10 reasons to buy

  • Various users were pleased with the Husqvarna HU700L’s easy start engine. It starts consistently and easily on the first or second pull.
  • The mower is a breeze to assemble out of the box.
  • Expert reviewers loved that the mower left no visible wheel tracks because of its wheels being staggered.
  • A good number of users appreciated that the mower could cut against the fence line because the deck extends beyond its wheels.
  • Most purchasers liked the mower’s powerful Honda engine. Lawns looked professionally cut.
  • The mower’s washout port worked very well in cleaning the mower’s deck.
  • Some buyers valued the adjustable handle height which made mowing comfortable for users of various height.
  • The mower does a good job in vacuuming leaves thanks to its powerful engine.
  • A few individuals liked the powerful and adjustable self–propel feature. Users can easily adjust the mower’s speed.
  • One buyer commented that the mower had padded grips that made mowing more comfortable.

3 reasons not to buy

  • Many owners found it difficult to pull the mower backwards and disengage the self-propelled wheels.
  • Some people remarked that the mower did not come with mulching blades out of the box.
  • A user noted that mulching left a line of grass that did not look good.

Bottom Line

The Husqvarna HU700L houses a 160cc Honda engine offering reliable start up and professional looking cuts. The mower’s variable speed self-propel system and adjustable padded handles made mowing comfortable for most. The mower, however was difficult to maneuver in reverse. Also, the lack of a stock mulching blade and the mower leaving a line of unpleasing cut grass when mulching left some buyers to prefer cutting or bagging. With all that said, the Husqvarna HU700L’s generous list of features is still more than enough to get the job done.
