Hi,

I ordered a Honda HRX217HYA from your company via the internet. The order process was easy and without difficulty. I received the lawnmower in less than a week. I have used the mower twice and I am very pleased with it's performance.

I recommend the product and Wisesales.

Value

After my 2008 Snapper pusher died a inglorious death by the piston exiting the side of the cylinder-head, I called Wise and was initially looking at a Commercial Honda. They asked the right questions and recommended the 217HYA. I was pretty leary of a plastic deck, but after Wise talked about its strengths and weight and how many of these that go out the door to never be worried about again. This is a great mower even if I will never mulch. Light, fuel efficient, EZ to start, and well laid out. Yes, If I ever wear it out I would buy another. Their price was right with free shipping and NO state sales tax. We love this dealer! (Posted on 6/23/14)
Great mower!Review by Joseph
Quality

It's a bit soon to be creating a review, as I have only mowed one of my lawns with it. But so far-so good! It was easy to assemble, I added the oil, and fueled it up with non-ethanol gas (I NEVER use ethanol diluted fuel in small engines) and it started easily. Seriously one does not need 'electric start' with these Honda engines! Mine has the recoil start. It runs quietly and does a good job. I am eager to try the leaf mulching feature this Fall! I also like the hydrostatic drive. It works very nicely!
Thanks, Wise-Sales! (Posted on 6/8/14)

After serious research and consideration I decided on a Honda walk behind. Wise Sales offered great pricing and extremely fast shipping. When I decided on the HRX217HYA I called Wise Sales to verify if it was in stock the lady I talked to told me it was out of stock but was expected in about a week I called back 7 days later and was told they had arrived so I preceded to order it. When my mower arrived it was very well packaged and arrived 3 days after I ordered it. I unboxed the mower added the oil that was included. Assembled what few things needed to be put together added fuel and with one pull on the rope it started right up. I was very impressed. I mowed the yard again I was very satisfied with my purchase. The yard looked amazing. I will defiantly recommend Wise Sales to anybody looking to buy a new mower. (Posted on 5/14/14)
Excellent MowerReview by John

I have owned the HRC216HXA Commercial mower for a couple of years and love it. I wanted the same features as the commercial model but only lighter in weight so my wife and kids could use it. The hydrostatic transmission and the blade brake plus the fact it is a honda is what drove me to purchase the commercial model. The HRX217HYA has all of those features, is much lighter in weight, plus the 4-in-1 Versamow System is ideal. There are no changing attachments for bagging to mulching to discharging like the commercial mower.

I would highly recommend this mower. (Posted on 4/30/14)

I had to call in my order since I was using more than one payment method. The mower was ordered easily via the phone and arrived within 3 days. Other than taking two people to get it out of the box it was a breeze to put it together. I added the supplied oil, fueled it up, and it started on the first pull. I love the hydrostatic transmission for changing speeds on the go and the blade stop feature during bag emptying. I hope to get 10+ years out of this mower like my last Honda. (Posted on 4/1/14)

The mower came in a double box, with an incredible amount of packing. No way it could be damaged. It did take considerable time to unpack. Bolted on the handle and it was ready to go.
Loaded the oil, Had a hard time starting it. Used some starting fluid, and it started It blew smoke for about 10 seconds, then ran smooth. Runs good, Definitely an excellent mower, easy to use. Replaces a similar model - 17 years old! Recommend this model. The variable speed is easy to set, unlike some reviews I have read. (Posted on 1/17/14)

Stop Second Guessing and buy itReview by stranchy
Value
Quality
It took me about 4 months to finally pull the trigger on the Honda HRX217HYA mainly because it was in the higher end of the price range. So I researched and researched........ finally I saw the review that said you won't be sorry So, I did it and I AM NOT SORRY. Placed the order with Wise and received the mower in about a week as promised. Mower was double boxed for transport. Took about 30 minutes to read the manual filled her with gas and oil and three pulls later she's purring.
One note is that when you go to engage the blades make sure you have the yellow button depressed and let the lever in quickly if not it tries to stall, (not an issue at all). Another note is that if you have the transmission in full and you drop the lever to engage the drive it will do wheelies which is very cool. You can slowly engage the drive lever even in the full transmission setting and it starts smooth, but wheelies are fun.
Power, Yes, I have a slightly hilly yard and my first mow was after the grass was easy 7" since my other mower had died. The Honda handled this with ease never bogged once. One thing I did notice was the bag got full very fast, but it could be that the grass was so long. I will check the next time I mow should be fine. The blade stop feature was another nice feature when you stop to empty the bag you don't have to re start the motor just re engage the blade 9QUICKLY). My overall first impression is that this mower is well built and with a little preventative love it should be the last mower I buy.
The research I did said that it was an upper priced mower with great features, well built and very sturdy and I fully agree. (Posted on 11/26/13)
Mulching may take some trial and error to get the preferred setting.Review by Dick
Value
Quality
As others have stated the shipping time and condition of carton on arrival was great. I have now used the mower for 3 mowings. We had many leaves on the ground so I was attempting to bag and mulch. Where the leaves were very heavy I had to move the diverter just to the left of the word mulch or else the shoot would clog up. Where the leaves were not heavy a setting closer to the mulch end worked fine. All in all I am very happy with the performance of this mower. It is an expensive machine (hence the 4 rating) and I hope it lasts as long as my last honda. (Posted on 11/13/13)

