Q: What does 4-in-one stand for?

by Jacob from Colorado on August 05, 2013

A: Jacob - a 4-in1- mower has the capability to bag, mulch or discharge grass clippings, as well as shred leaves in the fall if you require this functionality. The leaf shredding attachment is not included and would have to purchased separately: leaf shredder
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: I'm trying to decide on self propelled or not. Will this mower let you push without using the transmission? In other words when I get to the end of a row can I turn around at my own pace or do I have to have the wheels engaged? Also, what about pushing it into the garage for storage, would it have to be running?
by Tim from Arkansas on March 08, 2013

A: Tim - the Honda HRR216VKA does allow you to disengage the drive system and simply push the mower if you choose to. You would release the Smart Drive control on the top of the handle to disengage the drive. You can then push the mower around. This is actually recommend when mowing around trees and other obstacles
for better directional control.

Honda Mowers, Exceptional Product.
This is my 2nd Honda mower. I wore the first one out and this is an identical replacement.

The best feature of Honda is "easy starting". After a winter shut down, I always start with two pulls, sometimes with one.

Briggs and Stratton may be the largest small engine manufacturer in the world but I have bought my last Briggs and Stratton engine. They start OK when cold but when you shut them down, a restart is almost impossible. They should send their engineers to Honda to... more
Pros: Features, Reliable, I'd Buy It Again

Self Propelled Has Never Worked Right From Day One...
I bought the lawn mower 3 years ago at (HD) and the first one I took back and it took an act of god for them to replace a 2 week old mower but they did. The reason I took it back was the self propelled part of the mower did not work. A year later same thing.. This time I put the mower in the shop and paid for it my self seeing how Honda would NOT stand behind there product. Now the 3rd year same thing self propelled system not working again. I take very good care of this lawn mower and to pay... more

A Lemon Product
I have been using Honda mowers for 30 years. However this particular model is nothing but a junk. First and foremost, it does not start. Got serviced twice in two months time this year at the Honda authorized dealer , but it does not start, period.

Shame on you, Honda people. You better re-vamp this utterly unreliable inferior but expensive model.
Pros: Light Weight
Cons: Low Quality, Difficult To Use, Unreliable

Dont Buy This Mower To Use On Hills.
It is a tank! Very hard to maneuver. The rear wheels spin on hills and you have to supply most of the power. I wish I had my 15 yr. old Lawn Boy back again.
Pros: Quiet, Durable, Easy To Store
Cons: Difficult To Use, Heavy

Worst Mower Ever!
Purchased this mower almost 3 years ago, SEP 2010. I have spent over $200 in repairs, which Honda says is basic maintenance, not covered under warranty. This does not include the new transmission that was put on it. Fortunately, that was under warranty. Problem is, the rear wheels lock up sporadically when I attempt to pull it backwards to turn around. Took it to a Honda licensed repair shop numerous times. Last time it was there, the owner said he did exactly what Honda Tech support told... more

Herky Jerky
Who ever designed the drive system with the paddles has obviously never mowed on anything but a golf course. On a lawn with any kinds of roughness to it it is impossible to hold the drive paddles in a constant place. As the mower handle moves around so does your dive speed! You end up playing a game of getting jerked forward or running into the mower handle as the mower changes its speed. Easier to use as a push mower.

Secondly the two small slots for the top pins that hold the catcher... more

Too Many Pulls
Haven't had it a summer yet so hard to rate quality, etc. It has a lot of plastic, so I'm a little concerned about the long haul.. but maybe I shouldn't squawk about expectations and stick to the facts. This has "auto-choke", which might be a good thing, but too me, all it means is that I have to pull at least four times to get it started. That is annoying when the pulls are hard and you are used to a machine that starts on first pull.
Pros: Light Weight, Even Cut
Cons: Expensive

Limited Versatility
This is a quality-built mower with a number of nice features, especially the engine. But it is best used on a relatively simple (in terms of dimensions and topography) lawn where it excels in cut and ease of use. However, the weight and use of smallish wheels on all four corners make it difficult to use as a trim mower or to maneuver it tight situations. Also, wet or dry, the mower can leave a trail of grass clippings along the wheel tracks.
Pros: Quiet, Durable, High Quality, Easy To Store
Cons: Expensive, Heavy, Difficult To Use, Hard To Maneuver

Quality Mower
I decided to purchase a self-propelled mower as I am getting older. Read a lot of reviews and felt this one fit the bill. I am very satisfied. It has started easily and speed is easily controlled. Since it is a quality, heavy mower, it is a little difficult to pull back at times. However, I would recommend it.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Durable, High Quality
Cons: Heavy, Expensive

"Good experience, although I live in the country and a smaller truck would have been better. Seeing a 48 ft. trailer coming on narrow, 90* turn roads, is something. Driver probably wondered?"

Started On First Pull.
Had my 11 year old assemble it when it arrived. It started on first pull and continues to start on the first pull. Gotta love a Honda.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet
