We recently updated some of our 21" machines from the tried and true Toro to the newly designed Honda. We went to the source, fellow maintenance compainies, for feedback on the hondas they had been running for years, all good. Very few issues. Very few problems with bent cranks. Wheels don't bend. Adjusters don't wear out. Well we have seven of the wonderful new hondas, and five that have had issues with bent crankshafts already. Given one of the five was user error, but the rest, give me a break. I know of at least one other company in our area that had two with problems. Honda is claiming nothing is wrong and they haven't seen any increase in the number of problems from the previous years. In addition they developed a larger bag with perhaps the weakest tabs ever made attemting to keep the bag on the machine. Most of ours have been bent so badly that they just broke off. They say that they are working on a fix for that one. In their design they came up with something else really interesting, self dismounting tires. That's right, the tires come off the rims all by themselves while mowing. This is more apparent on warmer days and while mowing across slopes or on hills in general. Has anyone else had these or any other problems with this "newly redesigned" machine?
