Hrx217 Tips, Repairs, Maintenance

Try this,


216 is a better mower, 217 makes more money.

Lower maintenance
Better cut better catch
Lasts longer
Cheaper to run
Single height adjustment
Swing blades

Mulches badly
Cumbersome mulch plug
Slower and can’t shift without getting off the drive

Mulches great
Slips between mulching and catching in about 2 seconds
You can constantly change speeds, through the thick bit or around trees

Hates dust
Is a lawnmower not an everything mower
Height adjusters are a (fixable) pain
Cuts pretty bad, no complaints though
Won’t last forever
Your always working on or replacing blades/bag/drive cogs/air/wheels
