It is self-propelled with variable speeds up to 4 miles per hour. Operators can set the speed based on mowing conditions and the speed that is most comfortable for them while mowing the lawn.

Honda Lawn Mower HRX2173HYC

September 21st, 2012 ernie Posted in 21 Inch Cut, Front Self Powered, Honda, Reviews No Comments »

Honda Lawn Mower HRX2173HYCThis Honda Lawn Mower HRX2173HYC model is packed with features but there are a couple that we have not seen in other lawn mowers we have reviewed on this site that we wanted to bring to your attention.

First of all there is the hydrostatic transmission that provides a variable speed system. There are nine preset speeds to choose from to match your walking speed and / or the thickness of the grass that you are cutting.

Then there is the four in one versatile system. You can convert within seconds from mulching, to bagging , to discharge to leaf shred at your convenience. You can simultaneously distribute grass clippings to the bag and discharge.

Next this is one of the few lawn mowers were you can keep the engine running and stop the blades from spinning. This is handy for emptying the bag of grass clippings without having to stop the engine.  The twin blades also cut the grass clippings into finer particles when you are in the  mulching  configuration. Refer to our specifications section and features section for more information as well as the dealer closest to you for more details.

We also really like the front wheel drive system, considering it much better than corresponding rear wheel drive systems. Ground speed can be adjusted by adjusting the speed lever or simply by pressure on the handle such that you take some of the weight off the front wheels making the wheels slip a bit and ground speed slowing accordingly.

Honda Lawn Mower HRX2173HYC – Specifications:

Features:

  • Recoil starter

  • Rear bag, mulch and rear discharge

Description of the Honda Lawn Mower HRX2173HYC

One feature of the Honda Lawn Mower HRX2173HYC that we are concerned about is the rear discharge feature. Although we have not experienced this ourselves we wonder about all of the grass clippings coming out the rear and hitting our legs as we walk behind the lawn mower. Occasionally there are sharp objects as well that are propelled out the discharge and we are somewhat concerned about being hit by one of these projectiles.

We expect that most people will only use this lawn mower in the mulching mode or in the grass catcher mode. At the time of writing this post, Honda had dropped the MSRP price by $150 to enhance sales as we approach the end of the season.

The current price and specifications are subject to change and can be adjusted by the manufacturer at any time. Check with you local dealer for the latest pricing and specifications.

Description of the Cub Cadet 46ES Lawn Mower

Front wheel drive lawn mowers are easy to maneuver. All you need to do to change direction is lean on the handles a bit to bring the front wheels up to disengage them from the ground and turn in the direction you want to go. Once you drop the front wheels, the front wheels grab the ground and away you go.

You can also adjust the height of the cut with a single leave to one of nine positions to cut your grass to the exact height you need. This really comes in handy if your grass ends up being a little longer because your forgot to cut it, or you want the grass to grow longer during dryer seasons to protect the roots.

This Cub Cadet 46ES Lawn Mower also comes with an electric start to make it easy for just about anyone to start the engine and cut the grass. Of course there are the usual safety bars to stop the engine if you let go of the handle. Never try to adjust the lawn mower in any way without first stopping the engine to avoid any chance of injury.

Delivery: Most lawn mowers can be picked up in the store, however if you do not have the means to take it home yourself, delivery usually can be arranged for a delivery charge. You may want to consider borrowing a trailer or a van to bring home your lawn mower and avoid the delivery charge. Some vendors such as Home Depot, Lowes and others will rent a van to you by the hour to transport items purchased at their stores. The rates are quite reasonable.

Safety & Operation

All lawn mowers should be treated with respect. They are powerful machines and in the wrong hands can do a lot of damage. Start by reading the manual and following all of the safety guidelines outlined in the manual. Never work on the lawn mower without first ensuring that the engine is turned off.

While cutting the lawn and using the side discharge, never allow anyone to stand beside the discharge or point the discharge at something that could be damaged by high speed flying objects  ejected from the lawn mower.

Always check the engine to make sure that there is sufficient oil in the engine before starting each day. Top up if necessary.  Fill the fuel tank while the engine is cool. A good time to do this is before you start cutting the lawn. Fuel spills can sometimes cause fires. If you do spill any fuel, wait until it evaporates prior to starting the engine to avoid any chance of fire. Always fill the fuel tank outdoors.

