  • HRX217HMA - A great mower marred by the lack of one critical feature

    Aug 5, 2011 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Electric start, Powerful cutting, Hydrostatic drive, Clip Director (LOVE THIS!!)
    Cons: The lack of a side discharge mode & a bit difficult to adjust wheel height

    Summary: I purchased a HRX217HMA in May of 2010, so this is my 2nd summer of use.  I love all aspects of the design and operation save one - no side distribution discharge of clippings. You can do any combination of bagging/mulching (variable door), or ... read more

  • An Expensive Disappointment

    Aug 19, 2009 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Starts on the first pull. Runs smoothly.
    Cons: Discharge chute clogs within seconds unless grass very short and totally dry. Inadequate fuel supply.

    Summary: This is obviously a well built, but poorly designed mower. It's easy to start, should last a long time, but has too many flaws to make it enjoyable to own. I don't use the bagging attachment and leave the discharge chute open. Unfortunately, I can rarely ... read more

    Pros: Started the first time...effortless.
    Easy adjustments.
    Fast and smooth when working.
    Cons: Apparently not very sturdy. Broke the second time I used it.

  • Worst Rear Bag Design EVER

    Mar 25, 2009 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Starts and runs well.   Great at mulching grass into fine clippings.
    Cons: Super small bag.  Awkward to handle.   Spills a lot.

    Summary: The entire line of Honda rear-bagging lawn mowers needs to be redesigned before I'll consider buying, or recommending them.  At issue is the foolishly designed bag.  It is precicesly the same size as the 30 gallon paper yard waste bags my ... read more
