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.

I got help from a Home Depot Manager who said that a nut had to be loostened, which is not mentioned in the user manual. The rear wheel height adjustment is locked in place. I am unable to change the wheel height (the front one is fine, but I am limited to one height). Also the lever to change from bagging to mulch is stuck in the mulch position, which is currently my choice, but if I wish to change it, I will have a problem. On the plus side, it does a great job of mowing. Love the electric start which self charges, a major convenience.

Awkward in starting engine and then you have to restart after each time you have to empty a bag. Should have bought the model that has independent blade and throttle control.

RPM's cycle for a minute but I find that good as it reminds me it's still warming up. Speed control is a little inconsistent but I have only used the mower twice, maybe I just need to get nuances of it. Definitely a huge step up from my old Poulan pro. Traction is good and makes mowing almost effortless. I had no issues with errant clippings like a few had. Unlike my old mower, when I get done I have no clippings on my clothes.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed Let me start off that i needed a new lawn mower after my craftsman that i had for 18 years trouble free started to give me trouble. I decided to get the top of the line honda with electric start. After i read all the reviews from the experts that rated it number 1so I decided to get it. When i got home and started it up it seems that it wanted to stall out. I call honda about it and they told me it was normal. It was the automatic choke feature. It did not seem normal to me because my craftsman lawn mower was smooth as soon as i started it. The next time i cut my grass it did it again and took a minute to smooth out as i went to cut the grass the honda lawn mower die out when i try to restart it i could not. Very disapointed in honda overprice lawn mower. Return it to home depot for refund. I went back to buy a craftsman lawn mower. Never will buy s honda again.

Have been mowing for 60 years and it's the best walk behind mower I ever had! Love the adjustable speed control which is right at your fingertips, electric start fires right off every time! The thing I'm happiest about is that with the dual blades it does great job mulching the grass! I've only had it about 3 weeks but I look forward to many years with this mower it definitely deserves A+ rating!

Battery was charged and started quickly. Self propelled speed allows for fast pace if desired. This mower should last for decades. Only minor complaint was the plastic covering the handle has some sharp spots that felt uncomfortable but smoothed out nicely after rubbing with some sand paper. If you wear gloves it's a non issue.

Because it's not a real transmission, this makes it hard to maintain a constant speed on a hilly lawn like ours. It also seems this mechanism is going to result in frequent belt replacement because of wear. I returned this model in exchange for a similar model but with the hydro-static transmission, HRX217HYA. The self-propel works much better and has a fabulous cut. I'm mixed on the electric start feature. On one hand if you have trouble with a pull cord it could be an important feature. On the other hand, it's another item to maintain and the battery needs to be recycled at the end of its life every few years. Our Home Depot does not recycle batteries. The exchanged model HRX217HYA does not have electric start, but it starts on the first pull, so the lack of electric start has not been a problem (and never has been since we never had a lawn mower with electric start anyway).
