Honda Lawn MowerReview by Larry

Just want you to know that I used my new Honda mower yesterday for the first time. What a wonderful experience!!! I had to tell my son who has a twelve year old Honda which is still working fine. I appreciate your prompt service, and I will tell friends of your store in Schaumburg.

The mower was delivered promptly.

The Honda directions and images were not as clear as expected for attaching the handle and assembling the grass catcher bag, but that was accomplished. I immediately used the mower with the grass catcher bag, and have not yet tried the mulching function. It consistently started on the first pull, but it would be nice to have a function in which the mower stays on while the blades are disengaged. I have somewhat sloping lawns and one section with short, very steep hills. The extra power of the larger engine allowed it to go up any hills effortlessly, unlike prior mowers with a smaller engine that required intense pushing. The lawn looks very evenly cut. The rear wheel height adjustment is not the easiest, but I believe the extra height notch will come in handy on occasion. I liked the paddle thumb control for speed, which made slowing, turning corners etc. very easy. The only complaint I have echoes that of former reviewers -- you have to take a shower and shampoo after mowing if you have even one mole hill, because there is a significant gap at the top edge where the bag fastens to the mower, plus a gap between the cover flap and the bag; therefore, you get sprayed with fine dirt when using the bag.

I was impressed from the moment of unboxing . Every aspect is highly engineered.
My first mower with electric start. It really moves. Paddle snifter is sporty and mower run away if you punch it.

I really like my new Honda mower.

I am disappointed that the packing a braided the 3 in 1 logo right in front of deck and that will be noticed as I show it to persons. Simple fix , put a slip cover sheet to protect the decal. it is damaged smeared.

Costs More But Worth It In The Long RunReview by Richard
Value
Quality
I seldom write reviews but I have to say that Honda has the high-end of the walk-behind lawnmower market all sewn up! This is my second Honda lawnmower; replacing one that is over 15 years old (that finally needs a few repairs due to age). It was easy to set up, started right away, and did an incredibly clean job on the Number 3 lawn height setting over moist grass. I used the mulch setting, no bag, and the grass cuttings seemed to disappear. I like the speed controls and I really think the neXite deck adds to its durability. If you like buying good equipment and keeping them for a long time, this is for you. (Posted on 6/10/14)
Great service and a great mowerReview by Jerry

I did quite a bit of research before buying the Honda HRX217VKA. I looked at all the different brands and online vendors. I couldn't more pleased with the mower and the pleasure of dealing with Wise Sales.
I had some questions about the warranty, availability, and service so I made a call to Wise. Whoever answered the phone picked my call up on the first ring. i must have spent 10 minutes with him.The man was extremely knowledgeable and answered all the questions I asked. I researched the other online vendors, and after my experience on the phone felt comfortable placing an order through Wise.
The order was processed and ship the next day ans was received a day before it was scheduled.
Like everybody has mentioned, setup couldn't have been easier.
I purchased this model without an electric starter. I think because the larger 190cc engine even though it starts usually on the first or second pull, it does take a some effort when pulling the starter cord.t. I think if someone is not real strong, they may prefer the electric start model.
For a machine this size, it is surprising light and maneuverable.The Smart Drive does take some getting use to. As it is a variable speed, the control is rather sensitive and if you press the control to hard it really speeds up. After a few days of mowing you get the hang of it. I also like the larger diameter wheels. My lawn is a little uneven and I think the larger wheels helps even out the cut.
I am confident this mower will give me years and years of hassle free service that Honda is noted for. (Posted on 5/10/14)

Can't get any better in 21 inch mower Review by BLT
Value

Great mower with good features (bag, mulch, leaves, speed variance control), or a combination of each. If you want only one speed then adjust the cable to suit your desired constant speed. Did not want or need the brake clutch: Just tie the stop bar to the handle with a rope and the mower stays running, undo the tie and the mower stops. Why pay for the clutch when a rope works fine.

