do to keep up with it. The adjustment device to control velocity on the cable doesn't change the speed and this is a matter of design not bad adjustment or a broken part. So the mower takes off and the idea is to slow the velocity by loosing my grip on the accelerator. Can't loosen your grip to slow it down when you you are hanging on trying to keep up. My solution was to bend a pipe in a U and use it to control... more

Very Satisfied
I am very satisfied with this lawn mower. It had almost all of the features I was looking for. The performance has been great so far. Very powerful, mulches fine, all-wheel self propulsion is better that I expected. I have a slight grade to my yard but it takes me up the hill with no problem at all. My only issues were on the quality of the product when received. It was missing a part to attach the pull cord to on the handle but I just picked up a bolt from the hardware that did the... more
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Easy To Use, Durable, High Quality
Cons: Overall quality of mower is fine but there were a couple of issue

Lawn Mower
I received a damaged mower from the factory. It was replaced promptly by Mowers Direct. The mower works great. I use it where my riding mower will not go, ditches and inclines. It does not like to backup but the AWD gives it plenty of forward power and it steers easily. I would give it Five stars, Along with Mowers Direct!
Pros: I'd Buy It Again

Bought A Second Husqvarna All-wheel Drive
I have two properties to mow with a lot of ditches. Bought the same model last summer as all-wheel drive was needed. Needed a second one and wanted electric start. The Husqvarna is the only one I could find with all-wheel drive and electric start. I also have two older Husqvarna riding mowers. I wish someone could engineer a way for push mowers to be turned easier! Didn't seek out just Husqvarnas but they were always the best for their features. The discharge chute extension knocks off... more

Great Mower, Great Quality
Ordered on Thursday received on Monday, super fast service, mower is great, super quality, did my research and found out both the other 2 mowers I checked out were made for them by another company of which I have not had good luck with. Overall, I am very pleased.

Love The Mower
The mower is everything I hoped for.

The delivery - not so much. The paint on the deck was gouged and Mowers Direct's solution was tough up paint.

"You will never notice it."

Well. I do.

There was no sign of damage on the box and the scratches are not exposed to the edges of the box.

Makes me think the scratches did not happen in shipping.

Oh well, its just a mower.

This Product Needs A Lot Of Work
Very poor design on the bag attachment as it blows dust and dirt into the face of the operator. It is not always possible to go forward, sometimes you have to back up and then the bag comes off.
Very poor design on the motor/blade work. Should be able to disengage the blades to take the bag off without having to start the motor again. This is very inconvenient when the bag falls off.
This is a plastic tinker toy.
Cons: Low Quality, Difficult To Use, Bad Instructions, Durability

Manufacturer Response
Brand Rep
Sue,
Hi Sue,

The bag should not come off when moving rearward. The only potential causes would be if the bag is very full and the mower tilted very far to the rear, or potentially a broken clasp. If you feel there is a manufacturing issue causing this, please take it to your nearest authorized Husqvarna dealer for evaluation.

In regards to inability to leave the engine running while dumping the bag, this is not a model designed to operate in such a manner. Our mowers equipped with BBC (blade Brake Clutch) do operate in this manner if you seek this type of feature.

Climbs Like A Goat!
I specifically chose this mower to handle a steep hillside along the driveway. The All Wheel Drive coupled with much lighter weight than my old Toro makes that slope much easier to cut. Works great for normal mowing and trimming. Very pleased so far.

Good So Far, But Ask Me In A Month!
Yesterday was only the second time that I used this mower, but it was a good test: The grass was thick and a bit on the damp side. We had to go fairly slow through the grass, but despite that the mower died several times. We had to remove grass blockage from the blade before we could start it again.

Would I buy it again? Probably, but ask me in another month. I've had a Toro and a Honda previously and was looking for something more powerful and with electric start (for the family), so... more

No Real Need For The Bag
I used the bag for the first cut with my new mower. After that it hasnt mattered if I wait 1 week or 2 to cut the grass it cuts the grass so fine in mulch mode you can't tell it wasn't bagged. Love my mower

Only problem is the mower wants to pull to the left and make it hard to mow. Not sure if anything could be done for that.

All Wheel Drive Mower
The mower seems to be working really well. The all wheel drive feature is great for my sloping yard. The electric start is really an arm saver. I am still getting used to letting go of the self propelled levers is time for the wheels to roll forward a little when I want to back up.

When I let loose in time I have no problem backing up but if I don't let off and push forward a little bit the wheels are still locked and the wheels want to scoot on the grass instead of roll. I am getting better... more

Does The Job
Have used this mower 3 times on a one acre yard with some hills and am very pleased with it. The all wheel drive handles the hills with no problem and I find it very easy to maneuver. The electric start is easy on the old arthritic shoulders and the machine is pretty quiet, too. A great mower that does the job (so far, anyway) ! I doubt it will last 25 years like my old Toro, but I hope to get 10 years or so out of it.

One note - the battery box was missing one bolt, and just barely hanging... more

22" Husky Electric Start Awd Mower
Haven't mowed lawn yet up here in Wisconsin but added oil and gas and it started right up. I was very hesitant at first considering their return policy. So everything seems to work so far and enjoy many of the features, hence why I purchased this one. Only disappointment is I believe this was supposed to come with the new circular blade but appears to be just the standard straight blade.

Husky told me to go to dealer, where I didn't buy the machine from, and tell them to try to get me... more
