  • A handful of users remarked that the self-propel lever cable can gradually grow slack and slow down the mower.
  • At least one purchaser noted that the spark plug and magneto deteriorated after one season.
  • Some buyers were disappointed that the engine did not have spare parts available.

Bottom Line

A lightweight all-wheel-drive mower, the Husqvarna LC221A has good fuel efficiency and handles hilly lawns and tough terrain very well. It is easy to use and control. The mower’s mulching and bagging capabilities make it a pretty good option to consider. However, the mower’s deck design leaves the belts exposed to wear and tear from debris. Also, with no option for an engine replacement or engine spare parts available, this mower will require extra maintenance and care. With all that said, this mower can still bring lawn care enthusiast good value for the price with proper the maintenance.
