Honda Power Equipment introduced the newly redesigned HRX Series of lawn mowers. The HRX Series, Honda’s most premium residential lawn mower models, now feature the powerful new GCV200 engine that delivers 10 percent more power and torque than the GCV190 it replaces, along with design and technology features that produce a clean, smooth cut. The redesigned Honda HRX lawn mowers are the first Honda mowers to incorporate this all-new GCV200 engine.
First introduced in 2003, the Honda HRX Series pioneered the Versamow System with Clip Director. For the first time on any lawn mower, the HRX Clip Director could easily enable bagging, mulching or simultaneous bagging and mulching of grass clippings in varying degrees through 10 separate settings — all without separate tools. The Honda Versamow System with Clip Director was designed to be a complete mowing system delivering the ultimate in flexibility. The past 15 years of Honda research and development, combined with feedback from HRX users, have driven new advancements for this mower line. Today’s HRX Series of lawn mowers is designed to deliver the ultimate in flexibility and the most satisfying lawn mowing experience.
The redesigned Honda HRX Series lawn mowers feature three significant areas of technological and operational enhancements:
- An all-new Honda GCV200 engine delivers 10 percent more power and torque to the mower’s blades to cut taller and thicker grass without stalling. The newly redesigned Honda HRX Series is the company’s first lawn mower line to incorporate the new GCV200 engine.
- A streamlined engine layout saves time by making it easier for the user to fill the fuel tank, monitor and change the oil, access the sparkplug and air cleaner, allowing for faster, easier and reduced routine maintenance.
- Modern styling — reflecting similar sleek, aerodynamic designs can be seen across other Honda product lines, including automobiles, motorcycles and even jets.
Honda engineers incorporated changes into the HRX lawn mower line to provide a more powerful mowing experience for the user, while grooming grass to a carpet-like finish. Like the original Honda HRX Series, the newly enhanced HRX Series features the Honda Versamow System with Clip Director. This system features a lever, located behind the engine cowling, that operates a sliding door between the lawn mower deck and the grass bag, allowing the operator to easily choose — or change — the preferred mowing option. The configuration also offers a setting for leaf shredding that recirculates leaves until they are small enough to pass into the rear-discharge grass bag. The operator can perform all of these functions smoothly and without the tools or attachments required on most conventional lawn mowers. Like all Honda lawn mowers, the Honda HRX offers reliable features designed to provide years of superior performance.
