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.

This is an excellent walk behind mower. It is very disappointing that Honda has decided to stop building walk behind mowers. That is why I purchased this mower even though I did not need it. The mower was damaged in shipping and Jack's sent me the parts to make it right and everything is good.

Buying experience was great. Mower arrived the next day.  Only thing keeping this from a 5 star review is that I paid $50 for liftgate service and item arrived via a regular FedEx van not even equipped with a liftgate.

I cannot comment on how the mower performs given it's the middle of winter and my lawns are dormant right now.  What I can say is that Jack's made this purchase very painless and efficient.  They provided all the necessary communication for the purchase as well as an earlier delivery than first expected.  In addition, Honda of America screwed up and did not pack the owner's manual or oil in the shipping box.  The folks at Jack's were very helpful in providing replacement oil as well as a link for the manual given that Honda refused to provide them a copy for me.  Jack's after the sale support impressed me highly and I would recommend them to anyone wishing to purchase equipment on-line.

Review:
While I haven’t gotten to use this mower, I’m basing this review on my previous experience. A few years ago I was given a bunch of metal for scrapping and a 40 ish year old HR 214 was  amongst the metal. With my toro mower making some knocking because of someone else’s use I inquired the person I had gotten it from. I was told it was inside a shed that a tree had fallen on and they never messed with it. After some carburetor work, and a couple of small other things I managed to get it running. With a couple repairs I had to make throughout the few years I owned it, the mower always started on the first pull. The clutch blade was an awesome feature, which was the primary reason I got this. After a repair in the spring I decided I was replacing it with a like model, only brand new. I had a 20+ year old GX240 in my shed that had gotten rust in the cylinder with some oil I got it started like it never missed a beat. I work in the construction field and honestly Honda quality surpasses when it comes to small engines.

Just bought this mower to replace my 22 year old Honda mower that still runs but is getting worn. The old mower and the new both have the hydrostatic transmission which in my opinion is the best. Got the new one because Honda is getting out of the mower business. Shipping was easy and on time.

1st new mower in 25 years. Amazing cut and performance! With Honda stopping production of walk behind mowers next year, I feel I purchased none too soon. Only issue at all was the shipping by FedEx.They were extremely optimistic about delivery date, but constantly readjusted to a later date. No issue, original delivery date was actual date of delivery. Lift gate service wasn't needed and box was in good condition on delivery. New mower has been starting on 1st pull, no problems.

This mower is an excellent replacement for my previous Honda.   That Honda worked hard for 30 years before finally blowing an oil seal in the motor.  I decided to replace it rather than fix it and I'm very happy with the new mower.  It has more power than the old mower, is a little quieter, and it mulches the grass better.  I chose this particular model because it has all the features that my old mower had, plus a few new ones.
The purchase and shipping from Mowers at Jacks went without a hitch and the price was right!

I ordered a Honda HRX217HYA from Jacks because they were $100 cheaper than my local dealer who would not budge on the price despite their quote a couple of months earlier. Apparently they were not in the business of making money. 

Jacks customer service was great. The communication during the deal was excellent. I did paid $50. at the websites recommendation for "Lift Gate" service. The delivery was on time but they used a standard FedEx "van". no Lift Gate. So I called Jacks and explained that the Lift Gate service was not used and would they refund me the $50 for that service. The lady at Jacks without hesitation put the refund in and within a couple of days I saw it was posted back to my account. Still putting me over $100 cheaper than my local dealer. 

Jacks - 5 Stars

The lawnmower came packaged well in its original cardboard box. During the unpacking I noticed the Blade Control Lever would not fully extent to lay flat against the Drive Clutch Lever. As I inspected it I notice the upper shift housing was bent causing the lever not to collapse as it was designed. I re-inspected the box and found some damage (deformity) to the interior and exterior that was consistent with the box resting on its side which was most like caused during the shipment. A minor adjustment later and the Blade Control Lever functions as designed.  

The 12 oz. of oil which was provided in the box and gas is all you need to add and this mower is ready to go. I could have done without the bag but someone might find it useful. After I added fluids, one easy pull of the string and this mower started after the first pull like I had been running it for years. I let it run a for a few minutes on high idle, then shut it off. Started it again after letting it cool and mowed my grass. The performance was better than expected. 

Honda mower - 5 Stars

We could not be happier with this mower. It is supplementing our riding mower which cannot get into the hard to reach areas such as under the deck and around the kids swing set. 

I know everyone order is different and for those who had less than ideal experience, that's unfortunate but mine was fantastic and I'll take the win. Thanks Jacks!

This mower is worth every penny.   Yes, I'm happy that I bought it at Jacks!   The quality and features can't be beat.   The plastic (high quality plastic) deck is excellent, and the blade clutch - well... everything, is well engineered.

Going from my 12 y.o. Toro to the Honda, although I was very happy with the Toro, is like going from a Kia to a high end Tesla.  It’s got bells and whistles, and I’ve enjoyed using them.  A terrific lawn mower.

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.

      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.

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.
