Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mbratton Best lawn mower I have ever owned.
This is the best lawn mower I have ever owned. The self propelled feature is a big help with having a yard with hills. It cuts very well.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ChicagoLawnMower23 Excellent lawnmower with some serious power
Ok so the primary reason I looked at a Honda lawnmower was the their reputation online and via the home depot in-store rep for good engines. I figured that's got to be the main thing you look at for long term value. So as expected the engine is strong. The acceleration control tabs things are awesome. Didn't have that feature when I bought my last lawn mower 15 years ago (we've been living in condos so didn't have the need for one). The double blade thing is awesome and lives up to the videos describing it. It turns the mulch into such small pieces that even in relatively thick grass. And lastly the power on this thing is awesome. It has so much rear wheel power that i literally can have one hand on this thing and it races across the lawn. But you can control the speed with the tab things on the handle because pushed all the way down it's way too fast lol. Anyways, great mower. Can't go wrong with Honda.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by LimaTime Wheel Bolt Broke before 1 year - lawn looks like a bad haircut
Purchased this because of the "honda" name and although this mower is super fast it hasn't lived up to the price tag. The wheel bolt broke off and we haven't even had this a year -- also if you look at the lawn it almost looks like a bad haircut somedays where there are spots that clearly weren't cut right. There has to be a better quality product for the price that you are paying for this at.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bill Honda 21 in. 3-in-1 Variable Speed Self-Propelled Gas Mower with Auto Choke THE BEST
Best lawnmower I have owned, and I have had many! Starts first pull every time, solid tight sounding engine. It would be nice if you could click lock the self propelled speed control, but other than that it is perfect! HONDA IS THE BEST!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by frcc Honda Self Propelled Mower
Manual has no section/directions for replacing belt.
Belt needed replacing within 30 days.
Home Depot did not carry belt even through they sold mower.
Dis-assembly for belt replacement is bizarre....and overly complicated.
Belt failed again with 30 days.
Mower holds very very little oil.
Mower starts well...........
Mower needs replacing within 6mo of purchase because of continuing drive belt failure
and difficulty in replacing same.
All stickers for operation/direction fell off within 3 mo
Suggestion,,,,spend another $500 and buy a commercial mower
Long time commercial customer of Home Depot,
Surprising poor quality for a Honda.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SoobyDooby Best Mower Ever for All Seasons!
This is the second Honda mulching mower I've owned. The last one I sold before moving to a condo. I find myself in a house with a park-like back yard, shaded by an awesome oak tree. The mower was fantastic for summer mowing -- I'd fed my St. Augustine grass very early and again early Spring, and it killed all the weeds (there were MANY) and the mulching mower made it look beautiful all summer.
The mower is easy to start, lightweight, easy to maneuver, and cuts beautifully. It was easy to assemble. The mulching feature really seems to promote healthy growth. The self-propelling feature makes it super easy to calibrate to my pace.
I highly recommend this mower.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Redsfan1973 Best bang for your buck quality made self propelled mower!
The mower was easy to put together right out of the box. I have used it 6-7 times now mowing my grass and the variable speed option on this mower makes it so easy to slow down or speed up where needed. It has taken 15-20 minutes off my mowing time as compared to my single speed 11 year old Craftsman push mower. It cuts so much better and it cuts the grass up finer with the dual blade system. I have 2 commercial grade pressure washers with the 390cc Honda engine that I use for my business that are always reliable and I read in a leading consumer magazine their push mowers were top rated and for $399 it was worth it. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Susycm Great compared to my Old Toro.
What I love: fine mulching even when grass is a bit long. Ease of changing from bagging to mulching is a simple lever. Great power...in fact it can run away with you if you don't watch it. Rear wheel drive is something I wasn't aware was important until I had it. Now I wouldn't do without it. And most important of all...my old Toro was harder and harder to start as it (and I) aged. It got so bad only my husband could start it. This one starts every time with one pull. I just love it. Only one caveat: it weighs 84 pounds, so when you have to disengage self-propulsion in tight places, it is heavy to maneuver.
