Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by warpdrive The BEST lawnmower I've used.
I'm a believer in Honda. I picked this up because my old Sears Briggs and Stratton mower was nearly impossible to start, but this Honda starts up with literally 1/3 the effort and on the first pull every single time. It's so smooth as well and is quieter as well. The Smart Drive control gives you thumb control of the speed, you just push it harder and it goes faster. The control doesn't lock so you have to keep pushing otherwise it stops (which isn't an issue with me, but you should know). The twin blades gives a good cut as well, didn't notice many stray clumps of grass left behind.
What can I say, just buy it, it's well worth the extra money compared to what you may buy at Sears or your local discount store.
Oh yeah I'm from Canada and this is the exact same mower than Honda Canada sells for $650. So if you live near the border, time to drop into a Home Depot in the US the next time you are in the US

I love this mower. Everything about it screams quality, and ease of use. No choke to mess with, no bunny or turtle. Love the self propelled twist style throttle. Just turn it a little and off you go. Makes stops and turns a breeze. Large fuel fill to avoid spills. Easy to start too. My wife barely yanked the pull cord(after I insisted she try it) and it fired right up. Boy does it ever cut too. I've used several self propelled mowers over the years and this is hands down the best. I'm just tickled with this new mower. Can't wait to mow next week.

I almost didn't buy this because of a few bad reviews. Just buy it. They even took my competitor coupon to save money! Loaded it up for me, i took it home and took it out of the box. It was all together. Just extend the handle and add the included oil.......pull 1 time and started right up! It took all of about 30 steps to get used to the drive system which is fantastic. ( little tip, use the pads at the base of your thumbs to push it ) My grass was long and damp and this thing was great, never slipped and mulched very well. This mower is also very easy to push and pull with out the self propelled, which is great since most yards you will need to do this. All in the best mower I ever used.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by alspachsl Wonderful mower
I am so glad there are reviews everywhere these days for products like this. After having endured used/Craigslist mowers for a few years I decided to buy new and did my homework. This came up cheapest with what it does and with the best reviews. Easy to set up, just add oil and gas. Pull on it once, even weakly and it starts right up! Cuts grass like you would want it to...I love the variable speed. I'm a small woman with a big lawn and I love the fact that if I have to go up an incline, I can use the speed control and let the mower do the work. It's a great mower and I'm glad to have purchased it. I've mowed once and will post an update if there's any problems.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by marco excellent mower
i did all the reading between toro and honda and i shelled out the extra money for the honda and i was glad i did first off when you take it out of the box make sure you do not pour the whole bottle of oil in it but keep checking the oil level with the dipstick cause i did not use the entire bottle....after gassing it up it started on the first pull and and ran great. i thought that the smart drive was user friendly and got comfortable with it quickly i mulched with it the first time and the dual blade setup cut the grass so fine i barely noticed it....again i am definitely happy i bought the honda!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Great Performance,Best Mower I've Ever Had !
Put the oil in,filled the gas tank,the mower started on the first crank and every restart has been one crank.Love the rear wheel drive and varible speed.It pulls hard on the sloped area of our yard and can go faster than we need.Mulching in the bag is good for placing around plants and helps the soil.
My first Honda Mower and so Happy I picked this one.
