Q: Who fixes the mower while on warranty?
by Chantel from Nebraska on April 26, 2016

A: Chantel - the Honda warranty is a nationwide warranty, so you can take the mower to any Honda authorized service center in your area should warranty repairs ever be required. We have a link at the bottom of our web site for "service centers" if you want to find the closest Honda authorized service center in your area.
by Jose, Product Expert
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.
by Jose, Product Expert
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

Power Drive Problem
I had two Honda mowers with power drives. I wish I could say mine was 20 years old or still working, both units power drives have failed in 10 Years. The dealers service department has not seen that the power drive on units being a issue. When I purchased the second unit thought that perhaps the first unit was something not common with Honda. However, since it has happened on the second unit I'm not so sure if it is that uncommon for Honda lawn mowers. Once just a fluke but twice!!! I have... more

Great Buy
First off, it came in the box with free shipping and only took three working days to get to me. That's awesome. Also, only took about ten minutes to put together and requires no tools.

About the mower... This is by far the best mower I've ever had and it's well worth the money. It mulches the grass very finely and I really like the rear discharge with the guard. This Honda doesn't quite pick up leaves like some of the review said it would but after a few mows the leaves will disappear (from... more

It Does The Job
My normal mowing time is cut in half - due mostly to the powerful engine (with the double blade!) and the fact that I don't have to shut the mower off when emptying the bag. The multiple speeds are great, the bag empties quite quickly and easily. It's heavy, yet stable and easy to push when out of gear. I mowed my elderly parents lawn the other day (they had let it get about 10 inches high).

I set the blade height to 2 and 1/2 and it sailed thru it. I then set the blade to my usual 1 and... more

Well Worth It
Needed to upgrade to the larger engine due to hills in the yard. Have had Honda mowers for past 29 years. Prefer the more commercial quality of the HRX. Especially the Self propelled engage mechanism. Worth the extra money for the higher quality.

Great Lawnmower
I owned a Honda Masters for the last 18 years until the transmission starting slipping. Decided to buy a new one. The HRX 217 has impressed me in several ways. First of all, it is very quiet.

Second of all, the new plastic deck is so much lighter it's like driving a sports car.

Thirdly and most importantly is the way it mulches grass. My old one did a good job but this one turns it into tiny confetti.

And lastly, the self propulsion is very smooth and easy to adjust. I definitely... more

"Never dreamed of buying a lawnmower online. The price was the same as Home Depot, and both offered free shipping, but by buying it online I saved the sales tax. The shipping was very quick and it came unscathed in the factory Honda box. I definitely recommend Mowers Direct."

Happy So Far
I ordered the mower online one morning before going to work and the mower was delivered the next afternoon. That was fantastic as I live over 200 miles from Mowers Direct. Box was undamaged. No problem unboxing and setting it up to mow.

Added the oil that was supplied, put in the gas and it started on the first pull. The next day I mowed my yard and it cut beautifully. It mulches very well.There was a little learning curve in the operation but within 10 min. I was mowing like I owned the... more

Happy Mower
I researched mowers on the Mowers Direct site and then made the decision to purchase a Honda because of the lever to bag/mulch where no plug is needed and then the blade engage/disengage was another differentiation for this purchase.

I have used the mower 3 times now and extremely happy with the consistent cut, how full the bag gets before having to empty and finally the speed at which the self propelled can run this mower.

So Far, So Good
Set up easily out of the box. Started on 2nd pull and has worked well for three cuttings so far. Easy to use and seems well built. I keep forgetting to open the fuel shut off when I start it so it quits in a few seconds and I have to remember what I forgot to do. Otherwise it seems to be a typical Honda product.

Brilliant lawnmower, worth the money. Think about how much money your wife spends on her hair cuts, and those only last 6 - 8 weeks. This is a hair cut for your lawn that will last you the next 25 years. Spend the extra and take mowing your yard from a chore to a... well, still a chore, but at least you will really like the lawnmower.
