Questions & Answers

What is ratio mix of gas and oil to HRX 217 ?

I lost manual .
Asked by: chinh
Fuel is gasoline only. No mixing of gas and oil. Few, few modern mowers use a gasoline + oil fuel mixture.

I am looking for a great mulching mower for grass at 3 in high that does not leave clumps. Will this work for me?

My current Toro mulches great when the grass is not too high. I hate bagging the clippings because I then have to put the clippings in plastic bags and dispose.
Asked by: sr
This mower is a stud. Unless the grass is really, really wet and tall, I have NEVER had a problem with the clippings clumping up. The dual blades chop the grass so fine there is no way for them to clump. The grass is chopped so small that it almost creates a problem (if you catch the clippings) because the bag gets too heavy when it is full. The variable adjustment on the back of the mower that allows for degrees of mulching and bagging is perfect for those times when you just have to mow really wet, tall grass.

We have only used it once so far but compared to my previous mowers this is the best mower since sliced bread. Starts easily, run relatively quiet and does a great job of cutting grass. The variable speed control works great. We have Zoysia sod and keep our grass cut very short, like the length of a fairway on a golf course, and this mower can be lowered to cut the grass at this depth. Only thing I wanted on a new mower that this one does not have is where you can keep the engine running and have the blade stop so you can empty bag without mower turning off. The mower starts easily and quickly so not that big of a deal but our last mower had this. I would have thought for the money this would have done this as well as some of the lower priced Honda models have this option. I would buy this mower again in a heartbeat and am glad I spent the money on it. Mowers tend to last forever and I did not want to end up with one that I regretted buying in a couple of years. Spend the money and get the one you want and like.

After researching, it came down to this model and a Toro Super Recycler. I loved how sturdy this mower felt compared to the Toro so I went with it. Pros: Mulches well. Powerful. Starts on first pull every time. Stef Propel system is more comfortable than many mowers I have used. Cuts well. Cons: Even on full mulch, this mower still sends clippings through the bagging chute. This results in clumps dropping randomly and having to clean the chute out every time I use this mower. A google search indicates that this has been an ongoing problem for years, and one that I was willing to overlook. I still find myself using my John Deere more often even as one of the back wheels is shot. I just seem to prefer it and like not having to clean the grass chute on the Honda every time. Once Honda fixes that issue (if they ever do), they will have a phenomenal mower.

Instructions: See https://powerequipment.honda.com/lawn-mowers/models/hrx217vka Setup: Very little to do after unboxing. Pre-measured oil is provided. Once it and a tank of fuel have been added, and all packing materials have been removed, the machine is ready to go. Performance: Excellent. Start has literally always been accomplished on one pull. 190 CC engine hasn't faltered in 12 inch grass. Cut is clean and mulching has been very efficient. Unit is not particularly lightweight (around 90 lbs, per the spec sheet) but is very maneuverable and I find that, with practice, I can tailor the assist provided by the drive control to my exact needs on slopes, etc. All in all, it's easy to use. Maintenance: Straightforward, so far. Nexite mower deck appears to require little or no upkeep (other than occasional cleaning). Haven't changed the oil yet, but the air filter is easy to access and clean. Unsure of what lifetime I can expect from the drive belt.

I finally got tired of using my $30 craigslist special. This mower is an utter monster for grass. I can mulch 6"+ high grass at full speed and not leave the slightest clump. I may never discharge again. For people having issues with it leaving high blades... well sorry for you, but I do not seem to have that issue. Granted I have an idea that its maybe due to the rear wheel drive and the mower having enough power to pop wheelies. Learn some control and you should be ok. Starts on the first pull every time. Seems slightly more gas efficient than my previous mower. Its also rather quiet for such a powerful engine. If you are looking for a significant upgrade to your current push choice... this is the mower you need to get. I cant even get the thing to bog down no matter what I do to it. My old mower would choke on grass that was moderately high even discharging. Buy this thing and never look back.

After using this mower several times I believe most of the positive input is true but there is room for improvements. It is heavy and if you have lots of tight maneuvering it can be difficult. The drive system isn't as easy to use or as effective as the Toro system (my previous mower). It is well made and does do a great cut, though the wider 22" of the Toro does make a difference. The larger grass bag reduces the number of times to empty. The deck cleaning feature in the Toro is very useful, which Honda does not offer. My hope is the Honda will be more reliable and last longer than my previous Toro, particularly the drive system. Much to soon to tell.

Well this mower is replacing my very old Honda (20+ years). The old mower was a push mower, so the self propelled feature was the main selling point. The handle that engages the self-propel feature is curved and only extends part of the way across, so you have to have your hands just so. Sadly, with over an acre to mow, your hands can't move around and it becomes uncomfortable quickly. Also, the 'select drive' drops back to minimum every time I turn a corner and re-engage the propel feature. I keep having to adjust the propel speed, or worse, accept walking at the minimum speed. Why not just set it and forget it? My worst complaint though, is that the blade is always spinning. My old Honda only engaged the blade on command (one of two actuators on the handle). So, when you go to start the new mower, the blade spins. Pulling the starter rope was very difficult after just my first use. Then I realized the difference between old and new when all the grass mulch from my first use (still on deck and blades) came flying out. Once out, the mower started easily, but having to start the motor and clear the deck of old grass at the same time makes starting difficult, at best. I really wish Honda would stick with tried and true engineering. This mower has been a disappointment from the start.

Coming from a 30 year old (at least) Snapper two cycle Hi vac that was probably under powered, but really provided a nice cut,I really had high hopes for this Honda product. While it started and ran flawlessly,(hey, it's a Honda!) the cut was just lacking in crispness of appearance. The microcut blade system did OK,but just ok. Certainly not better than my $ 239.00 Lawn Boy that I bought two years ago from Home Depot. So the cut DID NOT justify the price.Others may disagree but I'm all about perceived value and this Honda just didn't cut it for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best mower, worth the money! First I was impressed by the reviews this mower got,that was important coming from honest consumers.I was sold on the positive reviews! I have a $300 TROY BUILD that cuts good but does not mulch or bag high grass,and I am changing bag every two or three rolls! Makes job longer and more work,but Troy build is solid, the 190cc rear drive...Now the HONDA, munched high grass with very little dropping, no other mower I have used could ever mulch that much grass without leaving grass everywhere! Then I tried the bag today on the church grass to see how the bag works...BEST EVER, the bag did not clogg up at the mouth of the bag,the grass goes to the back of the bag,and never left any grass behind.I had to change the bag because it was getting heavy but I could have gone more.I would change troy build about 4 times to the Honda's one time because troy build builds up grass at mouth of bag I cut a lot of grass and this mower saves me so much time,it will pay for its self! Love the double blade and full BEARING wheels, that is a plus and high quality, I am a mechanic and know a well build machine.I will buy HONDA from now on, the troy build can do the dirty work that I don't want to us HONDA for...let me stop, like I said I was sold on the good reviews, thanks folks reviews matter
