Product: Honda HRX217k5 VKA 187 cc Gas 21 in. 4-in-1 Versamow System Lawn Mower

Nice beautiful lawn that gives your yard that edge

It’s amazing how great a lawn looks when it has been properly installed, watered, fertilized and mowed at the proper height. After mowing the lawn at home I would go back several times within that day just to muse over how great everything looks. With each trip, you would probably think I was seeing my lawn for the first time.

Another benefit of grass or sod is that once properly cared for it makes such a great ground cover. Weeds do not stand a chance when a lawn is maintained in the correct way. Only when lawns are stressed because of improper care weeds begin to take over.

A beautifully maintained lawn can also increase the value of your property so the benefits of a healthy manicured lawn can pay off in so many ways and that is just so awesome.

In this review, we will be looking at a lawn mower that has stood the test of time and has been proven to give top performance.

    Very thorough review. I agree with you that it is pricey but I’ve learned over the years that you get what you pay for, especially with lawnmowers. Would you recommend this for relatively small lawns? My front yard is tiny and my back yard is average sized. I think that bad boy may be overkill. I’d like to get your thoughts. Also, what is your opinion on lighting for indoor plants? Is there one type of light that is best? Thank you for the review, talk to you soon!


    1. Norman says:

      Hello, Karl it so good to meet you and thanks for commenting. This lawn mower is a good buy, it will surely serve you for years to come. Good investment. As for lighting for your indoor what you can do is purchase grow lights from your garden center or any hardware store.

      These grow light can be installed just like the regular house light and gives you the seem affect as normal light but because they are specially made for plants your plants will be happy as they grow and thrive with this kind of lighting. Hope this helps and please let me know how it goes. Have a good day.

    Norman, I must say I already have one of these and I love it. This is my second one. The first lasted 15 years and did a lot of mowing on rough ground as our lawn was originally part of a paddock.

    The only thing I don’t like is the safety bar. If you let it go the mower stops. Well as I know how to mow and have never yet done anything that could cause damage to myself. So I strap the bar to the handle to prevent this frequent stopping.

    I suppose it wouldn’t bug me so much if I hadn’t broken my wrist. A result of this is I can only hold the bar so long and then I have to restart (very easily I must admit) but this is annoying.

    Great content and I would recommend this mower to everyone.

    Nice review. I think one day soon the walk-behinds will be obsolete and Roomba-type mowers will be the norm. I have a walk-behind similar to this, and have just recently given up on bagging, Stopping every 10 minutes to empty the thing gets so annoying, so now I use the chute attachment and throw it off to the side! Great site, and good luck.

    1. Norman says:

      Hello Rbtlrdoftkyo so good to meet you, it seems like you know your garden tools also and that is just wonderful. Thanks for commenting and for those kind words. Wishing you the best of success.

    I agree with this review 100%. I have the same reactions when I mow my lawn to perfection. I can’t stop admiring my work every time I walk by like yourself! I have used this mower in the past and I agree with all your pros and cons. One question I do have for you though. Did you find the bag to leak sometimes?

    1. Norman says:

      Hello Shawn F. so nice to meet you and it is good to know that we both have the same reaction when it comes to a nice healthy lawn that is well cut. If allowed to hold more than it suppose to it is possible for this to happen. I am glad that I could help, have a good day.

    Hey Norman!
    You really have worked hard to give all the pros and cons in this review,
    . you have left no stone unturned!
    It is way to big for my postage stamp sized garden!
    Could you do a review on a mini hover mower, that is very lightweight, as I have muscle weakness due to an auto immune disease?
    thanks in anticipation
    ps I’m an avid gardener too!

    1. Norman says:

      Hello, Marcie, it is so nice to meet you and I see that we both have something in common and that is we both love the garden. Sorry to hear about your condition, the good part is that God is still in the healing business and can heal you of whatever ailments you have.

      I will keep you in my prayers and I will also do a review on this mini hover mower just for you. All the best to you my dare lady and have a good day.

    I see you described the Honda mower as the top of the line. I couldn’t agree with you more. About 20 years ago i had a gardening business and we used Honda mowers. They were robust and reliable so much so that I know of two of my mowers are now living out their retirement as yard mowers after five years of commercial work.
    It was a business and time was money. We could not spend time trying to start recalcitrant power tools. This is where the Honda mowers shone. They started immediately every time. as far as I can remember. Also they were not always called upon to mow perfect lawns. These mowers had the torque to knock down grass in lawns that had been severely neglected.
    In the Cons you said the Honda was a bit expensive. I don’t know if it is. You get a garden tool that, if looked after, will last many years. Also the reliability of the machine is very satisfying And then there is the ease of use and the finished product.
    It is easy to see I am a fan of the power tool you said was Top of the Line.

    1. Norman says:

      Hello Bill so nice to see you again, these mowers are truly awesome and can really get the job done. You seem to have good knowledge of these machines. Thanks for commenting and for sharing your vast knowledge. All the best to you and have a good day.

    I must agree that the Honda mower you have reviewed is an excellent lawn mower. Everyone knows that Hondas always start and the engine will last for years. I am still riding 3 wheelers from the 70s and 80s by Honda. This Honda Lawn mower motor will probably last 50 years!

    1. Norman says:

      Hello cheesy so good to meet you, and you are so right, Honda is of top quality and they were built to last. I am happy to see that you are living proof of this fact. Thanks for commenting, all the best to you and have a good day.
