  6 Questions
Q: Who fixes the mower while on warranty?
by Chantel from Nebraska on April 26, 2016

A: Chantel - the Honda warranty is a nationwide warranty, so you can take the mower to any Honda authorized service center in your area should warranty repairs ever be required. We have a link at the bottom of our web site for "service centers" if you want to find the closest Honda authorized service center in your area.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Is this mower front or rear wheel drive?
by Jim from California on April 22, 2016

A: Jim - the Honda HRR216 series mowers are rear wheel drive.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: If you want to discharge the grass, how does that work? Is there a side discharge?
by Brian from Florida on January 22, 2016

A: Brian - on the Honda HRR216 series mowers, the discharge function is through the rear of the mower deck. To discharge clippings to the rear, remove the grass bag and leave the Clip Director lever in the BAG position. The shutter door on the rear of the deck (where the bagger hooks on to the mower) stays slightly open, and the grass clippings are discharged out from there.
by Jose, Product Expert
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.

Good Mower
I read a few negative reviews, but went with Consumers Report recommendation, and for the money, I am extremely happy so far. For $409, two-blade cutting is visibly better, sucks up leaves and stickes better than the Briggs & Stratton we had, and the bag collects so much and doesn't drop the cuttings when removing the bag. Handles well. Only wish it had cut a wider path.

Got to be something wrong with this individual machine. Honda has sold many, many, thousands of this exact model that have no issues. I assume it is new, or no more than a few months old. So any defects in parts / workmanship, are covered under Honda's factory warranty. Here are some close to Lilburn; it's no problem you did not buy it from one of these dealers, as they are all authorized to do service / warranty repairs:

Great Mower
This is a great mower, starts easy. I am disabled with the use of only one arm and I start it easily.

I love the smart drive. I don't know why I would spend $500, $600, $700 or even $800 for a mower, I don't know what they would do that this mower don't. Hey, it mows the grass, that's all I need.

With my disability, I can go at my own pace and easily mow my lawn. I highly recommend this mower.
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: None

6" Pull
The instructions called for you to pull slowly on the cord until you felt some resistance and then give a sharp yank to start the engine. I didn't believe it since I needed to pull my old mower until my arm was ready to fall but sure enough, a sharp 6" pull was all it needed.
Since the top speed is 4 mph (15 minute mile) you can get in your treadmill work at the same time.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, I'd Buy It Again, Exceeded Expectations

Very Capable And Well Priced Mower For Bagging And Mulching
Review is on a 8-9 year old mower of this same model that has the old style bagging plug put into the rear in order to mulch vs. bagging. The mower has always started well. Although there are some lemons out there, it's not indicative of the HONDA brand and anyone with engine starting issues may want to replace/tap out air cleaner regularly and use ONLY Regular 87 octane W/O Ethanol!!! (a no brainer for ALL small engines). Annual Preventative Maintenance.

Rear tires do lock up but I've... more

Powerful Mower
This is a powerful self-propelled mower. Since it was bought to replace a 20+ year old Lawn Boy, which finally gave up the ghost, I was surprised to find that there was a key feature that seemed inferior to the much older mower. It seems that there is no throttle to regulate the speed of the motor - it is always at full power. Since this is a self-propelled unit, if you squeeze the control lever that engages the drive, it leaps ahead faster than a comfortable walking pace - more like a trot!... more
Pros: Quiet, High Quality, Easy To Store
Cons: Should Have Come With The 3in1 Side Grass Chute, No throttle control
