  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

Bad Carburetors & Poor Customer Service.
I will not buy another Honda product. I purchased my Honda HRX2175HYA in March of 2015 used it for one season with no problem. This year I used it until July when I went on vacation for two weeks and it sat in the shed. When I came home, I started it and the throttle was surging up and down. So I call my Honda dealer (not worried because it has a Five year warranty) and explained the problem. He immediately told me it will need a new carburetor and that Honda will not cover it under warranty... more

Best Tall Person Mower Or Self Propelled Mower Period!
I've owned this mower for three years. At 6'5" it was the only mower I can actually adjust the handle at a comfortable height. The slightly less expensive mower won't go higher. I find the blade engagement and self propelled hydro attic system very easy to control the speed from snail pace to a fast walk. Most the time I don't use the speed adjustment at all. The lever on the handle allows full articulation of different speeds.

The bigger wheels also make a noticeable difference on... more

2nd Use Left Wheel Fell Off
I received the product in a timely manner. It was easy to get the mower set up and running. I was surprised at full throttle the engine did not seem that powerful and stalled on not so long grass. I used the mower to cut the lawn twice. On the second cutting the front wheel came off. I tried to put it back on but I couldn't get it on straight. I took it to a warranty service dealer and I am waiting on the outcome. My guess is they will say it is my fault. For $722 I thought I was buying a... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Easy To Store
Cons: Expensive, Unreliable, Low Quality, Front wheel fell off after using mower twice

Worthless Warranty
Bought this mower from this site. The mower worked great until the engine seized up. I had this mower for two seasons into the 5 year warranty. I changed the oils every spring and checked it periodically between uses. I know several people that have this mower and don't even check the oil. I took it into to get it looked at by an authorized service center. Honda's response was that it was run out of oil and will not stand behind the warranty. I know that the oil got low because the motor seized... more
Cons: Durability, Useless 5 year warranty

Float Needle Issue
Overall we were satisfied however after we filled up the mower with fuel and turned it on we saw that it was leaking fuel by the air filter..... went to a certified Honda dealer and they said the float needle was stuck which was causing the fuel leak. It ended up being an easy and free fix however it was upsetting due to the fact that it was a major purchase for us as first time homeowners.
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, Features, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Stuck float needle

Honda Hrx217hya Replaces 19 Year Old Hbr215 Harmony 5.0
Mowers Direct was fantastic!!! Jose C. is the real deal and deserves all the credit the site gives him. He is knowledgeable caring and honest. This is actually the mower he owns. So his recommendation is from the heart, or wallet.

After much research, this model seemed the best replacement. My old mower still runs and cuts grass though the transmission is gone, the tires are bald, one rear wheel bolt is broken and it takes 3 or 4 pulls to start now. So sadly it was time to bid my old... more

The Mower I Should Have Bought Years Ago
This is truly the mower I should have bought years ago. I have used it about 6 times now and it performs far better than any of my expectations. I was a little hesitant ordering a mower and having it shipped however I would definitely do it again.

Overall this mower runs great, unless its turned off and in the garage, then it just looks great!
Pros: High Quality, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations

Great Lawn Mower
I'm very happy in choosing this lawn mower. It has all the great features that I wanted and it's very easy to operate. I just hope that the chassis made of NeXite, (a composite material) will not break or split after a while. I like the 5 years warranty and I hope Honda will stand with that in case an issue arises with the lawn mower.

I had a very bad experience with a Toro lawn mower that I had bought previously that also had a 5 years warranty. The engine of the Toro lawn mower died... more
