Questions & Answers

I'm looking at the Honda #HRX217K4VLA. How does it work if you need to pull the mower backward?

If you release the self-propelled lever and pull the mower backward, will the wheels turn freely or will they remain engaged so that you're basically dragging the mower across the grass. Of course, I will be going forward 95% of the time, yet there are instances (e.g., under trees or other tight spaces) where it is much easier to pull the mower backward than to try to turn it around. Thank you.
Asked by: Johnny
Awesome. Simply release the variable speed handle, the wheels turn freely and the mower pulls backwards without resistance.

i got honda from home depot 7 years ago where can get tune up &shaper blade

Asked by: bob
Home Depot sells replacement blade sets for the Honda HRX model mowers. Visit Honda's web site (Honda.com) to get a list of service providers for tune ups. Most John Deere dealers also service Honda mowers.

many complaints about electric start.

Is it true that the mower needs to run an hour between electric starts?
Asked by: wally
Worked for me out of the box. They sell an optional charger and claim it will work for the season....i just ordered it but even manual is easy with the auto choke. Good luck...it is a nice mower.

Customer Reviews

21 in. Nexite Deck Electric Start Gas Walk Behind Self Propelled Lawn Mower with Versamow Technology is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 127.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! Purchasing was simple. Mower arrived on time and box wasn't damaged. Love the electric start! Rear wheel drive and Honda controls took a little to get used to but was easy to manage after about 15 minutes of adjusting to what I liked for me. The cut looks fantastic BUT.... I have fescue and prefer tall thick grass. I set the adjustments as high as possible and the cut was still higher that I like but not so much that I want to return the mower. I used to live in Florida where my grass was very healthy at 5". I live in TN now and 4" seems to be the avg. If I were in Florida still I wouldn't be too happy about the height. I'm not sure if I'm getting a 4" cut now, appears to be less. If you have other type grass that's healthy at a shorter length this will not be an issue.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Won’t start After owning. 1 1/2 years. Mower starts and fails to keep running. Spent a lot of money on this mower. I only mow .13 acres. And it stays in a heated garage all winter long. Went through new plug gs and oil. Still having issues

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sorry I Wasted My Money Since buying this mower I have had nothing but trouble. It has been in the shop 5 times for starting issues. My mower is a lemon. Honda sent a tech from their office to fix it and it was fine. Took the mower in for a blade sharpening and oil change and now back to square one. The battery will not stay charged even with mulching meaning never stopping. As of now I wish Honda would replace the mower. This is the worst purchase that I have ever made.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Speed cntrol not good Only purchase this mower if you have a flat yard. The variable speed control is very difficult to control on non-flat surfaces. Set the speed for low and it will not go up an incline at all. Set it at a higher speed to get uphill and it will pull away from you when you get on a flat or downhill surface. Have mowed my yard one time and it gave me an absolute workout, one that I never experienced with my 20 year old Honda with three speeds (slow, medium, fast). This should not happen with a state of the art mower. Otherwise it started easily and ran well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Mower I got this mower on a black Friday special for $399. Terrific price. I fired it up out of the box with just 2 pulls after filling it with oil and fuel. It mows evenly and does an awesome job of bagging. It exceeds my expectations. I love the variable drive. Even my grandson who will mow with it thinks it is awesome. It replaces an 18 year old Honda Nexite deck mower, so you know the quality it there.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Mower Purchased a month ago and the only complaint I have is that the electric start did not work (hence the 4 stars). I will be taking it to a service center to have it fixed under warranty. As to the mower, awesome mulching capability and manual starting with the pull cord was simple and easy. It took care of a leaf covered lawn with no problems whatsoever.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the mower to buy The mower took longer to charge than I thought had to mow my yard twice for the battery to charge. Once it did this is great. The two blade system cuts the grass and leaves into small pieces. The bag is easy to use.
Date published: 2015-12-30
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Delivery The lawnmower was delivered on its side with oil leaking through the box. I had to rebuild the carburetor and change the air filter. The battery for the electric start will not hold a charge and the starter itself is defective and needs to be replaced. Since the purchase is so recent, I have not had an opportunity to contact Honda as to getting the mower repaired.
