Rated 3 out of 5Â by BeeJay Well, the motor runs good
I was looking for a low frills, mulching mower that is not self propelled. This Honda seemed to be a good choice to replace my rusted out mower.
I was impressed with the ease of engine start. After filling up with oil, I wanted to slowly pull the starter rope a few times to distribute the oil before I fired it up. Much to my surprise, the engine started on the first pull. Again, I was pulling very slow because I didn't want the engine to start right away.
I am very disappointed with the quality of the cut. This has been a cool wet summer for us, and the grass is growing like crazy. I needed to put the deck almost all the way up because the grass was long. After taking a couple cuts, I noticed the grass was popping back up after I mowed it. The cut is very uneven, and it looks like I'm missing sections. It's very apparent that his mower does not like longer grass. It pushes the grass over, mows some of it, then much of the grass pops up behind you still uncut. I had much better luck when putting the side discharge chute on. When side discharging the grass, it cuts much smoother. The side chute does an excellent job of distributing the clippings so that you down get rows of cut grass clippings. The clippings are broadly discharged and the mower doesn't leave piles. I'm hoping that Mulching improves once the grass dries out a bit, and I'm cutting less length of grass. Just a side note, the grass I was cutting wasn't that long. Any mower should have easily been able to handle it without the grass springing back up behind you.
I was also disappointed at the weight of the mower. For being a stripped down model, it sure is a lot heavier then any other push mower I owned. I'm hoping that the extra weight is due to heavy duty construction. I'll push the extra weight as long as the mower will last longer. This mower look exactly like the self propelled version, without the drive mechanism.
Lastly, I chose the free "ship to home" option. Unfortunately, the delivery required a signature. UPS kept trying to deliver in the middle of the day when no one was home. I almost had to pick up the mower at the local UPS center, which is much farther away then my local Home Depot. Luckily, a helpful UPS driver made a list ditch attempt at the end of his route to deliver, and I just happen to be home. If I knew that a signature was required to deliver, I would have just had the mower shipped to my local Home Depot for pickup.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Chuck expensive but most of the time you get what you pay for
Shipped very quickly directly to my home. Packed very well without any damage. Raised handles and tightened wing nuts was all assembly required. Make sure you remove the oil check stick and turn the mower on it's side and remove any oil left in mower before before adding supplied oil. You can use entire bottle supplied without danger of overfilling. Filled with gas and started on first pull. Mows very well and starts first pull every time. You can buy five or six lawn mowers in a lifetime or you can buy one or two Honda's. I have worked on lawn equipment all my life and nobody makes a better motor than Honda. Change the oil and sharpen the blade every year and keep it reasonably clean and it will last many years.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by adivedog Honda push mower is great
Ordered online, wasn't supposed to be here for about 10 days, but arrived in two. Pretty much ready to go out of the box. Started right away and no problems at all.
The quality is great, I like having the adjustable speed control. Last mower just ran at one speed all the time.
If I could of, I would give it a 4 1/2 stars as not too much is perfect, and only used it three times.
No complaints at all. If I had to nitpick something, it is that the side discharge chute comes off easily if you bump into a fence or something. But it also attaches easily.

The mower is fine but it is not what I ordered. The one on the website is a different model. You may want to update your website. Unfortunately for me the model advertised by home Depot is no longer being sold by honda so I decided to keep the newer model even though I bought the one with the throttle control. It is quite enough that I can live with
it. Having been through this experience with the home Depot website I probably will not order anything from you all again - but I like the local McAllen store.
