Is there any throttle control on this mower or is it always determined by the mower

My old mower has a throttle control for engine speed so it can be idled down when not actively cutting; does the throttle get controlled by this in some way? I assumed the thumb paddles are only for the transmission, and thought maybe it was linked so it throttled up when the drive was engaged, but the responses from a question about using it without the Smart Drive negated that. Is the engine always running at full cutting speed whenever it's started?
Asked by: Nick
The engine is a "throttle free" design. It always runs at one operating speed only.

Does this lawn mower's gas tank hold one full gallon or one full quart?

Someone asked this question earlier and most respondents said that it holds one gallon. My sense is that it holds far less than a full gallon of gas.
Asked by: Randy
1 Quart

Do you have to use self propelled feature or can use it as a standard push mower without the self propelled feature?

I have a pretty flat yard and enjoy the exercise without using the self propelled feature, but my wife will probably use the self propelled feature. Will the wheels "lock up" if the self propelled is not engaged?
Asked by: Tennessee
Sure. And as an added bonus all those features you will not be using make the mower heavy for even more exercise.

21 in. 3-in-1 Variable Speed Gas Self Propelled Mower with Auto Choke is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 2804.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from This mower is not without its share of irritating little ergonomic problems. My 17 year-old Craft... This mower is not without its share of irritating little ergonomic problems. My 17 year-old Craftsman single-speed, front drive mower finally bit the dust last week. So after a little research and reading professional reviews, I bought this Honda lawnmower - based not only on value and its reputation for reliability, but also gathering from reviews that it was more thoughtfully designed than most "lesser" brands. It was certainly easy to set up and started on the first pull. But all new mowers really should, shouldn't they? I don't consider that a good benchmark to base your purchase on. Now, granted, I've only used it once and this after getting used to the other one for 17 years. But I already see some irritating little ergonomic/ease of use issues with this mower: 1) The variable speed drive is needlessly difficult to control. It goes from a crawl to full-out sprint with the slightest movement of the control lever. I tried several different positions and still found it difficult to keep this thing from going too fast. When that happens, it "pops a wheelie" and I have to retreat and mow that part again. What the control mechanism needs is a physical stop on it that you can tailor to your maximum desired speed. There is none. As it is, the only adjustment for the control mechanism merely allows you to pivot the assembly on the handle so that your natural hand position and thumb extension somewhat limits how fast the mower will go. But then if you re-position your hands or rotate your wrists even slightly, you have the same problem. 2) Rear wheel drive is more difficult to control than front drive when you turn around at the end of a row. With my old front drive mower, you just pushed the handle down to lift the rotating front wheels and quickly and easily pivoted the mower on the free-moving rear wheels. With this mower's rear drive, you have to release the drive control then lift the front wheels, then pivot on the rear wheels which are more difficult to move because they're attached to a drive mechanism. Perhaps I'll get accustomed to it after using it a few more uses, but front wheel drive is much easier to control when turning around or operating the mower close to the edge of the lawn. 3) This one really confounds me. The supplied bag has an opening that is just *ever so slightly too large* to fit into the opening of a standard paper lawn refuse bag. WHY? How could the people who designed this thing not see what a hassle that is? With most mowers, you place the opening of the mower bag *into* the paper lawn bag and easily pour out the clippings without spilling anything. The rigid opening of the mower bag holds the paper bag open while you pour. Not so with this Honda mower. You have to somehow position the paper bag and hold it open as you pour the clipping from the mower bag. Again, it's a needless inconvenience that could have easily been corrected. 4) Maybe as a function of the drive control or handle position (which I'll have to fine tune as I go along) or maybe from the vibration from the engine, I experienced a numb, tingling sensation in my left hand when I was done mowing. The funny thing is, even in comparison reviews, these irritating little flaws were never even hinted at. The one drawback I saw reported was that the height adjusters on the wheels are too small. Seriously? I had no problem with those, and how often do you adjust the height? Two or three times a season at the most? All of this might seem like nitpicking, but I thought someone might find the information useful. After all, if you buy this mower you're going to have to deal with these seemingly trivial irritations 30 or so hours a year for 15 years.

After a few minutes when unloading full bag, the motor refused to restart. Would let it "rest" to "unflood", (if that was the issue) and try again, and again. Eventually it would restart, however after several times of dealing with this it was returned. It states "easy start" on motor, it should say "easy swear". Poor performance due to poor reliability. Avoid.

