Q: Good morning,

I see that the Honda HRX217HZA has a non-metal mowing deck (with a lifetime warranty). What material is it made out of and on an uneven surface will the deck flex? Thanks

by Floyd Sandlin from Washington on August 11, 2012

A: Floyd - the mower deck on the Honda HRX217HZA is made from "NEXITE", which is a polymer material that is very similar to what is used to make football helmets and car bumpers. The mower will not flex when mowing uneven surfaces.

Hrx217hya Is Worth It!
For me this was my first Honda mower and my first self propelled mower. I shopped around a lot after i had problems with my tractor and bought a push reel mower while i found the right gas mower while it cut well if the grass got too long i was in trouble.

I settled on the Honda even though I still think it is just a little more than i would like to have paid. Ordered from PED because they didn't seem like a fly by night place. They had all the details clear and a great selection. Order... more
Pros: Durable, Features, High Quality, I'd Buy It Again

Excellent Customer Service!
Received the mower and opened the box only to find that the handlebar was bent beyond repair which rendered the mower unusable. I contacted PED and they ordered an immediate pick-up and shipped me another mower the same day.

Second mower arrived and started on the first pull, when I went out to start it again it refused to start. After several attempts and a mounting level of disgust I was ready to send this one back too. I went out and tried again and it started on the first pull...hope... more

An Articulate Beast!
Finally was able to get this machine out this weekend to try it out on our St Augustine.......The grass was 6 inches tall in a few places and I was able to collect the grass in the catcher and make it through. Definitely was extremely satisfied with the power and the quality of the cut.......In my opinion, this Honda was well worth the cost......

This is my second Honda mower. The first lasted 25 years, and if this one lasts the same it will probably outlive me. Great mower, good price, quick delivery.

Honda Workhorse
I am just going to reiterate what others have noted in their reviews here on Mowers Direct and other review websites or forum boards.

I purchased the HYA model with the Roto-stop feature and glad I did. The engine is powerful enough to comb through my very thick tall (and I mean tall) Fescue grass with ease. Up and down hills never a problem for my .5 acre of lush heavily fertilized lawn. The Nexite deck is growing on me as it does not seem to clog up like a steel or aluminum deck. The... more

A Small Tribute
Hey, this is a Honda, a tribute to W. Edwards Deming. That is why Japanese industry is that reliable. When they say easy start, it starts easily. When you expect it to operate as the manual shows it does.

I suggest as I do on all my engines, after the break in time, change the oil to Mobil I synthetic,0-40, another tribute to American ingenuity. Your engine will last decades. I buy two sets of blades, the spare set can be sharpened at your leisure to perfection. Height adjustment is... more

It's A Beast!!
Thanks Mowers Direct.

I wanted a torque machine that would drag me kicking and screaming across the yard. The Honda meets that need with a wide range of rear wheel speeds. The twin blades turns grass clippings practically into dust to organically feed the lawn.

Great service from Mowers Direct. You just can't beat competitive pricing, tax free, and fast two-day shipping. Will recommend Mowers Direct to family and friends...Five Stars across the board!!!

It's a great Lawn mower but back wheels wear out too fast. Make sure you get extra back wheels when you buy it.

Love Love Love This Mower
In the past I've had Toro self propelled, with Honda engines of course. (3) alway have a spare. They are not near as fast as the Honda. I cut about 3 times a week and I love to walk fast. The handle was difficult until I got the hang of it. love the power and fastness of this mower. I do however think it was a little expensive. If it last 10-12 years like the Toro's, I'll have another one.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations, Light Weight, Fast
Cons: Expensive, Handle Was A Little Difficult To Use
