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

i found an HR17E in my backyard when i moved to my new house. This thing looked like it spent quite a few years outdoor (cold winter and rainy summer). i first thought this thing will never work by the look of it...but damn. Never had a lawn mower that cutt so good!

I have two of these Honda HR173 that where given to me and I can not get either to kick over for me, I've replaced to Carby and the Coil & it still won work and I'm stuck why I've repaired over 150 lawn mowers but these things are driving me nuts :mad:
