  • Mow your lawn quietly with a teaspoon of gas!

    Apr 16, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Sips gas, quiet operation, easy starting, oil pump
    Cons: Price

    Summary: All my life I've used cheap lawn mowers from department stores. My parents always used them like they were small Bush Hogs and we tended to need new ones every two or three years. I decided that I wanted a quality mower that would ... read more

  • Not worth the money

    Oct 23, 2010 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Pro:  Nice looking, quiet.  Easy to start.
    Cons: Overpriced, unreliable. 

    Summary: I will just say upfront that while Honda makes great generators, you are paying way too much for a below average mower.  I originally bought the single speed model, but it was excrutiatingly slow.  The three speed model was better, ... read more

  • Avoid purchasing - a Honda not up to snuff

    May 11, 2010 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Was shiny when new.
    Cons: Transmission failures (2), weak motor, poor grass clipping guards.
    Home Cheap-O "knock off" quality

    Summary: I purchased this mower from Home Depot in June of 2007 for $439. Initially, I was impressed - the cut was good, and the mower ran great. My only gripe was that the area above the transmission would gather up grass clippings by the pound. There is no ... read more

  • HONDA HARMONY II HRT2162TDA HD

    Mar 21, 2009 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Started out a great mower, clean cut, easy start, 3 speeds, easy pull back.
    Cons: Now, too hard for wife to use. Tranny gone and wheels lock.

    Summary: I bought this at Home Depot because my brother-in-law had one and liked it and I trusted the HONDA name. Got it in the fall of 2003. It was a great mower for about 4 years, but in 2007 it became hard to start, tune up did not help really. Then the rear ... read more

  • Piece of crap and the gas tank leaks too!!!

    Aug 28, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: none
    Cons: lousy self propelled transmission, poor cable quality, and it may light your fire too!!

    Summary: Be very careful with this model --- I found out there was a recall on this piece of crap for a leaking gas tank. I called Honda and told them my same model mower has a leaking gas tank and they told me mine does not fall within the range of those serial ... read more

  • Reliable, fuel efficient, golf-course finish

    Dec 12, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Estate-quality cutting. Mulches like a goat. Bulletproof reputation.
    Cons: Heavy and expensive.

    Summary: UPDATE: 2008.  After 2 hard summers, nothing has changed.  I will note that the QuadraCut blades are pretty hideously expensive, but I'll never go back.  I love them as much as my Mach 3 razor.  I've been less than diligent about ... read more

  • This mower does not live up to the Honda name

    Jul 10, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy starting (when it starts), excellent blade system, quiet, efficient operation, quality fit and finish.
    Cons: Too finicky and too refined for the dirty, dusty work required of it.

    Summary: Swayed by more than a decade of brand loyalty as the result of several happy ownership experiences with Honda cars, I walked into the Home Depot two years ago and bought a new Honda Harmony II lawn mower. It wasn't cheap (about $400.00, out the door), ... read more

  • Honda Harmony II HRT2162TDA UPDATE 2010

    Jun 11, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy To Start, Runs Great, Quiet, Bags & Discharges Well
    Cons: Transmition Failure, Carb Failure

    Summary: These mowers were made back in 2001-2003 and they were the brand new thing! Many people wanted them and did not hesitate in buying one. Honda has always been known for producing quiet running engines. So how could you go wrong with a quiet engine on a ... read more

  • Another great one by Honda

    May 27, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Dependable long lasting Honda engine.
    Cons: Single speed drive.

    Summary: Well I'll start by telling how I ended up with this mower to begin with. I had a Honda HT3813 lawn tractor. It was a great mower but after 18+ years it was wearing out. It was used by my dad to mow his 3+ acres for the first 15 years. I had it the ... read more

  • Honda Mower as Reliable/Trouble Free as a Honda Car

    Apr 27, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Reliable, easy to use, durable, engine, dealer support
    Cons: bagging kit, small oil leak, expensive compared to others

    Summary: The Honda Harmony II HRS216SDA is the best mower I have owned as compared to Toro and Craftsman name brands. This mower is better suited for single family home residential applications and not commercial use since it is not on the upper end of ... read more

  • Have some harmony in your life. Buy this lawn mower.

