I am looking for a great mulching mower for grass at 3 in high that does not leave clumps. Will this work for me?

My current Toro mulches great when the grass is not too high. I hate bagging the clippings because I then have to put the clippings in plastic bags and dispose.
Asked by: sjr
This mower is a stud. Unless the grass is really, really wet and tall, I have NEVER had a problem with the clippings clumping up. The dual blades chop the grass so fine there is no way for them to clump. The grass is chopped so small that it almost creates a problem (if you catch the clippings) because the bag gets too heavy when it is full. The variable adjustment on the back of the mower that allows for degrees of mulching and bagging is perfect for those times when you just have to mow really wet, tall grass.

21 in. Variable Speed 4-in-1 Gas Self Propelled Mower with Select Drive Control is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 392.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've waited to write this review so I could give an honest review after using this mower for 1 ye... I've waited to write this review so I could give an honest review after using this mower for 1 year. I did about a month of research before choosing this mower, believe me I looked at every other mower out there. This is by far the best mower that I have ever owned! The build quality is solid, the speed of the self propelled control is great for all types of users because of the adjustable dial. It can be adjusted from a very slow crawl to a very fast walking pace. I tend to like to get my mowing done as quick as possible, so I usually have it on full speed and I have to walk quickly to keep up. But with the control lever turned to fastest speed, you can still go from the fastest speed to a crawl by pressing the lever less or more. So I can be going full speed and then slow to a crawl as I need to maneuver around trees, stone edging, mailboxes, etc. The composite deck is really nice too, because I never have to worry about RUST. I live in Florida where we have the salt air and high humidity and steel deck mowers start to rust quickly... even if kept in a garage, which mine is. The 190cc Engine has impressive power on my very thick and healthy St Augustine grass, never bogging down at all. It easily starts on the first pull every time. I do recommend using a fuel treatment additive or ethanol free gas on any lawn equipment. (Ethanol is death to lawn mowers) any mower will start having carburetor after a year or two if you use gas with Ethanol. My local gas station has a Ethanol Free pump and I only use this fuel in all my gas powered yard equip. The mulching and bagging option is nice if you want to choose how much grass to bag vs mulch. I don't bag at all, so I use the mulch only option which works great, chopping up the grass into such small pieces that you can't even see them. I'm sure the Honda Twin Blade feature is why it mulches so well. Overall this mower is awesome! You will not be disappointed if you make this purchase. I know it's on the expensive side or the self propelled mowers but it's worth it. I'm sure the $399 less expensive Honda mower is great too, but I wanted the composite deck and 190cc engine. I have neighbor friends that own the others Husqvarna, Troy Built, Toro, Craftsman and I used them all before I made my decision on buying this mower. This one wins hands down!! I hope this review helps you with your decision, it is a honest review after a years worth of mowing.

I finally got tired of using my $30 craigslist special. This mower is an utter monster for grass. I can mulch 6"+ high grass at full speed and not leave the slightest clump. I may never discharge again. For people having issues with it leaving high blades... well sorry for you, but I do not seem to have that issue. Granted I have an idea that its maybe due to the rear wheel drive and the mower having enough power to pop wheelies. Learn some control and you should be ok. Starts on the first pull every time. Seems slightly more gas efficient than my previous mower. Its also rather quiet for such a powerful engine. If you are looking for a significant upgrade to your current push choice... this is the mower you need to get. I cant even get the thing to bog down no matter what I do to it. My old mower would choke on grass that was moderately high even discharging. Buy this thing and never look back.

Yes is was easy to assemble & it did start on the first pull out of the box, & it does cut even. That lasted about 6 mows. The air filter cover comes off anytime I hit a bump, or sometimes for no reason at all. I now only have 3/4 of it, as it fell off & i ran it over. I now have a zip tie holding it on. Setting the rear wheel cut level takes some muscling. Horrible design, I'm 6' at 225lbs & I have a hard time every time I have to adjust. The one pull start advertised is a urban legend with this unit. Even after it's warmed up it takes 5 to 10 pulls & then once it is started it takes another min to idle at a consistent speed to be able to mow. And last, but not least it's a major event to get a replacement bag & frame. Home Depot didn't want to help me, told me to contact a Honda dealer, (I thought this to be them being they deal with Hondas) & I bought it from them. The earliest they or any other "dealer" could get me a bag & frame was over 7 days. I'm a landscaper, I don't have 7 days. I even asked if I could buy the bag & frame off of the floor model & I was was told no. Now today 2 weeks later I'm still trying to find a frame & bag to replace the one I lost. I hate this mower, I wish I had never bought it. 39 days & it already needs a new belt, airbox cover, & who knows what with the engine & the poor performance. I shopped Home Depot because I like to use PayPal, had I known they wouldn't back up a product sold in their store, I'd never had bought from them. My receipt says 90 days for a return, yet I asked just after around 20 days & I was told to call Honda. Yes I'm heated. I work hard for my money, handing $600 over for a piece of equipment that doesn't get the job done, or have easy access to replacement parts is a tough one to swallow. zero stars if I could for both Honda & Home Depot. thanks for sticking me with this thing. (the bag frame is a Unicorn I'm convinced)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Definitely not good for Bermuda grass! My reel mower decided to conk out on me and they tend to be very expensive so I tried this mower because of the great reviews. Unboxing was extremely easy and the mower did start right up, however that's where the fun ended. This mower constantly balm down with my grass even at the highest setting. My other complaints are that the drive control makes your thumbs tired after a while, the wheels tend to spin because of lack of traction, and I didn't like that the mower had a safety feature that shuts it off if you're not constantly engaging the lever. Essentially, if there is a big stick in the way of your path it's more convenient to just run over the stick rather than move it because the mower will stop and you will have to start it again. I wanted to love this machine, but it's definitely not for me. I give it three stars because packaging and setup was extremely easy, I also know that rotary mowers tend not todo so well on Bermuda grass... I assume that it performs much better with st. Augustine Type grass.

While I was shopping, I was standing next to a landscaper who told me that this was the "Cadillac" of the lot. I bought it and there is nothing about this that disappoints. Apparently the two blade feature makes more of a difference than I realized. This picks up a lot more than the top of the line Toro I was replacing, holds more in the bag (I've only had to empty the bag twice per mowing vs. three times per mowing with my Toro), and doesn't clog like my old one. That last feature is the one that the landscaper sold me on, and he was right. I've only had it for a few weeks now, but have already had to use it in wet grass. I'm sold.

I recently purchased this lawn mower after spending about 2 month doing research. I must say I am very pleased with this mower. Here is what I wanted in a lawn mower; 1. The biggest engine I could get. 2. Self propelled. 3 The ability to switch quickly between mulching and bagging. I like the rear wheel drive on this mower. All the wheels have ball bearings, this makes mowing in tight places without the rear drive engaged very easy. I tried mowing and bagging the grass when it was wet and it did an excellent job of bagging with no clumps Left. I like the fact that this mower meets CARB and EPA tier 3 emissions., that means Less pollution.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Honda Quality? After retiring 12 year old Troy Bilt, I purchased this mower with high expectations of quality. Those expectations were quickly dashed. Upon starting my first mow, the Smart Drive system barely worked. After one pass it stopped working all together. No amount of adjusting the barrel adjuster would make it work. Perhaps a call to Honda would help? I tried but there was no option for technical help. I ended up pushing the brand new mower to finish the job. The quality of the mow was also less than expected with lots of clumps scattered around. Rather than hassle with getting a bad product to work, I returned it and purchased a Toro.
