Q: Does it have a discharge chute rear or side capability is this a optional equipment
by Marty from Indiana on April 30, 2015

A: Marty - on the Honda HRX series mowers, if you remove the bagger from the rear of the mower, the discharge guard will swing down and and allow for grass clippings to be discharged out of the rear of the mower deck.

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

Disappointed With Honda
The mower shipped very quickly. I open the box and it was very easy to set handle height and get set up. The engine started on second pull, however, the throttle linkage was messed up and revved up so I shut it down.

Took it to a Honda authorized center. They checked it out and said the engine blew when they started it so they gave me a new mower and took care of the blown engine with Honda.

First Mower, So Much Fun
Got my mower delivered in 1 day, set it up, filled it with oil and gas, and it fired up on the first pull. Very impressed. The blade and clutch controls are amazing, especially when needing more control of the mower when going downhill.

Attaching the bag is very easy, and the mulching control does a great job on throwing the clippings to the side and not on your path when walking behind.

One small thing, the blade control hits the handlebar and chips the paint on it. Perhaps putting a... more

Best Mower Yet
I have had several mowers over my lifetime, but this Honda is the best performer yet. I took it out of the box and one pull of the starter and it went. I really like the double blades, when mulching there is no grass showing on top, it chops it up really fine.

I have used it three times so far and it is excellent. Don't buy the cheap ones. The whole mower from the wheels to the handles are excellent quality, a rare thing these days. Keep making QUALITY Honda.

So Far, A Great Machine
Bought this from a local dealer yesterday after reading the review from this website. I have a Toro and Craftsman. I've had the Toro for many years, starts easy and produces a good cut and mulch, the Caftsman not so much and is on it's last leg. Needed repair parts for the drive and no longer available by Sears or apparently anyone else.

Can't find a bad thing to say about the Honda after 3+ hours of mowing. My grass wasn't that tall so I mowed both my neighbors lawns and used the 100%... more

Honda Hrx217hya
Cuts very nice, has the suction to pull grass up and cut evenly. Like the fact that it cuts close from both sides, allows me to trim in different directions, opposite rotation of string trimmer. Starts best of any mower I've owned, first pull most the time.

Quiet Honda engine a plus, you can hear what's going on around you. Ability to stop the blade while mower stays running is very nice. Self propel works great!
Pros: Reliable, High Quality, Quiet, Durable
Cons: Heavy

Not Worth All The Money.
I does not mulch as well as I hoped for the money. I read that it left no chopped up grass behind.. but it does. and it is very awkward to hold down two levers.

One is to engage the blades to spin and the other is a throttle.. Holding down both levers and steering is awkward. It is not a smooth push this lawnmower. For the money, I could have find a lawn mower that mulches just a good and is easier to maneuver.

Great Mower!
I usually buy used, but I was tired of things breaking down on me. So I splurged and bought this unit. It is a very nice mower and has a lot of speeds from snail slow or cheetah fast. 5 year warranty is great hope I never use it.

The Very Best Mower We Ever Owned!!!
This mower is a dream come true! We are in the construction business and use the mower more than a usual homeowner. We have tried several brands and none seem to do the job. As a matter of fact, we tried some commercial grade mowers but they just were not up to the job.

The Honda mower starts quickly, runs smooth, and cuts the grass like nothing we have ever seen before. I think the twin blades are the best thing going. It cuts the grass in such small pieces that the mower doesn't clog... more
