About 86% of the buyers who reviewed the Honda HRX217VKA on Home Depots website gave it four or five stars. Handyman left the most helpful review after using his mower for one year. He noted that its the best mower he is ever owned because of the adjustable speeds for the self-propel controller. He goes top speed and has to walk briskly to keep up. Other buyers remark that the mower cuts well after just one pass and doesnt leave stragglers clumps or lines. One buyer was impressed with how it could even handle unkempt grass over six inches high.
