Sounds like you've got your mind made up on one model, but check out Honda's web page to see all of 'em before you decide. (www.hondapowerequipment.com)Best price I have found is $429.00 at Home Depot. Going to buy in March. Can't really see HD lowering their price. Any ideas?
Exactly.Where the dealer can has a bit of an advantage is in the future; when you need a blade sharpened or replaced, or worn out a tire, the dealer will have those parts and will sell and install them for you. Home Depot usually sends mowers out to central repair center and usually only has air filters and spark plugs for service parts in-stock.
Excellent!! Great to hear the dealer came through for you!Went to local dealer and bought the HRR2167VKA for $399.00. Tried it out there and was impressed. Thanks guys, it does pay to check out local dealers. Advantages were lower price, trying for fit, full tank of gas, and already put together.
Ron, that's a HRR217VKA (K7 version). Records indicate it was first put into service on 2/1/12, so the mower is still under factory warranty. Suggest you have a Honda dealer inspect and test. Let me know if you need help locating a dealer in your area.MZCG-8249551
ron815;8665I was just commenting on the effort it took pushing forward without using the Smart Drive. [/QUOTE said:Gotcha. I would think the Honda should roll forward as easily as a Honda, but maybe not. Maybe the next time you are near a dealer or Home Depot, you might want to find the same model as your Honda and compare roll-foward effort. Just a thought.
Caveat: I work for Honda, but the preceding was my opinion alone.
