Yes, Honda made three 17" mowers. The HR173 had a gas engine mounted on the plastic deck. The HR17E had and electric motor on the same plastic deck as the HR173 and the HR17 had the same gas engine as the HR173 mounted on an aluminum deck.

Here's what the HR173 model indication means:

HR - Honda Rotary
17 - 17"
3 - GV100 engine

The other two 17" models were the HR17PDA and HR17E. The HR17 is the same on these as the HR173.

The PDA stands for:
P - Push model
D - Recoil start
A - USA market

The E stands for:
E - Electric

Yep, I had to look at that label on mine several times before it sunk in. The handle switch carries a Briggs and Stratton part number too. Unfortunately, it is NLA.

That's kind of goofy! Most people don't realize that Briggs makes a lot of electric motors. The engineering club at my school has an electric car with a Briggs electric motor.