I ordered my Honda mower on Monday and it arrived via UPS on Friday. Shipping was free, good deal. If congress passes a law to tax internet sales, this all changes. The mower was well packed and double boxed for protection. Thirty minute assembly, add oil and fuel and start mowing. The Honda mower really is a good piece of equipment. Even in wet grass the mower picked up clippings without clogging. The speed is from slow to a speedy walk. This mower comes highly recommended. I was surprised of the plastic deck. Otherwise, service and delivery, outstanding. (Posted on 10/22/13)

This is my 3rd Honda walk-behind mower. I bought the first one in 1987 and my brother is still using it. I replaced it 10 years ago with a HRX when I needed a better mulching mower. The HRX was still working great, but my son-in-law needed a better mower. So I ordered a new HRX217HYA online from Wise Sales and it was delivered from Illinois to Michigan in less than 24 hours with free shipping. Set up was a snap. Started on the first pull and it mows great just like my 10 year old Honda still does. In fact, my 10 year old mower still seems like a new mower to my son-in-law. I used my brothers Toro walk-behind a few years ago and there is no comparison in quality or performance. I have also owned a Honda generator and a Honda tiller for 13 and 16 years and they still operate flawlessly. Oh yeah, I own a Honda snowblower too. Wouldn't own anything but a Honda now.

Honda HRX217HYA LawnmoverReview by Pfeff
Value

Prior to this mower, I owned a Honda HRX214. It's now ~32 years old, still starts easily, but the transmission is in need of service. So, I figured I should get a new model. The new HRX217 has about 3 more hp. Features I appreciate are the blade-stop clutch which keeps the motor running when the handle is released (a warm-up necessity), and the variable speed cruise control (which makes slow -going more manageable in tight spots), and the larger 9" wheels are nice. The unit came well packed and it was easily assembled. Started on first pull. (Posted on 9/14/13)

My last mower crapped out a year ago after about 10 years of use. It was also a Honda, but I used and abused it. I have Honda motors on several pieces of power equipment that I own, so I decided to buy another one because of their durability. I was not disappointed. The mower came well packaged, and was a breeze to set-up. After filling it up with oil and gas, it started on the very first pull. Impressive to say the least. Anyway, I'll continue to buy Honda products as I know they've always been there for me. (Posted on 9/6/13)
Still room for improvementReview by 30 Year Honda Owner
Quality
Value
I've owned the HR14 Honda, a couple of them, for 30 years. So getting a new mower was easy, happy with Honda. You have to read the Owner's Manual, explains important aspects (ie - throttle operation). Filled the gastank, and overflowed gas. Should be a translucent tank where level can be easily seen. Or make a much bigger opening. The HRX seems to have one additional lever for blade engagement. Older unit didn't have this, not sure why it is needed. Made it more complicated. I would keep the pull cord near the engine, no need to put it on the handle. This only makes un-folding of the unit turn the engine over. Might want to make sure that the throttle is off before un-folding. (Posted on 9/4/13)
Great lawnmower when u get used to the controls!Review by Mike
Quality
Value
The mower was well packed and no damage; other companies should learn to pack their material they ship like this! Once removed from box the mower was easy to set up altho a second person was needed to attach the handle. After adding oil and fuel the engine ran on the first pull! I'm curious how long the "blade engagement" handle will last as the mower maintenance book says a couple times the yellow button and handle should be engaged quickly to lengthen the life of the blade control mechanism. I wonder how long will it last as Honda mowers tend to last years. Getting used to releasing the "speed engage" handle to stop rear tires from rotating takes some getting used to; I almost decapitated a couple plants learning the correct process. Other than that the mower performed as I expected which is why I purchased a Honda. (Posted on 9/4/13)

