CHARLOTTE, N.C., March 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- From hills to wet grass to

with unique All-Wheel Drive technology, engineered to tackle the toughest
mowing challenges.

Alongside the launch of the HU800AWD, Husqvarna is asking consumers to share
stories of how they "Challenge the Impossible" in their everyday lives.
Entrants must first "like" Husqvarna USA on Facebook, then submit a written
entry (150 words or less) and a photograph to www.husqvarna.com/us/stories.
The entire promotion will run from March 11^th through August 19^th, and will
recognize a phase one winner in late May and the phase two winner in late
August. At the conclusion of both phases of the promotion, a panel of judges
will evaluate entries based upon creativity and originality. Their top three
finalists are then voted on by consumers on the Husqvarna USA Facebook page,
with both grand prize winners being awarded an outdoor prize pack valued up to
$5,000.

"Husqvarna is about Challenging the Impossible and being inspired by the
pursuit of the challenges we face ahead," said John Marchionda, Vice President
Husqvarna. "The new All-Wheel Drive mower was engineered to help our consumers
tackle impossible lawn care challenges. However, from conquering an unruly
lawn to trekking cross-country to a remote travel destination, our consumers
challenge the impossible every day. We want to hear their stories and reward
them for their work."
