    I own 2 hondas one like yours with 2 speed,and a 4hp homeowner, never a problem.
  3. I have the HRC216SXA (gear driven) I love it. The machine has been very reliable for me.

    I have a honda 21" commercial that was bought new in the early 80's. Still cranks up on the first pull. I have no idea of the hours on this machine.

    glad to see that you guys have had such great luck. I on the other hand have no been so fortunate. In my experienes the drive system has been to slow for my pace, and some what unreliable. Also the handles do seem to be a bit rickety. But i do have to say - 1st pull every time:)

    - just my experiences, good luck