Bagging @ 4" Requires Scrubbing Residue after Each UseReview by BillW
Value
Quality
I've found that when I have the mower set to 4" cutting height and use the bag with control to 100% bagging, a residue of chlorophyll builds up inside the gray blade covering, on the blades, and in the chute leading to the bag. If not cleaned by scrubbing with a stiff brush and metal tool on the blades after each use, the next time there the chlorophyll deposits will have become rough on the surface and they will be blown into the bag. They work through the bag and are like lampblack that gets onto your hands and then clothes. Is there a solution for this very undesirable phenomena? Without this problem, I would be very pleased with this mower. (Posted on 8/24/13)

A Luxury push lawn mower!!!Review by ck

I bought this to replace 15 years old craftsman with single speed selfpropell. Used it once , it's a lot easy to push manually with the 9" wheels w/bearing and it's awesome with cruise drive. I had bumpy lawn and it mow evenly. Not sure about full mulching. My old mower win that. But half mulching work well no crumb on the lawn.
Like hydro stop feature, cruise control ,auto choke start with one pull , easy to adjust handle height and fold with two knobs plus Nexite deck.
Dislike, fuel tank can be bigger had to refill near the end but no big deal maybe I need to move faster. It get very dusty on dry bare spot. The seems to fill up fast and flow back into the mower when it's too full.

Over all it's a quality built and built in feature lawn mower out there. Only pricier but worth it. I'll recommend hrx217hya.

Recommend buy it from wise sales. They protect your product with form double box shipping keep your product from damage. Plus no sale tax and no shipping fee. (Posted on 8/13/13)

Ordered on a Tuesday and was delivered to S.C. On Friday. I replaced my 20 year old John Deere with this Honda. I am too old and too fat to push a mower anymore.

I have yet to mow the entire lawn, but the test run was fine. The differences between the Honda and my former Toro will take a little getting used to, but I don't anticipate any problems.

As to the delivery--the mower was well-packed. The free tune-up kit was not included in the box. The exterior shipping box was not labeled with a "This End Up" sign or sticker, and UPS delivered it vertically rather than horizontally. Despite that, the mower seems not to have suffered.

I was pleased with Wise Equipment's ordering procedure, and only hope that the tune-up kit will be sent under separate cover. (Posted on 7/30/13)

I just blew up a Kubota W5021 that I have had for 22 years and it was on the same spark plug. Only changed the oil every year and sharpened the blade. Always started first or second pull. If this Honda lasts half that long I will be to old to cut the grass anyway. Just cut the grass wet. No choice since it won't stop raining in GA. Burmuda lawn looks perfect. Only thing I could complain about is the drive control bar. After 22 years of the way Kubota had it it's hard to get used to the Honda way but I will I'm sure. (Posted on 7/23/13)

I already knew the product was outstanding. I'm replacing a similar Honda model which gave years of great performance and which had an electric start. I never used the electric start feature. Actually, the wife wanted that feature, but then she never used the mower. Better products than the various Toro mowers I used for many years prior to that.

Better selection, better price, and better service than can be obtained locally. Shouldn't be true, but it is. Therefore, I anticipate being a repeat customer when the need arises for one of your products.

The original Honda box was shipped inside a larger box and arrived perfect within 3 days of ordering. I assembled the mower in 20 mins, put in oil and gas and was mowing within 30 minutes. It started on the first pull and mowed like a dream. The two features I like the best is the ability to empty to bag without shutting off the engine and the variable speed transmission. The 190cc engine is quiet and very powerful. The wheel adjustment is easy and it raises up to a 4" cut. I made the right decision with this product. I've bought from WiseSales for years and never a problem. (Posted on 6/30/13)

Minor assembly required they even supplied the oil. Machine started up on first pull. I had a great experience dealing with Wise Sales and would purchase from them in the future. (Posted on 6/28/13)
A Great Mower with Just a Couple small FlawsReview by RalphT
Quality
Value
Overall the Honda HRX is a great mower, probably the best out there. It's powerful, runs smooth and gives a great cut. The only issues I have with it are:

1. The fuel tank is smaller than my previous Toro Super Recycler that was 17 years old causing me to have to refill after about 3/4 the way done. No big deal, just a little inconvenience twice a week.

2. I find it surprising that with the great mulching capability of grass, it doesn't do the occasional leaf very well. Just chops it into 6-8 pieces. Whereas the old Toro would leave nothing behind.

