The mower starts on the first pull every time. The choke system is idiot proof. One thing that stands out about this mower is the air filter. It's nothing special. It has the same filter that is on the Briggs and Stratton mower that I am replacing. The air filter on the Briggs motor would need to be cleaned twice during one lawn mowing. There is a more dirt and dust where I live, no doubt. But the same filter on the Honda motor doesn't need to be cleaned until the job is done, and even then the filter is half as dirty as one cleaning of the Briggs motor filter. I surmise that it has something to do with the position of the filter that makes it run so much cleaner on the Honda.
I don't have any regrets about buying this mower. It is doing the job and it is not difficult to operate.
I'm kind of surprised at the one and two star reviews of this mower. Some buyers have commented about starting problems that I bet have more to do with old gasoline than anything else. If you are going to store the mower for the winter then you need to add fuel stabilizer or just drain the tank for the winter. Problem solved. Also don't use gas that has been stored for a long time unless you add fuel stabilizer before the gasoline gets old. This applies to all of your small engines. It does make a difference.
This mower also has the standard features of bagging or mulching; But when the grass is thick and wet this side discharge feature is nice to have. Side discharge is not available Honda brand mowers I've seen.
The web picture attached caused me a bit of confusion (the picture is of a single speed model) the model number for the VARIABLE SPEED DRIVE is "AVD" so verify the model number has "AVD" in it if not then that mower may be single speed. This mower's cluch handle for controlling the variable speed drive is V shaped handles at the center of the hand grip so you can control with either Left or Right Hands. The LARGER rear wheels are also a plus.
Assembly was a snap, just follow the procedures (oil, 4 bolts, gasoline, and tighten 2 tie wraps). If your a handyman that don't follow the procedures...here's a tip, the handle bars pull/slide out of the mower deck about 8 inches to put the handlebar carriage bolts in. It sumped me for a few minutes, (the wheels were in the way of the holes). Initial startup took about 5 chokes to get the fuel into the lines after that it started up first pull every time while mowing my lawn.
An aditional feature that I didn't know of until it arrived; all four wheels adjust for height by a knob like handle on the left side. No need to adjust each wheel. Very nice feature.

Way too heavy. The rear-wheel drive tends to be a hindrance... Honda engines are grossly over-rated. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Cubano Libre
