Features for the Honda HRX217HYA

The Honda HRX217HYA is a self-propelled walk behind mower with Hydrostatic cruise control. It features Honda's Roto-Stop blade stop system, which allows you to stop the blade without having to stop the engine. Great for emptying your bag or moving a lawn obstacle. This mower also features Honda's MicroCut twin blade cutting system which produces finer clippings for a better looking lawn.

The Honda HRX217HYA also features a 4-in-1 cutting system that allows you to mulch, bag, discharge, and shred leaves. Also, the the Clip Director gives you control over the amount of clippings that are sent to the bag versus back to your yard as mulch.

  • Cruise Control Hydrostatic Transmission: Honda's cruise control hydrostatic transmission lets you quickly and easily set and 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. Also, 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 or full mulch or any of the 7 increments between those two settings.
  • 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 better into the collection bag.
  • NeXite Cutting Deck: The Honda HRX217HYA'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 HRX217HYA'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 features an automatic choke that makes it easy to start.
  • EZ Fold Handle: The quick release handle makes adjusting the height for storage easy, without needing tools or attachments. Adjust between 3 different positions.

Works as expected.  Really chugs it's way up slopes way better than its predecessor.  Also want to share a good word for Jack's who immediately straightened out an order notification discrepancy AND expedited delivery.

This lawnmower is great.

What I didn't like was that my $750 was tied up for 2 months with you as I waited for this product. Considering the dust on the carton, this lawnmower was sitting in someone's warehouse for two months. When I called on July 1, low and behold the mower suddenly appeared and shipped out the next day.Did it just magically appear? I placed my order on May 12. I was told that the order was waiting for parts. I'm puzzled what "parts" you could have been waiting for.

I will be posting my opinion on Yelp. I don't want other customers to go through this same run-around as I did.

Extremely Happy!
      I  admit, I was nervous about this purchase after reading some reviews about this mower that did not talk up the blade over ride option. I have not had a single problem with anything.. Can not speak highly enough with the employees of Jack's either. Thank you for an all around great experience.

I was a little concerned with purchasing a product this expensive on the internet, however, everything worked out great so far.  Could not be happier.

After my 12+ yr old Toro self paced mower decided it no longer wanted to start, I decided to finally buy the mower I have always wanted. I should have done this 13 yrs ago! The Hydrostatic transmission is amazing, smooth, powerful and easy to use. People say the operations are too complicated?? As soon as I pulled it out of the box, my 8yr son, figured out how to work everything and mowed the front lawn, not too tricky. The only two complaints I have are that there is no hose connection to clean the underside of the deck off and that the bag could seal better. Regarding the bag, it could be I just have not figured out a way to remove the bag with out dropping all the clippings that collect at the top where the bag locks into the mower and against the inside of the bag and the back of the deck. Regarding the hose port , not a huge deal since the plastic deck cleans up pretty well, but on this price level for a walk behind mower, I really don't like lifting the mower to spray it off.
Overall, I really like to mow now, what more can I say.

If I order this mower from you and find out there is a defect or it doesn't work do I send it back to you or do I have to find a Honda dealership to fix the problem? Thanks, Ken

Ken, with the warranty you'd have to find an authorized Honda dealer close to you.
