Directions say to release yellow blade button after engaged button will not release stays down will this harm mower

Asked by: Mower in ct
The button is meant to be pushed down in order to "engage," then it stays down. If it were to pop up, the blades would disengage. "Releasing" the button simply means taking your finger off of it. If it pops up, you have to do it all over again, this time slower. It disengages on its own regularly - you have to listen for it, since it will not CUT unless the button stays down.

Why is there no side discharge option?

Why is there no side discharge option?
Asked by: Michael
Elite Honda mowers have no side discharges. They have a manual switch allowing you to go from mulch to mulch&bag to bag. This mower is for people who like their yard free of dead grass.

Is the bagger and all the bag extensions parts included? I read it needed to be purchased separately on the comparison chart.
Asked by: Sb
Yes, the bagger and all necessary accessories are included. All you need to add is gasoline (even the motor oil comes with the mower).

This is based on using only using 3 times ....Out of the box very easy to set up. after following the instructions it started on the first pull and has started on the first pull every time since. The power is incredible, which makes for a huge reduction in my fatigue ... the mower is doing all the work. I have a very thick lawn and mulch everything... this mower cuts through everything without skipping a beat. Never once has there been any indication of stalling. The one issue I have ... this is just a personal opinion and may go against all the safety rules ... The lever to engage the blades ... after a while my grip gets tired of holding it so, to compensate I wrap the blade lever against the main handle with a piece of velcro. No big deal, I'm sure it's a safety measure, but the velcro makes it easier on the arthritis in my hands ... pulling the velcro to stop the blades only takes a second and I think I'm smart enough not to go poking around the body while the blades are engaged.

I was very hesitant to shell out $679. for a lawn mower. After reading many of the reviews on the home depot website and the high rating given by Consumer Report. I decided to give it a shot. I am so glad that I did. I opted for the free shipping to my home which arrived in a few days. Setup was a breeze. It literally took less than ten minutes and half of that was spent giving the manual a quick glance. I put in the oil that was provided. Unfolded the handle, put the cover on the bagger frame. Attached it to the mower. One pull and off I went. As stated by other purchasers, the dual blades in mulch mode cut so well I took the bagger off. I regret not having purchased a Honda mower sooner. The ability to change the walk speed is a big plus along with the ability to stop the mower without the engine shutting off to change the bag or move something out of the way. The rear wheel drive is strong and handles hills well. So far no issues at all.

I originally bought the predecessor to this lawnmower 10 years ago, and would still be using it - and raving about it - if I hadn't struck a buried obstruction last season and bent the crankshaft. My new Honda has a redesigned carburetor for easier starting (it does), but is otherwise the same mower. The Honda engine always starts with one easy pull, the hydrostatic transmission speed is infinitely adjustable, and there isn't a more efficient bagger made. I particularly like the blade brake clutch feature, which makes it possible to empty the bag or remove obstructions without having to shut the mower off. This mower is pricey, but I think worth it. And it will run forever - as long as you avoid obstructions! One last comment - my mower was shipped directly to my house, but arrived with a handle that had been damaged in transit. Home Depot Customer Service was a joy to deal with, made the return quick and painless, and even gave me an unsolicited discount for my inconvenience. I'll be back!

Had a Honda mower for 28 years, it finally died, and I got a fairly new Craftsman mower from a relative. After a couple of years, I had enough. This Honda mower makes it a joy to cut the grass again. Rear wheel drive that actually drives the mower, and with plenty of speed. Tires that don't tear up the grass. A handle that doesn't require gloves to run. Twin blades that mulch so nicely. Goes through long grass and wet grass without having to go over the whole lawn twice to get rid of clumps of grass. Expensive, but divide that money by 25 years, and then think about 25 years of fighting with an inferior mower compared with breezing though the lawn. There's a reason people are willing to spend that kind of money on a mower!

Love the option to walk away without shutting engine off. It mulches everything to very fine clippings. Honda makes good mowers and small engines for them. I put a Honda 13hp GXV390 engine on my 30 year old Snapper 7 years ago and still amazed how easy it is to crank. Hope it will last a long time without issues. I always use non-ethanol gas for all my yard equipment and put fuel extender in the can after filling. This helps from ever having carburetor problems. Note: I do recommend on picking one up at the store. Honda does not use boxes made for UPS shipping. I went through 2 tries at home delivery from Home Depot. The 1st one was evident UPS stood the box on the end which punched holes where the handle mechanism folds over. The handle arms were all bent up. The 2nd try the box was beat up and I could see they stood it up on the end just like the first time but no damage to handle. The entire deck was covered with a oil like substance that didn't appear to be engine oil. My guess it was a damaged gear box that was leaking oil. Don't know if happened during shipping or came from factory. After this one I decided to get online and find the nearest Home Depot store who had them in stock since my local stores didn't. I drove 20 miles where they had 4 in stock. They were kind enough to take it out of the box to prove no damage, put the bag kit together in less than 5 minutes and I rolled it up to checkout without the box. One of the best experiences I've had at a Home Depot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from honda mower I purchased this mower from Home Depot. I take pride in my yard so I wanted the best mower money could buy. At 800 bucks I wanted this to be the last mower I would ever purchase. For the most part this is a great mower. It cuts my grass very well. Starts in the first or second pull every time. The blade stop and easy mulch or bag are easy and great features. My only complaint so far is trouble with the transmission varible speed. After a year the varible speed stopped shifting into the higher speed. I changed the spark plug and the problem seemed to correct it self, only to return a month later. I placed my mower in the shop and 70 bucks later I have my mower back. I just dont feel a 800 dollar should need repair after one year of moderate use. I bought this mower because of honda reputation and I see all the gardeners use this same type of mower for professional land scaping . I will keep my eye on this proplem however I regret spending 800 for a mower. A 400 mower would have worked just as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 17 year old Honda mower I purchased my one and only Honda Harmony 215 self-propelled lawn mower in 1995. Since then this mower has mowed at least an acre of grass once a week every season since 1995. I have replaced the blades countless times, the rear wheels twice and the engine oil once a season. That’s it…….. This mower has never been in the shop for any reason in 17 years. The mower has started on the first or second pull every single time. I credit the gas shut off valve with this. I always turned the fuel off and allowed the mower to run out of gas before storing. Without question the best mower I have every owned! I wish I had a dollar for every hour this mower has run in the Texas heat and dust. I am sad to report that last week while mowing the back yard of our new residence I found an old railroad spike our Lab dug up and the mower sent the spike through the deck of the mower. I guess it’s time to replace the old girl with a NEW Honda HRX. The only mower I will every buy.. Thanks Honda and Home Depot!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Buyer beware! This is not truly a "self-propelled" mower in the same sense as my old trusty Hond... Buyer beware! This is not truly a "self-propelled" mower in the same sense as my old trusty Honda which had 3 speeds, and which actually ran at those speeds. The GCV190 does have power to the wheels, but pushing the power lever is merely like pushing the accelerator of a car - if you're going uphill it goes slow or not at all; if you're going downhill it runs away from you. Since you have only two hands, there's no way to continually adjust the power, and thus no way on earth to keep the speed constant. After 6 uses I've given up, and use the wheel power only to overcome the inertia after stopping to turn a corner (and occasionally on a steep uphill) - otherwise I just use it as a push mower - a very heavy push mower. It mows and mulches very well, as others have said, but if you have a lawn that's remotely hilly (like almost all here in New Hampshire), I would recommend looking elsewhere.
