Husqvarna HU700H Lawn Mower Review


It’s a beautiful day, and you see the lawn needs to be moed. But the idea of huffing and puffing pushing a lawn mower across is not your idea of fun. Understandable. Husqvarna, one of the oldest companies in the world has come up with a model that would knock your socks off.

Built to cater to the busy individual who needs time with family, or the customer who does not have the strength to push the mower, the new Husqvarna HU700H is just the thing for you. This model is a brand new introduction and is part of their 2015 line.

There are so many great features to the Husqvarna HU700H that you’ll be left speechless. It has a 22” cutting deck – which would make easy work of your lawn.

Think of the amount of time you’d save using this mean machine! Having a Honda engine, the Husqvarna HU700H goes up to speeds of 3 mph. Being Honda, the engine is a reliable 4 stroke GVC160cc, with overhead valves. This ensures an easy start to the mowing expedition.

The package is so easy to assemble that you can use it within 5 minutes of delivery! What’s so great about the Husqvarna HU700H is that it is self propelled. Yes, you heard me correctly.

Its auto walk self propelled rear wheel drive system lets you control the pace of your mowing. Amazed? Still more to come! Even cold weather shouldn’t be able to stop you from maintaining your lawn. It is easy to start the HU700H’s engine due to its automatic choke.

With the Husqvarna HU700H’s 11” rear wheels, you are guaranteed stability and easy movement across your lawn. Ball bearings in the wheels ensure great manoeuvrability. The HU700H has simplified a lot by paying attention to the details.

It is easy to adjust levels by a single lever on the left hand side instead of changing them individually on all wheels. If you’re a tall person, never fear. The handle has 3 adjustment levels so you can be comfortable.

Talk about attention to details. The deck is powder coated underneath – this is to prevent rust from accumulating there. In addition to this, the Husqvarna HU700H has a Deck Washout Port. This means you can hook up a hose to the deck so it is easier to clean.

Of course, this is CARB compliant – so less emissions and no smoke. The steel deck of the HU700H is sturdier than its plastic bodied counterparts, and this proves to be more durable. The ergonomically designed handle keeps your hands and wrists comfortable while mowing.
