Could find nothing in the manual or specs about leaf shredding. How is that different from mulching and how is it accomplished?
Asked by: Larry
I have not had this mower long enough for leaf time but with previous mowers, I mulch first and then bag. This is what I will do with this mower . I think they recommend setting the clip deflector somewhat short of shredding i.e. partial mulching.

After pushing a Craftsman for 20 years I bought this Honda HRX217VLA (it has electric start) and after I finished cutting my yard I was not tired! I never used a self propelled lawn mower before. Amazing! Honda's GVC 200 engine made quick work of high grass. The electric start is a nice feature. Electric start made getting started easy. On first start up you may need to pull start, but after that turn the key the Honda starts right up! If you have to walk away from the mower it will stop running come back turn the key it starts right up! I turned the mower on it's side when done and hosed off the bottom. I hand washed the rest of the mower with armour all car wash. When done I started the mower to dry the bottom. By the way the mower bagged clippings fantastic and picked up a few lose leaves. Fantastic mower! It will go as fast as you want or slow as you want.

Self-propelled works better than expected because it will drag you across the yard on full power. First cut of the season and bagging system worked extremely well. Best part of the product is easy to work without any issues.

The fact that the deck is not metal is great as I am in a coastal environment. The electric start is a nice add. The engine starts easily with the recoil starter as well. Engine is more powerful and seems quieter than my old Cub Cadet SC500. The only thing this mower lacks, is a quick disconnect for a water hose for easier cleaning under the deck. Highly recommend to anyone looking to purchase. Five stars.

I love the battery start feature. The select drive continues to make this a great easy to control self propelled mower. So far I love the light weight Nexite mower deck. Only negative was after receiving quick shipment to my home the manual, key, and oil was left out if the box. Otherwise an awesome powerful walk behind that I was able to bag a thick layer of matted down pine needles on our newly rented property. Worth the extra money to me for sure.

I BOUGHT IT BECAUSE ALL OF THE MOWERS I HAD IN 35 YEARS THERE WHEELS WERE VERY LOOSE AND CAME APART BECAUSE OF NO WHEEL BEARINGS. 4 AND A HALF YEARS AFTER I BOUGHT THIS ONE THE WHEEL BUSHING ON REAR WHEELS LOCKED UP. SHOP SAID WORE OUT AND NOT COVERED IN 5 YEAR WARRANTY. ASK HOW TO KEEP FROM BREAKING AGAIN. THEY SAID DO NOT USE MOWER? OTHER TAN THAN THAT THE TRANSMITION WENT OUT IN 6 YEARS. SAID 525 TO REBUILD IT? NEW MOWER 599? PROBABLY WILL BUY A NEW ONE SOON!

Compared to my last self propelled mower by a different brand The levers you pull to propell the mower seem to located so that it makes my hand tired. I have used it 3 times.

This product arrived on time and in great shape. Very little assembly to accomplished. The bag was the most time consuming of any assembly. In fact the remainder was really simple. After adding the oil and gas the engine started running immediately with the battery fully charged and ready. What a pleasure to use this mower. Rather expensive but well worth the price. Mows wonderful with and without the catcher bag which holds lots of clippings. The speed control works flawless. So much better than the mower it replaced. No comparison. With this rear drive no one needs a 4wd. Not only do I just recommend this mower, I highly recommend it to all that enjoys doing their own yards and seeing what a great cut this mower furnishes.
