With the right lawnmower in your arsenal, you can put less time into garden work but yield better results. This heavy-duty Honda HRX217HYU petrol lawnmower features durable, innovative features designed for long-term, rigorous use. Renowned for its uncompromising stance on user safety, Honda continues to impress with the Honda HRX217HYU Self-Propelled Petrol Lawn Mower. This mower is equipped with Blade Brake Technology, which stops the blade within 3 seconds upon release of the handle, while the engine is running. Innovative engine brake technology ensures that you can safely walk away from the mower when needed and stop and start at the drop of a hat. The lightweight NeXite 21-inch cutting deck enhances maneuverability and features a sturdy construction that can handle rigorous use. The catcher for this mower sits at a whopping 88-liters, more than enough for you to clip away for longer periods with fewer breaks to empty the catcher. The durable wheels offer excellent traction in a variety of lawn conditions. The large wheels will tackle tough conditions with ease, and they will last and last. This impressive lawnmower by Honda is as much of a handy home mower as it is a smart business investment for contractors.
A 10% increase in torque was important in the case of a walk-behind lawnmower such as the HRX, as the size of the engine and its torque capabilities relate directly to the ability of the machine to tackle tough jobs and produce a clean, even cut. As the engine is responsible for generating the torque power on a lawn mower, more torque means more force is delivered to the blades, which results in easier and faster cutting—especially in heavy, thick grass where stalling is more prevalent. In addition to delivering more torque, the Honda GCV200 weighs, on average, 6% less than the GCV190. A brand new Brake Blade clutch (with 14% more capacity) has been designed to cope with the increased power. Honda’s Blade Brake system safely stops the blades from spinning, allowing users to step away from the mower and keep it running in order to move items out of the way, empty the bag, or take a break, all without having to switch the engine off.
The new engine is more streamlined and more compact than other engines in the same class. The design of the Honda GCV200 also features the CycloFlow design, which strengthens turbulence in the cylinder and provides more stable combustion. The result is greater resistance to lower quality fuel and ease of starting, along with a smoother idle.
The Honda Auto Choke System (ACS) on the new GCV200 engine allows for dependable starts, regardless of hot or cold weather conditions. This automatic, user-friendly system eliminates the need for levers and cables and once the engine is running, the ACS automatically adjusts to the optimal operating position.
Honda is renowned for its uncompromising stance on user safety, and keeping with that approach, the Mow-Safe Technology® inherent in the HRX217HYU is bound to impress in both residential and commercial settings.
It includes Blade Brake technology, which stops the blade within three seconds of releasing the handle, allowing the engine to continue running. This technology allows you to step away from the mower to clear away hazards, empty the catcher or just take a quick break, without having to restart the engine.
Handy if you’re pushing for long hours, the HRX217HYU is fully Self-Propelled by Hydrostatic Cruise Control. This represents simple, precise speed control that’s fully adjustable from 0-6 kp/h. You’ll save your back, shoulders and arms by letting the mower do the work for you!
Also featured on the HRX217 is Honda’s exclusive twin blade MicroCut® System, which uses four cutting surfaces instead of two. The results are evident in the ultra fine clippings and superior mulching that you’ll get.
Because the clippings are finer than on a regular mower, you’ll be able to mow up to 30% further before you have to empty the catcher bag. Again, this is designed with you, the user, in mind. The perfect cut has never been easier.
