Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gk59 Very nice machine
Easy enough to set up, removed from box, set the handle, assembled grass bag (can use with or without), added oil and gas, turned the key and it started right up. Very nice cut, easy enough to empty the bag. Haven't had a self propelled in many years, going to take some getting used to, but I feel that I will really like it!

I had a Sears Craftsman lawn mower for over 20 years, and eventually, it died on me. Did some research online and decided to try one of the new battery operated lawn mower from EGO. The concept of not having to deal with gas, oil, air filter and yearly maintenance was attractive to me. After using this battery operated lawn mower for roughly a month, I noticed it did not provide enough suction under the mower, which led to "poor mulching" on my yard. Since I "mulch cut" 98% of the time, I can not deal with the inadequacy of this mower. Needless to say, I return it and decided to go back to a "gas" lawn mower.
I have always heard about the Honda lawn mower's reliability and cut quality, so I decided to give them a try. I bought this model for several reasons:
1) Electric Start - great to have, especially for those days when you don't want to pull the starter rope
2) Twin Blades - since mulch cutting is important to me, this design will definitely grind up the clippings well
3) 3-in-1 Clip Director - no extra tools needed for "bagging" or "mulch" cutting, very convenient and lastly
4) Honda GCV160 Engine - reliable engine which starts every time
Normally, I would wait about 30 to 45 days of using any new lawn mower, before writing a review. However, I am so HAPPY with the result of this mower that I had to write this review. Just like the ad, it starts up every time I use the "electric start" key. As for the "mulch" cutting capability, it grinds up the clippings so finely, that they fall into the turf excellently. The Twin Blades cutting design is a WINNER, and my lawn has never look better. Even though I have to deal with gas, I am willing to put up with this for a "SUPERIOR" cut every time I use this lawn mower. I definitely recommend this lawn mower, you will not be disappointed in the reliability and quality of this "awesome" machine!!!!!

Electric start is not as robust as I'd like. Engine takes several seconds to rev up. The mower is very heavy. Powered well and can get away from you if not careful. Variable speed controls are easy to overuse. Hook points on rear of mower become filled with grass clippings and constantly need cleaning when replacing bag after emptying. A few minor tweaks and less weight would be nice.

Great mower so far, only have owned it for 3 weeks, easy to setup and use, I like the electric start and rechargeable battery no cord to plug in, it recharges from running the mower..... I like it!

I have worked on lawnmowers for a long time. I have also had a part time small engine repair business where I worked on machines for others. I have never owned a Honda mower before and was shocked to learn that this mower was designed without an oil drain plug. That's right, no plug to drain the oil when it's time for a change. You have to either try to suck it out through the oil filler tube or turn the machine on it's side and let the oil run out all over the mower deck and onto the floor. I'll never buy another.

I am a 71 year old female and love to do the lawn mowing, but had such a hard time with getting my mower started. This mower, I just have to turn the key and it starts right up! I have a 5/8th acre lawn, and so far I am very happy with the mower. I am using the mulch setting, and it is doing a fantastic job.

Everything about this mower rates high..The price was also a little high..Other than that no problems so far..Would have liked to had a battery charger included to charge the battery in the spring after a winter of storage..In my case it is not possible to start it every month or so when stored..
