We do have a few though, and im sidehilling those most of the time. The mower will climb them also. Just easier on me to sidehill.

It handles side hills fairly well too. I can side hill a few places where the exmark 30 can't. Don't get me wrong, I love my exmark 30 also....but the Honda is easier to side hill a steeper slope.
Equipment Stolen/ Please Help and watch for:
6.5x12 Dual Ramp Trailer with 3 place trimmer rack and two blower racks
2012 21" Honda HRC-216 mower
2013 Exmark Commercial 30
2014 Exmark Lazer Z S Series EFI 52
2008 Stihl FS250R Trimmer
2010 Stihl FS90R Trimmer
200? Stihl FC75 Edger
2014 Stihl KM130R edger and trimmer shafts

2013 Stihl BR600 Backpack blower

We find most HRR and HRX units have the rpm set extremely low out of the box and have to adjust them. Andrew, Dallas, GA
What would you recommend the RPM be set at?

Can you find out the answer to the RPM setting? amosslmope may not be following this old thread. I plan on buying a honda mower later this winter.

Depends on the specific model....but generally, the HRC should be set at 3,100 +/-50 rpm.

Caveat: I work for Honda, but the preceding is my opinion alone.
