The Sun Joe MJ104E has more than 1250 five-star reviews on Amazon. Buyer Jim has had his Mow Joe for more than a year and left it in the weather and abused it otherwise. He is happy with how it has performed. He cautions against buying the 16-gauge extension cord recommended by Amazon. Instead choose 12 gauge for 100 feet or more and 14 gauge for under 100 feet.
Before we get into the nuts and bolts of the Honda 21-inch Variable Speed 4-in-1 Gas Walk Behind Self Propelled Lawn Mower we should point out that the model numbers HRX217VKA and HRX217K5VKA are used interchangeably by Honda to refer to this lawn mower and there do not appear to be any differences between the two. That said the best adjective to describe the HRX217VKA is powerful.
Top 5 Lawn Mowers recommends the Sun Joe MJ401E to people with a small yard who dont want to spend a lot on a mower. The reviewer liked it overall for many of the same reason one might like any electric mower (no fossil fuels lightweight etc.) but he also noted that there were only three height positions with the lowest scraping the ground. And due to its 14-inch blade it takes longer to mow a lawn.
