    My First Honda Lawn Mower
    I am a "Honda Purist" and as such have wanted to try a Honda Lawn Mower for quite some time. I am also very eccentric and still prefer the simplicity of a push, (not self-propelled), mower. I really wanted to find a mower, Honda or otherwise, with a Honda GX series engine. Honda doesn't offer a push mower with the GX engine and the other companies that I found that DO offer such are in VERY expensive, (over $1,000), commercial versions. I guess it stands to reason that an engine developed for the most extreme applications would be applied to extremely expensive units. So I opted for the cheapest "push" version to sample Honda's mower line. I do, like many others, find the handle a little low for my 6'1" height, but not too much so. The deck wasn't as heavy of a gauge as I expected but certainly more so than the cheaper brands. The wheels seem to be of a much studier build than what I am used to with the cheaper mowers. I am, however, disappointed with the high degree of rolling resistence in the front wheels. I understood before purchasing that the front wheels are NOT ball bearing equipped, but all the non-bearing wheels I have ever used on other mowers rolled MUCH easier than these. It doesn't seem to make a huge differrence in pushing effort, though. The GCV series engine starts on a very easy first pull every time so far, but then the Briggs and Kohler engines that I have used in recent years did also. The Briggs engines that I have owned had an annoying and constant rise and fall in rpms, which to me indicates that something is not right with the carbeurator, and they ran like that from the time that they were new. The Kohler that I owned did not have that problem, but seemed to run louder, use more fuel, and often backfired when shutting down the engine. To be fair, these were the cheapest of the Briggs and Kohler engine series. I know that Hondas are not beyond malfunctioning but I am hoping that this one well be like the majority of them that do not experience problems for a long time. I have owned other equipment with the Honda GX series engines and a few Honda outboard boat motors and for me they all lived up to the legendary Honda reputation. On a sad note, I have noticed that even Honda seems to be building engines and equipment with slightly but progressively declining quality compared to older versions. In my opinion this holds true for every other manufacturer whether they have a reputation for qualilty or not. Since I have only owned this mower for two weeks, mowing only once so far, I cannot comment on long term reliability. I hope for the best and meanwhile I am overall happy with my purchase.

    Follow Up Review After 3 Month of Extensive Use
    This is a follow up to my previous review. I have used this mower extensively for almost 3 months now since I do lawn care for 4 other neighbors in addition to my own yard. The mower has performed flawlessly in every way. The low handle height and the weight/rolling resistence are somewhat bothersome. If I could change to a higher handle and ball bearing front wheels I would be more comfortable with it. I don't think you could take much of the weight off of it without compromising the quality of the build. It's still well worth the extra money!

    Uses twice the gas my lawn boy did.Handle is in uncomfortable position.Used 1 time for 2 hours and it leaked oil on mower deck.I put the 12 oz bottle of oil in that was supplied with mower. I'm now thinking about rebuilding my 20+ year old law boy and sending the Honda back. Sure do miss my Lawnboy!
