Questions & Answers

does the battery come with this purchase??

Asked by: johnny
The battery comes installed. It does not have a charger. Honda has gone to a better battery. They suggest to run it for 1 hour to initially charge the battery and to pull start it the first time.

Does the 21 inch variable speed self-propelled electric start mower allow me to discharge clippings back on the grass instead of using the bag?

Asked by: captgeorge
Yes, either by mulching feature or setting to full bag on mulching selector then do not install the rear bag. This allows rear discharge behind the mower underneath the safety cover. The full mulch setting reduces clumping of the cut grass. Rear discharge may result grass to clump behind the mower.

Do you slow the engine speed to slow the walking pace of the mower?

Asked by: KBsfishing
That will work, but the transmission is also variable speed.

21 in. Variable Speed Electric Start Gas Walk Behind Self Propelled Lawn Mower is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 373.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from The lawnmower is great!! easy Operation and smooth functioning.... The lawnmower is great!! easy Operation and smooth functioning. My overall experience however with delivery was awful!. I received my lawnmower from UPS after ordering on line. It came damaged and had to be returned which wasn't easy after putting gas and oil in it. the blade engage mechanism was bent. I then received a second mower about a week later after speaking with your resolutions dept.( they were very helpful and nice) and it too was damaged. The same mechanism was bent. Finally after speaking with Robin from resolutions dept we got a third delivered to my local store and it was good. I have had Honda products ( cars and mowers ) my whole life and was shocked that happened. Doubtful they came from the factory like that. Likely damaged in shipping. Extremely frustrating! Although my experience with "making it right" from the resolutions dept was great! The UPS guy who delivered my lawnmower told me, "well you shouldn't order lawn mowers on line" !! He could care less

Awesome mower, controls are easy to learn, it’s heavier than other mowers but still easy to maneuver.Should have bought it years ago but $$$. Would be nice if Home Depot would give military discount on on-line orders

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You want the best-you got the best I bought the Honda HRX217 HMA to replace my 20 year old Honda mower. My old one still worked fine. I just felt it was time to get a new mower. It was not a surprise to find that this new one is even better than my old one. Assembly was very easy by merely adjusting the handle bar. I charged the battery, added oil and gasoline, turned the key and I was off and running. At a top speed of 4 mph, one should realize that it is a quick pace. I can keep up, but it is a nice workout. I may use a slower setting as time goes on. Some comments have been made that it is heavy. Actually, I found it to be lighter than my old Honda. The only dislike I have is that the clutch bar swings up whereas my old was pulled from the bottom. I like the old style better. On the other hand, I am so glad I got the key start. I don't mind a pull start, but the key start is just so convenient. I am really happy with this mower and I feel it is worth the money.

After 16 years with my current Honda I upgraded to an electric start for this retired guy. Starts great but only in use a few weeks. I was surprised by the extra weight 102 lbs , 19 lbs heavier than my previous Honda because of the electric start functionality. But that is why you also need the hydro transmission with this puppy. I gave my 16 year old Honda mower away. It still was useable but needed that pull to start and a glug of oil each time. Not a bad record for Honda. I expect this one to last just as long. The tires only last about 10 years as I had to replace those (bald) on my older version...) Did receive this mower via UPS drop shipment. The unit was damage free but could have used extra packaging on the ends to keep the unit from shifting in the box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent mower Researched 2016 self propelled mowers when my 15 year old mower was passed to my son. Research showed Honda mowers to be of the highest recommendation from a number of independent review sources. Electric start was a "must" function that limited my search but was hampered in that local providers did not have all models to do a hands on assessment. Finally chose this model because I could not quantify the benefit of all features and wanted a relatively fast speed with adjustments. Have been very pleased after four mowings - assembly and operation were easy. Electric start is very nice and works well, separate motor speed and drive speed are nice and separate blade/drive controls are excellent. Adjustable speed is very nice but probably would have been ok with the 4 speed model for $150 less. Cutting and bagging performance is excellent and much better than my 15 year old model. A few tips on using the two clutch controls and operation might benefit new Honda owners.

It was time to upgrade to a newer version of a Honda mower. I love this lawn mower. The electric start is fantastic. All you do is turn a key and the lawn mower starts. But if you want, you can pull the cord and it will start right away as well. One thing, if pulling the cord to start, turn the key a little to the right before pulling the chord. It mows the lawn very well. The mulching does a great job. I did not use the bag yet.k Honda makes great lawn mowers that last for many years. Honda - one suggestion - start making the wheels to be "rubber" and not "plastic" like they are on our mowers. Keep making great mowers Honda! John

Rated 4 out of 5 by from All in the extras - Nice mower Nice mower and love the extra features that other mowers do not have. The mower cuts and mulches very good. The reason you buy this mower is for the Hydrostatic drive, Versamower, Roto stop and electric start. If these are of no concern then look elsewhere as it all comes with a hefty cost. I really appreciate being able to stop the mower and continue running while picking up debries and toys. Electric start is nice for the older people saving wear and tare on pulling. The Hydrostatic is nice as you can adjust to YOUR speed and not theirs. The Versamower option allows you to choose how much grass to bag leaving some food for your lawn without making it look like a mess in tall grass situations. If your budget allows for the added expense and the features interest you then I do recommend this mower as no one else has these features other then the electric start. Just wish it didn't cost so much and reason for 4 stars and not 5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stop !! Quit Looking !! Buy This Mower !! As a Toro guy of many years, I have found the best lawnmower. Yes it's expensive, but get over it. I have been fooling myself by thinking i was cutting my lawn properly. When my last Toro bit the dust, I started in a different direction. I researched and looked, until my partner at work (who is someone who only buys the absoulte best of the best) says to me" you'll never regret buying this Honda." So now I've used my Honda five times, my lawn looks fantastic. After the second time I used the mower, I was completely at ease with it. Using the key start and not having to charge it ( like my old Toro) is awesome. It's a heavy deck, but that's fine. The mower is easier to use then you would think. The cut is even, the engine is powerful and really quiet. The blade clutch is a fantastic option. The bag is huge and I really like how it mulches. The deck cleans easily and the mower folds away nicely. If you want to buy an excellent lawn mower and you can afford the price tag, don't hesitate. Buy this Honda.
