    Quality Mower Worth The Purchase

    published

    As a commercial mower in 2008 I purchased one of these to make my life easier when doing the tuff and dirty jobs (high grass and big bumpy blocks) i was so impressed i purchased a 2nd one and wouldn't use anything else...great finish and durable not to mention time saving, even the missus could use it on the days she tagged along!

    Date PurchasedMar 2008

    So disapointed.

    I paid top dollar for a mower that I thought would cope with the harder jobs. Granted the grass is high and even a bit wet... but that's why I bought a mower for top dollar. This mower just cannot cope. Turns the job into a nightmare.
    Clogs - bogs down and hasn't got the grunt to do the hard yards.

    Who'd waste their money on a Honda?

    published

    I help an elderly widow out around her yard and have done so for over 25 years. Her yard is over 2.5 acres but it has too many trees to use a ride-on. She bought one of these time wasters in 2008 because we were told it would cut the mowing time by about 1/3. This piece of rubbish chokes at long grass, thick grass, wet grass & dust- which sums up their yard completely. I have a 30+ year old 2 stroke Victa which runs rings around it. If she had the money & I had the time, I'd throw it & get something to do the job a lot easier.
    easy start, good size catcher, self propel function
    chute clogs too easily, engine cuts out as soon as the going gets tough, self propel function could be faster, hard to restart when hot

    We have managed to find a mechanic who has improved it a little. I just put up with its idiosyncrasies because it is now of an age where it is easier to put up with it instead of trying to improve it

    Great mower but I have had three of these and found one if used in sandy based areas main housing wears out replacement 500 dollars and if u accidently use premium unleaded motor will over heat and seize another 600 dollars but cant find another to replace it so I stick to Honda till I find better
    Great when working
    Prob average25 hours a week have to change blades every 4 days which is costly and dealer says change oil weekly so it all adds up

    Hi Penny, Ive always used the 98 octane premium fuel. If you want to check just call a Honda mower shop, they will tell you what to use or any shop that sells Honda mowers

    Buffalo Classic HRU216D

    Gday,
    love my HRU 216D mower its about 7 ish years old now has cut wet and dry grass without effort and never failed, I am having just now a fuel supply problem and have taken apart the carburetta, cleand it out and reassembled it.
    So what is happening is it starts and runs for about 6 mayby 8 seconds and then cuts out not to start unless I drain the fuel and clear out (as it seems) excess fuel in the chamber. Can you advise if this is a float problem or something else.
    I like to repair and understand these things my self and look forward to your reply.
