I purchased the subject mower at Home Depot on 03/21/2009. By the time mowing season started in earnest their 30 day return period had expired.
By the time I spoke to the Honda Customer Service people in July we had noticed some peculiar things the mower was doing, and the mowing results were unacceptable. (brush cut). See attached pictures.
In July, at their direction, I put the mower in my truck and took it to a HONDA repair shop. Their attempts resulted in a very small improvement in the weight distribution.
The mower is still “teetering” between the RF and LR wheels. (probably a WARPED housing). As a result, when the mower is put into motion, INERTIA causes the CG to shift to the rear, in this case the RR (right rear). It, the RR sinks, the LF raises up, and the result is a very poor mowing job. Mulching is almost non-existent.
I’ve spent a lot of time attempting to remedy this problem .
Wrote a letter to the HONDA Service
Representatives telling them the above. They wrote back told me to take it to the shop again. I'm through...off to COURT we go!!!!!!!!
