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 Buying Experience
I recently needed a new mower, so I consulted Consumer Reports May 2015 issue for guidance. Their Best Value Self-Propelled mower was the Honda HRR216VKA. I went online and found Mowers Direct, placed my order with standard delivery and received my new mower in 3-4 days. The mower is awesome and the service was excellent. I could not be happier.

Trash
Bought this piece from the Home Depot in July 2012, and the anemic engine struggled to move it over a lawn I was easily able to push an old Murray non-self-propelled! This was the first cut, and I had to pull the old Murray back out to finish the job! In this price range, there were no mowers with stronger engines, so I kept it against my better judgement.

Flash forward almost 3 years, and the gear box decided to eat itself so the mower no longer self-propels. Back to Home Depot it went... more

Simply The Best
I have a small front and rear yard, but big enough to need a 21" mower. This mower does the trick effortlessly. I chose Honda because I have used their mowers in the past and countless small engines and you just can't go wrong with the brand.

The self propulsion works well so far. Assembly is so easy a small child could do the job. So far, I recommend this product for the do it yourself track home owner.

I Have A Very Happy Son In Law
My son-in-law, Mike, has been taking care of my lawn for years. Since this was to be both a birthday and a retirement present, my daughter when asked, replied "Mike loves your Honda lawn mower."

If you want to get him the ultimate gift, get him the same model Honda that you have. So I ordered the HRR2I6VKA (21") lawn mower.

Mike reported as soon as he assembled it, he pulled the starter cord just ONCE. The mower started and ran like a top. Needless to say, Mike is a happy... more

Nice, Very Nice
After buying crumby mowers from Lowe's and having to replace them about every 3 to 4 years, I spent the extra 100 and got a mower that'll last 8 to 10 years or more. Thanks Mowers Direct for making it possible. Next time I need a mower or weed eater I'm going to you guys first.

"Your staff is very helpful, even after I ordered the wrong mower. When I realized my error, I called Mowers Direct I spoke with a very helpful young lady and she got everything straightened out. I got the mower I wanted in 4 days, no problems at all, and I was mowing with it that afternoon. Thanks again Mowers Direct."

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

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

What A Treat
Bought this a couple weeks ago and immediately used it on a small "orchard" - first mowing of the season. Grass was 8-14 inches tall. I set blade height to 3" and mowed the whole area (2000 sq ft) without bogging down.

At one point I unknowingly got the starter cord caught under a sharp-edged piece of metal on the frame and in three pulls, shredded the cord. "Damn!" I thought, "there goes a half-hour to replace it". No! It was three perfectly... more
