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.

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.

Quiet Mower, Groomed Lawn
Purchased this mower in April 2015, used about 10 times now. Mower is a pleasure to use-- takes the work out of mowing. It's operable one-handed, most difficult thing with mowing is deciding what beverage to hold while doing it. Twin blade system does a great job of leaving a smooth lawn and very small clippings. I would definitely buy again.

Not User Friendly.
I replaced my 10 year old Honda lawnmower with this model HRX217VKA, but after using this lawnmower once I returned it to the place of purchase and replaced it with the Honda HRX217VYA.

With my 10 year old lawnmower and the HRX217VYA you could set the walking speed and without holding the lever in that position.
With the HRX217VKA you have to keep the lever pressed constantly.

The minute you let go the lawnmower stops. If you have this lawnmower set at 1/2 speed (setting # 5) it... more

Faster And Easier Mow
This is a big improvement over my old Toro 160 cc with 7 lb.ft torque. Quality is too much but I would expect that given the hefty price.

I think the main advantage of this Honda over competition is the base housing design and the dunks blade which allows the clipping to be cut to a smaller size and flow into the basket easily.

First Pull!
Heard the doorbell ring. Got the two-wheeler and wheeled the box to the garage, opened it, lifted out the mower, added the oil then gasoline. Set to use for mulching and pulled the cord. A half-hour from when it arrived it was mowing grass! And doing a great job! Thanks!

Honda Hrx217vka (21") 186cc Select Drive
Replaced a more than 20 year old Snapper, which was an excellent mower throughout its use. The Honda arrived on time, installed per instructions, started on first pull. So far I would rate as excellent per expectations. Not quite the high vacuum of the Snapper HI_Vac but still quite good, and a very smooth mower.

Quality Mower
The purchase was a breeze and the fact that there was no sales tax and free shipping, it was cheaper than purchasing local.
The mower arrived on the date promised and it took all of 10 minutes to unpack, extend the handle, fill with oil and gas and start cutting grass.

Other reviewers have mentioned the weight of the mower and I feel obliged to concur. My wife and I are 53 years old and typically she mows and I weed-eat, edge, and blow. The first time she used the mower, she complained of... more

Amazing Mower
I am 15 years old. I have my own small lawn care business. I have 12 lawns, and the mower is doing great. Today I mowed a wet and long lawn. It did amazing! It plowed right through with no problem. The dual blades works really well. I would highly recommend!

Best Mower I Have Ever Owned
Easy assembly, well built and starts on the first pull every time. I love the ability to change mulch/bag ratio. Engine is great on fuel. I have a 1/3 acre and it doesn't run out of gas.
