  3 Questions
Q: Does it have a discharge chute rear or side capability is this a optional equipment
by Marty from Indiana on April 30, 2015

A: Marty - on the Honda HRX series mowers, if you remove the bagger from the rear of the mower, the discharge guard will swing down and and allow for grass clippings to be discharged out of the rear of the mower deck.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Does this mower have a pull cord in the event that the battery stops working?
by Jim from New Jersey on July 07, 2013

A: Jim - yes, all of the Honda HRX series mowers, including the HRX217HZA, have a recoil start (rope pull start) option on the top of the engine.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Good morning,

I see that the Honda HRX217HZA has a non-metal mowing deck (with a lifetime warranty). What material is it made out of and on an uneven surface will the deck flex? Thanks

by Floyd Sandlin from Washington on August 11, 2012

A: Floyd - the mower deck on the Honda HRX217HZA is made from "NEXITE", which is a polymer material that is very similar to what is used to make football helmets and car bumpers. The mower will not flex when mowing uneven surfaces.

Lifetime Honda Landscape Customer
This mower replaced my 20+ year old HRB215. What a difference in the maneuverability. You would never know this mower is about 95#.

The built-in bag/mulch feature is clever and beyond useful depending on your fertilizer schedule and weather conditions.

Electric start is a dream come true. No more worries about straining an aging back. A must for anyone with back issues or typically over 50.

The quad cut technology provides a cut that rivals my True-Cut reel mower. Since buying the... more

"MD is the only online retailer for my power equipment needs. Although this was my first, it will certainly not be my last experience with them. Their staff - Exceptional and real people, WITHOUT the attitude. They truly want to help you make the right decision. Shipping - Quite simply flawless. Fast and arrived without any issue. Communication - Excellent and appropriate - not over-using my email for spam level communication. Their Products - A full spectrum of power related equipment for any budget. If you can't find it at MD you probably don't want it. A delighted customer."

Jury Is Out:
This is my second Honda mower first one (HR215) is still going strong after 18 years, but with a minor issue in the differential. We decided to get a new one with all the new technology. It came in very quickly, unpacked it, oiled and gassed it, put the bag together no battery power. Started instantly with the rope. Next day, mowed the lawn with no issue, love the new blade design and mulch adjustment. (Battery charged in that hour and a half.) Week later, began the second mowing after... more

Worth Your Time And Money!
I’m a frequent online shopper, but was still hesitant ordering something this expensive from a company I never heard of. Anyway, looked through all their reviews and finally pulled the trigger on this Honda HRX217HZA. My purchase from Mowers Direct was perfect and cheaper than buying it locally.

The shipping was also super fast via FedEx. In regards to the mower, this thing is worth the cash and run/cuts like a dream!!! I researched this mower for two months and I don’t think anything... more

Wonderful Mower
This is the best mower I've ever owned. We've had a lot of rain so the grass was quite high when I finally got around to mowing it and this mower easily clipped it in 1 pass where as other mowers I've owned would have required 2 to 3 passes over the grass. It's expensive, but well worth it if it lasts 10 or more years.

Great Experience
I ordered a Honda HRX217HZA (21") 190cc Self-Propelled Electric Start Lawn Mower w/ Blade Brake Clutch from Mowers Direct.

The mower arrived three days later to my surprise. I expected at least a week for shipping. I opened the box, added oil and gas, and was mowing lawn in about 10 minutes. This mower preforms better than I expected. Thank you for the great service.

Best Experience Ever
Have always wanted a Honda Lawnmower, as I bought the Honda snow blower 5 years ago now. They make a great product with a great reputation. Also, the price at Mower Direct could not be beat anywhere else. The shipping was free and no taxes. A wonderful experience all around. You can't say that too often.

Old Man
I was concerned about the weight, but the larger wheels, and self-propelled power allowed this concern to be unfound.
Elect. start - not necessary, but really convenient (this is my 3rd Honda of this design in the last 18 years)
The "mulch/bag" system is extremely convenient. Servicing is a snap.

Could Not Have Been Easier!!!
The price for this mower is pretty much the same wherever you go. But I saved on shipping and I saved on those damn taxes! I ordered it on Monday and it was delivered on Tuesday. I didn't have to put up with obnoxious salesmen, did the research myself.
Pros: High Quality, Easy To Use, Features, Price

Great Mower, Little Pricy
Finally a mower that works in NW rain. Would definitely recommend although a little pricy. A little cheaper here than locally because of tax, but not much.
Pros: High Quality, Easy To Use, Durable, Reliable
Cons: Expensive, Heavy

Honda Mower
It is a fantastic mower and makes the lawn look great.

Only problem is that I am 5' tall and the handle bar is at my shoulder height. It is hard to operate at that height. I have lowered it to the bottom opening.
