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 3 out of 5 by from 2nd one, and still no electric start! I'm on my second one. The first one had an issue that the starter would spin, but not engage to start the motor. Returned! Second one home now, and would not start out of the box. Pull strted like the manual said and ran the mower for 45 minutes and still would not start. Started again, ran for another 30 minutes then the starter tried to spin but went flat after about 5 seconds. I have called Honda customer support with no response after the first one. Called again, we'll see if anyone responds. I would say so far I'm not impressed. If I get starting issues resolved I may keep the mower. I ptretty much figure this day in age where companies don't really care what stuff they put out this is as good as it gets. Did get my lawn mowed with the first one, bagging. It operated great as long as you don'tmind pull start. Will probably exchange for the non electric start and save some money if I can't get this to work. If anything gets better, I will update this review.

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 5 out of 5 by from As expected, Honda is the best. My first Honda is 13 yrs. old. Puff of smoke on first start of the season, but starts with-in three pulls after sitting all winter. Going to hand down to my daughter. This new mower is even better. If this one lasts like the last one, it will be my last mower. I'm 62 now and have grandsons that will take over (LOL) (hopefully). As with all things, you get what you pay for. After assembly (put oil and gas in it), it started the first very EASY pull. Amazing. My mother could start this. I let it run for about 2 mins. Since it was raining, I didn't mow, but started it again about an hour later to show it off to my neighbor. It has set for two days, finally stopped raining. I tried the key, not expecting anything, but it started right up. So much for an hour mowing time to charge the battery. MAYBE a total of five minutes? Can't wait unit the grass needs mowing again. LOL.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best mower i have ever owned! I have owned a different major brand for the last 20+ years and was going to buy a new one until I was talked into this one. I am very glad I was. The cut is much better and it cuts the clippings into much finer particles. I have always been a "bagger" but with this mower the clippings are so small they do not clog up under the mower deck even when the grass is on the wet side. The electric start works flawlessly and it also recharges the battery while you mow ...very nice feature. The handle for the power drive does take a little getting use to it but when you are in a corner and cannot get behind it to push it works very well. Overall I would not hesitate to purchase another Honda but I hope that will be many years down the road.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My new favorite mower!! This was only my first time using the mower but it worked very well! It made the steep hill in my back yard effortless with the rear drive system. It functioned much nicer than my friends Toro that was only a year or two old, cut better and you could tell the quality was a night and day difference. I loved that the grass pieces could be mulched or bagged, or a combination of both AND they were cut into much smaller pieces, making cleanup....or bagging much easier since you could fit more into the same size bag. The quality of the cut was also excellent, it looks a lot nicer than some of my neighbors using non Honda products as well. Let's also not forget that it moves quick so cutting time is down some also which is a big advantage, even on my 1/4 acre yard. I love this thing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Honda HRX2174VLA - Da Best Setup, within five minutes I was cutting the lawn. The mower is pre-assembled and just add oil and go. The electric, self-charging start is innovtive and effective, but with one pull the puppy also starts. The Smart-Drive is is very easy to use and adapt to my pace. The twing-blade mowing is ideal for mulching, but also works well for complete bagging. The engine is very powerful and when bagging works like a vacume to pick up any clipping on the driveway. The Honda is more expensive than other lawnmowers, but then again you are paying for engineered quality, features and a powerful engine that will do anything you ask from mowing the lawn to picking up leaves. My only regret is that I did not buy this mower years ago, would have made lawn work a snap.

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 5 out of 5 by from Good Cut, Easy Start This mower is able to power through my tallest grass and weeds (4+ inches at the beginning of this season), gives a nice even cut, and has a really easy start (pull or key). The only criticism I have is that the deck length (not width) to handle ratio is long so mowing my steep ditches is a little awkward. Not impossible just a bit off, but this might change once I get used to the mower.
