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.

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.

Commercial
I mow 6 to 7 lawns daily and have always used the HRR series mowers, they are not made for commercial work and after 3 years they have pretty much reached their limit. Last year I decided to try the HRX series mowers with the idea of less grass sticking to the deck and so less rust, plus the rear grass port is larger so less clogging in wet conditions.

I am well pleased with this mower. It has the 190cc engine versus the 160cc and maintenance under the deck is a lot less involved. It also... more

Leaking Gas. No Return Accepted.
After I received the lawn mower, I added gas and test it. Immediately the gas leaked out. The gas tank was empty in about 2 minutes. All gas I added into the gas tank was on the floor of my garage. I call the customer service of Mowers Direct to ask for returning the defective product.

They said they wont accept the return because "Engine powered equipment cannot be returned once it has been gassed or oiled due to federal shipping regulations". But that is not true. UPS people... more

Siyuan,
We are sorry to hear of the issue with your mower, but in this case we stand by our return policy posted on our website. We tried to provide a local servicing dealer during your phone call, but you would not accept that information from us. In this case, you will have to get a local servicing dealer involved. We can still provide that information if you would like.

Great Mower!
Pushed a button on Friday night and mower in driveway Tuesday morning! Easy set up, plenty of power and speed. Pulverizes grass and leaves, reducing stops when bagging. Cheaper and better than Home Depot.

I've only used the mower twice, but so far it's doing very well. I received the mower in just a few days and it was very simple to attach the handle, put in the oil and gas and go. Great service, Great product.

Great Mower
I had a craftsman 22" that was 17 years old... this replacement was great-- if you have a larger lawn, you may need to empty the clippings bag often.

But the mower with the brake clutch will save you having to restart your mower often... or need to rig your handle to keep it running while you empty.

Otherwise, it's a great mower so far-- used it about 5 times now. The speed selector will rotate by itself some while you're mowing, so keep an eye on it and adjust as needed.

Excellent Quality Mower
The new Honda mower is everything and more than I expected. In the spring when the grass contains a lot of moisture, the Honda bags grass clippings with ease instead of clogging the chute like my previous mowers. Variable speed control works like a charm. Adjustable to the speed which you are comfortable. One pull to start every time. Composite deck doesn't allow clippings to accumulate under the deck. If you examine the cut grass blades, the Honda cuts the top instead of tearing them.

Very Pleased With Purchase
I've used the mower twice with the bagger. Performs well. The price, no tax, free shipping all made it an easy choice. I was a little concerned about ordering online but would do it again.

So Far, So Good
First of all, I would like to say that Mowers Direct is a great business to deal with. They answered all of my questions quickly, and delivered the mower very fast.

Out of the box, everything went really well. I used the mower five times since receiving it. Works great and runs great. I would recommend this mower and Mowers Direct to anyone looking for a mower. Thanks for everything.

Good Mower
This Honda works well, has plenty of power with the 190 cc engine. Also, the self propell feature is strong compared to my old mower. I would recommend this mower a friend. Does not have a side discharge if you were needing that option, but with the extra power it may not be needed.
