Honda recently released six new walk-behind mowers at dealer conferences. All feature 53cm (21”) cutting decks, are powered by Honda engines and come with a standard two-year domestic warranty.
“Now everyone from the backyard hero to the professional contractor can find a Honda perfect for them,” Ray Briffa said.
Designed with the residential users in mind, the two HRR216 models (Push & Self-Propelled) both feature Honda’s new ‘Clip Director’ 3-in-1 system, which allows users to either mulch, bag or discharge clippings with just a single touch. This easy flexibility will appeal to consumers that take pride in their lawns.
Two HRX217 Mulch & Catch models (recoil & electric start) provide a balance between domestic flexibility and commercial power for users with medium-to large yards and price-conscious contractors. With a large 88L catcher (the biggest Honda has ever offered) and the lightweight but incredibly tough NeXite cutting deck, the mowers are lightweight but tough enough to handle the most demanding of terrains.
Powered by Honda’s GSV160, HRC216 is equipped with Honda’s ‘MicroCut’ twin-blade system. The double-cut action produces clippings so fine that professional contractor can fit up to 30% more clippings in every bag. The HRC216 features mulching capability, a steel deck and an 88L bag catcher. Together HRC216 allows more lawns to be mown with less time is wasted emptying the catcher.
The HRS216 Ute completes the new mowers. Its side-throw and mulching options enables users to return their grass clippings back into the soil with every mow. Its competitive price it represents a new benchmark for Honda, offering more people than ever the chance to own a Honda.
“With 17 mowers now wearing the Honda badge,” Honda Power Equipment GM Victor Colcott said, “no matter what kind of lawn you’ve got, there’s a Honda just for you. Domestic or commercial, there’s never been this much choice in Honda’s range.”
Victor concluded by reminding listeners that the final piece in the Honda offering was Honda’s network of 450 Dealers Australia-wide.
