Features for the Honda HRX217HZA

The Honda HRX217HZA is a self-propelled electric start lawn mower with Hydrostatic cruise control. The HRX217HZA features Honda's Roto-Stop blade stop system, so you can stop the mower's blade without shutting off the engine. This allows you to move obstacles and empty your bag without having to shut down and restart your mower. This lawn mower also features Honda's MicroCut twin blade cutting system which has 4 cutting surfaces to produce ultra fine grass clippings.

The Honda HRX217HZA has a 4-in-1 cutting system so you can mulch, bag, discharge, and shred leaves. The specially designed Clip Director lets you decide how much you or how little of your clippings you want collected versus mulched. The NeXite cutting deck is so durable and strong that it has a lifetime warranty.

  • Cordless Electric Start: The Cyclon battery that powers the HRX217HZA's starter is rechargeable and designed to start up to 300 times on a single charge. A recoil starter is always present if you need a back up.
  • Cruise Control Hydrostatic Transmission: Honda's cruise control hydrostatic transmission lets you quickly and easily set and variably adjust your mower's speed between 0 and 4 mph. The cruise control, just like with a car, allows you to stop mowing and jump back to your previous pace. No need to remember settings. Honda is the only manufacturer to offer a heavy duty hydrostatic transmission on a walk behind mower.
  • Versamow System: 4-in-1 mowing options (mulch, bag, discharge, and leaf shred). Honda's Versamow Clip Director allows you to control how much grass is sent to the collector or recirculated for mulching. Choose full bag, full mulch, or any of the 7 settings between the two.
  • Roto-Stop Blade Override System: Roto-Stop allows you to stop your cutting blades while keeping the engine running. This is great for when you need to empty your collection bag, move obstacles from your lawn, or move your mower across sidewalks, dirt or gravel. No need to restart your mower because it's still running.
  • MicroCut Twin Blade System: The MicroCut twin blade system produces smaller clipping sizes, which lead to better decomposition for mulched grass and better bagging since the clippings compact more into the collection bag.
  • NeXite Cutting Deck: The Honda HRX217HZA's cutting deck is made of NeXite, which is a high impact resistant and durable polymer material. This deck comes with a lifetime warranty and is resistant to dents, rust, and corrosion. The HRX217HZA's deck is also designed to keep grass circulating longer to produce a finer quality of mulch.
  • Honda GCV190 Engine: The Honda GCV190 engine is a powerful, high quality engine that is CARB compliant and is certified to meet all 50 state EPA levels. This 187cc engine features an auto-choke system for easy starting.
  • EZ Fold Handle: The quick release handle makes adjusting the height for storage easy, without needing tools or attachments. Adjust between 3 different positions.

I delayed the shipping of the mower because I might not be at home and thought it was being shipped by freight delivery such as truck. If I knew UPS was delivering the mower I would not have delayed shipment.  I operate a gunsmith business   both UPS & Fedex knows a different address to drop off merchandise if a signature is required.  Your employees and supervisor are top notch, they had no problem in providing assistant in delaying the shipment two times. I will not hesitate to recommend or buy from you again, Thanks again, John

The Honda mower is great!  Started up easily the first time I used it and it has done a terrific job on the grass. Easy to use, easy to adjust and it's a quality product.....that's why I chose the Honda over all of the other available brands.

Mowers at Jacks pricing on this model was the best I found on the internet and the shipping was done promptly. Just can't ask for more than that.

I should have  bought this mower 5 years ago.  I love it and it does exactly what I wanted it to do.  The self propelled function is wonderful.  It almost mows the yard itself.  I would highly recommend this mower to anyone looking to replace their existing one. The shipping was great and no taxes which was a big savings.

Does this mower come with a bag?

Edith, unfortunately the grass bag is an attachment that will need to be purchased separately.
