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 160.

It wasn't dead but was dying. I decided it was time for a new Toro but decided to do some research first. Glad I did. All signs pointed to Honda and when I really broke the price down I couldn't find a reason not to order. Wow best decision ever. Right out of the box it took me a little more than 2 minutes to set up and crank. Started immediately. I decided to torture test it right out of the box. I have lemon grass all over the yard and hate cutting and bagging it. I decided to see if this mower could handle it. Boy did I have no clue. In a little over 2 minutes this thing chewed through what would have taken me at least 10-15 minutes to bag. And used half the space in a trash bag. It then made quick and easy work of the yard in record time. The self propelled mechanism on the Honda is far and beyond the personal pace system on a Toro. Cutting my lawn was effortless. Could not even imagine a way to be happier with this purchase.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bought Honda HRX217VLA in-store, missing manual, key, & oil. ... Bought Honda HRX217VLA in-store, missing manual, key, & oil. They printed manual, gave non-Honda-brand oil, & mailed key (came later & works). Mower starts easily with pull cord. Oil bottle had short neck; Honda ones are long. Mower oil tank is at steep angle, & oil dripped from bottle, & w/ a funnel. Had to pour oil into measuring cup, tip mower on side, & add oil. Gas tank fills easily. Grass bag has plastic, tight clips & need leverage to put on frame. Tried to mow lawn at lowest setting to remove grass & reseed. The mower dug into the dirt, & stopped after mowing a few feet, so adjusted wheels to higher setting to work. Manual says to keep the front wheels 1-2 settings higher than rear to shred leaves & keep Clip Director at #9 & adjust. At position #9, leaves went into bag & also out right side of mower bottom. Fully closed, it still did this, but less, so mowed clockwise, to clean up leaves moving to center of mowing pattern. Leaves blew onto sidewalk & driveway; tried to blow leaves back onto grass with mower itself, to avoid having to sweep. Mower removes leaves, cuts grass, & self-propels easily & works very well.

The mower has only been used twice at this time because the growth of the grass has slowed. Read the instructions for adjustments and cautions before trying to use it. After adding the oil and adjusting the drive cable per instructions, it started electrically out of the box on the first try. The battery was already charged and did not require a manual start. I found it easy to use and took only a few minutes to adapt to using the drive function. I found that unless you get the weight off the rear wheels they are very hard to adjust for height. We only use the mulching option which gave a good result. Unlike other mowers I've owned this has very specific instructions to ensure easy starting. For maintenance of the blades and oil changes it can only be turned on its right side. The only reason for 4 stars over 5 is its weight. My wife found it a little hard to pull back because of that, but not so much that it was a problem.

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).
