Begged for Honda HRX 217HXA Lawn Mower....Should Have Passed It Up
I enjoy landscaping and recently have taken on doing everything because my husband works very long hours. A neighbor had purchased a new mower and after using it one day, I decided it was the mower we needed. The Honda HRX217HXA is not a cheap mower and took a lot of begging and convincing to finally get.
The first few times I used it, I was very pleased. I hate noise and was always bothered in the past with mowers because they were so loud but our new Honda HRX was very quiet. I also was flattered at its mulching ability. It worked like a charm everytime. The bag size is very large and saves time not having to stop and empty after every so often. I was always able to finish quite a bit before having to empty the bag out.
I started hating the mower because it would always stop. It was previously good at mulching but by the 3rd time I used it, mulching was something that it did the worst job at. It started causing me to get frustrated and it was time to return it then. No questions asked. Next time I will check out a mower better. Just because it says Honda doesn't mean it is always quiality.
