  6 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: Is this mower front or rear wheel drive?
by Jim from California on April 22, 2016

A: Jim - the Honda HRR216 series mowers are rear wheel drive.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: If you want to discharge the grass, how does that work? Is there a side discharge?
by Brian from Florida on January 22, 2016

A: Brian - on the Honda HRR216 series mowers, the discharge function is through the rear of the mower deck. To discharge clippings to the rear, remove the grass bag and leave the Clip Director lever in the BAG position. The shutter door on the rear of the deck (where the bagger hooks on to the mower) stays slightly open, and the grass clippings are discharged out from there.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: What is the cost of the leaf shredder attachment
by Dan from Alabama on May 10, 2015

A: Dan - the current model HRR216 series Honda mowers (K9) have a re-designed mower deck that does not accommodate a leaf shredder attachment. If you have a 2013 or older Honda HRR216 mower (K1 thru K8 in your model number), then the leaf shredder attachment will fit up to your mower: leaf shredder
by Jose, Product Expert
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.

Awesome Mower
i have had this mower for over 2 years, the only problem I have is when I clean the bottom of grass, if I use a garden hose to clean, a week later the wheels lock up when the mower is pulled backwards, although after using it for a while they start to work normally.

What I have determined is when using the water hose to clean the grass off the bottom, that it has a light coat of rust on the wheel pulley a week after cleaning, if I don't use the water hose to clean the grass off the bottom,... more

It's Not Your Father's Honda!!!
After using my Lawn Boy for 17 years I hated to buy a mower. Lawn Boy is no longer like we had as it's a cheap Toro. This Honda had good reviews, so I bought one LATE last year and used it about 5 times. This spring after the 2nd mowing I came to realize that this mower basically sucks.

It pulls really hard to start which my wife can't manage. Usually 3-4 pulls to start. Runs in my opinion too damn slow. Hell, Honda, what are you saving it for? Let the damn thing sing. Cuts well with dual... more

Don't Need The $750 190cc, This 160 Has A Heart Of Gold
Originally was concerned that this mower would be under powered compared to the more expensive 190's, but its not. Starts every time on the first pull, and won't bog in heavy wet grass. Doesn't leave clumps of mulched grass behind.

Only downsides are she's a heavy weight ( 99 lbs) and the abruptness of the variable speed drive takes getting used to. Have had bad repercussions from cleaning our Toro with the water hose connections, so far haven't needed to clean this one. She is kinda hard... more

Good Mower But With Some Pro And Cons
This is a good mower, easy to run, simple in work, but needs some improvements:
1. Rear drive wheels make difficult to move back
2. Big opening in the bag does not allow to collect more, than half of the bag
3. The c.g. of the mower is close to driver and during of movement front part of mower is easy rise.
Pros: Easy To Use, Reliable, High Quality, Fast
Cons: Rear Wheel Drive Makes Difficult Moving Back, The Big Hole Of The Bag Does Not Allow To Collect More Than Half, The Cg Of Mower Is Close To Driver And Front Easy Rise During Of

Great Mower At A Fair Price
After much research and review reading I purchased this mower. I have used it on 1/4 acre several times over the last two months and couldn't be happier. It does all I ask of it and appears well built.

It bags and mulches very well, starts on the first pull, and leaves a clean even cut. It has plenty of HP and you can control the self propel from a crawl to a brisk walk.

With all the crap out there I was feeling no matter what I bought, with whatever name on it , it was a crap shoot. I... more

Great Mower, Confusing Warranty
I borrowed this exact mower from a friend for sometime until i saved enough in the budget to buy my own. good all around mower. It is well built, powerful motor, great twin blade cutting system, the self propelling is great when its needed, and it handles well in thick tall grass.

Only downside i really have is the $$$. Overall, I would give this mower a 4.5!

If mower direct would ever respond to my emails and calls about how the warranty works and how long it is for I would give it a... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Reliable, High Quality, Upholds Well In Thick Grass

Very Poor Perfomance
I bought this mower based upon the many great reviews. I do not share their enthusiasm. The mower will not mulch, bag or discharge. The mower keeps clogging to the point killing the engine, then dumps all of the grass clipping in one spot. Called Honda they said I need to mow more often. I have been mowing for 35 years. I know how to mow and when to mow. Called Honda again. They said to take the mower for a service to look at it. The dealer said nothing was wrong, but it had a lot of... more

Seems To Run Fine. No Engine Problems.
While cutting my yard for the third time with the new mower, the self propelled function stopped working. It is rear wheel driven. Upon examination the bolt holding the back left wheel was just about out and the wheel was about to fall off.

I tighten the bolt and it seems to work fine. I just did not expect a structural/mechanical problem that soon. But I am still very happy with the mower. Its starts easily every time. I like the double blade feature.

Great Buy!!
I love the features of this mower. I have not used the mower, snow is still on the ground in Rochester,NY. Honda mowers are the best, my last Honda mower lasted for 25 years...1990 to 2015. Will revisit after I use it

Not What I Expected From Honda
Luckily I don't have much to mow. It starts easy that's the good part. It has one speed and u better hang on it goes way way to fast - Its all u can do to keep up with it and I'm am 6'2"

Thus your thumbs start hurting trying to keep it under control at a reasonable speed with the thumb on/off engagement paddles. When the mower is running it is very hard to pull backwards the wheels for all intensive purposes don't roll backwards.