Shut the engine off before removing the rear bag to empty it of grass or making any other kind of adjustments to the lawn mower.

Maintenance:

Maintenance of the lawn mower  is pretty straight forward. Read the guidelines in the manual and follow them.  Arrange to have your engine tuned up once a year and the oil changed at the same time. This applies to most consumer applications where you are cutting your lawn once a week. If you are using the lawn mower for commercial applications you may need to change the oil more often.

Keep the housing free of debris to avoid the acid from the grass causing the housing to deteriorate. Also keep grass from building up around the muffler to avoid the possibility of fire. Check the spark plug to ensure that it is not corroded and dirty. Replace if it is pitted. Always use clean fresh gasoline for your lawn mower. Following these tips and others in the manual will ensure that your lawn mower will last for many years.

Yard Machines 139 CC 22inch Self Propelled

September 7th, 2010 ernie Posted in 22 Inch Cut, Front Self Powered, Yard Machines 4 Comments »

I just followed my own advice from the last post and managed to purchase a new lawn mower at a considerable discount at Lowes. Unfortunately there are no  more left at the store I went to but you never know if there will be others. There were about 5 lawn mowers left when i bought mine.

The curious thing is that I cannot find it on any web site, even the manufacturers. It is very similar to the Model 44M9 on the Yard Machines web site, however it differs in three major areas. Yard Machines 139 CC 22inch Self PropelledFirst it is a 22 inch wide lawn mower and secondly it does not have a rear bag attachment for catching the grass. You can either use this lawn mower as a mulcher or a side discharge, which is fine with me.

The last major difference that we could see is that it has an old fashion choke instead of an auto choke. The picture on the left is exactly the same as mine, without the grass catcher on the back.  It works fine, you just have to remember to open the choke when you start it cold and close the choke once it is running. The choke is located on the push bar handle within easy reach.

This is a really great lawn mower. I have cut the lawn several times and really enjoy the self propelled feature and also not having to bag the grass! Here are the specs for the machine we purchased.

Yard Machines 139 CC 22inch Self Propelled – Specifications:

  • 139cc MTD PowerMore™ OHV engine
  • AutoChoke – no priming. Just pull and start.
  • Overhead valve engines run more efficiently and produce fewer emissions than the standard L-Head engines.
  • 22″ deck
  • 9 position individual wheel height adjustment
  • 8″ wheels

Engine: The engine is a 139cc MTD PowerMore™ OHV engine

Propulsion: This is a Front wheel drive self-propelled machine

Warranty: This lawn mower comes with a 2 year limited warranty.

Features:

  • 22″ deck
  • Front wheel drive self-propelled
  • Mulch or side discharge
  • Durable automotive style powder coated paint
  • Bottle of oil included

Description of the Yardman 139 CC 22inch self Propelled Lawn Mower

We are very satisfied with this lawn mower. It starts the first time every time. It is easy to steer and control with the self propelled feature and it mulches the grass very well. I usually keep the self propelled feature engaged and just lift the front wheels a bit if I need to slow down or turn a corner. This lawn mower is 22 inches wide, which is 2 inches wider than my old lawn mower and I do not have to bag the grass either. I save a lot of time as a result and I am saving on the cost of paper bags which we fill each week and put out to the curb. Saves me money and saves the city the cost of having to pick up my grass clippings!

All I had to do was add the oil to the engine from the bottle of oil that was included with the lawn mower, fill the gas tank with regular gasoline and start it. I have checked the oil level a few times since and it is still at the right level and clear as when I first put it in.

Delivery: Most lawn mowers can be picked up in the store, however if you do not have the means to take it home yourself, delivery usually can be arranged for a delivery charge. You may want to consider borrowing a trailer or a van to bring home your lawn mower and avoid the delivery charge.

I was able to just get the box into my trunk with the trunk lid left open. Fortunately I did not have to far to go to get home.

The first step prior to operating the Yardman Self Propelled V559Q lawn mower for the first time is to read the manual and understand completely all of the operating procedures as well as the safety guidelines. Be sure to place the proper amount of oil in the engine before starting for the first time.
