Great mower, until...
Bought this Honda mower in April of 2016, and have been extremely pleased with it. It only takes one pull to start and mowing height can easiky be adjusted with just one hand. The handle height is easy to adjust, and it can be completly folded over, which saves space when storing it. The paddles for the self propell feature are also easily adjusted, which is nice to have if you have more than one person who uses the mower. My only complaint is that the self-propell feature suddenly ceased functioning a few days ago, so I ended up having to push the mower instead of it pulling me along, which made the job harder than usual. After I finished mowing my lawn, i cleaned and inspected mower, in search of any obvious problems that would cause the self-propelling feature to stop working, but I found no problems, so now I’ll have to take it to a repair shop. It is no longer under the original manufacture warranty, but lucky for me, I also purchased an extendeed warranty when i bought the mower. So i guess we’ll see how things turn out.

        great mower
        Easy to adjust height of the handle bar, easy to start, easy to regulate the travel speed, well balanced and easy to turn. This replaced a similar Honda model purchased 17 years ago, expect the same performance from this one.

        Positives: starts well and easily. Runs quiet for a lawn mower. Easy to assemble. Negatives: This is my second Honda mower. Both have the same problems. First is minor in that it can be messy changing the oil unless you are very careful. Second problem is truly frustrating. After a few uses, the rear wheels lock up when trying to pull the mower rearward. It is a widespread problem and acknowledged by Honda service dealers as a problem Honda can’t seem to figure out. You can clean, you can lube, and it’s still going to stick. I took it to a dealer who said it only needed cleaning. Brought the mower home and after 15 minutes the wheels started locking up. I love the engine but hate the transmission. I hope to never meet a Honda mower engineer.

          I purchased this for Honda reliability. Love it EXCEPT for the fact that it no longer will roll when pulling backwards. Very frustrating and may very well deter me from purchasing another Honda mower.

              Good for 2 summers
              This mower was good for two summers. After that it started cutting unevenly despite the wheels all being on the same setting (left cuts higher than right side). Also while it technically self propels, after 2 years it doesn't really have any power to it any more to do any real self propelled work. I'd avoid this mower.

              I've had this mower for 2 months & I'm beyond the break in period as I have a rather large yard in the Houston area. Due to all the rain we've received this Spring the Honda has had a real workout. I couldn't be more pleased with my switch from many years with Toro to this Honda. It plows effortlessly thru thick grass, pine cones, small branches, & all kinds of leaves (incl. Magnolia). If you need a powerful mower to do a big job I think u will be pleased. Pros Plenty of power Very smooth & precise cut Has a sturdy feel Easy maintenance Cons A bit heavy when pulling in reverse The thumb speed control is a bit different but I'm adjusting to it

              So far the performance has been great. It starts easier than any mower I have ever owned: minimal effort, one pull. The fuel tank is larger than my previous mowers. I never have to refill with about ten passes left. The self-propel is different but easily adjustable. The cut is excellent.

              This is my second year with this mower. I’m very happy with it. The clippings bag doesn’t connect very effectively but I have little use for bagging the clippings so it wasn’t an issue for me.

                This lawnmower is the easiest to set up and use straight out of the box! I did my research and this was a great purchase! Some people said you need two people to lift the lawnmower out of the box.....why lift? I cut open one end of the box with a box cutter and pushed the lawnmower out...piece of cake! Highly recommend!

                I have used this twice this spring so far. The overall quality is excellent. The self propell is very easy to use. It will pull you if you have the self propell pushed down all the way. It cuts amazing with the twin blades. Best mower for the money hands down.
