Honda Hydrostatic 21" mower question

    I recently bought a used Honda Harmony HRB215HXA Hydrostatic drive mower. I've never used a hydro so don't know anything about them, but the rear wheels click when moving it forward with the engine off, is this ok? Is it just the drive pawls?

    Thanks for any info,
    -Ryan

    mine does click also, got it off craigslist WITH a crappy blower, trimmer with edger and hedge clipper atatchments for 150. sold the blower and trimmer stuff for 150 so... it is one of the best craigslist finds that i can take credit for. enjoy your mower, they aren't ultra powerful but they are hard to beat.

    It is ok for the back wheels to click. This is part of the drive.

    Thanks for the replies, just wanted to make sure.

    loafycleetus you got a great deal, I paid $200 for mine by itself but I'm impressed with it. I haven't used very many mowers but it's the best I've used so far.

    coloryan, I almost felt bad about it but hey, it's not my fault they asked too little. I bet the man it belonged to rolled in his grave. Still, at 200 it's a deal! Great mowers are hard to find anymore.
