  3 Questions
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: I am trying to decide between a Honda with electric start, and a Honda with both the blade stop and electric start. If I only get the electric start and have lots of start/stops will I wear that part out if I have 10 or more start/stops each time I mow? If that is not a problem, is there still an advantage to having the blade stop and keeping the mower running? Thanks!
by Dan Baker from Washington on March 20, 2016

A: Dan - if you anticipate starting and stopping the engine as many as 10 times each time you mow, then I would definitely recommend the HRX217HZA model with the blade stop feature. You will increase the lift expectancy of the on-board battery and the starter significantly by going with the blade stop model and not making all those starts and stops on your engine each time you mow.
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.

Honda Awesomeness
I really love this mower. It's pretty easy to use and cuts very well. I really like the deck of the mower and it feels like it's going to last for many years. I have no issues but have only used it twice. I'm really impressed with the cut of the grass, and I have seen other reviews about this mower not mulching very well and leaving lines in the lawn. I did not experience that issue as I mowed my back yard. It mulched/discharged very well and did not leave clumps of grass I was cutting an inch... more

I'm Having Problems
The lawn mower works fine sometimes. Other times it burns oil and stalls out and then just won't start. I'm not doing anything differently from one use to the next. I wanted a consistently dependable lawn mower.

Honda Mower
So far I've used this mower twice since I received it. Had to get used to the self propelled controls. Not a big issue. This has plenty of power. Cuts very well and very even. Would definitely recommend this mower.

Best Ever!
This mower is the best we've had! We were always a Toro family but the last one we had was somewhat unreliable so we decided to give Honda a try and are very pleased with the way it handles and the large grass bag. It comes off and goes on very easily and quickly. We made a great decision!
Pros: Easy To Use, Features, Exceeded Expectations, Quiet

Now I know what I have been missing. There is absolutely no comparison to a Honda lawnmower. Quiet, smooth, cuts the tallest grass. Well worth the money.

Great Mower Overall
Having the key start is a nice convenience. A little heavy when turning around and pull back when you are trying to get into a tight spot that is too much for a weed wacker.

The personal pace works well as does the bag/mulch selector. This is my 2nd Honda (1st one was a push mower) and I hope this one lasts forever. Don't want to have to buy another ever again.

Great Lawnmower.......very Efficient And Easy To Use!
The lawn mower looked awesome when I got it out of the box, and worked very well. So far, I have used it three times - twice to mow and once to clean up the yard, and it works great. It is so easy that even my mom, who is 70 years old, could use it.

Very easy to start, and as I said before, very efficient. The best mower that I ever had. I went for Honda because of top quality, and I am not disappointed at all, and if you get this mower, neither will you. Good luck!
