TACKLE THE TOUGH JOBS

Honda research and development, combined with feedback from HRX users, have driven new advancements for this innovative upgrade. 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. 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.

AUTO CHOKE

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.

SAFETY FIRST

Honda is renowned for its uncompromising stance on user safety, and keeping with that approach, the Mow-Safe Technology® inherent in the HRX217HZU and 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.

TOUGH NEXITE DECK

The HRX217 features an incredibly tough NeXite™ 21” cutting deck, which is lightweight but tough enough to handle even the most trying of Australian conditions. This high impact-resistant material does not dent, rust or corrode, and the lightweight design means you can easily manoeuvre it around your lawn.

HYDROSTATIC CRUISE CONTROL

Handy if you’re pushing for long hours, the HRX217 mowers are 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!

MICRO CUT SYSTEM

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.

HRX217HZU ELECTRIC START 

The major point of difference between the HRX217HZU and the HRX217HYU is the inclusion of a key start to get the mower up and running. Effortless in operation, the self-charging key start removes the need for “plug-in” charging like other battery-operated or electric mowers.

VERSAMOW

The HRX217 features Honda’s revolutionary Versamow System™, which allows you to mulch, bag, discharge, or shred leaves – or even a combination of mulching and bagging! Just slide the convenient Clip Director® knob to choose how much grass is bagged or mulched. It’s the ultimate in convenience and versatility. Want to mulch, but worried about leaving clumps? No problem. The Versamow System™ helps you to mulch or partially mulch even in severe conditions. Just adjust the 10 position Clip Director to the right setting for your lawn. The Versamow System™ makes leaf shredding easy. Tiny pieces minimise the use of leaf bags for collecting debris. No attachments or tools are necessary.
