Guest's review of Honda HRX 476 QX

★★☆☆☆

“Unmaneuverable, unreliable and doesn’t self-propel well.”

Written on: 01/03/2020

I bought my Honda HRX476QY in 2016 and threw it away lat year. Expensive mistake. My lawn is relatively flat but as the grass bag filled the mower became progressively more sluggish until it couldn’t self-propel. The roller turned OK, but as it is shiny steel with no tread it simply ground a dent in the grass. Heavy to push too! Also the rear roller is not split so it is a real struggle to turn at the end of a stretch and you need lots of room to get it round. Impossible next to a flower bed. The drive required adjusting frequently to prevent slipping and it’s not easy to DIY as it requires considerable dismantling (and if you DIY there’s no warranty, so £100 every time thank you). A valve stuck several times preventing starting and on one occasion cutting out mid-cut - another double journey to the agent and the hassle of getting a hundredweight into and out of the boot. Even when working well it is so slow!! Runs quickly on the patio but very poor on the grass - down in part to the roller slipping I suppose.

Forget the pizazz of the name - it doesn’t even come close to a Mountfield at a third of the price.
