Is there any throttle control on this mower or is it always determined by the mower

My old mower has a throttle control for engine speed so it can be idled down when not actively cutting; does the throttle get controlled by this in some way? I assumed the thumb paddles are only for the transmission, and thought maybe it was linked so it throttled up when the drive was engaged, but the responses from a question about using it without the Smart Drive negated that. Is the engine always running at full cutting speed whenever it's started?
Asked by: Nick
No throttle control equals "bad" for cold starts.

Does this lawn mower's gas tank hold one full gallon or one full quart?

Someone asked this question earlier and most respondents said that it holds one gallon. My sense is that it holds far less than a full gallon of gas.
Asked by: Randy
The manual page 18 shows, Capacity: .025 US gal (.093 L) . It's a quart, but a lot more than my old push mower!

Do you have to use self propelled feature or can use it as a standard push mower without the self propelled feature?

I have a pretty flat yard and enjoy the exercise without using the self propelled feature, but my wife will probably use the self propelled feature. Will the wheels "lock up" if the self propelled is not engaged?
Asked by: Anonymous
Sure. And as an added bonus all those features you will not be using make the mower heavy for even more exercise.

21 in. 3-in-1 Variable Speed Gas Self Propelled Mower with Auto Choke is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 2004.

I have never left a review before but this is simply the best mower I have ever used. I have had it for about a year and not a single problem but I would expect that for any mower. What makes this mower extraordinary is it's auto choke easy start engine, intuitive easy to use drive system and it's light weight maneuverability. But the best feature is it's twin cutting blades. They do such a good job of mulching that I have only used the bag once. The mulch never clumps, never bogs down the mower and is virtually invisible no matter the grass length or how wet. This mower is so good that I plan on buying for my son for a house warming gift. I highly recommend this model, no need to go any higher in price!

I am a teen who own my own lawn service, so I have had to venture out and buy various types of lawn equipment. In doing so, I have discovered many things about all the big name brands and their quality. My dad owns the 2011 model of this mower, and has had wonderful luck with it, so I decided to venture out and buy another when my Toro lawn mower seized up out of the blue. I really like this mower: fuel efficiency, features, value, etc. However there are a few things worth noting about overall quality vs. my dad's 2011 model of this mower. Improvements: Cutting height- My dad's mower cannot cut at very tall heights; thankfully two extra cutting heights have made this mower more practical for me. Ease of transport- My dad's mower required you to unscrew two plastic pieces on both sides of the handle bars to fold them down. It is a very slow process, and can be quite a pain. This mower now has two pieces that pop out and twist to the side allowing you to fold the handle bars in one second flat. Mowing options- While this mower still cannot side discharge, changing from mulching to bagging is now a breeze. A single switch on the deck allows you to change from mulching to bagging without having to remove a mulching attachment. The bad: Since the price-point of this mower has changed relatively little over the past 6-7 years, Honda has had to cut quality to meet inflation. This is very apparent when you are starting the mower. The Auto Choke system has changed, and takes 2-3 pulls to start (versus one pull for the 2011 model). Honda has also made the bag thinner, which allows small pieces of grass to fly out of it, and turns it a dusty-brown when some become trapped within. The wheels have below average grip, so it will occasionally struggle going up steep hills. The plastic back flap also bends and warps over a short period of time, not visually appealing, but it does not hurt the performance of the mower. While there are some negatives to the overall performance and value of this mower, it's easy enough to overlook those, and I expect to get many years of service out of this mower.

Been a Craftsman and Toro owner, both of them very good and reliable, price was adequate. This time because of the reviews I decided to go with Honda and I am super happy this thing looks great and well build it is very smooth and started on the first pull out of the box, the mulching is tiny and disappeared without traces thanks to the dual blade, it has this handle that controls variable speeds and it is fast you will get a work-out at full speed, traction is very good. The cut is very even. I hope it last as long as my other lawnmowers because I don't want to go back. Very happy with this purchase. Yes I am in Florida and in winter we still have to do the lawn. :)

I would have given it 5 starts but when I opened the box there was no bag. I called Home Depot and they said to come right it and they would take care of me. They did and I went home to one of the best mowing experiences I have had. Right out of the box, after adding the oil and gas and it started on the first pull, and a very easy pull it was. The variable speed lets you determine how fast you go, not the mower pulling you along. The lever that switches between Mulch or bag works easily and the bag is very easy to put on and off. It is a great machine that doesn't take up much room in my already crowded garage.

It has rear wheel drive, and a twin blade MicroCut system. I have never seen such small/fine bag clippings until I bought this lawn mower. The Honda engine is a definite plus too. I did my research of the available walk behind self propelled lawn mowers and finally decided on this one. I highly recommend this lawn mower.

After living with my old Craftsman for 28 years, this Honda is a huge leap forward in ease of use. Easy to start (one MUST check the fuel on/off valve before starting), self-propelled, have to get used to the speed paddles, this thing will take you to jogging speed if you don't watch it!! Fit and Finish are Honda quality. ONLY complaint - the clippings bag doesn't seal across the top (by design) and if you're clippings are dry, they tend to "leak" past the top, blowing back at you. This is the last mower I'll ever buy, the quality of this thing is excellent!!

Assembled easily in minutes, and cranked on the first pull. My bermuda lawn gets scalped once early each year, so I set the mower to its lowest setting. Adding to the challenge is the fact that my lawn is covered with last years leaves. I started in bag mode, but quickly re-evaluated after filling the bag with leaves in one pass. Switching to mulch mode, countless trips to empty the bag were avoided. My old mower is a Honda, so I expected quality performance. Still, I was pleasantly surprised at the results in mulch mode. Granted, I needed double passes on occasion to completely mulch the leaves, but double passes were much quicker than continually dumping the bag, and the motor never stalled. I was skeptical about the variable speed control, especially after reading the 1* reviews. Once again, pleasantly surprised! It took some experimentation to get the adjustable paddles in a desirable position, which for me was rather low, so that no matter how far I depressed them, the speed never got very high. Many with poor reviews cited speed control and thumb fatigue as issues. My instinct was to lay my thumbs on the paddles too, but Honda's promo video shows that the proper grip has the pad of the thumb knuckle laying on the paddles, with thumbs either above, or wrapped under the grip. In this manner, rolling the wrist slightly toggles the mechanism, rather than using thumb leverage. (Honda's promo video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A5ikBT_DOkE ). It was easy to control acceleration and no hand cramps at all. Mower started cold, started hot and the transition of the auto choke was undetectable. A flawless performance today, and I expect years of the same. Pros: easy start, flawless auto choke, no stalls, good mulch quality Cons: bag is a bit smaller than the previous model. Could be problematic with very high/thick grass, but shouldn't be a problem for once-a-week mowers. I recommend mulch mode for high grass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easiest starting, most trouble free mower I've ever owned. I bought this mower in June 2013......... Easiest starting, most trouble free mower I've ever owned. I bought this mower in June 2013...... I cut about 3/4 acre of grass at least once a week. It is fixing to start its fourth season of grass cutting. This has been the most trouble free mower I have ever owned. Never fails to start. I try to use only ethanol free gas but sometimes that just doesn't happen. When I'm done cutting I will close the fuel shutoff valve and run the carburetor dry to keep gas from varnishing in the bowl. Then it takes two pulls to start. I hate bagging grass so I love the mulching feature. There are two sets of blades, one above the other so it mulches the cuttings very well. The shelf propelled feature is variable speed and helps with the hills. Just maintain it and keep the blades sharp and you will be happy with this mower for a long time. My son borrowed mine when his quit and he liked it so much he bought one for himself.
