Intrepid homeowners, determined to mow more securely on hilly terrain or damp grass, can now experience in a walk mower the kind of traction and handling they can get in an automobile — All-Wheel Drive!

This spring, Husqvarna, the world’s largest producer of outdoor power products, is launching All-Wheel Drive walk mower. Designed for uneven terrain and the toughest mowing conditions, the sleek yet rugged HU800AWD features a heavy-duty steel deck and a powerful Honda GCV 190 engine. Complementing its All-Wheel Drive feature, the HU800AWD has wheels with an aggressive tread pattern, which provides additional traction and maneuverability.

The new Husqvarna All-Wheel Drive mower was on display October 24-26 at the Green Industry and Equipment Expo (GIE+EXPO) trade show, booth #9094 inside and #7800D and 7801D outside, at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville.

“With our new All-Wheel Drive mower, we are giving homeowners the ability to mow comfortably, carefully and without damaging the lawn,” said Quinn Derby, Business Development Manager, Husqvarna. “We are proud to offer an All-Wheel Drive mower, continuing our legacy of innovation in the outdoor power product industry.” 

While the All-Wheel Drive mower is new for 2013, it shares a number of features with the complete line of Husqvarna walk mowers, including: 

• 3-year warranty
• Side guard and grass comb, to improve edging performance
• Large, dust-blocking bag
• Premium, comfort-grip control bail to reduce operator fatigue
• Variable drive speed
• Water hose connector for easy deck cleaning 

The Husqvarna All-Wheel Drive walk mower is available exclusively at Lowe’s and authorized Husqvarna dealers nationwide for USD $499.95. To learn more, join the conversation by “liking” Husqvarna on Facebook ( and by following Husqvarna on Twitter (
