    The best lawnmower period !
    I eyed Honda lawnmowers for the past few years but never purchased one because...well.. we had a lawn cutter service and there wasn't a need for one especially when thinking of past lawnmowers that were just basic and so-so! Well due to the current times we have decided to go back to the basics and start mowing our own lawn again and i knew the Honda HRX217VKA was the ONLY lawnmower we would buy and I can say I'm extremely happy and impressed, but not surprised, by Honda's quality and craftsmanship, easy to use and some neat innovations like the easy start and bag/mulch director knob! I love this Honda and my kids will have it much easier than we did using this incredible machine! Thank you Honda!

      Mulch conditions
      When the lawn more is on March condition the door which supposed to close for the grass not to come true it’s not tight therefore there is a lot of grass getting accumulated and falls off as we are running in the most condition I’m quite disappointed because I buy a lot of equipment from Honda and that design is very poor.You can see on the picture of the gap of the light where disappointed

        Awesome mower!!
        I actually enjoy mowing my yard! I am female, 63 years young, and have never owned a mower with this much power and fantastic mulching abilities. I debated about the cost, but knowing Honda’s reliability and reputation, I bought it online. So very happy with my purchase! Just buy it!

              Game changer!
              The HRX217 has absolutely changed the game for us. We were considering a riding mower after our 6 year old Snapper started breaking down and becoming too time consuming to mow with. After buying a rider we soon realized it just wasn’t practical. Too many obstacles in the back yard and took just as long as the Snapper to complete the job. The HRX was the perfect solution. It has shaved 40 minutes off of our total mow time and is so much fun to operate! We also save an additional 20 minutes blowing. We used to have to blow the clippings into a pile and sweep them up with the old mower. The HRX mulches so finely that this is not required! Simply blow them back into the yard and move on. Our grass has literally became the greenest lawn in the neighborhood. The HRX217 was recommended to me by my brother in law. We now recommend this mower to everyone as well. Thank you Honda.

                  Quality equipment that works well, if you need a new mower you really should consider this one.
                  I bought this mother to replace a 20 year old Snapper Ninja. I'm very happy with my choice. The ergonomics are wonderful, the engine is a performer and it is well built. The simplicity is a blessing. The choke is automatic, the throttle is non adjustable but set where the engine makes the most power. Everything else is the standard adjustments. You will need to get used to the speed control. It is touchy at first until you get a feel for it and the drive belt wears in. If you are concerned about the plastic deck, don't be. The stuff it's made from feels like the same material used in some of the equipment I used in the Marines. Grass has a hard time sticking to it. I was sceptical about the twin blade, by the Honda engineers for it right. It works like it's says. Small clipping size and bags nicely. It mulches fine too. No issues there. You can tell the Honda put a lot of effort into designing this. It's simple, has nice ergonomics, performs well. Plenty of power from the engine. At full speed you are really moving. I'm military parlance you are stepping it out. On a side note it is noticeably lighter that a steel deck mower. It also has a long runtime power tank, it seems different despite running at full throttle constantly. The only thing I would like is for the handle bar to have one note height setting. I'm 6 foot tall and the highest setting is comfortable for me. In the photo you can see the size of the clippings.
