I know this video is going on a year old but you bought the wrong blade set for that mower. I have the same model. You want part number 08720-VLO-S00 instead of 08720-VE2-001 that you have in the video.

Daniel Lopez says:

Great review!!! Lots of real feedback for the d.i.y’er!

Tony's Lawn Care says:

great video!

dan smith says:

Great job ! Really great how thorough this vid is

Jeff Worrell says:

I have had this mower for about 6 months now and love it great review I am so happy I spent a little extra money and got this instead of some of cheaper companies

Don Zelmer says:

Good video. I have the same mower, but it is about five years old and wow, your mower is beat up. It’s a good mower for sure. My Honda does not like cold Milwaukee weather in late Fall. No manual choke and runs very slow until it warms up sometimes taking 15-20 minutes.

Raymond Johnson says:

I just bought this mower and what I love about it is it flat out moves. It will actually pop wheelies if you push down on the paddles too hard. Saves me plenty of mowing time.

water2wine1 says:

So spending the extra hundred for the electric start is probably not necessary? I am 62. I don’t want to have trouble starting it.

Official Tou Cha says:

Great review/update! Planning on getting myself one now!

Tee Hotice says:

*This lawnmower has been great!>>>**** It’s lightweight and easy to move around the yard. I bought a 100ft 14 gauge outdoor extension cord as suggested by other reviews and have not had any issues!*

Clyde Perrine says:

Good review. I bought my HRR216 from HD in 2012 when it was on sale for less than $400. Mine uses a plastic plug to handle the mulching chores on my St Augustine turf in N FL. I The recoil spring got weak this year, so I replaced it. It still starts on the first pull every time. I would prefer the drive being activated by pulling a lever instead of pushing with my thumbs. The wheel height adjusters are susceptible to being moved by shrubs so I use wire to keep them locked in place. I only burn non-ethanol gas and I use fuel preservative year round to keep the carb happy. This is the best self-propelled mower I have ever owned.

2.5 years old? You really are hard on a lawn mower. That think looks beat.

Ryan Rye says:

Honda needs to give you a free cord for swaying my purchase to the honda!

Kong Ung says:

Hi my name is Harrison I just got the hrr216vyua lawnmower and I got stuck with the clutch and it could not pull the cable to start it again and this mower is brand new and I only get started once for about 5 minuets and I turn it off and then I tried to start it again and it stuck. I took to the lawn mower service and they all got different but they wanted it to fix overnight or two.

Superior Lawn Care says:

Wow. That’s what you call a review. Good job. Very informative

Jack White says:

Your old blade was great. Just needed sharpening.
Many replacement blades don’t come pre-sharpened anyway, and would need to be sharpened. I guess Honda’s do.

Honda needs to use rubber tires with more tread.

Jason Brown says:

Great honest feedback. Thanks!

Rob Mitchell says:

Extreme use of the word ‘extreme ‘ lol

Reality Check says:

Would this be acceptable for a beginner starting up a small residential mowing business or would it be best to get a chimerical model?

J.J. S. says:

Great video. Simple and to the point.

Superior Lawn Care says:

Thank you for your review. I just bought this Honda . But I actually got lucky when I opened the box. I got the new model. Hrr216k10vka. Dark grey color deck. Different wheels. Again thank you. You helped me choose this lawn mower

Austin Hartzler says:

disconnect the spark plug homie, save your fingers!

Joseph Nichols says:

Greatest mower I have ever bought. I had it 4 years and all I did was change the oil, air filter, blades, and plug every year and it never failed to start. I put a new drive belt on it last year and was going to put new rear drive wheels on it this year. The wheels were getting too smooth. Unfortunately I left it under my open carport one night. Some POS stole it. The first day of Spring is in a few days and I have to buy another mower. Having to decide between another Honda HRR216 or a Husqvarna HU800 for just 50 dollars more. The Husqvarna is AWD, has a 190cc Honda engine, and is a 22 inch deck. The HU800 looks every bit as rugged as the Honda and has the reliable Honda engine. Leaning toward the HU800.

MrBulletpoints says:

Nice review. You hit all the high spots and answered all the questions.
