Has anyone tried the new HRX mowers from Honda ? They have the best looking cut I have ever seen from a rotary blade 21 "mower ! The mower deck is made of an injection molded super tough plastic. The deck discharges through a tunnel to the rear [not the side]. There is an adjustable sliding gate in this tunnel that you can close off to mulch, or open wide up to rear bag the grass. The trick thing is that you can partially open the gate, and the mower will mulch maybe 75% of the clippings, and bag 25% of the grass. Now, while the grass is growing sooo fast, a mulcher can't get all the clippings chopped up and hidden down in the lawn, and you have all these trails and wads of grass laying on the lawn. If you bag it all, there is a mountain of grass to haul and dispose of. The Honda HRX will mulch as much grass as can be accepted back into the lawn, and it will only bag the remainder that would have been visible on top. The result is a lawn that appears to have been all bagged, but just a fraction of the total clippings to be hauled away. The blade system is a "double cut" type with two blades stacked on the shaft, and it mulches the grass down to the size of cole slaw ! If you want to discharge the grass [no mulch,no bag] there is a wide panel chute that drops down over the rear tunnel and rear discharges the clippings the full width of the mower, so there is no thick "windrow" of grass on the lawn even then. This mower has the Honda Hydrostat drive to the rear wheels, so it is super easy to control , and there is a blade brake clutch , so there is no need to stop the engine and restart it constantly. If you need a good 21" mower - try out , or demo one of these - you won't believe it till you've tried one !
