Great Mower Becomes Even Better With Side Discharge Chute
I purchased this mower for use on Idaho irrigated lawns-- mostly Kentucky Bluegrass. I was disappointed at first while mulching when I could only go a few feet and then would have to lift the deck up in order to let it blow out the grass that would get stuck and ultimately cause the engine to kill. When I saw the small size of the clippings that were coming out of the mower, I decided to try the side discharge chute. That has made all the difference! With the side discharge chute, I have... more

Honda Commercial Mower A+
I bought this mower to replace a 21 year hold Honda, the first model with the Hydrostatic transmission (the top of the line model in 1991). That mower still started on the first pull every time, but several parts (wheels, suspension, bag, etc.) were in need of replacement. This one feels sturdier and I'm confident it will last 20 years. Yes, it's pricey, but if you factor in the reliability, durability, and high quality feel, it is worth it. I briefly considered the top of the line consumer... more

The Backbone To My Business
This mower is the real deal. It's powerful and can climb hilly terrain like nothing. The mower is very heavy so if you're not paying attention you will be taken for a ride. The suction cleans lawns when I bag. The final results are professional and clean. You will notice the difference between a $1200 mower and a residential mower for $400. This is the real deal.

Solid And Quiet
Assembly:

The Honda HRC216K3HXA mower was delivered flawlessly by freight to my garage in the original packed-by-Honda box. The mower comes mostly assembled. As I recall the extra handlebar support needed to be bolted on, the grass bag assembled, spark plug cap put on, oil and gas added and it was ready to go. The instructions are good enough to minimize thinking too much.

Use:
Pros:
1. Started easily.
2. Amazingly quiet, I remember wondering if it was really running.
3. Solid as... more

Great Mower
I just got it and cannot speak for how it will last in the long run, but it is made like a brick c**p house. It runs great and starts easy.

It mulches the leaves so that you can mow and rake at the same time. Great mower!!

Lawn Service
As a start-up business I owned the top of the line residential Honda mower purchased from a big box store. As the number of lawns increased I realized the need for a commercial mower. Mowers Direct offered the best price. Trusting my experience with Honda I ordered another Honda.

I've no doubt that this mower will serve me well but, I was disappointed in several ways. The mower has a "plastic insert" in the rear eject for mulching. The residential mower did not require this and had... more

Top Of The Line
After receiving my mower July 17 today was my first chance I had to use it. I had assembled it and filled it with oil and gas. I read the starting instructions and pulled and pulled. It would not start. I reread the instructions. I pulled and pulled. It still would not start. As I was checking the fuel shut off again I noticed the spark plug wire was not connected to the plug. I guessed they send them this way for safty reasons???????

Anyway it fired up in a third of a pull and I was... more

My New Honda
Best lawn mower I've ever owned. The mower mulches so well that I don't know if I'll ever have to bag my clipping's again! Highly recommend!

Honda Commercial Mower - Hrc216k3hxa
Mower setup was easily accomplished using the detailed and illustrated instructions. No out of the ordinary tools were needed. Mowing height adjustment is quick. The rear discharge design allows close mowing from the right or left. The optional rear discharge chute is recommended when debris collection is not a concern. The ability to vary the self-propelled speed using the drive clutch lever is very useful when mowing in tight areas. Trees, shrubs, or others objects can be approached... more

Awesome Mower!
I love my new Honda HRC216K3HXA mower. Ordering experience was great, especially the advice I received when I emailed Mowers Direct. I priced the mower locally and found Mowers Direct price to be about 10% cheaper, plus I didn't have to pay sales tax so I saved almost 18% over purchasing local. The only glitch was having to wait for shipping which actually only took 5 business days, however, the shipping company damaged the first mower so I followed the instructions on Mowers Direct website... more
