When the Clip Director is closed, how much clippings should pass through? I recently purchased this mower and, with the Clip Director closed, I end up with a quarter bag of clippings after mowing my yard (which is not overly large). The instruction manual suggests that a small amount of clippings may come through with it closed, but what I am experiencing seems unusual and excessive. Do I have a defective unit?

Mine had none, after 1st mowing.

21 in. Nexite Deck 4-in-1 Select Drive Gas Walk Behind Self Propelled Lawn Mower with Blade Stop System is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 112.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not "Honda-like" I wanted to get a HRX217 "HYA" but got stuck with a "VYA". The roto stop (blade clutch) did not need to be redesigned...(at least not like this)... this version is cheap and flimsy. The trick is to push the bar to the right of the handle to stay engaged but for $700 I don't want to "make it work" it should "just work". The self propelled speed-dial is garbage as well... the old design with a simple lever was perfect ...this new design is touchy and inconsistent...combine that with the awkwardly shaped handle bars and you have a real loser. The cable for the self propelled speed gets stressed/kinked running through and out the handlebar ...making the speed control totally unpredictable... I can see a recall in this mower's future... I'm going to return it and have a HYA shipped to the store. Other than that it's spectacular :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Roto Stop mainly just stops. Bought this lawn mower last week. Unpacked it, all looked good. Got it oil/fuled up and ready to use. That afternoon headed out to mow my smallish lawn (about 1/4 acre) and immediately found that the Roto Stop feature was actually true to its name....it stopped. A LOT. On nearly every turn, every bump, and sometimes immediately after re-engaging it by the mowers own idle. I made 100% sure my hands didn't move the level that should disengage it. For a lawn that should take about 30 minutes to cut, took me 50 with the dozens (heck may have been as many as 50) times I had to stop and re-engage the Roto Stop feature. Absolutely terrible. I returned the product for the same model, MINUS the Roto Stop feature....for a $700 mower I expect better. EVERYTHING else about the mower is fantastic. Which is why I now have the one without Roto Stop and am very happy with that one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from returning Roto Stop Flaw…and I never write reviews Mower starts and runs fine. The Roto Blade control keeps poping out and disengaging the blade. Looking at the Roto control it looks very flimsy. Even sitting on my driveway I can only get the Roto Blade control to actually engage about half the time. I see a large spring that looks like it's not enagaging correctly. Mower has been run a total of 30 min on a flat lawn,Roto Stop disengaged a dozen times. The mower did cut well and the clippings were very fine. The Roto Stop is the problem. Not sure if I will try another Honda from Home Depot or not. It's a pain loading the mower back into the box and returning,not sure if this just one bad mower or a running problem. I have a 20 year old commercial HDX Honda that is built like a tank and still running. The drive system is worn but I might just repair and keep the mower.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The Lifetime warranty... Not in my life or yours.. The plastic deck is just what you expect it to... The Lifetime warranty... Not in my life or yours.. The plastic deck is just what you expect it to be. I knew this when I purchased it. I was replacing my 12 year old Honda .. which I loved ! I wanted to the same.. only now it, was only available in plastic. I had reservations, but was assured NO PROBLEMS.. Here look a truck can run over it, and its got a lifetime warranty. So why should i worry..... Well a truck did not run over mine. Only sand, rocks, twigs and leafs wore holes all along the side of the deck. It also wore out the mulching and bagging slide. Not to mention the rock guard broke off. The mower is 4 seasons old. Same lawn since 93'. Honda warranty claims its not a defect, so the mower is finished and heading to the garbage. So I ask Honda... if i drive over my deck with my truck....... Is the deck covered ??? They said No, its not a defect, so no warranty. THEN WHY ARE THEY SHOWING THIS AS A MARKETING CAMPAIGN FOR A INDESTRUCTIBLE MOWER DECK ? When they actually will not warranty such a incident? DON'T BUY THIS MOWER FOR THE WARRANTY. If you want one I can sell you one real cheap.. Starts fine, cuts fine, ... But you must wear full body armor to use it !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Problems at First Had an issue with the blade stop the first two times I mowed, the blade would stop about 3 times with my yard, per mow. I took it to an authorized dealer, only mowed once since, but the blade did not stop and the mower worked great. I believe Honda is aware of this issue, the blade stop lever was adjusted forward then when you pull back it will create more tension (that was my understanding). Remember to always pull back (and let go) swiftly on the lever to not wear the clutch when you want to stop or start the blade. Hopefully this is the end of this issue, I want to keep the mower. Also, I keep it on a very low setting with the self-propelled feature (about 1/3 of the way), you would have to run if you turned it way up.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So disappointed I was so excited to bring the mover home. Consumers Reports gave this mower high marks in all categories. I bought this mowing on Friday and had to return it on Saturday. I could not even finish the front lawn. Perhaps I got a poorly adjusted machine. Problems: 1. The “Brake Stop System” kept disengaging the blade. Sometimes the blade would disengage immediately. Sometimes it would take several attempts to get the blade to engage. It seemed like every time I would let off on the self-propelled handle the blade would disengage, even though I kept to tight grip on the “Blade Brake” handle. I tested the blade break by walking on the sidewalk and as I would walk the blade would disengage frequently again even with a firm tight grip of the “Blade Brake” handle. 2. I had the control almost to the lowest self-propelled setting were the drive would still engaged. The machine was way too fast to have good control even at this lowest setting (I jog 5 miles twice a week). I could not even imagine what the max setting would have been like. I should have tried the max setting before I returned the mower to the store. I cannot tell you how disappointed I was to have to return this mower since I had been so long excited about getting it once winter was over.
