Hi all, I just purchased the Honda 21" HRX217HYA mower from my local Home Depot, and upon un-boxing found grass clippings in box and under deck indicating obvious use of the machine. The packaging appeared fully intact. Is it common for Honda (or other manufacturers) to test their equipment on actual grass before packaging for customer purchase? Or has this mower been used and returned by a customer? I'm hesitant to start up and test this $700 machine, even if it's under warranty, if there's something seriously wrong with it (I don't think they'll allow a return at that point). I live a good distance from most repair centers, so my time and mileage for warranty repair is of concern.
