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.

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
  • Seven position height adjustment
  • Speed adjustment from zero to 4 miles per hour
  • 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 Honda Lawn Mower HRC216PDA

This lawn mower comes with a height adjustment system of 8 positions from 3/4 inches all the way up to a 4 inch height for leaving your grass extra long. It is recoil start, in other words you need to start the engine by pulling on the starter chord. There is also a standard manual choke system which should be engaged when the engine is cold to enhance starting.

For the detailed specifications, read the list above, however the most exciting part of this lawn mower is the twin blade microcut system which provides four cutting surfaces to chop your grass into finer particles making it much easier to disintegrate if you mulch and to bag if you plan to capture your grass and dispose of it by other means.

Mulching Grass

Many people prefer to mulch their grass for a number of reasons including that the grass provides nutrients back into the lawn as it decomposes and you do not need to deal with bagging and disposing of the grass clippings. The environmental advantages of leaving your mulched grass clippings on the lawn are superior to leaving them at the curb to be disposed of.

Finally this is a push type lawn mower. If you are looking for a self propelled model you will need to consider another model that has this feature. Self propelled models are very handy especially if you have slightly hilly terrain to navigate.

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.

Honda Lawn Mower HRC216HXA

August 7th, 2012 ernie Posted in 21 Inch Cut, Honda, Rear Self Powered No Comments »

Honda Lawn Mower HRC216HXAThis Honda Lawn Mower HRC216HXA currently has a MSRP price of $1249, although dealers may offer a different price and specific models may have slightly different features. Check with your local dealer.

The  HRC216HXA model has a 21 inch wide deck with a rear bagger and mulcher combination. This machine is self propelled and comes with a hydrostatic commercial grade transmission system providing variable speeds to match your walking style or conditions as needed. Vary the speed from 1.8 to 4 miles per hour to deal with heavy grass, rough ground or transport situations. The hydrostatic transmission provides a lot of  flexibility that many other lawn mowers just do not have.

There are no belts to be concerned with as well since it is a shaft drive system. As with some of the other Honda lawn mowers, this one comes with the twin blade microcut system, which provides four cutting surfaces instead of the normal two cutting surfaces..

This Honda Lawn Mower comes equipped with the Honda Roto-Stop system which provides several unique advantages compared to other models. You can stop the blades from spinning without turning off the engine to move something out of the way or get around an object. Operators can also use this feature during transport from one area to another. Stop the blades from spinning while you use the self propelled feature to move the lawn mower from one cutting area to another!

Description of the Honda Lawn Mower HRC216HXA

Other features that should be noted about this model of lawn mower from Honda include the front bumper that protects the lawn mower as well as objects you encounter in the lawn. It can also be used as a tied down location while being transported in a trailer or the bed of a truck.

There are 8 mowing heights from 3/4 of an inch to 4 inches. The engine speed can be reduced to idle and the blades stopped while emptying the grass catcher bag. No need to shut the engine off and then restart it.

Commercial operators will appreciate an added safety feature. There is a manual fuel shut off valve for added safety while the lawn mower is being transported. If you plan to not use the lawn mower over the winter for example, this valve can also be shut off and the fuel tank drained to prevent old gas issues from occurring.

This Honda Lawn Mower model HRC216HXA can be used in residential or commercial situations and has many features that appeal to both environments and operators. Note that the warranty for a commercial operator is reduced to one year for everything except the engine which is two years.

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.