Honda Hrx217Review by james
Value

Very fast shipping,ordered on Sunday received by Wednesday.I've owned A Snapper and after using the Honda I wish I would have ordered another Snapper.Just be aware that after you order your pretty much stuck with it unless you want to pay return shipping.This mower has no way of adjusting the speed of the travel,and is quiet fast.It only has on or off so to speak.If your not willing to walk at a fast pace or if you have any kind of disability then the mower is not for you and will literally drag you behind it.I did call wise on Monday and tried to get some input on my purchase to see if the salesman thought it was a good choice but did not get very much input from the sales dept.I used the mower this morning and the mower did seem to have the surging issue that Ivevread about, and when you go to crank it again after emptying the bag it does take several pulls to restart.I would reccommend purchasing the hydrostatic model for $100 more, because its been around for 20 years and has controls to slow thevspeed of the mower down.I would rate this mower a 6 on a 1-10 scale and I would give Wise a 7 on their servic, because the salesman I spoke with did not seem to give me any info , almost like I had to pull info out of him.

I had my first Honda mower for 15 years and it was time for a new one. Wise had the best prices with no tax and free shipping. The mower came quickly (within 7 days) and was just as I had ordered. I was very happy with the UPS shipment, boxing for the mower was top notch and the mower is running great.

I would definitely work with Wise again for my next purchase.

Honda Lawn Mower is a superior product. I have owned a Toro and I have decided that they don't sell lawn mowers. I received the Honda lawn mower by ups. Easily unpacked and set up. I used it on my lawn. The engine ran with power and assurance. The self-propelled operation was strong and quick. l needed some time to get the right touch on the self-propelled because it was so powerful. I was a little uneasy about buying this type of product online and from a company I knew little about. Wise sales did everything any customer would want. I will buy from them again. Mulching and grass cutting was very efficient and complete. The wheels are marked with numbers for cutting. So there is no guess work between front and back wheels, as to position. The engine is easily started and runs beautifully. The paint finish on the lawn mower inspires confidence that the right product was purchased. (Posted on 10/23/13)

Had a Toro Personal Pace mower that lasted about 5 years. It was nice as you push it, it would move. With the Honda it actually pulls you. Sometimes I was actually running with it! Found myself less tired after an hour of mowing. Second time I used it, I mulched the grass right after a good rain with no problems! Very happy with it, would like an easier way of changing the motor oil and a 22 inch wide cut instead of 21. Paying an extra $200 for a larger 30cc engine, I feel like it was over priced.

I ordered the HRX217VKA on August 6th and received it on August 9th. It was well packed with lots of styrofoam and double boxed. Only had to install two bolts and washers on the handlebar, install motor oil and put cover on grass bag frame. Please note that the two washers are installed between the handlebar and handlebar mounting bracket. Had to call Wise Sales to inquire about where the washers were to be installed. The sales guy went and looked at a floor model to confirm their location. Have not cut any grass with it yet, but it is an awesome looking lawn mower. Looks like it will last forever.

Worth the moneyReview by Gary

I purchased this mower from Wise and was very happy with the cost when compared to local stores, and even happier when the mower was deliverd right to my garage despite costing less by using Wise.
This mower started right up after adding the oil and gasoline. The pull requires more effort than you might think, but it is a larger engine. The self propel lever is ergonomically comfortable to use. It cuts through the thickest lawn with ease. Only two dislikes. Removing the catch bag to dump the grass, leaves a shelf of lawn clippings that hit the ground easily. The deck is not warranteed for gas spillage. That is difficult to avoid, so have a rag handy in case of spills, since the gas filler hole seems narrow. (Posted on 6/28/13)

