Features for the Honda HRX217VLA

The Honda HRX217VLA mower is a self-charging electric start model. No more plug-in charging! Also equipped with the 4-in-1 Versamow system, you can mulch, bag, discharge, or shred leaves with no extra tools or extra costly attachments. Plus with the Microcut twin-blades and a large capacity grass bag, you can bag more clippings at once. Honda's HRX models come with a full top to bottom 5 year residential warranty.

Honda GCV200 Engine: Power, efficiency, reliability, and easy-starts are what Honda's premium GCV engines are all about. All Honda mower engines are 50-state EPA and CARB compliant.

Self-Charging Electric Start: A Cyclon sealed lead-acid battery powers the electric start system so you don't have to plug it in to start.

Select Drive: Easily adjust the speed by rotating the speed adjust dial. Then engage the Select Drive control for intuitive, comfortable speed control up to 4 mph.

4-in-1 Versamow: Mulch, bag, discharge, shed leaves, or try a combination of mulching and bagging. Adjust the clip director to allow more clippings to be bagged or mulched.

MicroCut Twin Blades: Four cutting surfaces produce finer clippings, meaning better mulch for your yard or more grass in the bag.

NeXite Mowing Deck: The stronger, rust-free, no-dent mowing deck is so durable, it comes with a lifetime warranty.

Auto Choke: The choke automatically adjusts to ensure an easy start everytime.

Adjustable Handle: 3-position quick release adjustable handle gives you a more customized feel, and it folds over for storage.

Cutting Height: 7-position cutting adjustments between 0.75 - 4 inches.

Large Capacity Bag: Equipped with a 2.5 bushel grass bag to reduce emptying times.

Couldn’t find this mower locally in the PNW but Jack’s had it.  Mower seems great so far.  Surprisingly the plastic deck model is quite a bit heavier than the Honda steal deck models, but hoping deck will last much longer.  Electric start is nice for my wife since newer model now requires the motor to be completely killed in order to empty bag.  Great shipping via UPS.

I know Honda is a great company so I bought the Electric Start Self Propelled Mower for my daughter.  She had a Troy that she had purchased a year before and it wouldn't start this year.  The Honda has a 5 year warranty and we have had a Honda for about 15 years and it is still working.  It's not an electric start either.  I am very satisfied with the service and product that I have purchased at Mowers at Jacks and would definitely recommend them.

I am enjoying my new mower because it so easy to use. It takes very little effort and makes my job a pleasure. When I compare it to my old one I wish I had bought it sooner. I would suggest to friends and family to purchase this type of mower.I especially like the way it is self charging and quickly and has alot of power.

looking at a hrx217vla but the label shows hrx2174vla.......what is different on the '4'..........thx

Carroll, according to Honda, the "4" in the model number represents a model change.  View Honda Model Identification Guide. Often times, Honda will use the same model number from one year to the next, but not change anything other than the part number and serial number range. Both use the same Honda GCV190 engine.
