Husqvarna 961450021 HU800AWDH Self Propelled Lawn Mower Review
When you want to purchase a great lawn mower, think only about the self propelled versions. These products are preferred mostly because they simplify your work when mowing. Instead of you exerting all your energy to push, the self propelled mower propels itself. As soon as you turn it on, simply hold down the bail or bar located on the handlebar. The equipment will start moving and cutting grass.
Prior to using any self propelled mower, we advise you to determine the pattern you are going to use. By so doing you will just direct the equipment according to your mowing pattern. And because there are so many self propelled lawn mowers in the market, our suggestion is that you stick to one brand for now. The best brand to buy a mower from is Husqvarna. We would personally recommend Husqvarna HU800AWDH model, as we have personally bought and tested it on our lawn. Remember that Husqvarna is a big company with so many other selections. But here is why you need this model.
Powerful Honda Engine and Steel Deck
Husqvarna HU800AWDH is a gas mowing machine using Honda gcv 190cc cycle engine. This is a very powerful engine, as we found out, and it makes the whole equipment move faster and cut closer to the root. Another amazing component is the steel mower deck.
When time is not on your side, this Husqvarna model will not let you down. Its 22-inch deck cuts a wider path, ensuring that you finish a tough job much faster than expected.
What is even more amazing is the fact that this mower is a 3-in-1. So it does rear bagging, mulching, and side discharging. So as soon as you are done with one pass, the entire collecting job is done for you. The mulching option helps you slash grass and cut it into small bits that can be dispersed across the lawn to add humus. You can use any of the three options depending on what you prefer.
Effortless drive system
Movement is so easy and fun when it comes to this equipment. It slides easily because of the four by four drive rear hi-wheel that is always found in Husqvarna lawn mowers. This component improves maneuverability of the mower, and no matter the type of grass you have the mower will pass through it with ease.
This is a walk self-propelled gas mower with an easy drive system that lets you exert just the right amount of energy when directing the mower. You can actually control the pace of the mower based on how fast you want to walk. The ball bearing wheels of this Husqvarna HU800AWDH Honda gcv model are eight inches wide and eleven inches wide for the front and rear wheels respectively.
All Husqvarna lawnmowers are totally efficient and ergonomic. But we specifically love how powerful and easy-starting the engine of this model is. We always achieve a first class cutting experience with this. Bear in mind that our yards’ terrains range from difficult, to moderately difficult, to smooth and flat.
We have achieved excellent results with this model no matter the type of topography. All you must do is to keep squeezing the bail that is mounted on the handlebar. This way you will be able to control the speed and direction of mowing. We have absolutely no regrets, and we would choose this mower over and over.
Pros and cons
So far we have not observed any serious mechanical faults that stopped this equipment from working. It’s definitely a belt-driven mower which has more power than you could ever imagine. Even if the belt pops off the rear pulley, there is an instruction booklet that shows you how to return the belt to its original position.
It also shows you how to configure each component when it stops working properly. But there is one thing we recommend. If you are buying a new item, do not be tricked into buying a used one because there is a price to pay. Except that driving this equipment required a little more patience, we have no more complains.
Mulching up thick, nicely grown grass won’t be a problem with this Husqvarna HU800AWDH mower. It will stay straight even when mowing sideways on sloppy places. We highly recommend it.
