Mulch conditions
When the lawn more is on March condition the door which supposed to close for the grass not to come true it’s not tight therefore there is a lot of grass getting accumulated and falls off as we are running in the most condition I’m quite disappointed because I buy a lot of equipment from Honda and that design is very poor.You can see on the picture of the gap of the light where disappointed

Hello, We are sorry to hear you are having trouble with the rear discharge guard on your lawn mower. We have asked our Customer Relations team to reach out to help you resolve this.
    Twice the price, half the satisfaction!
    Purchased this April 2020 so I have one season to objectively review this mower. I thought for double the price I would get a much nicer cut, and for sure the ability to mulch higher grass without having remains all over the lawn. Two things left desired. I bagged in the fall, and it did a remarkable job cleaning up the leaves, so that is a plus. I tend to mulch in the summer, and the speed of this mower is just too much, and I am a fast walker. The wheel base is shorter than my old mower, and all fours wheels are pretty much the same height. Add the wheel size and the speed of the mower and you have a recipe for a bouncy cut job and an unpleasant workout for your arms. The short wheelbase is not conducive for this speed of this thing on mulch. Now when you start to bag, you quickly see that speed drop as the unit gets very heavy quickly. There are 7 positions for the mower height and it seems they are 1/4 inch too high or too low. I usually cut at 2.5 and I can see the wind blowing the grass after I cut. The next lower setting will be too low. Cutting the leaves up I can see the help of the two blades for but for mulching, no. My expectations were pretty high when I purchased this. Honda motor.....big deal.. Composite base....always kept in the garage so never had a problem in the past with rusting of any mower. Ability to adjust the mulch level....I can see this being a benefit, although it seems the mulch does collect in the discharge area because of the sliding cover. Bigger gas tank.....not useful for me. For the price I wish the unit would cut nicer. The before and after are not very different outside the wheel markings.

      Awesome mower!!
      I actually enjoy mowing my yard! I am female, 63 years young, and have never owned a mower with this much power and fantastic mulching abilities. I debated about the cost, but knowing Honda’s reliability and reputation, I bought it online. So very happy with my purchase! Just buy it!

            Game changer!
            The HRX217 has absolutely changed the game for us. We were considering a riding mower after our 6 year old Snapper started breaking down and becoming too time consuming to mow with. After buying a rider we soon realized it just wasn’t practical. Too many obstacles in the back yard and took just as long as the Snapper to complete the job. The HRX was the perfect solution. It has shaved 40 minutes off of our total mow time and is so much fun to operate! We also save an additional 20 minutes blowing. We used to have to blow the clippings into a pile and sweep them up with the old mower. The HRX mulches so finely that this is not required! Simply blow them back into the yard and move on. Our grass has literally became the greenest lawn in the neighborhood. The HRX217 was recommended to me by my brother in law. We now recommend this mower to everyone as well. Thank you Honda.

              Nice Upgrade from Toro Recycler
              I've had 2 Toro 22" recycler mowers. After 7 years the motor one lost power and would cut out going up hills. The second is still going strong. I got this Honda for its leaf mulching abilities, and it does not disappoint. The bag holds considerably more and mulches the leaves better, meaning more in each bag load, and also fewer of the paper bags taken to the curb. The one shortcoming is the drive ability feature. Although you can set the speed, even in Max speed it is very slow going up hills which the Toro does with ease. Overall a solid mower.

                This thing is a tank!
                I have been using this for the last seven months during the summer. I am a female, 63 years old, and about 130 pounds. I say this because even though this thing is like a tank, I can maneuver it pretty easily. I had to have help getting it out of the car since it’s quite heavy. It’s also a bit on the heavy side if you’re pulling it backwards. But, if you tilt it up on the rear wheels you can turn it around easily. Even I could do this with one hand. The self propelling action is wonderful. You can really fine-tune it, and when it comes to hills, this thing is like a tank. I really don’t have to push it at all. It starts easily, 90% of the time on one pull, and rarely do I have to do two or three times. That’s important because over the course of my life I have had mowers that take several pulls, and that’s if they start at all! I only use the mulching function, and that is terrific. The fact that it’s a bit on the heavy side when pulling it backward, just indicates how solid this thing really is. It’s extremely well-built, and feels like it will last a lifetime. The only thing I wish for is that it had a wider mowing deck. It’s expensive, but you do get what you pay for!

                  Love It!
                  This mower was purchased as a replacement for a 20 year old Honda. I unpacked it the day it arrived, filled it with gas and it started the first pull. Works great.

                    First one created oil leak after 1 month
                    This is the second mower. First one had oil leak after 5 mowing's. Returned it and ordered another. Always wanted a Honda mower, but not impressed with what I have experienced so far.
