Yes, the Honda comes with a grass bag, but the double blades mulch the grass so fine that you don't need to use it.

Yes, the grass bag and frame come with the mower in the box. To assemble, just slide and snap the clips on the fabric bag edges onto the frame (no tools needed). Here's an image from the owner's manual....-Robert@Honda

You open the box and take off the wrapping. The handle is made to fold for storage. It comes folded. All you have to do is straighten it up and tighten the butterfly screws. You add the oil and that's it. There is nothing more to do.

Answer: 
Very little. Unbox, remove some packing and place the handles in their upright position and tighten, by hand, two bolts that keep the handles in place. The only other thing is to adjust cutting height, as desired, add the enclosed oil, add your own gas and start. Reading the manual is suggested and I happened to do so - it's a worthwhile read.

Answer: 
I just bought this mower and we literally "assembled" in two minutes. We tore threw the packaging and then you just rotate the handle about 90 degrees until it snaps in place. Then you put in the quart of oil that comes with the mower and gas---you have to supply the gas. It started immediately. I did not apply the bag to collect trimmings, I munch so I don't know what's involved with that.

The electric start is battery operated. You start the ignition with a key (much like starting an automobile)
Of course you can also start the engine by pulling a cord.

Answer: 
The mower has a small battery with a key (I don't know why they gave it a key.). Like starting a car, you turn the key to start the mower rather than pulling a cord. Be sure you have turned on the fuel valve so the engine can get the gasoline. (Not all mowers have fuel valves so you need to remember to turn it on.) The fuel valve is located at the lower right (mower facing you) on the engine.

Out of the box, you need to pull the cord the first time. Each time after that, the battery recharges as the mower runs, so you never need to pull the cord again, although I guess you could if you wanted to. Read Less

It's the most impressive one I've ever owned. No need for a battery charger, it charges while you're mowing. Out of the box it started instantly with the key, and hasn't failed to start yet. The battery is located in the box on the handle where the key is.

All you do is turn a key to start the mower then while the mower is running it charges the battery for the electric start so you don't have to worry about removing the battery and charging it like with other mowers that have electric starts.

All walk-behind lawn mowers use a grip and rope to pull-start the engine. Nicer mower with an electric-start option work like a car. Just turn the key, and a small battery and electric motor starts the engine. If the battery ever dies, you can always use the pull-start as a backup.

Answer: 
I believe Honda website claims 88 or 89 lbs. It's more weight than a push mower but the self propel does do a lot of the work for you excluding tight trim areas. Pushing manually is not too bad but if you ever have to pull it out of corner or from behind something you will strain a lot. For me, this was the deal breaker along with the in-consistant variable speed and hassle to clean deck.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 228 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! August 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The best Just got thes mower 2 weeks ago it is power full runs good starts easy I love it August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Honda Mower 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! July 17, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good could be better 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. July 14, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love this Mower 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. July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Title 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.. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quality Product 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. April 26, 2016
