Husqvarna pedestrian mowers

Evening all, I'm looking at the husqvarna LC 353v pedestrian lawn mower. Mainly because of its low weight - I have a couple of awkward lawns in not so flat High Wycombe.

I'm not expecting a professional machine, but obviously it does need to be good enough. 

I've not been able to poke and prod one in the flesh. 

I know the husqvarna dedicated mulching mowers have been positively mentioned on here a few times, but any thoughts on their other mowers would be much appreciated, thanks.

  • Hi there.  I run a husky 63cm variable speed.  I bought it because of weight (29kg) due to lifting it in and out of the truck,  height ( so it would fit where i wanted it to) and speed ( the variable speed was quicker than the non variable). In addition it has a plastic deck. No rust.  It pucks up well in the wet. Basket isn't too hard to empty. I now ruin it with a mulching plug most of the time with no worries. It's no grief at all for the 3 years of running.  The only gripe is the folding mech on the handle could be better. Only fault to date is the variable speed has stopped working. Sortable. Just need to do it. Ultimately still very happy with it. No regrets. 

    • Thanks William, that's what I was hoping to hear.
