Hi again: Is t6he battery removable for winter storage?
L N Engel 
from New Mexico 
July 02, 2016
Answer
L. N. Engel,

Yes, if you wanted to remove and store the battery for the winter, you could do so.
+
Hi: Is the HRX217HZA the same mower as the HRX217HYA only with electric start? Is the electric start feature reliable?
L N Engel 
from New Mexico 
July 02, 2016
Answer
L.N. Engel,

Yes, the only difference between these two models will be the electric start feature. To date, we have not had an issue with the use of the electric start on these models, that we are aware of.

Who fixes the mower while on warranty?
Chantel 
from Nebraska 
April 26, 2016
Answer
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.

Does the battery recharge from the engine, or does it have to be plugged into the charger often?
Mike Barry 
from Nebraska 
April 02, 2016
Answer
Mike - the Honda HRX217HZA has a self-charging system for the electric start that charges the battery automatically when the mower is in use.
+
I am trying to decide between a Honda with electric start, and a Honda with both the blade stop and electric start. If I only get the electric start and have lots of start/stops will I wear that part out if I have 10 or more start/stops each time I mow? If that is not a problem, is there still an advantage to having the blade stop and keeping the mower running? Thanks!
Dan Baker 
from Washington 
March 20, 2016
Answer
Dan - if you anticipate starting and stopping the engine as many as 10 times each time you mow, then I would definitely recommend the HRX217HZA model with the blade stop feature. You will increase the lift expectancy of the on-board battery and the starter significantly by going with the blade stop model and not making all those starts and stops on your engine each time you mow.
+
Does it have a discharge chute rear or side capability is this a optional equipment
Marty  
from Indiana 
April 30, 2015
Answer
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.
+
Does this mower have a pull cord in the event that the battery stops working?
Jim 
from New Jersey 
July 07, 2013
Answer
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.
+
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
Floyd Sandlin 
from Washington 
August 11, 2012
Answer
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.