Now, you're probably wondering why I just didn't buy another Toro Super Recycler. I did and I didn't like their "Personal Pace" system so much so that I returned it. I would have given the Value rating 5 stars except that I feel the Honda is about $100.00 over-priced to be considered a 5 star value. This doesn't diminish the fact that the Honda is still a great machine and definitely worth buying. Highly recommended. (Posted on 6/27/13)

I would highly recommend the Honda HRX217HYA. Today was my first mowing with this awesome machine. I love all the features it has. It mulches so much better than our Craftsman. There were absolutely no clump of grass. There is a cruise control speed that will work in any situation (super super slow to really really fast). I love the Roto-stop blade stop system. I can stop the blades, move an object, start mowing again with no restarting!! I research this mower for quite a while and it has met or exceeded all my expectations. I was very happy to get the bonus warranty year from Wise Sales! Buy one, you won't be disappointed!!! (Posted on 6/26/13)

I'm not one to ever post a review but I do enjoy reading them before I make a major purchase like this one. This mower is exactly what I was looking for. In the past I have purchased craftsmans and this one is so much more. With my previous mowers I would have problems with little pieces of grass that would not be cut (even with a new blade) and my bag would only fill half full. With this mower the lawn looks like I cut it with scissors and my bag is packed full. I really like the control to set the amount to bag or mulch. I would highly recommend this mower to anyone. You won't be disappointed!!! (Posted on 6/11/13)

Smoothest cut of any mower I've usedReview by alan
Value
Quality
The double blade mulching feature of this machine works much better than I expected. With the mulch selector set at 5 the clippings are so fine you can't see them on the lawn and the grass bag fills up 1/2 as fast. Even when the grass is wet the machine keeps working without dropping clods of grass. My old Honda HR215KS would have left clumps of grass all over the lawn. Starts with one pull, as you would expect from a Honda. Expensive but worth every penny.,
My only gripe is that Wise should have packed the extra blade I ordered so it wouldn't bounce around in the box and beat up the lawn mower deck. (Posted on 5/30/13)

Ordered my Honda mower on a Saturday evening and it was delivered to my home in Connecticut on the following Thursday by FedEx. It was double packed in cardboard and when I opened the boxes , the mower was in perfect condition. It took me a while to attach the handle because I did not have a 6mm allen wrench which I had to borrow from a neighbor. (Maybe this should be included in the shipment?). Added the provided oil, filled the tank with gas and with one pull the mower started. Took me a little while to get used to the controls versus my old mower, but now love the way the Honda mows.
The grass bag holds more than twice as much as my old mower and is very easy to empty. So far, I'm very pleased with my purchase and the service I've received from WiseSales. (Posted on 5/26/13)

With this mower, it's all about the cutReview by Filehorse
Value
Quality
Two mowers ago I bought what was then a totally new Honda walk-behind. Some 12 years later I decided it was time for something new and bought a John Deere 14SB which I used for about 14 years. At the time of each purchase, they were both the best walk-behind mowers available. With the HRX217HYA Honda has again regained the high ground. I use my mower almost exclusively in the mulch mode - primarily because I just don't have a place to dump the clippings associated with bagging. I have a tall fescue lawn and even when the grass had become too high because of 2 solid days of rain, the new Honda produced a flawless, even cut without leaving a single clump of clippings to be found anywhere in the yard. The Honda simply makes an incredible amount of mowed grass just disappear.

The Honda handles well and the 190cc engine starts on the first pull and is incredibly strong in heavy grass. I love the folding handle as that feature makes it a lot easier to store in an already crowded garage. This is my 3rd mower with a blade brake clutch and I will never again own one without this feature. The Honda's BBC operates smoothly as you would expect.

You can certainly pay less for a walk-behind mower but just be prepared to get less if you do. (Posted on 5/22/13)

The Hydrostatic Cruise and Roto Stop are worthy upgrades. This allows the operator to set the mower to an exact walking speed and gives the capability of stopping the blade with the engine still running.... very handy while dumping the grass bag.

Incredible mower. Great transaction.Review by Filehorse
Value
Quality
If you rate this mower purely on performance it has to be one of if not the best self-propelled walk-behinds on the market. After adding the oil and filling with fuel, the mower literally started on the first pull right out of the box. In mulch mode there was not a single visible clump of grass to be found - anywhere. At $699 it is one of the most expensive mowers on the market but if you're the best at what you do then being among the highest priced should not be a surprise.

