      I purchased after extensive online product research - mainly for Honda Quality and I was not disappointed. Followed the simple un-crating instructions, added oil and fuel and started about 2/3 on the first pull - excellent. With regard to mowing - this was the first cut of the season and, unfortunately, the home's previous owner did not maintain their lawn in the fall (I purchased my home in late-November 2015) - below are my observations: CUT: Excellent, the mower powered through even the really high stuff (over 6 inches) DRIVE WHEELS: Very good; I live on hilly terrain and the drive-assist and larger wheels made this a lot easier; also notable is the auto-clutch feature making maneuvering this beast not too much work HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT: Excellent - lawns looks even and plush (make sure you do this BEFORE using your new mower as the front and back wheels are set differently in order to get it in the box properly!) BAGGING/MULCHING: Excellent; I set mine for a 60 bag/40 mulch for the first cut and somehow the mower worked. What was even more impressive was that there were no visible 'clip lines' trailing the mower UNIT WEIGHT: This is a heavy unit; this is OK for me (6'/200+ pounds) but I doubt a 125 pound person would find this unit easy to use on anything but a flat lawn. As mentioned earlier, the drive-assist does help on hills and rolling terrain but it still requires a lot of human power to get it up those steeper slopes SPEED CONTROL: Excellent/really cool; you just walk and dial in your pace and it just works perfectly, slows down a little on hills, but just about close to perfect FIT & FINSH: Excellent and another reason I bought Honda VALUE: Tough call on this because it is expensive; I factored in the standard 5-year warranty (Honda added an extra year if you purchased in March!) so you have to consider that in the cost. As well, their engines are well-known to just work and they are very efficient so we'll see how I feel about this mower in a few years LOUDNESS: Relatively mild, not too loud. It isn't the quietest mower available but it is very quiet in comparison to my neighbors lawn mowers. I measured about 82 db - just loud enough to warrant ear plugs as a precaution Overall, I would rate this as a 'Best Buy'; yes, it is expensive when comparing it to numerous other mowers available, but I've come to the conclusion that Honda has figured out how to make a reliable mower that produces expected results. Buy Once/Cry Once is my dad's favorite saying so with that wisdom, I'll recommend this product. G.
