Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by dweekley Lawn mower handle frame of poor construction
Due to very poor materials and construction the handle frame bends under its own weight so that you can not unfold the handle bars from its storage position. I went through three of these mowers within less than a month time frame. The first two became so damaged so easily the lawn mower practically had no use at all. The third one did better but I had to send it back too because the handle frame became twisted clockwise with the right side being an inch lower then the left under hardly no use too. The features are nice but I can say without a shadow of a doubt that the construction of it in its present form probably couldn't survive moving it from one location to another intact. Buyer beware.

Had previously owned the HXA model for 11 years and was extremely satisfied with it. Purchased this model the HZA which is basically identical but has the electric start. Would recommend the Honda mowers as they are very reliable and simple to use and upkeep!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sparky Easiest hand mower I have ever had!
Opened the box, connected the handle, added the oil and started it. I really like the feature of NOT having the blades turning when I am moving from one lawn to the next. I had another brand mower that I needed to empty the basket three times per lawn. Now, I only need to empty the basket once per lawn and the basket comes off and goes back on very easily. The variable speed drive wheels should be standard on all mowers. This really is the easiest hand mower I have ever had! Well worth every penny!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jim2016 Love this mower !!!
Mower arrived in three days. Unpacked the box and was mowing the yard within 15 minutes. I unfolded the handle, added the included oil and my gas and adjusted the cut height . The battery was already charged, so all I had to do was turn the key. Plenty of power to cut tall, thick fescue. Cuts damp grass well. Completely fills the bag with clippings, so it does get a little heavy when full. The "cruise" control handles my hilly yard with less effort on my part than my old Personal Pace Toro Recycler. I just had to get used to slowing down the speed control when making 180° turns. The blade brake feature is nice for emptying the bag without turning off the mower. Key activated battery start is great... haven't had to pull the cord yet. Invested a lot of research and money in this model, but it was well worth it.

I am on my third shipment of this lawn mower. When the mower is shipped the handle bends during shipping. Either the handle is very week or the packaging is not very good from Honda. If the third mower handle is bent I will buy another brand . Like I said I have already returned the first two. As you can see this is common because there are others on the review site who have had the same issue. Honda needs to fix this issue

There a couple of things that I think should be addressed
1. There should be some sort of protection installed on each side of the mower deck to help protect it from damage and scratches.
1. The two brackets the support the handle in the folded position should have some protection ie. a rubber sleeve. this will not only protect the handle during shipping but in while in storage.
This does not effect the use of the mower in any way, it still does a good job, I usually keep a mower for over 20 years and I hope this will last that long and if it does I will be 95 years old so I want this to be my last mower.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SavMax Excellent mower
Researched 2016 self propelled mowers when my 15 year old mower was passed to my son. Research showed Honda mowers to be of the highest recommendation from a number of independent review sources. Electric start was a "must" function that limited my search but was hampered in that local providers did not have all models to do a hands on assessment. Finally chose this model because I could not quantify the benefit of all features and wanted a relatively fast speed with adjustments. Have been very pleased after four mowings - assembly and operation were easy. Electric start is very nice and works well, separate motor speed and drive speed are nice and separate blade/drive controls are excellent. Adjustable speed is very nice but probably would have been ok with the 4 speed model for $150 less. Cutting and bagging performance is excellent and much better than my 15 year old model. A few tips on using the two clutch controls and operation might benefit new Honda owners.

Yep, it starts without those 10 tries at one pull starting. It has an excellent variable drive. Cuts great. variable bagging is great.
Heavy, but the energy saved by not pushing it is more than enough to manueverit.
