Underpowered and the Thermal Cutout Does Not Protect the Motor

This has far less power than an Ozito mower costing less then half as much. It failed after a year due to the windings burning out which shows the thermal cutout device does not help. How did Honda allow this to tarnish their brand name? Show details

Owned two, light, ok for small areas

Owned the first one for 4 years and it was super reliable and bought another which only lasted 3 years. It's ideal for small lawns only and for dry grass that's not too long. Anything more and it clogs regularly and makes it unusable. It's pretty cheaply made and feels toy-like at times. The catcher is tiny. Blades need to be kept sharp and the height lever is prone to breaking. Bought a Bosch as a replacement until a better Honda electric comes out. Show details

Bullet Proof

Have put my Honda HRE370 through hell for several years, no mower deserves such treatment. Today while mowing thick damp couch on a low setting, the thermal cutout kicked in. Show details

My first mower

So this mower is my first mower. I've never had an electric one. I've got probably a backyard that's maybe 100-150sqm of lawn.

Pros:

- quiet

- easy operation

Cons:

- kind of hard to maneuver

- when the mower gets full it stops, so you'll need to empty the catcher but also need to go under the mower and remove some clippings so that the mower will restart and continue again

Overall I don't mind it and quite like it. Seems like it's a great little nifty mower and I did buy electric because I want to make use of my solar panels so win win.

suits small lawns

I have used mine for 9 years now

the blade is prone to hacking but fixed by sharpening the blades, not suitable for heavy duty lawns

had to have it serviced once,

wheels fall off often but easily fixed

trails a cord but you get used to it, ran over a cord once and shredded it

I am still happy with it
- it still works well.

Terrible

It seems to hack the grass rather than cust properly through it, likely due to a lack of power from the small electric motor. The grass catcher is poor and you lose most of what you cut out the sides. The wheels are dodgy and appear to come off at will. Its the cheapest mower in the Honda range mostly becasue it skimps on quality and technology.
It can mow your lawn.
It feels like a toy and works like that too, as it isnt really good at cutting your lawn. The motor often stops as it bogs down in taller grass.

Excellent

It's a Honda. The pros all use the the big Honda motor mowers. Other manufacturers use Honda's 4 stroke engines on their better mower models. For the cheapest mower in the Honda range it doesn't skimp on quality or innovation.
Best electric mower on the Australian market. Quiet, reliable, cuts grass (doesn't hack it) and catcher actually works (catches not spills grass. It even just looks good. Great for a lawn that isn't big enough to warrant a motor mower (not too many of us can afford quarter acre blocks in Sydney any more).
Be nice if the catcher was bigger so you didn't have to empty it so often. Wheels can come loose and need to be checked / tighened. (The wheels adjust the cutting height.) Show reply

Hi HRE370 Owners, I've had my one over ten years and it continues to work well even though the brake is getting a little worn. Good to learn that it can be removed if necessary. Has anyone been able to access replacement blades of late? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
