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
No. Engine speed is controlled separate from mower forward speed. With the larger engine on this model I have not yet encountered a challenge to power needed for grass cutting and self propelled feature. So far so good after 2 years.

21 in. Variable Speed Electric Start Gas Walk Behind Self Propelled Lawn Mower is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 328.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Honda walk behind lawn mower is a beast. I've put this thing through the paces since last Sep... The Honda walk behind lawn mower is a beast. I've put this thing through the paces since last September and the Honda has never failed me. The model I purchased is HRX217HZA, electric start. I know, some of you old fashioned foks love your pull starts, but hey, I'm the 'whatever makes your life easier' kinda guy! Electric start baby! I purchased the Honda after owning a Lawnboy for about a year and a half. My poor Lawnboy still serves me, but it couldn't pass muster when it came to tall grass. My property is pretty large ( 13 acres) and yeah, there's a lot of grass, lol! But before you ask, uh, no I don't mow all 13 acres with a push mower, but some days it does seem like that, lol! Selective mowing baby, selective mowing, and power to the meadow! This model has a neat feature that allows you to keep the mower running even with hand's off the handle bars, but, wait! there's more! There is a safety feature built in that stops the blade when you release the handle bars, but keeps the engine idling - saving drain on the battery for a restart AND saving the back from the pull cord, lol! I love it! It's great for when I'm emptying the clippings - unhook the bag, empty it clip it back on and keep on mowing. The blade start handle and powered wheels handle does take some getting used to, but it's a small learning curve. One thing I did not like too much is the gas tank opening - I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, but I'm always overfilling, lol! Either I'm a fool and filling too fast or the gas tank opening needs a redesign to make no-spill refilling a reality. *Hint *Hint, Honda engineers! The double blades are great and chops the grass small - makes for more and better compacting of clippings for the bag. Some folks have criticized the handle for being a tad long - and I do see that, the handle to body is longer than I'm used to seeing versus other brands. But I think this was designed to make maneuvering the beast easier - cuz the Honda is a bit on the heavier side, but man it is a beast! This thing handles tall grass with ease and if you see my photos below, I've chomped through end of season goldenrods and tall grass and keeps on going! The high density composite plastic deck (Honda marketing calls it by some other lingo) is a breeze to clean. And no rust! So far, it's kept to the hype, this thing has chomped through tall almost pencil-thick goldenrod stems and both the composite deck and dual blades are in fantastic condition. Puppy dog sure loves the 'secret path' mown through the tall grass ! TLDR; a beast of a machine - chomps through tall grass with ease, composite deck is easy to clean and does not rust, dual blades cut finer grass clippings for better compaction and composting Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a Mower! I purchased this mower a few weeks ago and Im very happy with my purchase. All my homework steered me to a Honda especially when one of my neighbors told me he has had his for 20 years with out issues. I went with the electric start because I dont plan on getting another one if this out lasts me!

Plenty of power to get through lots of wet leaves and fine brush. Reduced an old leaf pile to 1/10th the volume as it mulches so finely. The mulch/bag mechanism works great, controls are super easy and zero issues with hand strain.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great mower, but heavier than any others I have owned. It has a bit of a learning curve before it... Great mower, but heavier than any others I have owned. It has a bit of a learning curve before it can be maneuvered in tight areas, and the rear drive takes some getting used to. Overall, very good performance. Reliability is unknown, likely good. My last Honda mower served me well for over 20 years, the Toro was not as good, nor as reliable. If weight is an issue, be advised this is closer to walking behind a tractor- not a mower to be muscled into place. Planning each pass accordingly is essential. I am 63, and quite fit/strong, but this may become a problem in coming years. Overall, I really like it, but it takes more muscle to operate it than I anticipated.
