I didn't see any 4 wheel drive Honda push mowers. That's what drew me to the Husqvarna model. Not saying they don't have one.

I feel better now.
We had light puffy flakes falling slowly off and on for the last two days.

Not bad, so now I've got a 6 year warranty on the mower, and a lifetime warranty on the Nextite deck.

Thanks for all of the recommendations and input. This is the first new mower I have ever purchased. My first one was free, and second I bought used for $60. I will be mowing in style now!


Driving yesterday I noticed a crew out cutting lawn. They were both using Honda push mowers that were rear discharge with bag attachment, and mulch capabilities. They were not bagging the grass but rather using the mulch. I was so impressed with the quality of the cut that I went to a Honda equipment dealer this morning and purchased a mower.

I didn't get any bag capabilities with mine. I just went for the side discharge and mulch. The more I thought of it I also didn't get self-propelled because it would limit what I could cut with the machine. I wouldn't have been able to cut my ditch, cistern and trimming around evergreens would be very difficult. The amount of cutting I do I am also hard on machines. For the Honda push mowers I also found the one with the bag was far too heavy. Secondly I already have a mower that I can bag grass with.

The build quality is fantastic, started with ease on the first pull. Very quiet. The mower folded up nicely onto itself and could even fit in the trunk of my car. The dealer also advised me to only use high octane gas and avoid buying from generic gas stations.

You are going to be a very happy camper with your mower. You have all the bells and whistles too.

Glad you like your Honda. I have mowed twice with mine now and bagged 100% both times. This thing cuts like a champ. I am very happy that I went with the feature that allows the mower to keep running when dumping grass. The speed control knobs are great too and I can't imagine liking the paddle level Type controls more. I plan on changing the versa mow to maybe 70% bag and 30% mulch later just to experiment with things. I actually look forward to mowing now. The mower is pretty quite, but the 190cc engine does put off a little noise.


My only complaint so far is that since I am mowing my grass which will has patches of dormant Bermuda here and there, emptying the bag gets my allergies going. I hope this will be less of an issue in the coming weeks as I start dumping all green clippings.

I remember that when I first got my Toro, my only complaint was that my grass started grower faster in a vain attempt at showing me who was in charge.

The mulch works amazing from what I saw from that lawn service. The lawn looked like the clippings were bagged. It is too wet for me to cut grass right now but I did mulch a strip of grass. The clippings are so fine, it didn't even leave any clippings on my shoes (which we all know get dragged into the house).

David, one thing of note that i'd like to add...


Keep an eye on the blades edge, you will probably need to sharpen it 2 times a season (middle and end). I sharpen mine with an angle grinder. It only takes a few minutes, and makes a world of difference. I use an impact to get the lock nut off.

This is one of the maintenance items that often gets over looked.



Also, change the oil once a season. The oil doesn't cost much, and if you do it every season you'll be good to go. Also, air filter once a season/as required.


These are the maintenance intervals i follow anyhow. Granted a mower isn't a "huge" investment.. But spending 20$ a year on keeping a machine running is well worth the money in my opinion.
