Comment:
I rarely give any product a 5 stars; however, if I did than I would rate this product a 5 star. This product has served me well for my medium/big size lawn. I read the review regarding the break down on an acre; well, maybe this isn't meant for an acre. I do like that it idles when you need to pick up pieces off the lawn. The speed control is a bit touchy but not overbearing. It kicks butt when cutting tall grass, so I can't complain. I have moved twice with this mower and the box is still with me. Overall, a great product. I would rercommend it to anyone with a small to medium sized yard. My property is .30 acre lot. Good Luck to all of you! Enjoy.

Have an acre of grass to cut. Mower kept breaking down so often Lowe's replaced it. That one broke, too. Self-propelling most often, but also had to replace drive belt, bail assembly, poorly-engineered sp handle broke, etc., etc. Just got it overhauled to the tune of $242! Buyer beware!

Comment:
My yard is too small for a riding mower but too big to PUSH a mower. This self-propelled is just right. At times I wish it would go faster but not too often. Have owned several different brands over my lifetime but this is first Husqvarna product. It won't be the last.
