Great lawnmower, 7 years old, never even changed the spark plug, starts first pull. Need to replace fan belt and drive wheels as they have no thread. 10 out of 10 Show details

Don't recomend this product

Engine is great. Easy to start. The transmission has failed after less than 200 hours. I cannot pull the mower backwards by hand and the transmission has locked up. I do not recommend this mower.

Rubbish - Honda is garbage

So I've had this mower for 4 years and the deck has already rusted through. The engine is good but the rest is rubbish. Can't buy parts, total waist of money. I wish I'd never purchased it. Show details

always needs to be repaired

when I purchased the mower the idea was supposedly to buy what i thought was quality so it would last me.
the use of the mower is very low, as I use my ride's on for 98% of mowing and just tidy up with the Honda around the tight areas
the dealer is fairly apathetic to the repairs. just keeps charging
as mentioned in some of the reviews it does not rev it just idles with occasional increase in revs
The mower is in for repairs more than it gets used
Frustrating Mower and absolute waste of the extra money spent
I still have an old mower a very popular older brand which always has to be brought out as the substitute
I have said it many times before but as soon as it is fixed this time it will be sold and i will buy another brand Show details

Honda Hrn216pkua review

I am disappointed this lawn mower I brought today does not have anyway to increase the revolutions as it seems to operate at idle only. Poor design and it should be modified

dissapointing mower

I bought this mower two years ago thinking I would be getting a great mower seeing as it is a Honda. It cuts and mulches ok but the problem I found that the mower deck is rusting away as well as the shield/guard under the front of the mower is really rusting quickly. I have never cut wet grass and always clean under the machine after each use and store it in the garage, I give it another 2 years and it will rust thru completely. I had a rover s/p before this and had it for a good 12 years and no problems except for a slightly worn clutch. I expected more from a Honda, but I guess you cannot rely on the name Honda. I emailed Honda , but have had no response(not great customer service) Will not be buying a Honda mower again. Show details

Nothing great

Very heavy and robust mower. Although have self propelled function, does not work well on slopes especially going uphill. Rear wheels will turn but no grip on grass. Not suitable for house hold because height adjustment is not simple. Got to do it wheel by wheel after turning off machine. Sold it and now back to using simple mower without self propelled and all the unwanted functions. Not need to have self-turn-off engine when hand is released on mower's handle (to empty catcher). Real pain to restart each time and sometimes it does not restart on the 1st pull. Show details

Great mower

I have 1/4 acre and maneuvering this mower is not for smaller land sizes. It's cut is brilliant and a perfect size for my purposes. The engine is superb and it starts every time. The grass catcher is the best I have ever had, it is allowed to breathe so fills up and is easy to carry and tip clippings out. Show details

Will any 200mm wheels for Honda self propelled 21" mower fit this model? I need to replace the rear wheels and can see lots of wheels available for HRU models but not for this old mower.

Hi, sorry I would not know. Probably best if you contact a Honda Service Centre.
