    The ultimate mowing machine
    Replaced a serviceable but aging Ariens mower. Only two cuts so far. This Honda is lighter, easier to maneuver, quieter, smoother, and cuts perfectly. The variable mulch to bagging lever is a great idea. Wide range of cutting heights available. Love the fuel shutoff value - will use it to run dry at end of season for storage. Blade brake/clutch works well and its a joy to cut whole lawn with only one pull to start. I have about 1/3 acre and this gets the job done fast. Expensive, but worth it if it lasts as long as it shoulh.

    A great lawnmower
    I've been using it for about two weeks now and am surprised by just how quiet it is. My string-trimmer and blower are louder. It cuts very well, and doesn't leave tall blades of grass. The dual blades do an excellent job mulching, which allows them to dry out very quickly and compost efficiently. The lawnmower starts on the first pull, I expect that it will eventually go to two pulls, but not much more. Anyways, its a great mower and I enjoy using it.

    Excellent mower
    This mower started 1st pull right out of the crate. Easy setup in less than 5mins to include filling with oil and gas. Mower would be nicer to have composite wheels and bag like the commercial or available side guards for the deck to protect from edges. Runs smooth.

    High end features cost money
    Don't have to re-start engine after temporary stop (emptying bag, wiping brow, drink a beer, etc).

    Too much whiz and not enough bang
    Mow the lawn - have not tried mulching yet as have only used it once to date

    Did not seen to bag that good. Wish I could engage the drive without the blade running; could on my old one.
    I have a 28 year old HR214, starts first pull in the spring, bags good. Was having some problems with the drive wheels so thought it time for a new one - hope I don't regret it.
