HRX217HYU Honda Lawnmower
Honda research and development, combined with feedback from HRX users, have driven new advancements for this innovative upgrade for 2019. Today’s HRX Series is designed to deliver an ultimately user-friendly platform, which provides the most satisfying lawn mowing experience yet. Beginning with the power plant, the HRX Series are the first Honda mowers to incorporate an all-new GCV200 engine, the most powerful lawnmower engine available in the Honda range, delivering a power (HP) increase of almost 12%, compared to the GCV190 it replaces. 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.
