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.

John Deere JS46 Review

January 7th, 2012 ernie Posted in 22 Inch Cut, John Deere, Rear Self Powered No Comments »

This is a short review showing the specifications only for the John Deere JS46. If John Deere JS46you would like the full review, visit the original page by clicking here. This is a 22 inch wide machine suitable for most urban lawns used mainly by consumers. It is not a lawn mower that would typically be used by professional lawn care contractors since they will want wider machines to cut grass more quickly. This lawn mower is aimed at consumers who like the ease of use for starting as well as only needing to steer and let the lawn mower do all of the work. No pushing with this lawn mower is required.

This lawn mower is 22 inches wide , self propelled from the rear and has a 3 in one deck – grass catcher, side discharge or mulching capability.  A lot of consumers will use the mulch option since there are no grass clippings to dispose of and the grass goes back into the soil to be utilized by the lawn. A mulching lawn mower requires a lot less work in terms of either raking grass clippings or emptying the grass clippings our of the rear bag into a disposal bag of some kind. Most people would just like to be done with cutting grass and have no extra work to do.  Refer to the main review page for additional comments by other readers as well.

John Deere JS46 Specifications:

  • 8.75 pound foot of torque
  • 190 cc ( 11.6 cu inch) Briggs & Stratton engine
  • 4 cycle, OHV engine
  • 22 inch steel deck
  • 1 lever adjustment system for all  wheels
  • 3 in 1 discharge

Engine: 190 cc ( 11.6 cu inch) Briggs & Stratton engine

Propulsion: Variable speed , rear wheel drive

Warranty: 2 year limited warranty

Features:

  • Electric start with recoil start backup
  • Fixed speed throttle
  • Operator presence required to operate the lawn mower
  • Side discharge
  • Mulching deck
  • Rear bag grass catcher
  • 8 inch by 2 inch front wheels; 9 inch by 2 inch rear wheels
  • Fixed speed rear wheel drive

One of the features that almost everyone finds useful is the electric start capability. There is a pull cord, however for anyone that has difficulty starting in the manual way by pulling the chord, they will find that the push button start on this machine is very handy. Not everyone has the strength to pull the chord fast enough to start the engine, or perhaps there is some physical issue that prevents you from pulling the chord. With the combination of the push button start and the rear wheel drive, this machine can be used by almost anyone. Just push the button to start it , engage the drive and you are off to cutting your lawn.

If you have a slope on your lawn, the rear wheel drive will make cutting this lawn very easy for most people. If you can cut the lawn on a downwards cut it will be much easier even with a self propelled lawn mower. If you must climb the slope, the self propelled drive will make it a much easier task. The safest way to cut a lawn with a significant slope is to cut across the lawn to avoid slipping and being caught under the lawn mower and the spinning blades. Why not consider either a front wheel drive or a rear wheel drive lawn mower today.

Be very careful and practice safety work place procedures to avoid being injured by your lawn mower.

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.
