Mulching:
Reflects a combination of evenness, which is how close the mowers came to even, carpet-like mowing, and how completely the mower distributed its clippings over the lawn's surface.

Bagging:
Denotes a combination of evenness, which is how close the mowers came to even, carpet-like mowing, and how much clippings the bag held before it filled or the chute clogged.

Side discharging:
A combination of evenness, which is how close the mowers came to even, carpet-like mowing, and how evenly clippings were dispersed from the side-discharge chute.

Comment:
Overall this is a really great mower. But there are some caveats - primarily with the drive unit. This mower cuts well - I primarily mulch - and I almost have to run to keep up with it, even on some slight slopes. <br /><br />But the drawback is the drive, if the fact that the wheels lock when attempting to pull backwards. If you have any obstructions - be it trees, house, whatever - if you use the propulsion to go up to the object and attempt to pull backwards - the wheels lock up. You have to either drag it back or rock the mower forward a couple of inches. This is a heavy mower so dragging it back with locked wheels is a PITA. You can get use to it and stop with the drive short of the object but if you don't, you will have the wheels locked and have to drag it - or hopefully there is enough room to rock it forward. <br /><br />I gave this mower only 3 stars because of this - mainly because of all the feedback about this to the manufacturer that I have read and there is still the issue - well, if they were paying attention this would have been addressed. Other than this, it is a great mower and I would recommend it to a friend. If they fixed this then I would gladly give it 5 stars.

Comment:
This mower is used weekly sometimes bagging and other times not depending on the wetness of the grass. This mower handles well and starts on the first or second pull always. I have no complaints at all and would highly recommend this mower. I have many Husqvarna tools and love all of them (some over 25 yrs old)

Comment:
Returned the first one to Lowes because it would not re-start after emptying bag the first day of use... After a year the second one's drive cable twisted in half because it comes in contact with the drive belt when not moving.. Obvious design flaw.. Waiting for cable on back order.. Wonder why??
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
