Rated 5 out of 5Â by mrstevej Nice Mower
I have used this mover 5 times on my .75 acre lot. The mower runs well and only gets bogged down when mulching very thick and damp grass. Has a good speed on the self propelled motor but can be cumbersome to push manually.
My only con is when working in tight spaces it does not move backwards well. The rear flap is very ridged and actually pops the back tires off the ground when it is going backwards. Then when pushing forward it brings them off the ground again and can not propel it self forward. I guess this is a safety feature but seems very annoying to me when using.

A fixed speed mower is the only mower that works well on steep slopes and the Honda HRS216 mower works extremely well. After replacing the low lift blade that came on it with a twin blade it also cuts extremely well. The engine starts first pull and doesnât stall in high wet grass. This mower replaced a Toro self propelled fixed speed mower that lasted 40 years until the drive was so worn it would shear the drive shaft pins. Any mower made today isnât likely to last 40 years as those days are gone. Most small engines on mowers today have an aluminum bore cylinder and doesnât have an oil pump which my last the Toro did. That is one reason it lasted so long and it still runs to this day. This same mower also came with plastic wheels that never broke so plastic wheels are not a problem.

Bought this self-propelled mower from Home Depot back in 2006,thing still runs strong to this day.
Have changed the oil a couple times and the plug once,other than that,have done no other maintenance and still runs great.
Only bad part is it is difficult to pull backwards,having a little issue with the self-propel function(always on).
But I am in the market for a newer one anyway here soon.Overall,great buy,can't go wrong with this mower.

This mower starts easily and runs great. It mows beautifully and climbs inclines and dips with ease. It handles deep grass very well. Unfortunately, it has some cheap plastic parts which are unexpected on a mower of its price. The throttle is a flimsy plastic lever and the cables are attached with bundle straps. Certain non-stressed parts on the engine are plastic. I have had "cheapo" mowers in the past that seemed more substantial. While I can't fault how it performs, it does seem that Honda tried to see how little they could give you for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by BJJH Best decision I made for myself!
I have allways paid someone to mow my lawn,than I bought an electric law mower not too long ago. Being a women and weighting 130 lbs and in my 70's, I did ok with this but did not like the job it did.
So, I purchased this walk behind self propelled lawn mower from Home Depot. I had no idea how to operate it. The instructions were very clear with an easy assenbly. Wish I had done this sooner. I highly recommend this product to anyone no matter your education, weight, man or women. Does a great job and I love it!
