Rated 5 out of 5 by Worth every penny Excellent mower! The smart drive control is convenient, easy to use and the self propel system is smooth and powerful. Handlebar easily adjusts and can be folded down for storage in seconds. Starts first pull every time and engine is powerful enough to make full passes through thick 6-7 inch grass. I bag all my clippings and it left not one behind and the bigger bag and smaller mulched clippings cut how many times I needed to stop and dump them in half. For how big this mower is I found it surprisingly easy to maneuver. The mower does all the work you just need to make sure it stays straight, don't know why I waited so long. July 11, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality Product. Very little assembly. Was ready to go out of the box. Just had to add oil (provided in box) and gas, and with one pull the mower was ready to go. Worked great even on wet grass. I bought this based on recommendations from friends on the quality of Honda mowers. I expect this mower to last 10+ years as theirs did. The only con I can say is the price. It's a little on the expensive side. I wouldn't say it's necessarily over priced, because it's a quality product. I just would like to see the price come down a little more since it does not have the blade-stop feature. May 28, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wow, It's High End Home Unit.... I spent several day online , looking at reviews and to make a long story short this mower was on top of its game. I am very Picky and I built High tech equipment, and turbines so I know about high end equipment and what it should look like this model I should have bought sooner ! I cut 2ft tall grass right out of the box ran like a beast. no lack of power, great on fuel low DB! starts ver well when hot also just FYI. If there is any problems its operator October 1, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I love this mower! I was on the fence between this model and the HYA. In my opinion spending an extra $100 on the blade clutch and a harder to use self propel system wasn't justified. I wanted a powerful engine that would mulch anything & I wanted the option of bagging only part of what I cut, so the mulch/bag system on this mower is ideal when compared to the HRR version. (Also, its warranty is 2 years longer than the HRR.) It's a cliche at this point, but this mower starts on the first pull every time. And I love the self propel paddles. People talk of having tired thumbs but I just use my palms and it works great. Much easier to use than the metal handle on the HYA. It is pricey and some clippings do gather outside the mulch door, but I'm not really sure if I could be happier with a mower. I've come from a corded electric (my fiance's) and this self propelled baby has cut my mowing time in half. I grew up on a 3/4 acre lot that my dad insisted on having me push mow, so I grew up hating anything to do with yard work. Now I can say something I never thought I'd say--I love mowing my yard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by An Excellent Choice! An excellent lawn mower. Had a Toro, and did not last, so went to the Honda. Very glad I made the switch. There is no comparison. The Honda is superior in every way. Easy to use with the variable touch speed control. If your lawn is flat, you may not use it all the time as the large wheels on the mower make it easy to push. Cutting and grass pick up by the bag is excellent. You will enjoy using this Honda model. I would have purchased the next model up with the electric start, but the store does not carry that model.
