  1. Even if the cuts were equal and he admitted they were not, the hydrostatic Drive makes the HRX 217HYA a MUCH better option. Average $300 difference out over the expected years of usage and its minimal. Besides that the HYA can be found for $729 and most small engine dealers and $749 at Home Depot.

  2. I have the hrx and leave the bag on when mulching. Very few clippings to remove after finishing my yard. I like to mulch and bag so the versa cut is a nice feature

  3. Good test. I’d like to see the same comparison on early morning wet grass. I think the larger engine would really make the difference in that test.

  4. I had the hrr for 4 years problem free but sold it to my sister cheap because I just had to have the hrx. I actually kind of regret doing so because for a person that doesn't let his yard overgrow, the hrr engine is plenty strong although the hrx is definitely more powerful. also the hrr is lighter and more maneuverable.

  5. Mower was received in good condition…>>>t.co/308znbEVKp   Assembly was difficult due to its weight…During use in mowing yard, I found that the brake/clutch pedal was extremely touchy…Once the clutch was engaged the mower ran smoothly…Knowing this condition, I probably would not purchase this model mower again…

  6. I personally had the HRX217 and I really liked it because it is lighter and has more adjustable speeds. Also the clutch bar is more comfortable. Other difference is the HRX is premium residential whereas the HRR is residential so the HRX is better suited to commercial work.

  7. Been running the $500 one for nearly 5 years now with no issues but will be upgrading to the commercial Honda in the spring!

  8. Nice video and I have to say you were right I don't think there was 300 dollars difference in the cut and that mulch plate not closing all the way on the one seems like an issue Honda should be taking care of since the other one doesn't have that issue

  9. Nice work ! I like the snapper commercial walk behind , old school , mainly because that's what I mowed with growing up.

  10. I owned one the thumb paddle ones. JUST to get rid of the paddle is worth it. Man the gave my thumbs a workout.

  11. Right on. Pulled a little Tom Sawyer action and the boys to cut the grass 😀😉
