Description of the Honda Lawn Mower HRR216PKA

This lawn mower although lower down in the line up for overall features is still a great lawn mower for those people who only have a small lawn to cut and do not mind pushing their lawn mower.

The front wheels are plastic, while the rear wheels have ball bearings in them since they need to handle more weight. The grass catcher bag can hold up to 2.4 bushels in grass clippings which is sufficient for many lawns.

If you plan to mulch your lawn, most people find with any mulching lawn mower that they work much better if you cut your grass more often before it gets too long. The lawn mowers can do a much better job when the grass is around an inch long in terms of new growth.

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.

There is a side grass bag that can also be purchased as an accessory if you really need to catch the grass clippings, however after using a mulching lawn mower myself, I would never use a grass catcher again unless for some reason I let the grass get too long. Mulching lawn mowers are great especially when you cut the grass often and do not let it too long. Sometimes I will also use the grass catcher to collect leaves as long as there are not too many.

  • Honda 160cc OHC engine – Overhead Cam, 4-cycle emission certified engine is easy starting, low emissions, low noise, no mixing of oil and gas

This is a great little push lawn mower which will last many years for the average urban home owner assuming you follow the standard maintenance recommended for this lawn mower.

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. The MTD Gold Push Mower 109Q can be purchased at many stores across Canada.

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. 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.

Warranty

The MTD Gold High Wheel Push Mower model 549Q comes with a 3 year limited warranty. Consumers concerned about what is covered and what is not covered should review the limited warranty before purchase.

Accessories

The rear discharge kit was the only accessory mentioned.

Price & Delivery

The MTD Gold High Wheel Push Mower model 549Q can be purchased at a number of dealers around the country. We did not see a price on the company’s website for this push lawn mower.

Maintenance

Consumers who take good care of the MTD Gold High Wheel Push Mower model 549Q will have a lawn mower that lasts for many years. After every grass cutting, clean off the deck of the lawn mower to prevent buildup of wet grass that is acidic and  can over time eat away at the deck of the lawn mower. Build up of grass near the exhaust can also ignite a fire or at least cause a lot of smoke to be generated. If you do not think this can happen, the writer can attest that it actually happened on his lawn mower.

Also, before starting the MTD Gold High Wheel Push Mower model 549Q each time, check it over to confirm there are no loose parts, that there is sufficient oil in the engine and sufficient gasoline in the tank for to cut your lawn. As a general rule you should not fill a gasoline tank while the engine is hot.

Change the oil based on the recommendations of the manufacturer, however it should be changed at least once per season as a minimum and more often if you are a heavy user and have a lot of lawn to cut.

Safety & Operation

A few comments about safety and operation of the MTD Gold High Wheel Push Mower model 549Q and really any lawn mower. When ever you are working on the lawn mower always shut the engine off. Never try to clear grass from the housing while the engine is running. The same goes for oil changes and changing the grass catcher. Many people will circumvent what is known as the dead man’s switch i.e. when you release the bar, the engine stops, however some people will wire these closed so that the engine remains running even if your hands are not on the push handle. We strongly recommend against this approach. Never allow the engine to run while you are doing anything other than cutting grass.

Sometimes sharp objects could exit out of the opening at the back while the grass catcher bag is removed or out of the side discharge if you are using that option. Sharp objects can damage and hurt anything in their way so just turn off the machine before doing any maintenance.

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 with out 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. Spilt fuel 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.

Prior to starting each day check the Craftsman push rear bag lawn mower for loose bolts, loose hardware and ensure that the rear bag is securely attached. Check the engine oil level to ensure there is sufficient oil in the engine in case there are leaks of some kind.

Maintenance

Maintenance of the Craftsman push rear bag lawn mower is pretty straight forward. Always use fresh fuel and if the Craftsman push rear bag lawn mower will not be used for several months consult the manual to determine the best approach. Some recommend draining the fuel tank while others will suggest adding fuel additives to preserve the fuel.

The oil should be changed on a regular basis on the Craftsman push rear bag lawn mower. Consult the manual for instructions regarding how often and how to go about changing the oil. At minimum change the oil in the Craftsman push rear bag lawn mower at least annually.

Maintenance on the Craftsman push rear bag lawn mower is pretty simple, however not everyone is comfortable in performing even basic maintenance like oil changes. Consumers should take their lawn mower into a Sears / Craftsmen recognized maintenance facility to have their lawn mower maintained while under warranty. You may also want to get to know your local small engine mechanic, since you may obtain better prices and advice.

I look after my own Craftsmen lawn mower, however I have benefited from talking to a local small engine repair shop several times when I needed help with what I thought was a tricky repair. I have always purchased the parts I needed from him, even if they were a bit more expensive. The assistance I received more than offset the extra few dollars it cost me to purchase parts from his shop.

The MTD Gold High Wheel Push Mower model 589Q can be purchased at a number of dealers around the country. We did not see a price on the company’s web site for this push lawn mower.

Maintenance

Consumers who take good care of the MTD Gold High Wheel Push Mower model 589Q will have a lawn mower that lasts for many years. After every grass cutting, clean off the deck of the lawn mower to prevent buildup of wet grass that can over time eat away at the deck of the lawn mower.

If you do not think this can happen, the writer can attest that it actually happened on his lawn mower.

Also, before starting the MTD Gold High Wheel Push Mower model 589Q each time, check it over to confirm there are no loose parts, that there is sufficient oil in the engine and sufficient gasoline in the tank for to cut your lawn. As a general rule you should not fill a gasoline tank while the engine is hot.

Change the oil based on the recommendations of the manufacturer, however it should be changed at least once per season as a minimum and more often if you are a heavy user and have a lot of lawn to cut.

Safety & Operation

A few comments about safety and operation of the MTD Gold High Wheel Push Mower model 589Q and really any lawn mower. When ever you are working on the lawn mower always shut the engine off. Never try to clear grass from the housing while the engine is running. The same goes for oil changes and changing the grass catcher. Many people will circumvent what is know as the dead man’s switch i.e. when you release the bar, the engine stops, however some people will wire these closed so that the engine remains running even if your hands are not on the push handle. We strongly recommend against this approach. Never allow the engine to run while you are doing anything other than cutting grass.

Sometimes sharp objects could exit out of the opening at the back while the grass catcher bag is removed. Sharp objects can damage and hurt anything in their way so just turn off the machine before doing any maintenance.