I have never left a review before but this is simply the best mower I have ever used. I have had it for about a year and not a single problem but I would expect that for any mower. What makes this mower extraordinary is it's auto choke easy start engine, intuitive easy to use drive system and it's light weight maneuverability. But the best feature is it's twin cutting blades. They do such a good job of mulching that I have only used the bag once. The mulch never clumps, never bogs down the mower and is virtually invisible no matter the grass length or how wet. This mower is so good that I plan on buying for my son for a house warming gift. I highly recommend this model, no need to go any higher in price!

There should be notches or something similar to more easily press the right speed. I added a hose clamp to prevent "jogging speed". Not perfected yet but it helps. I do keep smashing my left hand when I don't have it out of the way.

I was debating between a Briggs and Stratton and a Honda engine lawn mower for quite a while. I used to have a Craftsman with Briggs and Stratton , and it served me well for a number of years. I decided to have my yard taken care of by a gardener so I can have more time to enjoy my weekends with family so I gave it away to a relative. I recently have a landscape makeover and left just the front yard lawn to care for, so I wanted to care for it myself. My gardener was using Honda-powered commercial lawn mowers and said that they are more reliable than Briggs and Stratton ones. So I gave it a chance. And what an excellent choice. It is powerful, cuts beautifully, leaves a clean mulch when you choose that option. I haven't tried the rear discharge yet, but I'm most likely not to use it. It starts with one pull each and every single time, the gear is smooth and you can adjust the trigger to your own pace. Other reviews are exaggerated when they say it is hard to maneuver since it is a rear-wheel drive, and the propulsion is jerky. NOT TRUE. It is user error for the most part. This machine is silky smooth, works like a charm and surprisingly not as loud as others claim. I will follow up this review after a few years of ownership. So far, so good !

This is a great mower and I have put it through a lot and it cuts very nice. My only dislikes are it doesn't have a side discharge option and the tires go bald very quick. Other than that, its a Honda mower, it speaks for itself! I would get one again or maybe get the Honda mower with a side discharge.

I would have given it 5 starts but when I opened the box there was no bag. I called Home Depot and they said to come right it and they would take care of me. They did and I went home to one of the best mowing experiences I have had. Right out of the box, after adding the oil and gas and it started on the first pull, and a very easy pull it was. The variable speed lets you determine how fast you go, not the mower pulling you along. The lever that switches between Mulch or bag works easily and the bag is very easy to put on and off. It is a great machine that doesn't take up much room in my already crowded garage.

I am a teen who own my own lawn service, so I have had to venture out and buy various types of lawn equipment. In doing so, I have discovered many things about all the big name brands and their quality. My dad owns the 2011 model of this mower, and has had wonderful luck with it, so I decided to venture out and buy another when my Toro lawn mower seized up out of the blue. I really like this mower: fuel efficiency, features, value, etc. However there are a few things worth noting about overall quality vs. my dad's 2011 model of this mower. Improvements: Cutting height- My dad's mower cannot cut at very tall heights; thankfully two extra cutting heights have made this mower more practical for me. Ease of transport- My dad's mower required you to unscrew two plastic pieces on both sides of the handle bars to fold them down. It is a very slow process, and can be quite a pain. This mower now has two pieces that pop out and twist to the side allowing you to fold the handle bars in one second flat. Mowing options- While this mower still cannot side discharge, changing from mulching to bagging is now a breeze. A single switch on the deck allows you to change from mulching to bagging without having to remove a mulching attachment. The bad: Since the price-point of this mower has changed relatively little over the past 6-7 years, Honda has had to cut quality to meet inflation. This is very apparent when you are starting the mower. The Auto Choke system has changed, and takes 2-3 pulls to start (versus one pull for the 2011 model). Honda has also made the bag thinner, which allows small pieces of grass to fly out of it, and turns it a dusty-brown when some become trapped within. The wheels have below average grip, so it will occasionally struggle going up steep hills. The plastic back flap also bends and warps over a short period of time, not visually appealing, but it does not hurt the performance of the mower. While there are some negatives to the overall performance and value of this mower, it's easy enough to overlook those, and I expect to get many years of service out of this mower.
