Buying a lawn mower is never a simple task. You would want it to mow like a beast, but purr like a kitten. It should be maneuverable, easy to maintain and comfortable to use. With so many models in the market, the choice is really tough. That is why I want to help fellow buyers make the best choice.

Product Description

Husqvarna 7021P is equipped with a Honda GCV160 engine. It is worth pointing out that this machine running on gas is approved for use in my home state of California since it is CARB compliant. The model has 3-in-1 system for disposing of grass clippings. Its height can be adjusted and so can be the handlebar. Its high rear wheels give it greater maneuverability. Let us now take a closer look at the different features.

Features

The motor is the first feature of the Husqvarna 7021P lawn mower to look into. Honda GCV160 has a cylinder displacement of 160cc. Its gross torque is 6.9 pound per foot. The engine is started with a standard recoil start.

The technical data clearly shows that the engine is powerful enough to provide for effective grass cutting irrespective of how tall, thick or dry the grass is. The Honda engines are known for their exceptional build, performance and durability. I have to say that these are among the best in the industry based on my experience.

The cutting blade of the Husqvarna lawn mower is well constructed and sufficiently sharp to cut the grass perfectly. In addition to evenly cut grass, you have 3 options for disposing of the clippings. The mulching one is the most useful, in my humble opinion as a professional gardener. If you switch to this mode, the grass clippings will be finely cut so that mulch is produced. The mulch falls directly on the ground and provides for the natural fertilization of the lawn.

The other option for disposing of the grass clippings is having them discharged on the side through the adjustable chute. This allows you to collect them easily and quickly and use them for different kinds of purposes including composting.

The even more convenient option available with Husqvarna 7021P is the collection of the grass clippings into the bag attached to the back of the unit. The clippings are collected directly in the bag so you simply have to detach it from the unit and throw the clippings away. The bag has a capacity of 2 bushels. This capacity is quite large especially in comparison to what other models have to offer. You will not have to stop your work every few minutes because the bag has got full.

You will be able to choose the perfect trim for your lawn with the height adjustment feature of the Husqvarna mower. The four-point cutting height adjustment guarantees that the height will be perfect and that the grass will be cut perfectly evenly. You can select from 6 different cutting height positions between 1.5 and 3.5 inches. I really like this kind of versatility because it allows me to get creative in landscaping. You can do the same too.

The 12-inch rear wheels of 7021P Husqvarna are the feature of this model that I truly love. They are sufficiently large for overcoming all kinds of terrains. It does not matter whether your lawn is perfectly flat or hilly. Their size and the double ball bearings provide for excellent maneuverability as well. You can cut the grass around trees and shrubs perfectly and without much effort.

This Husqvarna push mower is equipped with an ergonomic handle for easy and comfortable steering. The handle can be adjusted for your height for maximum convenience.

Capabilities

The cutting swath of the Husqvarna 7021P lawn mower is 21 inches. This is slightly above the average width cut by a single machine passage. You can expect to make a fairly small number of passes when using this unit no matter how large your lawn is.

Given that it is powered by a gas engine and that the fuel tank volume is 0.98 quart, you can expect this Husqvarna lawn mower to be perfectly capable of mowing a lawn of up to 1/2 acre. It is perfectly possible for it to be used on larger lawns. You just need to add fuel to the tank. In general, you can expect the unit to do the job very well. It complies with the green regulations and operates without producing much noise. These are extra benefits which I personally appreciate a lot.

Suitability

Given the capabilities of this Husqvarna mower, it can be used effectively for small to large lawns. It is quite versatile in this respect. It will do a good job on hilly terrains and in any weather and this gives it an even more universal appeal. It is a practical choice for professionals as well.

Pros

The things which I really like about the Husqvarna 7021P lawn mower are:

  • Versatility in terms of cutting heights, clippings collection and overall operation
  • Capable of working on all kinds of terrains
  • Durability and reliability
  • Maneuverability
  • Ease of use
  • Fairly compact
  • 2-year warranty covering labor and parts

Cons

The drawbacks of the 7021P Husqvarna, in my opinion, are:

  • The engine does not have casing so you have to be a bit more careful when it comes to storage and maintenance. This is not a major problem, but it is worth taking into account.
  • The recoil start may have some difficulties in very cold weather. You just need to use a few pulls before the machine gets going. Again, this is not a big issue.

Conclusion

In conclusion, the Husqvarna 7021P push lawn mower is a good choice for people with lawns of different sizes. It is powerful, reliable and versatile. You should certainly consider it.
