2018 Honda Power Equipment HRX217HYA

Honda lawn mowers. Very smart.

Looking for the ultimate lawn mower? You've found it.


  • CRUISE CONTROL: SIMPLE, PRECISION SPEED CONTROL: Honda's hydrostatic Cruise Control allows precise speed control that's fully adjustable from 0 - 4 mph.
  • ROTO-STOP®: STOP THE BLADES WITHOUT STOPPING THE ENGINE: Honda's Roto-Stop® blade stop system allows you to step away from the mower, without having to stop and restart the engine. Move items out of the way, empty the bag, or take a break, without having to restart your mower.
  • 4-IN-1 VERSAMOW SYSTEM™ WITH CLIP DIRECTOR® - MULCH, BAG, DISCHARGE AND LEAF SHRED WITH NO TOOLS OR ATTACHMENTS REQUIRED: Honda's revolutionary Versamow System™ allows you to mulch, bag, discharge, and shred leaves - or even a combination of mulching and bagging! Just slide the convenient Clip Director® knob to choose how much grass is bagged or mulched. No tools or costly attachments are needed. It's the ultimate in convenience and versatility.
  • HONDA MICROCUT® TWIN BLADES: SUPERIOR MULCHING AND BAGGING: Honda's exclusive twin blade MicroCut System® uses four cutting surfaces that result in ultra fine clippings for superior mulching and more clippings per bag. The end result? A perfect cut, less time emptying the bag, and less work for you.
  • RUST-FREE, NO-DENT NEXITE® MOWING DECK WITH LIFETIME WARRANTY: The HRX's 21 in. deck is made of NeXite®. This high impact resistant material does not dent, rust, or corrode over time. So durable it comes with a lifetime warranty!
  • RELIABLE HONDA GCV190 ENGINE: Easy-starting, fuel efficient, and powerful, Honda's premium residential GCV190 engines are legendary for providing years of reliable service. All Honda lawn mower engines are certified to meet 50-state EPA and CARB emission levels.
  • HONDA AUTO CHOKE™ SYSTEM - EASY STARTING: No engine choke required! Just start the mower and go! The adjustable throttle control allows engine speed to be adjusted to idle when emptying the grass bag or transporting the mower.
  • 5 YEAR RESIDENTIAL WARRANTY: You can rest easy, knowing your lawn mower is covered from top to bottom for 5 full years.
  • WANT TO MULCH, BUT WORRIED ABOUT LEAVING CLUMPS? NO PROBLEM: The Versamow System™ helps you to mulch or partially mulch even in severe conditions. Just adjust the 10 position Clip Director to the right setting for your lawn.
  • GO FURTHER BEFORE EMPTYING THE BAG: Smaller grass clippings mean more grass fits in the bag. So you can mow up to 30% farther before you have to empty the bag.
  • EASY, CONVENIENT REAR DISCHARGE: The HRX has a convenient rear discharge door that improves maneuverability, eliminating the need for a separate discharge chute attachment. Clippings are directed out the bottom at the rear of the mower.
  • MAKE QUICK WORK OF LEAVES, WITH NO ATTACHMENTS NECESSARY: The HRX Versamow System™ makes leaf shredding easy. Tiny pieces minimize the use of leaf bags for collecting debris. No attachments or tools are necessary.
  • 3-POSITION QUICK RELEASE ADJUSTABLE HANDLE: The quick release handle is easy to adjust to one of 3 positions for comfortable mowing. Or fold it over for more compact storage.
  • LARGE 9 IN. BALL BEARING WHEELS: Ball bearings in all four wheels offer better maneuverability, smoother drive, and increased durability.
  • 7 POSITION CUTTING HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT (0.75 - 4 IN.): Convenient height adjustment levers to set mowing height for lawn conditions.
  • LARGE 2.5 BUSHEL CAPACITY GRASS BAG: Our large capacity grass bags are balanced so they are easy to empty, saving you time and effort.
  • MANUAL FUEL SHUT-OFF VALVE: The fuel valve can be shut off for transport, storage, or to perform maintenance.
