Honda's HRX217HZU Mulch & Catch lawnmower (Electric Start) represents another step forward in the pursuit of the perfect mower.
Handy if you’re pushing for long hours, the HRX217HZU 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!Honda is renowned for its uncompromising stance on user safety, and keeping with that approach, the HRX217HZU 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.
The HRX217HZU 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.And when it comes to performance, the HRX217HZU is powered by the long-lasting Honda GCV190 engine. This premium residential engine is the lightest in its class, incorporating Honda’s Advanced Four-Stroke Technology.This means the HRX217 will run powerfully and quietly, with minimal fuel consumption – good for you and good for the environment.
The major point of difference between this 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.What’s more, the adjustable throttle control allows engine speed to be adjusted to idle when emptying the grass bag or transporting the mower. The blades will stop but the engine keeps going, so when you’re ready to mow again simply disengage the blade brake and away you go!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.
The HRX217HZU 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.And the Versamow System™ makes leaf shredding easy. Tiny pieces minimize the use of leaf bags for collecting debris. No attachments or tools are necessary.
