  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.

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

Very Hard To Control Speed After Using Toro For Years
I must start by telling you I'm comparing this to a top of the line Toro with the "Personal Pace" system.

Then I purchased Honda after my Toro was stolen (after 8 years of service), and I've always liked Honda and it had a couple of features I liked.

The Honda motor is superb. The cut quality is excellent. The hydrostatic transmission seems good.

The worst part of this mower is the design of the blade clutch and transmission drive lever. On the Toro, you push lightly to... more

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

Mowing Almost An Acre, Up And Down Hill
I bought this mower for several reasons. First, I used this mower design when I was a teenager mowing lawns for clients who owned it (some 30 years ago). Ever since that time I wanted it, but I just couldn't afford this mower. Second, this is a strong mower, easy to use, friendly for teens, and great on uneven ground. Third and most important, this mower gets into tight spots, I mow in 28" - 32" strips of grass. I also mow up a hill that has the mower above my head as I mow... more

Hopeful
When my Honda HRX217HYA arrived the packaging was in pristine condition, however when I removed the mower from the box, filled it with the provided oil, and started it I was extremely happy. However, disappointment followed. The blades would not engage. Therefore, what to do. I contacted Mower's Direct and they told me to take it to my local authorized Honda service center because they are akin to a big box store once the product leaves their facility it's yours along with any issues which... more

"Mower's Direct sells a great line of products, however that is all they do. They sell. If there is an issue after the sale it is the buyer's responsibility to resolve the issue. I don't believe the issue I'm having with my Honda HRX217HYA is the result of anything Mowers Direct did."

Proven Value And Longevity
Unsurpassed quality and ease of use. The delivery was flawless and product is superior to those at Big Box stores. There is no comparison to the power of the self propelled operation and ability to fill bags with clippings and operate without breathing hard.

"I purchased a similar self-propelled Honda in 1982 - I mowed 3 acres of 4' weeds until 2006 and found this self propelled mower well worth the extra dollars and upgrades. I purchased "other Home Depot" mowers and was mad at myself for not buying the top line Honda. Yes, I could be a poster child for this mower but its longevity, ease of use, dependability is unsurpassed. It will fill a 50 lb bag of grass and make you jog alongside without fail."

Old Honda Mower Guy Meets New Mower
I had a 20 year old Honda HRM. I liked its handle design better than this new one. I find it a long reach to feather the speed when I need to slow down around trees etc. Maybe I haven't put my hands in the right place. It is hard to keep my fingers on the bar and reach with my thumb to the lower speed control lever.
Pros: Reliable, Durable, Fast

Wait A Minute, Not So Fast...
This is the third review I've posted on this issue, all under the same title if you want to read them all. After having to file a customer complaint with Honda USA for their initial refusal to cover the broken connecting rod on my 3 year old mower under their 5 year consumer warranty, a week went by and they reversed their decision. Great news! However, it would have been nice if someone would have notified me of the decision, I received no contact and again had to take my time to follow up... more
