Best value self-propelled lawn mower
Although it lacks features found on more costly Honda lawn mowers, tests show that the Honda HRR216VKA can mulch, bag and discharge clippings just as well. The self-propelled Honda HRR216VKA mower has a three-year warranty rather than five, it and lacks some features found on the Honda HRX-series mowers, such as cruise control, a blade brake override and variable adjustment among modes of handling clippings. Reviewers also say its steel deck is prone to rust. But owners praise this Honda HRR-series mower's performance and ease of use, and Honda scores highly in customer satisfaction surveys. The quiet, fuel-efficient OHV engine and the sealed fuel system excel in minimizing emissions; this mower meets California emission standards and is available nationwide.
