Customer Questions & Answers

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.

What is ratio mix of gas and oil to HRX 217 ?

I lost manual .
Asked by: chinh
Gas and oil are separate. Don't use mixed gas on this mower. The instructions indicate to use one small oil bottle to fill the reservoir.

21 in. Variable Speed 4-in-1 Gas Self Propelled Mower with Select Drive Control is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 222.

By the end of the May it became very difficult to start. From then it only got worse. By the time the end of September came around it was no longer tolerable. It would take 20-25 pulls to start. Contacted Honda Power Equipment Customer Relations several times expressing my displeasure. Was receiving responses from someone named "Wesley". This person possessed zero customer relation skills. Honda Power Equipment has the worst customer relations you could ever imagine. Finally took the mower to an "authorized" Honda service center. The mower was there for a month - a month. During that time, once the service received replacement parts to repair my mower and another mower with same problem. Both parts arrived broken and had to be ordered again. Finally I was able to pickup the repaired mower. The "Honda authorized" service center indicated to me that they do not honor the warranty since I didn't purchase the mower from them. It cost me $128 to get my mower back. Well, since the place I purchased my mower from is not a Honda authorized service center I suppose i do not have a warranty. Worst experience I have ever had buying any power equipment anytime, ever, in my life. I will never purchase anything in the future that has the name "Honda" on it. I had never purchased anything in the past with the name "Honda" on it until I purchased this mower and I will never purchase anything with the name "Honda" on it again.

This is the greatest self propelled mower of all time. It's better than any commercial small mower 21-33 inch. Huge bag, select between mulch and bag to get the ultimate mowing finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from i bought this mower to replace a really tired Lawn King mower. pulled it out of the box, assemble... i bought this mower to replace a really tired Lawn King mower. pulled it out of the box, assembled the grass bag to the metal frame, adjusted wheels to setting # 2, poured the supplied bottle of engine oil in the oil fill tube, put gas in the tank and pulled the starter rope lightly ONE TIME and this thing started up! we had a lot of rain last month so a bunch of weeds popped up but i was not able to mow them until now, and some weeds were 2.5' tall with 3/4" stumps! This mower totally devoured everything in its path leaving no trail of wet weed or grass clumps! the self propel will give you an aerobic work out when used at max speed, but adjusting the sensitivity knob made it very easy to control. this mower will COMPLETELY fill the grass catcher then start to pop wheelies. (maybe thats Hondas way to tell you its full) I could go on about how pleased i am with this mower, I am very satisfied and amazed at how effortless this machine worked to clear the yard! I thought $600.00 was a big price to pay for a mower, but the ease of use, Honda quality and this mowers brute performance proved to me that it was totally worth the money I paid for it! If I ever have to buy another mower, it will be another Honda!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Withholding judgement After bringing mower home, followed instructions as to prepping machine for first use including adding fresh gasoline and the oil included in the box. Mower died out repeatedly when trying to cut grass that was neither wet nor long. Attempted to just run mower while sitting on driveway for several minutes, but still sputtered and smoked so gave up. Several days later, decided to return mower but thought I'd give one last attempt to get it running. After a rough start, it ran okay. So, I'll wait see if it continues to operate well. I'm disappointed it didn't run well out of the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lawn looks like a carpet! I had a 20" push Lawn Boy for awhile to just knock down a patchy lawn. Years later I put in sod, became a yard nut, and began obsessing over having the best lawn on the block. That Lawn Boy just wasn't up to the task of cutting thick, moist turf, and eventually I got this machine. I wanted a machine that didn't leave lines, clumps, stragglers, and left an even cut in just one pass, and that's exactly what I got! This thing mulches the grass into tiny bits that just disappear into nutrients for the lawn. If you're serious about mowing your lawn, then this is the machine! It's literally the Cadillac of lawnmowers, the 190cc engine is awesome, and will leave your lawn with a professional appearance. Buy with confidence.

Very easy to assemble, took me a minute to figure out how to put the bag onto it's frame though, other than that a piece of cake. And Yes, just like everyone else says, the Honda engine starts with the very first pull....Every time. I've always used a front wheel drive in other brands of mowers, and always thought that was the way to go, but let me tell You, I was Wrong! This rear wheel drive model does ALL the work, You just have to walk behind and steer it. Leaves the Cleanest cut You ever did see, the mulching blades do their job perfectly. If You're wondering if the speed of the mower will be fast enough for You, like I was, have no worries, You will be Pleasantly surprised at just the HALF speed mode. This Mower is truly a Fine Tuned Industrial Machine, & worth EVERY dollar of it's cost. The first time I used it, I didn't want to stop mowing, and almost went to my neighbor's yard. For Real!

Just finished my second mowing season with this mower and I could not be more impressed. Context. Have a quarter-acre, mostly flat suburban lot in Minnesota with thick bluegrass, fescue, and rye. Had a Lawn-Boy with Honda engine for 15 years (which I liked) and a Craftsman before that (which I did not like), and when it came time for a new mower I did some research and picked this one. From the first swath on the lawn, the mower felt like it was perfectly suited for the task. The variable speed has a wide range (I've never had to use it beyond "half" speed on the dial), the bag is big and fills from the back, the variable mulch/bag setting is a great feature that I actually use, and the cut is perfect -- even when the grass is wet. I waited two years to comment on this mower to give it some time...and I am as impressed with it now as the first day I used it. It is easily the best mower I have owned or used. Recommend this mower with no reservation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mower Recently purchased this Honda mower so it's only been used a few times. Despite the price, this is a great quality machine compared to others in the same category. Set up was very easy and like many of the other reviewers, started on the first pull. The Select Drive and mulching are great. I have a large back yard and teetered on deciding on a small riding lawn mower, but this Honda makes quick and easy work of it. I attached a few pictures to show the size yard I'm talking about.
