Can I use general automotive SAE 10W-30 for my Honda lawn mower?

how would you keep the side discharge open when using?

My old one we had to have an attachment to make the grass throw out the side...does it come with that?
Asked by: Anonymous
This mower comes with an insert that hold up the side cover. It is easy to install, and works fairly well.

Does this model or any of the Honda models have the larger wheels in the rear?

Asked by: Anonymous
Honda does not use different wheels in back on any of their lawnmowers. The argument for big wheels was for maneuverability, however, it has been shown that they do not help with that - and having used a neighbor's big wheeled mower, I agree. They do not seem to work. Also, Honda uses the rear wheels for the drive unit. As long as you remember to disengage around obstacles and turns, you will find that the wheels are fine. If you prefer to freewheel, do not engage the assist and the mower will run as a typical push lawnmower without assist.

When in drive mode, how does it handle around obstacles?

How does it handle making tight 180 degree turns for reverse cut passes? What about when it needs to be pulled backwards - is there any problem releasing the drive, disengaging the rear wheels and maneuvering rearward?
Asked by: Anonymous
Disengage the drive as you reach the obstacle, then free wheel around the obstacle, and reengage the drive as you go away from the obstacle. To disengage the drive, you simply release the drive lever. After a few times, you will get the hang of it and not even think about it as you do it.

21 in. Single Speed Gas Self Propelled Mower is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 88.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple durable mower I had this mower for 7 years before I lost it in a divorce. This machine is simple, durable and easy to use. I used it on my 1.56 acre lot for years before I decided to venture into the commercial side of landscaping. I ran this mower job after job and it performed great. You get what you pay for so if your looking for a simple side discharge/mulching lawn mower this is worth a look.

Engine is quiet compared to our last mower. My only problem is that it thinks it is a race horse. Is there any way to slow it down?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Honda Mower 1-speed Pleased with speedy delivery, ease of set-up, start on first pull, self-propels well up fairly steep slopes and very easy to operate, maintain and store. I have had a couple other brand mowers over the years but Honda is thumbs up THE VERY BEST. This single-speed, no-bagger is light weight and perfect for my needs. It does excellent job of mulching using one blade and leaves no "hay" rows to deal with. Of course, secret to care-free grass mulching is to mow only when grass is well dried, which also avoids clogging blade housing! No need to use the provided side-discharge unless perhaps grass somehow got extra tall and/or is not dry enough, in which case side discharge is big help. It has option to use 2 blades if you prefer. For me, one-speed self-propelled, no bag, single blade AND in-line fuel shut off are most appreciated. THANK YOU HONDA and HOME DEPOT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1st Honda Mower This was my first Honda mower. I purchased this mower because it was simply a rear drive, side discharge/mulcher. I did not want a mower with a bagger. This mower starts very easily and runs and cuts very well. The only thing that I do not like about this mower is the clutch lever hangs 8 - 10 inches below the handle bar. You must remove one hand from the handle bar and be very careful not to have your other hand wrapped around the handle bar or you will pinch your fingers when you bring the clutch lever up. Other than that I am very pleased with my Honda mower

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This model may come with defective mower deck. I chose this mower because it is light and has the side discharge function as opposed to the rear discharge. I have owned Honda mower before and it was great. This mower however comes with a defective mower deck. Out of the box the blade hits the deck. I have seen 2 mowers of this model with this same problem. The engine is great. But a mower is not just an engine. If the blade hits the deck then this is a useless mower. This is totally un acceptable. The quality control on this model of this mower is at best horrible. Honda should investigate this. I am almost certain that if you inspect other mowers made around this time of this model you will find the same problem. I don't know who is assembling these mowers whether it is Honda or somebody else they have to fix this. totally unacceptable.

I wanted a self propelled mower I could use to cut small brush/saplings. This does that. Simple one blade set-up. Good old side discharge. These Honda 160cc engines are very strong. It has better power delivery than a 190cc Briggs powered Craftsman I used (got it for free thank god). Took 5 minutes to get the mower took longer to unbox it! Once I added the oil, one pull and it was running! It's actually what I expected as my other Honda starts on the first pull as well. It's a little expensive for what you get, but in my opinion well worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from worth the money just what I wanted I have a lot of experience with mowers having grown up in a mower shop. This mower is exactly what I wanted, side discharge and mulch and no bagging. Honda has always built great engines but I am equally impressed with the rest of the mower. Discharges very well, haven't mulched yet. The long, rigid handle gives better leverage for maneuvering making the unit easier to use and feel lighter than it actually is. I also like the single speed SP unit for its simplicity, effectiveness and durability, you don't need multiple speeds if the one speed is right for you. I only use the self propelling for the hilly parts of my property and the speed is right for hill climbing. This mower also pushes as easily as a non-SP version so I can go quickly over sparse, flat areas when propelling isn't needed. For those reviewers who say the SP engagement bar is too far away, I recommend they bump the bar with their body which will engage the unit and bring the bar up to a thumb-reachable level. It isn't difficult, just get creative. I guess Honda wants to make sure the drive engagement is intentional and if it were closer people might grab it too easily by accident. This mower definitely isn't cheap but it is very well built and I expect it will last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great mower i bought this mower in late march i wanted to use it for a few months before i gave a review. i want to start with saying this honda mower does what it should, it mows the grass very well i wish everything every in life just worked. it is self propelled i am 52 and have no problem keeping up with it it starts on the first pull i have almost an acre with a steep little hill and i mow twice a week with no issues. the rear wheel drive was a little different but very easy to adapt to this thing is good on gas, easy to clean just use a garden hose. not a lot of bells and whistles you just turn on the fuel hold the blade control bar give it a pull and it starts hold the self propel bar down and your off. i had been using a craftsman self propelled with a 6.5 horse power briggs and stratton motor, the honda is lighter uses less gas mows cleaner, if you need a mower give this one a look, oh and the warranty seems good. i recommend this mower, i hope this helps.
