Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Obviousman Don't Waste The Extra Money
I purchased an electric start Honda because I thought that it would be easier on my back to start. That did not work out as planned and here is why:
1. The battery will no hold a charge in between weekly cuttings.
2. You will not get more than about 4 cranks before the battery is dead. If you need to stop the mower while cutting you have a 80/20% percent chance that there will not be enough of a charge to restart the mower using the key.
3. This is where the rub really comes in, Honda sells a charger so that you charge the battery completely prior to using. The bad news is you must remove the battery from the housing to charge it and then if you charge the battery more than 24 hours you will kill it.
Bottomline I like the mower, it does a great job, the electric start is just an expensive decoration.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Carol SPEND THE EXTRA $100 IT'S WORTH IT!!
This is the Best mower I have ever bought.Right out of the box it was an easy set up.Love the fold-down handle with the easy"No Screws" just push knobs.Add the oil they give you and put in your gas & you are ready to mow.I turned the Key Start & on it went.The grass bag is a easy on/off with a carry handle so you can empty it easily.The Smart Drive lets you go as fast/or slow as you want which is a really nice feature. Very easy to adjust the wheels with heavy duty Lever's,which other mowers don't have.I am a older lady & did all the set-up & the mowing & I could not be happier with this Mower.Don't hesitate just "BUY IT".

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RetiredLady Only gas lawn mower I'll own
Someone broke into my locked shed and stole my one year old Honda lawn mower. I purchased the same model to replace it. I wouldn't be happy with any other lawn mower. I'm a 68 year old widow that needed an easy to use gas lawn mower to cut my large front yard. This lawn mower is easy to start, the key start charges while you mow the grass, it's self propelled and cuts without all of those clumps of grass being left all over the lawn.
I now have put an additional lock on the shed, another lock on my gate and even a cable and lock on the lawn mower.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mfig worth every penny!!
I have had several lawn mowers over the years and this one is by far the best. It has all the features (electric start, rear wheel drive, clip director) and surprisingly holds enough that the bag does not have to be emptied often. All of this from a name associated with quality and fuel efficiency. This mower has made a once dreaded chore now something to look forward to. My wife and I now have to flip a coin to see who gets to cut the grass. I definitely think this is a keeper and well worth the extra money. Would recommend to anyone that has been through several lawn mowers like myself.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mixbrix ABSOLUTELY THE BEST LAWN MOWER I'VE EVER OWNED!
I have always bought the "green" brand for most of my life, probably had 3 or 4 of them. Wasn't too happy with the last one, even though it lasted 4 years. Looked at all the brands, at all the stores, and this Honda was the most impressive to me. Got it home, took it out of the box, folded the handle up, added the oil and gas, and it started instantly using the key. I cut the front and back yard while the grass was still wet from the dew. Very impressive, no clumps left behind and all the clippings went in the bag. Emptied the bag only half as many times as the old mowers. I've always bought rear wheel drive, and this one is so much more powerful than the others. Got the entire mowing job done much quicker with this beauty! The only bad thing I can think of is, I should have bought a Honda years ago!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SunshineState What a Great Mower!!
The mower was almost all put together; except for the grass catcher bag, removing the protective coverings, and had to install oil and also just pull up handles and tighten them; at most about 10 minutes!! With the Smart Drive feature it goes at the pace you prefer and makes mowing so very easy! with the alternator the batter recharges itself so no need to have to hook up to charge after each cut! Most definitely this is my second choice mower -- my absolute first would be a robotic mower so I'd never have to be outdoors aggravating my allergies!
I believe this mower is the closest I've found to an automatic mower - love how easy it is to use!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Justin Nice mower
I purchased this mower about 2 months ago. I reviewed ratings and looked at features, and this one seemed like a safe bet. I feel this mower does a great job cutting the grass evenly. People complaining about clogging probably wait too long between cuttings. I will say that the electric start is not 100% reliable. It started fine out of the box, but there have been instances where is just cranked and I had to use the cord. If I were to do it again, I would save 100 bucks and not get the electric start. The mower works great, bags well and maneuvers well. I am very happy overall with this product, I just hope it lasts!
