Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pat Great Lawnmower
Great lawnmower. Cuts extreamly well. Plenty of power even in high thick damp grass. Keeps cutting when other mowers would have stalled out. The only draw back is the blade control lever that must kept engaged. It has a strong spring and after cutting awhile your left hand gets tired. Not a big issue, just something that you have to get use to. The mower is also heavy, but has plenty of power to keep pulling it along when cutting. Well made. Hope it lasts 30 plus years like my last Honda mower!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Raz Outstanding Lawn Mower
What an outstanding mower!!! I looked at tons of expert and customer reviews. This mower is the best. Agree with some of the comments (wheels were not the same level out of box so check that, lawn mower is a bit heavy so if that is a concern take it into consideration, takes a while to get used to the levers and operation) but overall, the lawn looks like a carpet. I used to have to empty the bag on my Toro 20+ times to complete the yard.....just 4 times with this mower. Lots of power, easy to operate once you get the feel for it. My first Honda but I can see why customers rave about it......more expensive but really worth it! Love that lawn mower.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BobC Love this mower.
Had an earlier version of this mower for years, and when it was time to replace it, this was an easy decision. One-pull starting and easy to use. Perfect for a 1/2 acre lot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TigerFan4Life I love this Mower!
This mower is a bit pricey but the quality is head and shoulders above it's competition.
The larger engine plows through anything without bogging down and I use the mulch setting 90% of the time. you can hardly see the clippings now whereas my old mower would struggle and leave big clumps of grass everywhere.
The operation of this mower reminds me of an old bulletproof mower I used when I was a kid.
The Self Propel mechanism with speed control lever works great! My old mower had a belt drive and personal pace push bar that NEVER worked.
I like being able to walk away from the mower and come back to it without having to start it again. It's great to be able to disengage the blade and not stop the engine.
I see this mower lasting a very long time and a great investment.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Upsetstomach Carberatuer not covered under warranty
Absolutely disgusted that I have already had to take this mower to the shop. Only the fifth time to mow and I start it up and the carberatuer starts surging on me. And to top it off I called Home Depot of Lawton OK and I can't even get the words out of my mouth and they say don't bring it to them because they can't touch. So I called the repair shops they recommend and guess what the carberatuer is not covered under the warranty. So it looks like I will be paying around another hundred bucks to get this brand new mower running like a brand new mower.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by wufpak69 Great mower with few cons
Bought this mower in 2014 to replace my 18 year old Snapper and wanted the larger engine this one offered. I really like the drive system on this mower and the blade stop feature which allows you to stop and move rocks, sticks, etc. without killing the engine.
I do not recommend leaving the bagger attached with the mower in mulching mode, as there is enough blow-by that the bag will still fill up over time, which means that you will end up emptying bags anyways. We simply leave the bagger in the shed now.
This mower is rock-solid and starts first pull every time. Major con is that there is no drain plug for changing the oil. I tried a siphon kit with no luck so like the manual says, you have to turn the mower over to drain the oil - and this mower is heavy! Given the Honda name, quality and high price tag of this machine this seems like a major oversight but all in all, I am quite happy with this machine.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JT173 Very satisfied
I've been using this mower for about 2 months now. It starts easily and has given us no problems - as I would expect for any new lawn mower, especially a Honda. Things that I really like: 1) excellent mulching, 2) on the fly change between bagging and mulching, 3) mower is definitely more powerful than my last one. Thing that could be improved: 1) the auto-choke isn't my favorite but generally does work; the speed control mechanism could be reworked so that I could change the walking speed without taking my hand off of the handle. The improvements are minor nitpicks and overall I am very happy with this purchase.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by lucky1330 Bad Carburetors & Poor Customer Service
Bad Carburetors & Poor Customer Service.
I will not buy another Honda product. I purchased my Honda HRX2175HYA in March of 2015 used it for one season with no problem. This year I used it until July when I went on vacation for two weeks and it sat in the shed. When I came home, I started it and the throttle was surging up and down. So I call my Honda dealer (not worried because it has a Five year warranty) and explained the problem. He immediately told me it will need a new carburetor and that Honda will not cover it under warranty because it is fuel related. I told him I would call Honda’s customer service line (I was sure they would help me). Not so, the Honda customer service representative was polite but un-helpful. He told me the same thing that they would not cover carburetors. Apparently these carburetors have such small passageways that leaving fuel set for even two weeks will clog them up. I even use an Ethanol treatment in the fuel. This is absurd I have a 23 year old Toro that will start on the first pull and I can leave gas in it for a year with no problem.
This problem is not just a problem on mine but all Honda lawnmowers. Google it and you will find the complaints, I wish I would have before I purchased it. Hondas warranty is useless they do not stand behind their products. I gave the customer service representative every chance to make this right and they refused to. I am left paying for a new carburetor and labor to install it around $75.00. All I can do now is to make others aware of Honda’s bad products and useless warranties.