The sales and delivery experience with WiseSales.com could not have been easier or more user-friendly. The order was processed on Monday and the mower was at my door on Thursday. The FedEx Free Shipping makes Wise Equipment an incredible competitor.

Wise disassembles and repacks the handle in the Honda box using an injection foam packing system. They then place the OEM Honda box inside a second shipping box with all the corners protected by the same injection foam system. This virtually eliminates the most common sources of in-transit damage during shipping. Assembly of the handle requires only a 6mm hex wrench to install the two removed fasteners and washers.

In summary, I could not be happier with either the service or the product. (Posted on 5/17/13)

Great job packaging and my Honda mower arrived in fine shape. Initial assembly and start up went like clock work. The handle seems longer than it needs to be since I don't use the bag I guess. Kind of like driving a stretch limo. Starts very easily. The hydrostatic drive works as well as expected. Mulches very well as evidenced by the lack of any straw on top the cut lawn as was common with my old Snapper mower. Overall I'm very happy with this mower and hope it lasts as long as the warranty and hype indicates. (Posted on 5/13/13)

I had a Honda mower with hydrostatic transmission for 20 years no problems at all. Serviced a couple of times. It was still going strong. The new mower seems to continue a good tradition with some upgrades. I mows higher on the highest setting than my old Honda. This is a good thing for the Tall Fescue grass in our yard. It is quieter and lighter. The variable Mulch/Bag feature is great. All my clippings go back on the grass anyway, but allowing some to come out the bagging chute and back onto the lawn keeps the mulch clippings from clogging under the mower when the grass is long. I don't get any clumps of cut grass on the lawn with this new mechanism.

Great mower and looking forward to many years of use.

The self-propelled speeds are comfortable and easy to shift on the fly. The cut quality is terrific as well. If you mow weekly, you will barely see the grass clippings when mulching.

I put it to the test immediately. Grew my grass to about seven inches and used the mulch and bag together (about 1/4 bag setting). The lawn was left spotless of clippings and I only filled the bag twice. My old Toro would have left the lawn a mess with mulching, or filled around 15 bags. The mulch/bag feature was one of the main reasons for this purchse and I was not disappointed. However, I have always had front wheel self propelled, so the rear wheel on this Honda will take some getting used to. Disengaging the self-propel lever every turn will be an adjustment.

Value

The Wise Equipment phone counselor was expert in advice and insight. I had already located the mower I wanted online. The company used FedEx and I received the Honda Mower in 2 business days! Amazing. I cut the boxes at the bottom with a box knife for easy lift off of the cartons. The double boxing assured no damage to the product and there was none. The assembly instructions were clear and easy to follow - as there was noting to do but flip the handle into place and connect with the supplied bolts. [Tightening requires an Allen Wrench - which neither Wise nor Honda provde ! I have the tools, but THIS OUGHT TO BE SUPPLIED]. I filled the mower with the Honda oil supplied, filled the gas tank with (non ethanol) fuel [although the owner's manual says that 10% or less ethanol is OK] and the mower started on the very first pull. I stepped up and bought the HRX217HYA with the idle feature that allows stopping without cutting the engine and restarting. Great feature! I did not realize how often I stop to clear debris, etc. The manual suggests changing the oil after a 5-hour break in period, so I saved the 12oz container to measure the refills. Knowing how much oil to put in a small engine is trial and error, and error is MESSY.
My only complaint with the mower is the grass catcher. The top should be vinyl lined (like with all other quality mowers) so that dust is not blown into your face. Also, the grass clogs the release lever when you use the mulching window 100% closed. You have to clean it out by hand after each cutting.. For the price, Honda could do better than this!
No shipping charges! No sales tax! Best price on the market for a high end mower.

I stopped by my local Honda dealer just to look and see what they had. Never really looked at Honda mowers before. The "plastic" deck kind of threw me, especially for the price. I thought about it for a couple days and decided to jump on one. Then I thought well maybe I can get a better deal on Amazon, turns out the best deal BY FAR was at Wise Sales. The mower got dropped off right at my door, both BIG boxes still in great shape. The mower itself is amazing. Never had hydrostatic drive on a push mower before, never had the blade stop, never had the REALLY easy to adjust cutting height, the list goes on and on. Like others have said mulching with this mower is top notch, I even tried it on 8" tall grass and yea there was a little bit on top, but most fell to the roots like it is supposed to, never seen a mower do that. Bagging on the other hand is the opposite, it's almost like the mower pulls the grass up to be cut, it's decimates the grass, and bags every last bit of it. The grass in the bag is chopped up very fine, and I got twice as much clippings off the lawn as normal. Just so I had an excuse to use the new mower more I fertilized the front and back lawns. Thank You Wise Sales for the great price, and Outstanding Customer Service... I emailed them with a question about the warranty and received an answer in about 45 minutes, and then another answer 15 minutes later. I don't even get responses from people I work with that fast. No matter what mower you buy you will be happy with the service, it's the kind of service that keeps people coming back. (Posted on 4/9/13)

