Husqvarna LC221AH, 21 in 163cc Briggs & Stratton Walk Behind Mower Review

5 minutes

Here we have a very efficient front-wheel-drive lawnmower, which adapts better to flat lawns but also manages rough terrain.

The Husqvarna LC221AH self-propelled lawnmower provides an optimal working environment and can be easily landed for various terrain obstacles thanks to the 8-inch front wheels and 12-inch rear wheels, which roll spectacularly in various areas.

These slightly rolling wheels come with double-sealed bearings. The transmission system is powered by an easy-to-start and highly reliable Briggs & Stratton engine.

The height adjustment of the handle in 3 positions allows the cutting comfort regardless of the size of your height. Those looking for multiple cutting options will be pleased that the LC221AH offers three options: side ejection, mulching and sagging.

The features and benefits of Husqvarna LC221AH Walk Behind Mower


Efficient and ergonomic, the LC221AH Lawnmower is durable, reliable and delivers world-class results. The powerful and reliable engine starts right from the first pull and the powder-coated cutting platform protects against dirt.

With its superior valve design, the 140 cc engine runs cooler, offers superior performance and features a Super Lo-Tone muffler for quieter operation.

When packaged, the lawn mower collects the grass and debris like a champion, and its large grip makes it easy to empty the contents while keeping it away from your body so it does not get dirty.

Ease of use

The variable speed self-propelled front-wheel drive system means that the mowers easily and evenly step behind the machine and enjoy a walk in the yard on a pleasant day.

Large wheels with ball bearings provide exceptional maneuverability on all grass types, while the mower deck’s washing opening makes it easy to clean debris.

Simply connect the hose, open the water and wash the platform well. Regardless of whether it is a high, average or shorter side, the height grip adapts to a suitable height for you.

This lawnmower is easy to assemble and comes with oil. Once you’ve assembled the grips, add oil and gas and pull the cable, you’re done!

Cutting quality and options

Some might say that there are too many plastic parts in this lawnmower where the plastic parts should not be. For example, the exhaust duct may break due to excessive spring pressure or violent shocks against an obstacle.

In addition, there are self-propelled mowers on the market that run at higher speeds, and the engine is not as powerful as some on the market.

On a positive note, mowers will love the front-wheel-drive system, which has self-propelled capacity, and because of its easy maneuverability, gardening obstacles are not that important.

The LC221AH cuts cleanly and feeds important roots at medium height without any problems.

In addition, this lawnmower does not fail when crossing steep trenches, and luckily the engine will not be flooded, as is the case with some machines.

Before each use, check for any loose fasteners, clean and check the grass catcher (if used), check the tires and drive wheels, and check the oil level. Be sure to subject the lawnmower to general cleaning after each use on the platform and below.

Other maintenance tasks that should be performed regularly include cleaning under the gearbox cover, checking the drive belt and pulleys, checking the blade for sharpness, and lubricating the machine.

You should also check the air filter and tires and from time to time check the spark plug and fuel system. The detailed manual covers all maintenance requirements.

The rear baffle between the rear wheels minimizes the possibility of objects being thrown out and damaging the user. The LC221AH mower meets the safety standards of the American National Standards Institute and the US Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Is it worth it to buy?

This is a solid lawn mower for little money, especially compared to lawnmowers in its price range.

The LC221AH is suitable for self-propelled machines and mowers will appreciate that the mulching option saves fertilizer costs while the filling option saves time as you do not have to rake the leaves.

Keeping the mower clean for a long time will extend its life. This is very easy with the washing opening of the mower deck. So surely this will be worthwhile for you.

Final Verdict:

With a straight handle through the bag, the uninterrupted distance of the mower between the handles facilitates the removal of the bag. Users will also appreciate the mowing position, which makes it quick and easy to clean the bottom of the housing.

The LC221AH mower is self-propelled and provides height adjustment for mowers of all sizes. You can bag, bounce or throw cuts from the side to instantly feed the yard with fertilizer.

The large rear wheels offer excellent maneuverability, even on hard roots that penetrate a few meters. This self-propelled lawn mower copes pleasantly with rough terrain.
