Superior maneuverability, endowed with a powerful Honda Engine and efficient with small to medium yards, the Husqvarna 7021P  lawn mower is a complete lawn mowing package designed for mulching, side discharge and rear collection. It draws heavily on the more popular yet smaller brother the 5521P petrol mower, while sporting a larger wheel set and engine block.

In-depth Review of the Husqvarna 7021P Lawn Mower

Ease Of Use

Straight out of the box, the Husqvarna 7021P comes pre-assembled. One only has to extend the handles, tighten them and set the operation height to begin mowing. The Honda engine is extremely reliable and the first time you start it after adding the engine oil and topping the gas tank, it astonishingly kicks into life with the first pull. Just remember to always keep the choke on when cold starting. Thankfully, the choke disengages the moment your mower rumbles into life to avoid flooding of the engine. As for maneuvering it over tree roots and other obstacles, the large wheels at the back work great. Just don’t set the height too close to the ground if you have an uneven surface as this tends to leave clumps in the mulching mode

 

 

Cut Quality

Husqvarna 7021P easy storage


The foldable handle makes storage easy

Simply splendid is all that I can say. Be it a large outgrowth, harder older blades, wild growth, soggy patch or uneven terrain, the mower chops through everything in its way and it never misses a spot. The larger engine provides near 7 pound of torque per foot that is completely used by the blades to ensure a proper consistent cut each and every time.

 

Height Adjustment

You get a total of 9 height settings ranging between 1.25 to 3.5 inches. Changing the height on this Husqvarna mower is easy and accomplished with the help of a slider. Once set, you can alter it between runs by stalling the motor and changing the height.

 

Motor Power

The Husqvarna 7021P features an 160cc Honda GCV160 Carb-Compliant Engine

Honda 160cc engines are rare on lawn mowers especially those with a 21 inch cutting deck so as far as the motor goes, you won’t find any better or stronger than this one. However, it comes at the cost of more noise, which thankfully is a deeper growl than an ear-splitting shriek. Remember to use the exact oil type mentioned in the Honda engine manual as it makes a huge difference in longevity and performance.

 

Maintenance

Nothing much to maintain with any Husqvarna lawn mower. Just remember to regularly change the oil, winterize before long storage and set the choke on every cold start. As for the blades, they are designed to last for at least a couple of years and thankfully can be sharpened by any repair shop

 

Cost Effectiveness

If you have a large lawn, something that needs more attention or simply the need to mow with more power, then the Husqvarna 7021P is exactly what you need. Unfortunately, it isn’t something those with a smaller lawn will want because of the larger engine and hence larger appetite for fuel. Moreover, at the price it retails, it does happen to be an expensive 21 inch gas mower.

    I have had this mower for more than a year now and finally decided to write a review. Works and runs great, just like it did when I first got it. A couple tightenings here and then, but other than that, I am very happy with the purchase. I keep it covered, but outside and it has held up nicely.

    + PROS: Good performance. Easy to start. Low on noise.
    - CONS: A little difficult in adjusting the height as I cannot see any numbers on the adjuster.

    This is not a self-propelled model according to Husqvarna. You may want to consider moving this review to the Push Mower section

      You were right Jim. Unfortunately I did not delete the word “self propelled” in the product info template. Thanks for letting me know!

    I bought my Husqvarna mower three months back and still it is working with the same pace. It has an amazing power to cut the grass and can even cut the weeds on hilly regions. It has a flexible and foldable handle. I want to tell one thing to all those who are buying it that it might take 4-5 pulls to start initially but afterward it starts at most in second pull. It holds too much gas, but it’s ok as it is a powerful gas mower. Its height adjustment feature is remarkable as it can be adjusted in 9 ways.