    Apr 20, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Honda quality, ease of use
    Cons: It's a tad pricey

    Summary: During the summer of 2004, shortly after purchasing our first house, I discovered a problem. Apparently, I didn't read the fine print on the mortgage papers, but lawn mowing was not included in my astronomically high house payment, and sadly, the grass ... read more

  • Automaker cuts grass!

    Jan 27, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: quiet, ease of use, fine mulching
    Cons: price, size of bag

    Summary: Honda has been known for years as a maker of fine engines. This tradition carries over to how they make their lawnmowers. You can get the mower for around $349.99 and it is worth every penny. Now this is slightly more expensive than some of the other ... read more

  • Piece of CRAP!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sep 17, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: NONE!
    Cons: Transmission, next-to-impossible pull-start, can't pull it backward. Nightmare.

    Summary: I have to echo this reviewer's review to the LETTER: "I've been unhappy w/ my Honda mower since I bought it new at Home Depot. It has always been difficult to start, requiring lots of pulls and waiting time. Also, the self-propelled function started ... read more

  • Disappointing Transmission

    Aug 2, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Honda quality, cut, starting, ease of operation, mulching
    Cons: transmission, cheap plastic levers, difficult to find authorized repair

    Summary: Overall this has been a really good mower for me. I bought it about 4 years ago and have not had any trouble until last summer. The forward drive is fine in all 3 speeds, but when trying to pull backward, the back wheels lock up. Only after I pull it ... read more

  • This is how a lawn mower should perform.

    Jul 29, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Mulches like crazy, less expensive than the HRX, quiet, moves at a comfortable pace.
    Cons: Consumer reports gave a similar model a bad rating.

    Summary: This summer my old Toro mower quit. It had an old Tecumseh engine that has been nothing, but problems. I searched everywhere for a new mower, Home Depot, Lows, and my local lawn mower shops. I read consumer reports, the websites of lawn mower ... read more

  • In harmony with the grass, but not with grass mowing

    Jun 29, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Maybe - longevity, component quality, lower pollution?
    Cons: Price, lawn mowing and bagging performance, underpowered engine stalls

    Summary: Let me open up this review with a tasteless joke: When Honda decided to name this lawnmower series Harmony, they probably meant that it is in harmony with nature and the grass. Why? Because it is definitely more friendly to the grass than to the owner ... read more

  • Honda Makes a Great Mower!

    May 22, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Powerful yet quiet motor, large bag, dual-blade cutting system, easy to start
    Cons: Expensive.

    Summary: My Lawnmower history: 1970's-1990: Lawn-Boy side bagger. A large, green 2-cycle monster with a 120db roar. Toxic fumes and brute force are all I remember about this mower. 1990's-2005: A Toro electric mower. Small, light, easy to handle. Tiny ... read more

  • Best mower for the buck!

    Feb 3, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Honda Engine. 21" deck. Quadracut. Opt. rear bag. Mulcher.
    Cons: Handle too short for tall people. 21" deck max. 1 speed.

    Summary: Like many others, I grew up thinking the Briggs & Stratton was the GREAT mower engine. The truth is, no matter what Mom said, I was always working on those pieces of junk! Air filters, carbs, pull cords, oh ya, we've all been there. Enter Honda. I'm no ... read more

    Oct 5, 2004 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Speed, flexibility, neatness, weight, starting ease, handle and controls, mulching and cutting ability.
    Cons: Let go of the handle and the engine shuts off, not just the blade.

    Summary: This particular self propelled 5 horsepower Honda Harmony II lawn mower side discharges, bags, mulches and even can discharge grass out the back! VERY flexible! It has three speeds: fast walk; moderate walk; slow walk. Fast walk is good for large spaces, ... read more

    Aug 25, 2003 by
