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.

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!!!
The mower was packed well and assembled easily. Put gas in the tank and added the oil, which was included, and adjusted the wheels. Started on the very first pull...just like advertised. I've been using it on mulch setting and left that bag in the garage. My yard has never looked better. I love the mower!!!
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, Easy To Start, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: Expensive

It's A Quiet Beast
Double blade make a fine mulch. Starts in one pull every time. Fuel efficient. Wish it had a clutch so I didn't have to restart after emptying the bag. Best mower I've owned so far. It's only been a few weeks so I'd like to review after a year.
Pros: Easy To Use, Reliable, Easy To Start, Quiet
Cons: Expensive, No clutch for blade disengagement, No hose connect to clean

Simply the best mower I have ever owned! The mulching ability is excellent and I have yet to see any clippings. The ability to mulch and bag in any combination is impressive!

This Mower Rocks!
Finally after years of buying cheap mowers I decided to go for a Honda. Mower arrived timely and well packaged and was easy to get ready for use. The hardest part was getting the clips to lock over the frame of the bag. The mower mulches and bags well and leaves lawn looking evenly cut. I like the Select drive controls on the handle to use the rear wheeled self propelled mower. You can set it how fast or slow you want it to go by the simply adjusting the dial. It starts on the first pull and... more

"The Representative was very professional. I told him I had ordered this mower from a competitor in Illinois and they had shafted me by telling me it was available when it was actually back ordered. I told him straight up I will buy this mower from you if you can guarantee it will ship tomorrow. The next morning I had my tracking # and the mower was on its way. Glad I chose Mowers direct - they don't play games."

Best Mower Hands Down
After a lifetime of buying cheap mowers, I splurged on the Honda. This thing is fantastic. Mowing is a snap and the dual blades vaporize my Bermuda and St. Augustine lawn clippings. So sorry I didn't buy a Honda many years ago.
Pros: High Quality, Easy To Start, I'd Buy It Again, Fast
Cons: Expensive

Worth Every Dollar
I buy "throwaway" tools when appropriate and quality when I need it to last. This Honda is in the quality category and I have every expectation it may be the last lawnmower I buy. I used a friends similar model over some rugged, previously uncut woods we were clearing - no problem despite hitting many sticks and brush stubs. My present yard is hilly and rutted, again no problem. Does a surgical cut over the toughest of conditions.
Pros: High Quality, Easy To Start, Durable, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Expensive
