Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bob Best lawnmower I ever owned!
Honda mower was easy to assemble and started quickly after I had put in gas & oil (supplied). Instructions were easy to follow. The mower works great. I love the mulching feature. It mulches the grass into fine particles so there is no bunches of grass on the lawn.
I have a large lawn, about 1.5 acres, and this mower handles the operation without problems.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Matt Great first mower!
This is our sons first lawn mower and he is thrilled! He's almost 12. It is very easy start, use, and keep clean. I know he will get years of use out of this mower. We are very please that he can cut our yard and begin to save up by mowing other yards in the neighborhood without us worrying about a breakdown.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ey128 Perfect Cut
After backing over our 12 year old TroyBuilt, this was a major upgrade! Right out of the box the Honda cranked on the first pull. My yard received a perfect cut!! One of the huge pluses with this model is that the handle bars fold up very easily and stores much better in my small storage area.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by treehugger If you're small and have issues such as a bad back or knees look elsewhere. This is very heavy and the back bar under the bag area is too low to the ground. These things make this mower very hard to maneuver if you're not strong enough. There are times when you need to make tight turns or go backwards - like getting out of the shed and this is difficult. The self-propel feature is also a bit too much if you're small. This thing drags me across the lawn if I'm not careful. If you're large enough and strong enough to hold this thing back and maneuver it, you'd love the power. For me the 45 pound push mower was easier to use.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Yardguy Excellent Performance and Easy Setup
I've purchased several of these mowers over the years (for my grown kids when they bought a house and myself) and each has performed well. This unit started on the first pull and operated well in both mulch and bag mode. The engine seems strong and capable of handling tall and thick grass. The height adjustment is easy, the bag size appropriate and easy to transfer to 33 gallon or larger trash bags, and the unit is easy to clean. The blades arrived sharp and efficient in the mulch mode. Overall I am very pleased so far. The extended warranty seemed like it was reasonably priced, although I've never needed it on the previous mowers purchased.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EZ Honda Mowers are Amazing!
I am very pleased with my new Honda self-propelled mower. It starts on the first pull every time and is a lot quieter than all previous mowers I have owned. It really mulches well and does not throw clippings all over the place, really minimizing sweeping after cutting the grass. The paddles to control the self-propelled speed are comfortable when set correctly allowing you to hold the mower handle and walk behind easily, pressing the paddles with your palms of your hand - not your thumbs. It's great having a left and right paddle attached to each other so you can remove either hand during cutting and you still go forward. I would highly recommend this mower to all needing a quality mower that works like a Honda - excellent!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AdamPNW Great machine
Hey, for those of you who rely on reviews to purchase things - listen up. I went back and forth on spending $399 for a machine i use once a week to cut my lawn, which is pretty big. I could spend $299 on a lesser machine and hope it doesnt fall apart after one season, but obviously i chose differently. Honda is a brand name and you get what you pay for. This machine is heavy and definitely has a steel deck. I put oil in and filled it with 89 octane and away it went. Assembly is as simple as folding the handle up. I adjusted the four wheels up one notch and adjusted the handle bar to the tallest setting, along with the drive lever. Its cuts beautifully and has plenty of power. Dont buy anything else - get this one for a decent size lawn. Seriously.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smbstoli It's a Honda!
Title says it all! Just open the box add oil and gas and you are good to go! Starts on the first pull... The mulching on this dual bladed mower is amazing and make the bag only needed for leaf clean up. I handed down my 15 year old Honda mower to my son after he bought his first home a couple of months ago and i expect that this mower will give me the same or better service. I highly recommend Honda mowers over any other brand out there. They used to be considerably more expensive than their competition but but now it is a no brainer. $400.00 for what I estimate 20 years of service is a bargin!
