I really like my 2014 Honda HRX217HYA, proper model number HRX2174HYA. It is currently my primary 21" for light duty commercial mowing. However, since I got it last August 2014, I have wondered why the lower speeds on the transmission barely work. Its not a problem with the gearing itself, but maybe the belt, or possibly the cable needs to be adjusted on the shifting baffle and lever to get it to respond at lower speeds? Any ideas? I think its the cable needing to be adjusted.