Excellent machine!Review by Lawn Barber

Extremely well built, powerful, and with great easy-to-use features. The drive system works flawlessly as does the clipping selector although I mostly leave it on full mulch. It starts up with ease after 1 or 2 pulls even when it has been running for hours. There are no throttles or chokes to set - just hold the blade bar down and pull the cord. I have only stalled it in very thick overgrown grass but you can always manually push it to save all the power for the blades in these situations. Manually pushing uphill is not recommended as this machine is somewhat heavy but fortunately you shouldn't often need to do this. I couldn't be happier with this purchase! (Posted on 6/21/13)

Best mower ever. Replaced highly rated, but poorly performing 3 y/o Craftsman. Mulches heavy grass to fine imperceptible clippings without straining. May never use the bag. Variable speed with the high speed almost faster than I can walk and still cuts without a problem. Considered the models with electric start and blade stop but they add weight and complexity. The HRX217VKA is perfect! Ordered on Friday, at my home on Wednesday. Cutting grass 20 minutes after I started opening the box with easy setup. I usually keep delivery boxes for possible returns, but this mower is a keeper. The Craftsman is going to the curb. (Posted on 6/13/13)

Excellent shipping (FREE) and they packaged the gas can and a quart of oil with it that I ordered. WiseSales was very helpful on the phone, and shipped my product very quickly. The delivery guy had to find out what was in it because the box was so big. The lawnmower works great, used it twice, and it starts up very quickly. Does very well picking up leaves, cuts grass with minimal effort, and the Smart Drive feature works very well. I really wanted the Nextite deck, Honda engine, and the extra year of warranty (Total of 6 years warranty!!). All those Craftsman lawnmowers at Sears have a 1 year warranty, that's it. There is no question that this is one of the best residential lawnmowers you can buy. I plan on keeping this for life.

As a side note, be sure to read the manual as it has some very important information in it (like changing the oil after the first 5 hours, or 1 month): http://powerequipment.honda.com/pdf/manuals/00X31VH7N010.pdf (Posted on 4/30/13)

My new Honda mower is an awesome machine. I ordered from Wise late Sun night and it arrived Tues at noon, less than 40 hours later. I am pleased with the honda mower and amazed by the job Wise did. It was easy to order and with free shipping and no tax they saved me alot of time and money. Wise is a very professional company with great service and product availability. I am impressed with Honda and Wise! (Posted on 4/27/13)

I got the mower within a week of placing the order. Everything was well packaged and showed up intact. The mower feels solid but not heavy when making manuvers; must be the bearings on all the wheels. Just like Honda said, "it started on the first pull". Height adjustments were easy to make and stayed right where I put them. I highly recommend this mower and Wise just offers the best deals! (Posted on 4/24/13)

The mower is one of the best mower's I have used. It bags great even in wet weather. The cut is great and leaves very little grass on the ground. The bag is 2 cubic feet and this mower will actually fill up the bag without bogging down. It bagged 6" to 10" grass with a perfect cut. I was amazed by this. I owned a craftsman lawnmower before this and when the bag was a 1/4 full it would bog down and begin spewing grass back down. (Posted on 4/23/13)

I almost received my Honda HRX217VKA mower before I hung up the phone. It took only three days counting the day I placed my order and was very carefully packaged
for shipping. The Honda mower was everything my friends said it would be. It started so easily even my wife could start it with very little effort. Liked the mulching selector, the bag with the wide mouth makes it easy to dump the mulch and doesn't clog. The twin blades do an excellent job of mulching the lawn into very fine particles. With a six year warranty, what more could you ask?

Thanks Wise Sales for a very enjoyable experience. (Posted on 4/22/13)
First mower I've owned that is a real mulcherReview by Terry

Fast delivery, good packaging with easy assembly. I bought this mower for the double blades and it is outstanding for mulching. The mower is heavy and easy to use when mowing. Initially, I was unsure about the control device for regulating speed, but it works nicely. I also like the shut-off fuel line. I previously had an expensive Toro, which was highly recommended, but apparently I got a lemon, as I had constant problems getting it started. I highly recommend this Honda model. (Posted on 4/19/13)

