Description of the Honda Lawn Mower HRX217HYAC

This lawn mower comes with a full warranty for 5 years for all residential use and 90 days for commercial use. Note that the deck comes with a lifetime warranty which is quite special in the industry.

Operators can set the lawn mower to work in one of four settings – mulch, discharge, bag, and leaf shred. This is one of the few lawn mowers that we have seen in our ongoing reviews that advertise leaf shredding. We would be interested in hearing how well this works since we have not used this particular machine ourselves.

Twin blades also provide greater mulching capability and cut all grass into finer clippings causing more grass to be able to be bagged and grass clipping, in general, to disintegrate more quickly.

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