Tags: lawn care, outdoor, power equipment

Building on the successful 2013 launch of its first All-Wheel Drive (AWD) walk mower, Husqvarna — the world’s largest producer of outdoor power equipment — announces three new additions to its AWD lineup, offering dealers and users high-quality options at a variety of price points.

The new Husqvarna AWD models are:

• The HU675AWD, powered by a 675 Kohler engine, features a heavy-duty steel 2-in-1 cutting deck, a straight over mold bail system, an auto-choke and a mulch and rear bagging system.

• The HU725AWD powered by a variable speed 725ex with Ready Start auto-choke Briggs & Stratton engine, features a heavy-duty steel 3-in-1 cutting system allowing it to bag, mulch and side discharge.

• The HU725AWD/BBC features SingleStartTM which adds a blade brake clutch (BBC) feature to the HU725AWD model allowing the user to stop the blade to pick up debris or empty the bag, and a simple lever engagement turns the blade back on without needing to restart the mower.

Husqvarna AWD Walk Mower

The full line up of Husqvarna AWD walk mowers will be available beginning spring 2014.

Like the original HU800AWD model, each new Husqvarna AWD walk mower is designed to provide users with balance and power to all four wheels in hilly, uneven terrain and tough mowing conditions.* Each features a unique drive system and dual transmission, premium wheels with aggressive tread patterns to provide additional traction and maneuverability, a premium quick pin 4-point adjustment for level cutting height and a water hose connector for easy cleaning of the deck.

“Based on the positive feedback we received after the launch of the original AWD mower, we wanted to make the innovative technology widely available at different price points,” said Nick Schomer, Walk-Behind Product Manager, Husqvarna. “With three new pricing options and a variety of features, a wider range of users will be able to enjoy the benefits of All-Wheel Drive mowing technology with the launch of the new line.”

See Husqvarna’s AWD mowers in action in their new 30-second television commercial, which will run beginning February 23rd during the NASCAR Daytona race.

* OPERATE SAFELY: Mow across slopes, never up or down. Never operate on wet grass or excessively steep slopes.
