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 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!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BinkyCC A mower that exceeds expectations!
Southwest Floirida has some of the toughest grass in North America to mow! In fact, Consumer Reports test their mowers about 20 miles from my home. My sod lawn is thick and full - I have had people stop by and ask me if my “grass is real?!” I purchased the Honda 21 in. 3-in-1 Variable Speed Self-Propelled Gas Mower with Auto Choke because of the Consumer Reports review and for the rating it received for mulching and because of it’s rear wheel drive. My previous mower was front wheel drive and I labored endlessly pushing it up the slopes in my yard. The rear wheel drive makes mowing on slopes so much easier, and the two blades are simply fantastic for mulching - the mulch is almost powder! The Honda engine will run and run and starts each time on the first pull. This is a mower that will exceed your expectations!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Sunnie OK but not the best
Purchased this mower approx 10 weeks ago to replace older version of same Honda model that was flood damaged. Starts first pull every time; mulches well. Seems sturdy and well built.
Variable speed control initially difficult to get used to; bumps in the lawn causes fluctuations in speed. Leaves random uncut blades of grass that were not experienced with a much less expensive push mower.
Transmission issues began to be experienced within 7 weeks after purchase - wheels lock up when trying to pull backwards such as when mowing around landscape; uneven clutch engagement. Will have to wait until end of growing season to get to shop.
Disappointed given Honda's reputation and cost of mower.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TonyW Learn to adjust
This mower being rear wheel drive plus the "paddle" buttons to operate self propel need some getting familiar with. The torque is such that you can pop a wheelie even with the grass bag on. It is all touch and feel of pressure on the paddles. As to cutting it is fantastic. The double blades cut small pieces of grass for mulching or bagging so you don't stop as often to empty bag. On the other side the bag will get heavy. It starts on the first pull so far and did right out of the box. Mower comes completely assembled except for handle that you just rotate up and lock down with two knobs. Add oil and gas and your cutting grass in 10 minutes max.