I recently purchased a Honda lawnmower (HRX2174HYA) and accessory items from Wise Sales. The online transaction ( great website)was superb from beginning to end. I received an amazingly well packed complete shipment (120 lbs) exactly as ordered the very next day. Because I am in Ohio there was no sales tax and because my order was over $50.00 there was no delivery charge. Needless to say, I will be back. Nice work Wise. (Posted on 4/9/13)

I looked many places for this mower. Wise sales had the best price by far. The free shipping was also great! Dennis, with Wise sales gave me the best deal, and he was very professional in doing so. The Honda HRX2174HYA is an awesome mowing machine! Very easy assembly, after adding oil, and gas it started with the 1st pull. The lifetime warranty on the Nexlite Deck, and 6 year warranty on the motor are great! I am telling everyone that I know to call Wise sales and ask for Dennis for the best price on this mower. I will definitely use Wise sales in the future.

Thank again Wise Sales ,

Great MachineReview by LouBriccant

First off, just wanted to Thank WiseSales for a great price and free shipping. The mower is fantastic. I only have a few gripes. For being a $799 retail mower I was hoping for a slightly better bag. My 8 year old Craftsman to this day has a better bag, even with 8 years of use. I don't know why Honda hasn't figured out a dust blocker type bag. I have some dry spots in my yard that hasn't grown in yet and I was engulfed in dust. My Craftsman would block the dust on 3 out of 4 sides of the bag. The dust would flow over the top and force down toward the lawn. Great design. Honda, not so much. Wheels on a $800 mower should be ball bearing, what's with the cheapo wheels Honda?... Now the good. The mower feels very solid. No harsh vibrations and the throttle controls are great. My last mower was all or nothing. The multiple mulching options are top notch. The self propelled system is also great. You can speed up the pace or slow it down by the hand control on the left or not fully engaging the clutch lever. Overall I'm very happy about the mower.

Wise delivered the Honda HRX217HYA in excellent condition as promised on time. The mower is all we expected, easy to use and easy to start. After adding oil and filling the gas tank the mower started on the first pull!! (Posted on 4/1/13)

I order this mower on Monday morning and received the mower on Wednesday by noon. I did not expect to have such a large product delivered so quickly. The packaging was excellent and everything in great shape when received. The mower took less than 30 minutes to unpack and assemble and there were no missing screws or bolts. So far the mower is working great and seems to be of good quality materials and workmenship. The ease of switching between mulching and bagging is also nice. (Posted on 3/4/13)
It better be good!Review by Duckbill59

First off, the price scared me! I never have purchased a self propelled lawnmower in this price range. In fact, I thought it was too expensive up until a few years ago when I got tired of repairing free hand me down lawn mowers. It was shipped quickly from Wise sales, packaged very well, and it started on it's first pull after adding oil and gas. I cannot wait to see if pulling it backwards is difficult like the last self propelled Honda mower I had! I gave that one away since I could not figure that out! Time will tell on my 1 acre plus lot with slopes and hills! (Posted on 2/17/13)

After several weeks of shopping, I chose the Honda HRX217HYA as the mower i wanted and WiseSales had the best price i could find. However, when i check their reviews, I noted very mixed opinions dealing with shipping and service. I decided to call and discuss my concerns. I talked to robert who assured me they were a family run business and did everything they could to take care of their customers, Still with some hesitation, I ordered the mower on Tuesday afternoon. Much to my surpise, the mower arrived less than 48 hours later. i haven't started it yet but from all reviews of the machine i have no doubt it will perform as needed. thanks for the fast service. I can recommend this company for future purchases. (Posted on 4/27/12)
Best Mower Available!Review by Land Sculpting Lou

I bought this mower to use it as a finish mower. The mulching system is probably the best I've ever used. It also has the Blade Stop system which allows you to plet go of the handle to pickup a stick without having to restart the mower. This mower used to be the HRX217HXA, and was rated #1 by consumers digest for the past couple of years. Wise Sales had the best price with free shipping and No Tax to NY. The mower arrived in good condition 3 days later. Thanks wise. (Posted on 4/9/12)
