The Husqvarna mower gets my vote for best gas lawn mower because it’s easy to start, powerful, and easily maneuverable. It does everything I want a lawn mower to do and nothing else. This is the mower my crew wants to use.
The Honda engine in the Husqvarna 7021P is a big part of the reason it gets my vote for best mower. The auto-choke, no-priming system gets the mower going right away. And it’s a powerhouse. You could pay more for a Honda mower, but you get the same engine in the Husqvarna at a lower price.
It’s a push mower, so energy isn’t siphoned off the engine to run a self propelling system. That said, it’s still easy to push thanks in part to double ball bearing in the wheels.
I also like that the handle adjusts to three levels to work for various heights. Our favorite gas mower had 4-point, 9 position cutting height adjustment for varying lawn conditions.
This may be best lawn mower for the money.
- Ball bearing wheels 8-inch front and 12-inch rear wheels that provides improved maneuverability in all types of grass
- single-lever deck adjustment
- discharge, bag, and mulch
- 21” deck
- 160cc engine
Pros: light, easy to start, powerful, cuts thick grass well.
Cons: handle may need reinforcing
Summary – 9/10
For an all around gas lawn mower than runs hard and lasts, this is the one.
