Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Rono What were the Honda Engineers Thinking
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.

Highly recommend this product. The reliability of the Honda engine alone is enough, starts right up and runs great, but add in the electric start and self propel makes it a winner all the way. Speaking of the self propel, I really like how it is adjustable (like a gas pedal does) push the lever down more and the faster it goes. You can set the pace to match your pace, much better than a set single speed that is on or off. Price is very reasonable for what you're getting and I am very glad I purchased it. Cuts very nice and does good job of mulching the clippings. I have not used the grass catching bag, but assume it works about same as any other.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pat This is my first electric start gas mower, it is so easy to use and does such a great job.
I have always used an electric mower because it was so easy to start. This mower beats any other I have ever owned. Starts right off, does an excellent mowing job. At first it was hard to adjust to a self propelled mower, but now I love it. I had also never used a grass catcher, but during dandelion bloom time, it kept them from going to seed in my lawn. As a woman, I highly recommend this mower.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CHON yes i purchased this one
VERY EASY TO ASSEMBLE- HAD PURCHASED ONE FROM S___RS RETURNED IT TO HEAVY TO HANDLE AND ASSEMBLE PULLED THIS HONDA OUT OF BOX FLIPPED UP HANDLE CLIPS SNAPPED INTO PLACE- POURED IN OIL THAT CAME WITH MOWER-POURED IN GAS- TURNED THE KEY AND OFF I WENT-I AM A SENIOR 71YRS- THAT NEEDED ELECTRIC START/BAD ROTATOR MUSCLES/ BUT USED THE PULL CORD TO SEE IF EASY AND YES IT WAS- NEED TO REMEMBER TO OPEN FUEL VALVE WHEN READY TO CUT AND THEN CLOSE WHEN DONE--ALSO STILL PRACTICING SPEED CONTROL- MOWER IS ABLE TO BE PUSHED IF NOT USING SMART SPEED KNOBS. TAKES PRACTICE TO SEE WHAT HEIGHT IS BEST FOR YOUR LAWN. CUT A PUBLIC AREA AND USE THE "BAG DIRECTOR" WITHOUT THE BAG BECAUSE GRASS 2 FEET HIGH TO MULCH CUT WITHOUT STALLING.I CALL THIS MOWER MY CADILAC LAWNMOWER. HAVE HAD FOR ONLY ONE MONTH.LOVE THE CLIP DIRECTOR AND FUEL VALVE-AND KEY START. COULD USE ON BOARD NOZZLE TO HOSE OUT UNDERCARRIAGE-NEVER HAD ONE ON OTHER MOWERS-DIDNT LIKE TO TIP MOWER OVER TO HOSE OUT.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nitro Amazing results
I looked at a lot of mowers and the reliability of the Honda engine, no external battery for electric start and the two blades were the deciding factors. I paid 100 more than I wanted but the quality was worth it, 10 years from now that money won't matter if the cost of ownership is low. It did an amazing job right out of the box !

Have had this mower for 3 seasons now. Starts on the first pull every time, no exceptions. The cut is great and the rear wheel drive is effortless. You just can't find a better mower than this.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DaveM So far, I love it.
Ok, please keep in mind that I have only owned this mower for two months. I love everything about it! It was a little different getting used to the self propelled padles on the handle but once I found a comfortable position, I have no issues with it. I love the fact that you can switch from bag to mulch very easy and best of all is the key start, which, hasn't failed me once in the 6 times that I have used it this far. I have had a lot of mowers over the years and I have to say that this is one of the best I have ever used.
