The HU800AWD offers grass collection, as well as mulching and a side bumper that doubles as a grass rake to pull in the grass for a clean trim. Also, it is equipped with a premium quick-pin 4-point adjustment for level cutting height and a water hose connector for easy cleaning of the deck. With a premium comfort grip control bail and variable-speed drive, the HU800AWD allows the operator to mow more comfortably and adjust the mowing speed according to the needs and condition of the lawn. Premium wheels with new rugged tread tires provide excellent traction without tearing the grass. The HU800AWD will be on display at GIE+EXPO 2012, and it will be available at Husqvarna independent dealers nationwide in January 2013. MSRP: $499.