WiseSales.com is one of the best companies I have ordered from. Customer service is first rate and shipping is fast. The mower was changed to a HRX217HYA because I wanted the cruise control and ability to walk away from machine and still have the motor running. It is the best mower I have owned -- cut is outstanding and there are no issues. (Posted on 4/16/13)

Recieved mower 2 days after i ordered it. I had no issues with package and mower was simple to put together. Cut grass immediately after adding oil(included) and gas. Mower started right up. This was the first cut of the season so I lowered the blades to 1.5. Mower cut great. I mulched the majority of it but also did some bagging and mower worked great with a nice clean even cut. I can't wait to see how manicured my yard will look once the summer growing season is here. I am very happy with this mower. (Posted on 3/28/13)

I have only used the mower once for my two lawns. It started immediately with a single pull. Cut very cleanly. The container for clippings is large and very easy to remove and replace. Being attached directly behind the mower, it is not in the way on either side as some are. (Posted on 3/22/13)

I ordered from Wise because it was $10 less than BigOrange Box and I saved tax too, with free shipping, I saved about $50. Order placement was easy, except I called to order instead of doing it online. Then shipped quickly but I didn't get an email with tracking. A few days later I emailed and the replied with the tracking number quickly. I'm not complaining but if you want email notice when it ships then you might want to order online, it may help. Since the mower was shipping double boxed including in the oem packaging I didn't pay for insurance and the box and mower arrived fine; a day early in fact. I wasn't home but FedEx let my daughter sign for it and they brought it around to the back of the house/garage entrance.

Mower
I sliced open the box, cut out the corners on one end and rolled out the mower. Much easier than hefting it into the back of my van at the store.
Assembly was easy except it would have been nice if they included the 6mm hex key you need to assemble the arms. Bag assembly was simple, added oil and gas and pulled a few times, no start. I opened the directions and then realized that the lever was a safety lever not a blade stop lever, which the same item was on my previous lawnboy. I held the lever in one hand, pulled the starter cord with the other and it fired right up.
The speed adjustment takes a bit of getting used to only because it is fast! You really have to walk at a pretty good clip. I found that the mower was lighter than I expected and that a lot of the time I didn't even use the self-propel, but there are enough hills and features on my lawn that I'm glad I got it. If your lawn is pretty flat, you might consider doing a push mower, with the plastic deck the mower was suprisingly light and easy to push without using the propel feature. Just for info, I'm 50 and in average shape, so I'm not an old man, but I'm old enough to know when I would rather have machine instead of muscle providing the horsepower.
The mower is a little on the loud side but I don't use ear protection except when I get out the leaf blower or leaf vac and although it would be nice if it were a bit more quiet, I wouldn't say that it's loud enough to be a complaint, just realize it if your looking for a quiet mower.
It starts easy enough that not having the blade stop and having to restart when you empty the bag isn't worth the extra money in my mind.
The bag, being wider at the front than rear, empties very easilly and completely.
The wheel adjustment is quick and easy enough that I found a new and better way to cut the edges near the curb/sidewalk. I lowered the left side wheels only and the vacuum was powerfull enough, and with the blades pulling grass in on that side, it cut it close enough that I didn't need to trim. Finished those cuts, reset the wheels to level and finished it. No way you can tell it's cut at a slight angle.
The mower cut cleanly and evenly, but then again, it's new, and that's also why I bought the model with the MicroCut twin blades. I did the majority of cutting with the bag/mulch lever about 1/2 way between the two. I purposely overfilled the bag and it didn't seem to leave any extra clippings on the lawn, you could just tell the motor was working a bit harder as it was now mulching more grass.
Overall, I'm very happy with the purchase, I got what I paid for, I wish it had the blade stop and adjustable throttle like my old mower, but in the end it was a choice between a lot more money or other brands that didn't have the MicroCut twin blades but you got those features. Not having them on this mower isn't a problem, and since the main job is to cut grass, I got the better cutting system. No regrets. (Posted on 8/31/12)
