Product Overview


The Honda HRX217K5VKA 187cc Gas 21 in. 4-in-1 Versamow System Lawn Mower with Clip Director and MicroCut Blades is a self-propelled lawn mower featuring a variable speed Select Drive. The Versamow System in this Honda machine allows you to mulch, bag, discharge, and shred leaves using the Clip Director knob to choose the quantity. This lawn mower is powered by a GCV190 engine, which provides years of reliable service, and is protected by the NeXite mowing deck to prevent rust, corrosion, or dents during use. The HRX217K5VKA also uses Honda’s exclusive twin blade MicroCut System which uses four cutting surfaces to produce a 21 in. cutting path and ultra fine clippings to maximize your bag volume.
  • Easily adjust the mower's speed to your stride by rotating the speed adjust dial, then engaging the Select Drive control for intuitive, comfortable speed control
  • Honda's revolutionary Versamow System allows you to mulch, bag, discharge, and shred leaves, or even a combination of mulching and bagging by slide the convenient Clip Director knob to choose how much grass is bagged or mulched without the need of tools or costly attachments
  • Exclusive twin blade MicroCut System uses four cutting surfaces that result in ultra fine clippings for superior mulching and more clippings per bag resulting in a perfect cut, less time emptying the bag, and less work for you
  • 21 in. deck is made of NeXite, a high impact resistant material that does not dent, rust, or corrode over time, to add durability to the mower
  • Easy-starting, fuel efficient, and powerful, GCV190 engines provides years of reliable service
  • Honda auto choke system offers easy starting without needing engine choke
  • Versamow System helps you to mulch or partially mulch even in severe conditions by adjusting the 10 position Clip Director to the right setting for your lawn
  • Mow 30% farther before needing to empty the bag with smaller grass clipping to increase the amount in your bag
  • Convenient rear discharge door improves maneuverability, eliminating the need for a separate discharge chute attachment
  • Quick release handle is easy to adjust to one of 3 positions for comfortable mowing, or to fold it over for a more compact storage
  • Large 9 in. ball bearing wheels offer better maneuverability, smoother drive, and increased durability
  • 7 position cutting height adjustments conveniently set the correct mowing height for lawn conditions
  • 2.5 bushel large capacity grass bags are balanced so they are easy to empty, saving you time and effort
  • Flywheel brake safety system quickly stops the engine when you let go of the brake lever
  • Manual fuel shut-off valve can be shut off for transport, storage, or to perform maintenance

Works well so far.
Bought this Honda lawn mower to replace my 26 year old Honda HR214 mower which is still running. Old mower keeps running, but handle has broke for 2nd time on this mower and new part is just so expensive to replace, but it is a 26 year old mower.

Really like the mulching capability of this mower. Does a very good job of clippings mulched into lawn.

Not sure about the Auto-choke system. When cold, the mower does start, but kind of goes up and down in engine speed until engine warms up and choke probably goes off. I am old school and would prefer a choke that I can select as they always seem to work unless the cable breaks.

I mow my residential lawn that is about 1/3 acre. Mower is quiet compared to most other brands.

Hope this lasts as long as my previous Honda.

Starts first time, every time. And quiet, too!
I purchased this mower based on the Honda reputation. My parents have had one since I can remember and every one of the ones they owned was low maintenance and very high reliability. The "self propelled" is variable speed, which is very handy as I have sections of lawn that are long and straight (I can go at a pretty good pace) and others that are short and curvy (so I dial it down some). I have used the mower twice: once with the bag on and once in "mulch" mode. Both are excellent. The bag has enough capacity that I'm not stopping every 30 feet to dump it, and the mulch comes out very fine - just as I like it. I haven't found anything to criticize on this mower, yet. I doubt I will.

Nice Mower
I had high expectations for the lawnmower given its price and it didn't disappoint.

No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Looks good, but you can't tell machinery by looksbut longevi
Can't tell ...too soon...starts easily. On the downside the height adjustment levers look awful flimsy and I cant imagine they will last long. It takes a lot of effort to move them and they are only sheet metal..not what I would expect from an expensive Honda,,==..Maybe an inexpensive Murray!!
