Husqvarna, what can’t they do? They make large construction equipment, awesome concrete saws and yes even lawn mowers. While this doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of the Craftsman AWD that we tested, it is a solid lawn mower, but would you expect anything less from Husqvarna? This is a no thrills option for the lawn mower world. While it doesn’t have a side discharge, it can bag and mulch. One big thing this mower can do is get up hill and through valleys because of the All Wheel Drive system. I do like the speed of the lawn mower when you engage the AWD. While it won’t make you run, it does have a nice fast speed.
This unit is equipped with a deck wash to help keep it clean in between mowing. While the AWD system is great going forward, it does make it a little hard to pull backwards as with all AWD systems. Hands down you are not going to go wrong with this Husqvarana. While it is a big company, we have yet to find one product they make cheaply. Everything we have ever tried from Husqvarna always feels like it is top notch stuff. This is one reason I would always trust them. All companies say they want to be the best in all areas, but so far it really seems like Husqvarna has been the only one to prove it.
