Does anything special need to be done to the battery when stored in the northern Midwest over the Winter?
Asked by: CGH
Since we do not have severe winters in Central Texas, I cannot answer for severe winters, but I always either remove the battery and charge it periodically or use a solar panel trickle charger to insure that the battery stays charged.

Do i really need electric start?

Torn berween this one and the $599 one. Is it worth the $80.00 extra?
Asked by: Scott832
In my opinion Do Not waste your money. The electric start on my mower has been totally unreliable (not to mention the mower itself). Honda has replaced the battery three times, they have replaced the coil at least three times. The engine has been replaced once. If you are bagging your grass and need to empty the bag several times the battery will not enough to use the electric start. The charger for the battery is expensive so you need to think about that and now for the "OH BY THE WAY" you must remove the battery from the mower to charge the battery. If you charge the battery for more than 24 hours you will cook the battery. On the positive side Honda has honored the warranty so far.

GCV190 21 in. Nexite Deck 4-in-1 Select Drive Walk Behind Gas Self Propelled Mower with Electric Start is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 147.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent mower! This mower is a blast to use. I previously owned a Toro Recycler and it lasted me about 5-6 years which was good, however I had problems with it in its later life. So I decided to purchase this beast, and let me tell you its the Cadillac of mowers! It starts with ease ( electric start) and has a mulch and bag option! Let me tell you it mulches awesome with its twin blades, and goes over thick grass like its nothing! It has variable speed control and it moves with ease. Honda's customer service department is one of the best around.. I would recommend this mower to anyone wanting a quality lawn mower with less hassle!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fouling and not basketball I bought the previous iteration of this unit last fall. I am now putting in my fourth spark plug this summer. The spark plugs keep fouling (Honda plugs from Home Depot). I have been putting fuel stabilizer in after the first two failures and has not helped. Went to two Honda repair dealers and they wanted months to keep and work on the mower. So meant no cutting the lawn this summer. (Not a bad idea, since it is not my favorite thing.) When it works, it is a great mower, just have to either replace plug or prime the plug by dipping into gasoline and putting it back in before gas evaporates (only works twice).

Not sure why other people have had issue with this or others like it. the only con is that its heavy but that also adds to its stability. the drive system is great. takes a moment to get used too but one finger touch to go. key start right out of the box. no messing with choke or prime. turn key, it starts. bagging system matched with the deck and twin blades made my bagging go from 6 stops to empty to one (so far). a touch difficult to set height on all four wheels. engine didn't change its sweet tone at any time as I was mowing tall grass. took side hills well. just hoping on longevity because this mower is awesome.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed - Carburetor Problem after 1 year I am a devoted Honda buyer, whether that be cars or small engine devices. I've been disappointed here, however. After 1 yr. the mower is surging. I followed the right process in the fall putting it to bed. The Honda authorized dealer says surging is bad gas and Honda won't cover it. It was new gas in the mower. Ultimately I'll fix it myself, but I've never had a problem like this before. I have multiple houses with multiple mowers and none of the others acted like this and they used the same gas. I expect more from Honda.. Kyle Provo UT

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Self propelled FAIL The engage handle for the self propelled feature stripped on day 2. I took it apart to find a cheap piece of plastic that holds the pin on the handle end of the cable. The plastic was poorly cast allowing the pin to pop out of the track that is supposed to guide it. Now get to wait on warranty repair at the shop that is open Monday thru Friday 8 to 5 (which means I can't get it there until Saturday, and they are backed up for over a week). What a huge disappointment after spending nearly $700.00 on a lawn mower!

Getting older and bad back did not want to do pull start any more and self propel also helps. Some words of advice - put a rope/wire on the key. You only get one and mine vibrated out. Found it, put it on a string, and also ordered another spare just in case. Also start on flat ground with speed dial on lowest setting, gradually turn it up until you understand the drive feel. Otherwise you jump and lurch like learning a clutch the first time. Once you have the feel, you can roll smoothly on the flat, then give it some gas going up an incline. Mulch and bag settings provide alternatives depending on grass height.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! I love the rear wheel drive for negotiating the ditches. The speed control is very helpful when getting through the thick spots or slowing it down when going downhill. I highly recommend this mower if you have lots of slope to your yard or if you just want a mower that is easy to start and control.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth every single dollar I read review after review and this one was top on Consumer Reports. If you haven't ever owned a self propelled it takes about 20 min to get the hang of it and after that you will be wondering why you didn't purchase it sooner. It was great options with the clipping, which is so nice. When you first start the mower it sounds a little scary bc the engine makes a pulsing sound but give it like 20 secs and it's good to go.with that solid engine roar.
