Honda Lawn Mower HRX217HZA

Honda Lawn Mower HRX217HZAThe Honda Lawn Mower model HRX217HZA has all of the features that the other Honda lawn mowers we have reviewed on this have plus the ability to be started electrically. Just push a button and the rechargeable battery will start the engine up to 300 times in a season.

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.

Combined with the twin blades that cut grass clippings into finer particles, this lawn mower can not only bag a larger amount of grass, you can also set it up to discharge, mulch and/or leaf shred as well. We have not tried the leaf shredding capability and would be interested in hearing from our readers how well this works. Finally, shredded leaf particles will compress a great deal into the leaf bag and this could be a really great feature if it works as it is designed to.

We provide a full list of specifications and features in the following.
