Good cuts dry or wet, high or low. Catcher is just big enough, however solid. Starts most times first go, but don't leave it idle to long as it heats up rapidly. Always clean under deck as blades will stay sharper for longer. Copes with lawn and shabby rentals grass. 6/10.
Purchased in February 2018 at Best Buy mowers for $850.00.
Good, reliable unit
Had mower now for 9 months, block of land is half an acre, easy pull start and cuts grass easily even when wet. Dont catch grass in catcher, use it on its mulch setting.
Purchased in July 2018 at Melbourne mower centre for $700.00.

Ever reliable Honda
The first Honda mower I purchased gave up after 23 years of mowing an acre of lawn. Pretty good effort so I purchased another and it has not missed a beat since I purchased it about 2 years ago. I expect this to last longer as it is visibly a stronger mower and using it as a mulcher mower gives me a clean cut surface even on tough Kikuyu lawn. Starts first time every time and is used weekly.
Easy to operate
We could not be happier with this mower. It's easy to maneuver, easy to operate and maintain, and it cuts better than any other mower we've owned. It starts easily as well. It's quite solid so it's a bit heavier than we expected it to be but that's not entirely a bad thing.
Good reliable mower with excellent mulching capability.
The key with this mower is that it is for cutting lawns not grass. So if you like to let your yard get out of hand then this is not the mower for you.
If you have a lawn and like to look after it then look no further this is the one to own.
it's very easy to start and it does such a wonderful job mulching I don't even bother using the catcher.
I run a two blade setup but you can buy sets of four as well [ don't just add two more blades - they come in sets for a reason].
Weight wise it's relatively easy to move around and the whe...
Works Well But Has a Few Issues
After buying several cheap Lawn Mowers that failed over time, I was excited to finally buy my Honda Buffalo Buck. I chose the HRU19M because of the mulching plug option.
- Strong body
- Strong handlebars
- Very easy to start. The easiest mower I have ever started in fact.
Cons ...- It's Heavy. A normal person will struggle to lift this mower to put it into a vehicle for service or repair. - Large handle bar folding configuration is badly designed and will not fold low enough to fit into the boot of some sedans or smaller cars easily. The weight just compounds the issue. - The mower does not eject lawn into the catcher well due to the small opening at the rear. Not much of a problem if you live in a dry area of Australia, and you mow maybe twice a week. Any moisture in the grass will cause it to clump up at the chute leaving your catcher half empty. The only other thing you need to know about this mower is to make sure your spark plug and air filter are clean. These mowers will surge if they have a dirty plug or filter.
Questions & Answers
What should you do if the two blades come loose and start tilting at an angle? The bolts don't seem to be engineered to stop this tilting.
Hi Chindoly - I checked my lawn mower over the weekend and mine doesn't seem to be having this issue. I bought my Honda at an authorised Honda retailer and had my extra 2 blades installed by them at the time of purchase, so if I was experiencing this problem I would go back to them to rectify. I hope this helps.
The blades are purposely designed to swing back when they strike a hard object. They do this to save your blades and crankshaft. The blade swings straight when engine is engaged due to constant gravity
Jeremy.jeraki , don't you mean "centrifugal force" causes the blades to straighten when the engine is running?
