Yes my Honda is a bit on the old side, but it served as the trim mower for 23 years when i had a larger property and a Deere. We recently moved to a smaller place, Deere is gone, and the Honda gets regular duty again. Anyway, I have to assume the new models mulch much better. It's the only thing that disappoints about the old Honda. Anyone moved from an older unit like mine to a HRX?? Comments???
