I bought this mower after reading a review online from someone who lives in a similar area of the country. It said the mower was VERY good at cutting tall/wet grass. We have had rain so much I haven't been able cut the grass on a regular basis. The grass was tall and WET (muddy ground as well). The mower worked flawlessly. Moved through the grass with ease and only plugged a couple of times. Best mower I have owned. If I had to find one thing that I don't like (VERY SMALL) I would say the discharge chute bends if you cut with the tall grass is on the side of the chute. Not a problem just a VERY small nuisance.

Only Two Improvements needed
I have been mowing for a long time. So the perspective is I am 63, in very good shape and mow my Fescue based yard 2-3 times a week which is 100x125 feet. Some say I have an OCD about my yard. Overall this is a very good mower for the short time i have owned it. I am hoping it does not suffer the transmission problems other highend mowers suffer from. The two things that I need to address is Cutting Height, the maximum Mower height is about 1 inch too short for my Kansas cutting needs... I have it raised to the end of the stops and bolted to get it as high as possible but still not high enough. The second is the hand propulsion grips are too stiff, my arms get tired of holding the handles.

My old mower finally 'gave up the ghost'. I did a bunch of looking for a replacement and found the perfect new one for me. It has done a great job and I am very happy...starts on one pull, cuts great, is lightweight and fuel efficient! The Honda motor is the best I have used. Thanks for a great product!

Mower works great! Lawn now looks great also.

Runs great thanks to Honda. Really reliable as far as mowers go. The drive system is great, especially on a hill, with no sluggishness at all. Only downfall is with the bagger off and the side discharger off, in the mulch configuration, it does spit grass to the rear and back; giving you some dirty shoes.

Great all around product
I mow about an acre with slight hills and this thing tracks great. cuts evenly, and does the hills with ease.

I LIKE MINE!!
very little assembly. It started first pull right out of the box.i never had a self propelled lawnmower so cutting the lawn is alot nicer not having to push the mower.i have no cons about it. I really like it a lot!!! worth every penny!!! sure beats my 20 year old scotts mower!

i love this mower
I needed a mower to mow hillside, this mower does well. It does start by the second pull, as advertised. The first time I used this mower the grass was very tall and this one mowed fine. I definitely would buy this mower again.
