Excellent Mower
Mower is fantastic. Powerful moves fast cuts perfect. Electric start is effortless. Excellent balance. Partial mulching feature is excellent. Put some clipping back to lawn and empty bag way less

    Terrible self-propel system
    I like Honda products and own some but this is my first Honda lawn mower. The mower would be great if only it had a decent self-propel mechanism. I'm 64 years old and have owned many other self-propelled mowers and also used many others I didn't own, starting with an old mower that used a simple gear & cog type system on the front wheels that rattled and vibrated like heck when I was about 10 years old, and even it was better than the system used on this brand new mower! It is near impossible to maintain an even speed while mowing! Instead of just selecting a gear (like most other rider and self-propelled mowers) then engaging the drive, with this mower one is constantly fiddling with either a spring mounted bar or a round knob trying to maintain an even speed! But it's near impossible!!! Instead one mows their whole yard with the dang mower either slowing to a halt or lurching forward and going too fast when you try to get it going again! And even if you finally get the speed right between the lever and knob, if the grade on your yard changes ever so slightly, the speed of the mower will change also!! The manual even states the mower will go different speeds depending on the surface! Huh??? That's ridiculous and the craziest thing I've ever heard of! I've been in the same house with same yard for 23 years and used two other self-propelled mowers during this time and those mowers maintained the one speed I set them at when I started mowing whether I was going up a hill, down a hill, across grass, or across my driveway! Not so with this drive system that some genius at Honda designed and other geniuses approved!! And rather than be embarrassed about it, as they should be, they try to tout it as being some great "adjustable drive system". Not to mention that this system also makes the mower extremely hard to pull backwards when mowing! In a direct comparison with my last self-propelled mower, this one is about twice as hard to push or pull!! I should have been suspicious when I first purchased the mower and after the two young guys loaded it into the back of my truck, I said, "I've got some rope to tie it down." To which one of the guys replied, "Heck, it ain't going nowhere, these mowers don't roll!"

        Cuts better than Toro
        Have less than 3 hours on new Honda Mower but so far I have been impressed. I have owned Toro Mowers for over 40 years with excellent results so when I needed a new mower I researched Toro and Honda. I really struggled with choosing Honda over Toro. I like the self-propelled much better than Toro's personal pace. I believe the cut quality is better also. I like being able to select partial mulching and bagging simultaneously. The 201cc engine never bogs down, even in wet zoysia grass. It starts on first pull. I got the electric start because it was the only model available. I'll probably never use it given how easily it starts. While you can't go wrong with a Honda or Toro. I believe Honda has raised the bar.

          lawn mower
          We bought this so to enable me to continue to do my yard work. I am 81 years young and needed something that would assist me..... and be easy for me to use. After research I decided on the Honda and am very pleased.

            So far so great!
            I read countless reviews on countless manufacturers and models. And the options, warranty, service/repair and parts availability, dependability of the Honda name, and again the online reviews kept leading back to the Honda. So i purchased the HRX217K6VLAA which gave me every thing i was looking for including someone to even walk behind it and mow.... my wife! lol With the electric start she can go out and "start" the mower and go on her own. Seriously.... Electric start, easy speed and handle height adjustability and the wife is happy so I'm happy! Plenty of power and the mulch to bagging switch option is awesome. I've cleaned up the hay field(my yard) a couple of times all ready. I hope i stay in this dream for a few summers.... Thanks Honda and thanks Steensma for having it ready to go... even a full tank of gas when we came down for the demo/trial run.

              Great Mowing Experience
              I owned a top of the line Honda many years ago when I owned my own home. To the best of my knowledge the mower is still running making it over 15 years old. I never had a problem with it while I owned it. I currently rent and do the yard work for my land lord. I convinced him to buy a Honda and he did. The lawn had not been mowed all spring and the grass was ankle to knee deep. The mower had no problem with lesser height grass while using a 50:50 setting for bag and mulch function. For the knee height grass I had to weed wack it down to a ankle height and then used the mower to finish it off which I expected. Now that the grass has mowed, I expect smooth sailing for the rest of the summer.

                Great mower
                Just purchased 4/27/22. We have used it 5 times so far. Took wife a while to get use to the Select Drive, wanted to use her thumbs, kept popping wheelies. She has the hang of it now. This is our first Honda mower and first self propelled. There is no grass build up under the deck after 5 mows. Mower does all we want.

                  Quick Start Lawn Mower
                  I've owned my home for 24 years and I've gone through 2 Briggs & Stratton engine mowers which doesn't seem all that bad except I relied 100% on my boys and neighbors to start them. I finally treated myself to a Honda mower complete with electric start. The great part about it is that I can start it manually. This mower starts on a dime, runs great and I have to say it is a pleasure mowing my yard. You don't know what a hassle it is to have a non-functioning mower you can't start until you have a HONDA. Goodbye Toro/Briggs & Stratton.... HELLO HONDA!

                    difficult to operate
                    The select drive control is very tricky. The mower moves too fast on flat surfaces and way too slow on hills. I live in a wooded area. I frequently have to pause mowing to pick up sticks. Every time I stop, the motor shuts off. Very annoying.
