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.

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.
