The recoil starter allows me to turn the mower easily. 7021p offers a cutting width of 21 inches which is large enough to reduce the number of passes needed to clear my yard.
Areas that measure up to a third an acre require 20 to 22 inches of mower width. Fewer passes mean less time and work used for mowing. I can also adjust the wheels from a height of 1.5 to 3.5 inches to accommodate different lawn conditions.
The discharge process is highly facilitated by the discharge deflector. I can also collect my clippings with dust-resistant rear bag. 7021P provides six height adjustments but i didn’t find a single adjustment lever. This means I have to raise and lower each wheel individually. However, this distributes weight on all levers thus preventing wear and tear.
Multiple height adjustments provide a good cut to my lawn thus maintaining a healthy and lustrous look.
This unit is designed with a large wheels which can be raised or lowered to set the cutting blade to the right height. This is a rotary wheel mower equipped with 8-inch front wheels and 12-inch rear wheels. These wheels are mounted with ball bearings which makes the operation seamless. They provide a smooth and stable ride whenever I am pulling this machine. The whole is unit is light enough which provides great maneuverability. I can move through uneven terrains, bumps and tight areas.
Husqvarna 7021P offers three mowing options. I can mulch, bag or discharge the grass clippings. The side discharge functionality allows me to spread out clippings in neat rows on the lawn. Bagging process is facilitated by a rear bag that collects the clippings for storage. Bagging my grass also helps to control fungal growth since I live in a very humid area.
The mulching functionality allows me to recycle the grass. Here, I can engage the mulching plug for the blades to cut grass into fine mulch. These clippings breakdown into nitrogen and nutrients. Returning vital nutrients into the ground provides a healthier and greener lawn. Therefore, i don’t need to buy any fertilizer.

Husqvarna is a reputable brand when it comes to outdoor power products. The Honda engine provides 7021P enough power for clearing my mid-sized lawn. It supplies blades with enough power to cut long grass. My favorite feature is the 3-in one operation. Husqvarna 702 IP provides bagging, mowing and side-discharge options. The whole unit rolls perfectly with a high and adjustable wheel set. Also, the automatic choke system allows me to start the unit easily. Personally i have been impressed by the performance of this unit.
There are few downsides most of which are associated with packaging like broken wheels. I also feel that the model will look better with a painting on the underside. A more sturdy deck would have also been better. Otherwise, most of its inherent features and performance makes this unit perfect for cleaning and managing my lawn. It is also offered at a reasonable price making it one of the best walk behind gas powered lawn mowers.
