Default Honda mower question

The thread on reel mowers got me thinking about Honda mowers. I have a 1993 hrm210 self propelled mower ( not reel type). The thing is a beast and runs like it always has. The two speed transmission has developed issues and I need to replace the transmission . Does anyone have a source for old Honda mower parts? The usual sources no longer have this transmission and I don't think they are made any longer. I could convert it to a push mower but the hills are a getting to be a pain. Her's hoping the brain trust has the answer.

You might find an independent small lawnmower shop that has some old junk mowers around. Probably a shot in the dark.

You've got your money's worth. Why don't you go and spring for a new HR217 model with the plastic deck? Home Depot sells'em. I've been through 5 Honda push mowers since 1990, and my new one is the best of them all. I think it was under $600 with the grasscatcher. I do mow on a hill I can barely stand on, and it's in a class of its own.

Oh man, I am so sorry. I just set one out on my front yard with a "free scrap" sign on it because the motor threw a valve last fall. It was gone about 3 hours ago. No joke.

My dad has a Honda mower that has been flawless since 1995. Think the oil has been changed once. Water cooled engine

Like most things...they just build them better.

Though mine is a craftsman with a 24 horse Briggs that gas also been flawless. 650 hours on it so far.
