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.

Great Mower, Problems With Delivery
The mower is great! At 160cc it far out-performs my 190cc Toro. The self-propell control took a little getting used to, but now I find it better than what I've had in the past with more direct control over speed.

My only problem with the experience is that the mower must have been mishandled during shipping. Out of the box, one of the front wheels was bent at an odd angle, and the handle was misaligned. I was able to force the handle and wheel back into positions close to what they... more

Smart Drive Should Be Touchy Drive
This is my third Honda mower and my first one is still working at my daughter's home. I bought it in 1988. The second one runs , but front wheels are about to fall off due to rust and it keeps throwing the belt. This newest one starts fine, but is very difficult to maintain steady speed. Also the engine RPM is much too high. I cannot recommend a Honda mower to anyone anymore.

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.

Same On You Honda
I bought this mower August 2013, so I actually used it six months. Last month the rear wheels refused to go backward no matter what I did. I took it to the dealer I bought it from and explained the situation. They said it is still under warranty so they will take a look at it. When I asked if cleaning it every time hurts it, the person said I should not ever clean the mower because it causes problems. I realized I picked the wrong dealer. After going to the Honda web site and looking at... more

Side Grass Chute
I bought this more because it was a Honda, but for what paid for it to be a 3 in 1, I feel that it should have come with all compatible parts like the side grass chute. They really expect people to use this with out one. Your legs will be ate up by grass clippings and whatever else.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Reliable, Fast
Cons: Expensive, Should Have Come With The 3in1 Side Grass Chute, Should Have Come With The 3in1 Side Grass Chute

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.

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

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."
