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.

I Expected More
I purchased this mower a little less than two years ago due to its rating by Mowers Direct, numerous positive reviews and its expected quality being a Honda product. I always use top quality fuel with fuel stabilizer but when I went to crank it up this season the mower would not keep a stable idle and would not fully throttle up. I checked the air filter, spark plug and the gas was clean. I contacted Jose who confirmed that the mower had a 5 year warranty. I brought the mower to a local... more

Great Mower, Wonderful Transaction!!
This was the second Honda mower we have purchased. The other one lasted about 8 years and instead of getting that one fixed, we decided to purchase a new one. My husband loves this mower and it was worth the extra money to get the 217 model. Buying from Mowers Direct was a wonderful experience. We ordered on Wednesday and it was delivered to us in Florida on Friday . I had called our local Honda dealer and the price with taxes would have been almost $300 more. Would definitely recommend.
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again

Solid Mower
After unfolding handle, adding the provided oil & my gas, started right up. I mow 1 acre of sloped yard in a neighborhood. Lotta trees & such. Takes anywhere from 2 - 3 hrs, depending on heat & humidity (I'm 63 & require a few more rest stops in the summer).

Mower ran like a champ. Easy to figure out controls. On flat section, you can really get it moving. At least my wife, who was watching, was entertained. Used it 2x now & just changed the oil & cleaned it. Gonna... more

Some Reservations
Mulches great, but the speed control slips back and even the slowest is fast. It was said to really help going up hills- I don't feel the pull when going up hills, so with the too fast pace and control slipping back and lack of help going up hills my cheap self propelled mower is better bang for the buck at half the cost.
Pros: Easy To Start, Mulches great
Cons: Expensive, Heavy, Speed control speed and control slipping back to slowest speed

Steven,
I'm sorry you are disappointed in the performance of your mower. It sounds like it isn't operating properly- would you please give the folks at Honda Power Equipment Tech Support at (770) 497-6400 and see if they have any tips for improving your mower's performance?

Please also have the serial number of your unit handy when you call, in case they ask for it.

Super Mower
The mower starts on one pull every time, the transmission feature that drives the mower forward works flawlessly so far. I've used it for about 4 months, or 20+ times and it mows great.

I would have one suggestion, quickly during the first mowing a wheel fell off and since then a couple of screws fell off, so the quality control during assembly is lacking. And the mower is not quiet so you must wear ear protection. But that mower so far runs great !!
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, Easy To Start, Reliable
Cons: wheel and some screws have fallen off so assembly was not good.

An Exceptional Mower To Use
For decades, I've used another brand of mower so this is the first Honda mower that I've ever used. It's a sweet ride for three main reasons. First, the paddle to control mower speed is convenient and easy to use even in the middle of mowing. Second, the mower does a great job of creating a suction under the blade which means the mulching is exceptionally done. And lastly, the mower is quieter than I expected, making my mowing experience more enjoyable!
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, Exceeded Expectations, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Awkward oil fill location

Very Good, With One Exception
When I opened the box, I was impressed by the quality of materials and construction. Everything appeared to be made to close tolerances.

I put in oil and gas, and it started on the first pull. That was impressive. Adjusting the wheel height was easy.

The assembly of the bag and frame should have been straightforward, but the gap between the top of the mower deck and the top of the bag made it seem like something was wrong. I looked at HRX217's online and saw that the gap was normal.

Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, Quiet, Fast
Cons: Spews dirt and clippings
