  6 Questions
Q: Does $729 include tax and shipping?
by Gilbert Fernandez from Arizona on July 05, 2016

A: Gilbert,

The $729.99 price will be the out-the-door price for the mower. We do not charge for shipping and as long as you are outside Illinois, you will not be charged sales tax.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Another question: Storage space for the mower is limited. Does the handle fold over or somehow raise to the vertical position with ease? I cannot store it in its operational configuration.
by L N Engel from New Mexico on June 30, 2016

A: The handle is easy to adjust vertical or flat on the mower for easy storage.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Is the rear wheel drive belt driven? If so, how often does one need to replace it and how difficult is the job?
by L N Engel from New Mexico on June 30, 2016

A: This mower is belt driven and the belt will last many years before changing it.

by Jose, Product Expert
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.

Most Satisfied With My Honda Mower - Hrx217hya
After having basically the same mower for 15+ Years without issues, I decided to configure the same mower and this HRX217HYA mower is about 99% the same as my old one minor changes in bagging/mulching.

I ordered the mower on May19th, and it shipped the same day (unbelievable) and was at my place May 20th. Hard to believe. I took it out of the box, filled it with oil and gas and it started on first pull. It has performed perfect each time.

So happy with its quality, and the service was... more

Good If Only Mowing A Straight Line Otherwise Hard To Maneuver.
Since our Toro self pace mower had to be more pushed than self propelled and our lot has a partial hill I was looking for a mower that would enough power without me having to push it uphill. This Honda has the power to make it up the hill without me having to push and it works great if you mow in straight lines. However mowing around trees and flowerbeds can be challenging. The mower is heavy and can get away from you since the handle bar for cutting the grass has to be held down at all times... more

Good Mower
Love almost everything about this mower! It has great power, a large bag, is easy to use, and the blade adjustment is good.
Issues I don't like are minor... air filter falls off even after being clipped in properly. Biggest deal blade engagement comes unengaged easily. I am going to take to local dealer for fix.

Throttle
Great mower but only able to start with the throttle wide open, and when I go to tighten up the throttle cable it starts to choke off and dies as if no gas is being fed through. Checked the filter, and it's bone dry and nothing is in down in the carb as well as I can tell. Advice?

Awesome Power
I love my new Honda mower. Very easy set-up: attach handle, fill oil, fill gas and go. We have had heavy rains in Florida and this mower plowed through wet, high grass with ease. This is a powerful machine with a minimal learning curve. I like that you can release the handles to stop mowing without shutting down the engine -- great for moving things out of the way.

It's a little bit heavier than my previous Honda, so mowing around trees and other items took a couple of tries before I got... more

Nice Powerful Machine That Mows Very Well.
Received mower FAST. Easy assembly, clear instructions, easy to use. Powerful mower that makes easy work out of thick, rather wet grass. It cuts cleanly, mulches and bags well, and doesn't bog down in heavy grass. Superb features on a very well made machine. I am very happy with it.

Love The New Honda
Bought this Honda to replace a 1990 Honda. It was delivered 3 days after placing the order and after filling it with oil and gas it started on the first pull. That is what Honda makes, great lawn mowers. I'm hoping this one will last as long as my last one.

Great Mower!
I bought this mower about 2 months ago now. It works great just takes some getting used to. For instance, when going around corners you have to slow down and ease up, it takes getting used to and when my yard is as small as it is, I may have bought too much mower for my yard. Great mower and well worth the money!

Great Mower
Shipped fast. Opened box, poured in oil and gas, set handle, put catcher together, pulled ONCE, it started, and I was mowing. Nothing beats a Honda and Mowers Direct.

I have run an HR 216 commercial mower for 19 years! I hope this one lasts as long. The only thing I noticed that the new mower doesn't pick up leaves as well as the old one.
