The battery is inside a plastic box on the right side handlebar (copy and past this link to see an image of it: http://tinyurl.com/lf545lo The box is not waterproof, so don't let the mower sit outside uncovered. -Robert@Honda

GCV190 21 in. Nexite Deck 4-in-1 Select Drive Walk Behind Gas Self Propelled Mower with Electric Start is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 59.

Not sure why other people have had issue with this or others like it. the only con is that its heavy but that also adds to its stability. the drive system is great. takes a moment to get used too but one finger touch to go. key start right out of the box. no messing with choke or prime. turn key, it starts. bagging system matched with the deck and twin blades made my bagging go from 6 stops to empty to one (so far). a touch difficult to set height on all four wheels. engine didn't change its sweet tone at any time as I was mowing tall grass. took side hills well. just hoping on longevity because this mower is awesome.

Grew up in a house w/ 5 acres of land so we had to have a Riding mower. First started w/ a craftsman riding mower (piece of junk that always somehow died). Dad quickly switched to a Scag Tiger. When it ran it ran amazingly, and when it died it was always something electrical. Now that I'm a big kid now with a mortgage and countless bills to pay, I needed something less stressful and something that would work and not stress me out. I now own 1/3 acre total, so no need for a riding mower. Took it out of the box put in oil, and fuel. I saw videos on youtube where they would do the same thing and do a 1 pull or 1 turn key to start it. Personally I was skeptical because none of the mowers I was "voluntarily asked" to use as a kid ever did this. Well this one does. I really like that this is a self-propelled mower, I just turn on the speed dial to whatever is best and just roll with it. It practically was made for us 'Mericans. Because nothing says Good ole' America like the freedom to not push your own mower but for the mower to push itself. Used it several times already, and starts each time w/ one turn of the key. It still has the same gas that I topped it off. That gas was ugh, sitting in a gas container for several years (and didn't look the clearest), probably not the smartest idea, but no sign of fouling up or weird knocks on the motor. My biggest CON to this lawn mower is that to change the cut height, you have to change the height of each wheel. I would expect that from an American designed product but not from the Japanese. I wish it had 1 lever to change the grass height, would make my lazy American butt that much happier. In conclusion, this mower is best paired with some Toby Keith or Metallica on noise-cancelling headphones. If that is not your speed, try Nickelback.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fouling and not basketball I bought the previous iteration of this unit last fall. I am now putting in my fourth spark plug this summer. The spark plugs keep fouling (Honda plugs from Home Depot). I have been putting fuel stabilizer in after the first two failures and has not helped. Went to two Honda repair dealers and they wanted months to keep and work on the mower. So meant no cutting the lawn this summer. (Not a bad idea, since it is not my favorite thing.) When it works, it is a great mower, just have to either replace plug or prime the plug by dipping into gasoline and putting it back in before gas evaporates (only works twice).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Self propelled FAIL The engage handle for the self propelled feature stripped on day 2. I took it apart to find a cheap piece of plastic that holds the pin on the handle end of the cable. The plastic was poorly cast allowing the pin to pop out of the track that is supposed to guide it. Now get to wait on warranty repair at the shop that is open Monday thru Friday 8 to 5 (which means I can't get it there until Saturday, and they are backed up for over a week). What a huge disappointment after spending nearly $700.00 on a lawn mower!

It wasn't dead but was dying. I decided it was time for a new Toro but decided to do some research first. Glad I did. All signs pointed to Honda and when I really broke the price down I couldn't find a reason not to order. Wow best decision ever. Right out of the box it took me a little more than 2 minutes to set up and crank. Started immediately. I decided to torture test it right out of the box. I have lemon grass all over the yard and hate cutting and bagging it. I decided to see if this mower could handle it. Boy did I have no clue. In a little over 2 minutes this thing chewed through what would have taken me at least 10-15 minutes to bag. And used half the space in a trash bag. It then made quick and easy work of the yard in record time. The self propelled mechanism on the Honda is far and beyond the personal pace system on a Toro. Cutting my lawn was effortless. Could not even imagine a way to be happier with this purchase.

Took it out of the box, added oil and gas, adjusted the handle and wheels, turned the key, and off I went!! Mowing was actually fun once again. I didn't need a bag as it mulched so fine. Great powerful mower!

It starts so easy,usually the first pull if you want to use the recoil starter instead of the electric starter. It bags very well and the features are handy. A breeze to clean up after the job is finished.

This is the very best mower I have ever used, Just point it and it will go anywhere up down. Even my wife likes it, thinks its a good work out keeping up with it. The speed control is unbelievable and easy to use.
