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
Pros: Quiet, Features
Cons: Expensive, Low Quality, Unreliable

Honda Hrx217
The mower showed up right on time in a very sturdy box. I opened the box and much to my surprise, no assembly required. My girlfriend helped me lift it out of the box so its not that heavy. I placed the bag on the mower and poured the provided oil in the engine (don't use it all, it's more than you need). I pulled the start cord cycling the engine several rotations to circulate the oil. Filled the mower up with gas... Squeezed the run handle and gave it a pull... This Honda mower was running... more

Completely Satisfied
Absolutely no buyers remorse. Completely satisfied. The only potential issue would be the amount of energy required to manually start the machine. As an average build man, it takes a lot of energy to pull start the motor and usually takes me two pull. My petite wife cannot start it. Once it’s started, it’s wonderful. Love it.
Pros: High Quality, Exceeded Expectations, Durable, Light Weight
Cons: Difficult to Start

Best Mower Ever
Price was a little more than I expected to pay, but my goodness this is the easiest mower I have ever used. Starts first time, super quiet, and very clean cut. Also, it cut tall grass with ease. It take SAE 10w30, but I use synthetic mobile one 10w30. I am really confident this thing will last 15 plus years. It's a bit on the heavy side, but it feels light as a feather when using. I'm pretty sure this is the most expensive push mower in my subdivision... It cost to be the boss - so boss up.
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, Reliable, Quiet
Cons: Expensive, None, Heavy

Hardly Anything Is Perfect
When string is pulled, it starts. The mowers' wheels are not made of rubber which makes for a more bumpy ride. If the grass is moist, the clippings adhere to the inside walls. After mowing, the mower needs to be turned on side for hosing. The variable speed dial can move on its own, causing the mower to slow down.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Start, Fast, Easy To Store
Cons: Expensive, Heavy

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
