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.

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.
