Picked up this mower from local northern store. Unboxed it, added oil (supplied), topped off fuel. Adjusted cutting height, handle bar, one pull the thing started and idled smooth as silk. Easiest mower setup I have ever had, maybe 15 minutes total. Runs perfect out of the box!! Mows perfectly...

Honda HRX with Hydrostatic

I've been using a 33" mower to cut my yard for 10 years but my wife told me she would cut the grass if I got a smaller lawn mower. My grass is quite thick so I wanted the larger 190 CC motor and it has worked quite well. I have not been able to stall it in even the thickest, wettest grass, the bagger is extremely easy to use and the drive is incredibly smooth. The only thing that hasn't worked out is my wife hasn't used it yet so now it takes me about 45 minutes longer to cut my lawn then it did with the 33" lawnmower.

Tiny gas tank

First I would like to thank the Northern Tools folks. They are very professional and helpful.
Regarding the Honda mower, it does a good job of cutting the grass. I like the variable mulch feature. I like not having to mix gas and the rear bag vs side bag. It is easy to adjust the height of the handle bar. The engine speed and drive speed controls work very well.
I have used it for about a month/five mowings. The gas tank is very small and very hard to fill will out over flowing. They should look at how LB has their filling port designed. I fill my LB up once every 3 or 4 mowings of the same lawn. I have to fill the Honda up every time as it will not quite make 2 mowings. I am not very satisfied with the way the rear bag attaches. Grass sits on top of the mount. I turn off the gas valve after each mowing which may attribute to the 2 or 3 pulls to get it started which isn't a big deal. I am not fond of the blade and clutch bars. I like the LB's better.
All that said I would recommend it as good mower just be aware it has a tiny little gas tank. :)

Easy to Operate from start to finish

Visiting my dad I offered to help him with his lawn mowing duties. I got the mowing the lawn job. After accessing what I had to mow I thought it would not be an easy task. Boy was I wrong. This mower started right away and moved along very easily. I didn't have to re mow any area and the yard looked like a professional had mowed it when I was finished. Dad is in his 80's and he swears by this mower and now I do too.

2 Year Review

This is the absolute best lawn mower you can buy. It starts on the first pull every time, period!! I had to change the carburetor after the first year due to water and debris in the fuel. This is due to the local gas stations changing to ethanol. I now use a fuel stabilizer during the winter and a fuel filter funnel. The transmission is smooth and can be adjusted on the fly. The blade stop keeps the engine running while changing the bag. This is my 6th Honda product and none has let me down.

best lawn mower money can buy

One pull starting, runs beautiful. You know its made good when Honda for a limited time is offering a 6 year parts and labor warranty instead of the awesome 5 year parts and labor. You pay more for this but you get what you pay for. Cool feature on this is no belts to replace. All hydro static and well built.
