  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

My Second Honda Hwx217
I have had one of these for 10+ years without any problems at all. With a new house and a very nice acre lawn plus being 70+ yrs old was considering a rider. Decided the exercise of walking would be nice so got another HRX so I can cut together with my wife. Now we be a tandem Honda talk of the neighbors. Being a retired mechanical engineer, I can attest to the fact the HRX217 being the best self-propelled on the market, a little pricy but you will be glad you own one. The new one arrived in... more

Didn't Start Out So Good But Now Things Are Cool (for Now)
Okay, this purchase didn't start out so good as about 3/4 through cutting my grass first time gas started leaking out of the air filter and the mower flooded out/stalled. I turned off the gas and figured the carburetor float got stuck. I tried it again after letting it cool off and after about 5 minutes it started pouring out gas again out of the filter. I bounced the mower around and it stopped leaking gas. I was able to finish my lawn and by that time not real happy with the situation. more
Pros: Easy To Use, Features, Quiet
Cons: Carburetor float stuck

The Best Push Mower On The Market!
I am using this mower to cut st augistine grass and this leaves a awsome cut every time and starts on the first pull. Also no need to shut it off as you can stop the blades and let the mower idle when you need to move or pick something up.
Pros: High Quality, Reliable, Durable, Easy to flip handle up to store, great reliability
Cons: You will wish you had this mower if you use another

Great Cut & Easy On A Tall Guy's Back
The reviews were spot on. The cut is notably more professional than previous machines that I have owned. The clippings are super fine.

One review on this site mentioned how comfortable it was for a tall person to use. The guy was 6'5" and I'm 6'3" and he was absolutely correct.

Never had a blade break before and it's such a great feature. Also built to last with real maintenance tips. None of this never change your oil nonsense.

The only problem was with the mulching... more

Great, But Miss The Butterfly Clutch Control
Received the mower promptly as promised. It started with the first pull as most Hondas do. The mower works as advertised and the selectable mulch/bagging feature is great. The mower cut is excellent.

The only drawback I have encountered is that it doesn't have the butterfly clutch control that was equipped on the Honda mower it replaced. The butterfly clutch control made it very easy to engage/disengage the clutch with minimal force exertion with your thumb. The bar clutch control requires... more

Not As Good As It Could Have Been
The cut is good, but the full throttle never stays in full position it seem to vibrate down from the full position. The mower handle is very long when it is set for my height 6'1". The long handle I'm guessing is necessary to enable bagging which I don't use. Honda needs to build a mower with a handle that is adjustable for length as well as height. Everyone doesn't bag its bad for landfills. The long handle makes the mower hard to use in tight trimming around flower beds etc.

Never, Ever Again Honda
What a complete disappointment and an expensive one at that. This is the second lawnmower I have purchased. First one was a Yard-Man 14 years ago and the B&S engine still runs great but unfortunately the transmission is kaput. So after reading tons of reviews and looking at the Honda's at HD, I decided to upgrade. What a mistake. Read the manual, watched all the videos on Honda's site and then carefully unboxed the mower.

Got to the point where I gassed it up and opened the fuel valve.... more
