Honda has long been a power player in the landscaping industry with high-quality equipment and tons of options. The type of push mower you choose is going to depend on the features you need, the budget you have to work with, and the type of mowing you plan on doing. Here are some questions that you should ask while you’re surveying Honda’s huge line of push mowers this season.
1. How Much do You Want to Spend?
Honda offers four distinct lines of push mower products. Each one is designed with a different set of budget guidelines in mind. Starting with the HRS line, Honda offers push mowers that are both powerful and reliable at a no frills low price. On the other hand, their HRC line is built with commercial customers in mind and carries a higher price tag along with the heavy duty performance. The HRR and HRX lines offer convenience features and easier operation for a small markup.
2. What Kind of Mowing Will You Be Doing?
Mowers come in a variety of sizes with self-propelled front wheels, adjustable cutting heights, and other features. The size of your lot will determine how wide of a cutting path you will want to make for efficient cutting. If you have uneven terrain or tons of obstacles in your path, being able to adjust the height of your mower, and adding the self-propelled features will reduce the amount of work you have to do while navigating and driving. Consider the HRS216SDA for a good look at all the ways you can simplify your mowing tasks.
3. What Extra Features Do You Want?
Are you going to be mulching in the spring and fall? Do you want the convenience of an electric start so you won’t get burnt out with a traditional recoil starter? The HRX217HZA lets you get started with a simple one-touch electric start option. Smart Drive technology comes standard with many of Honda’s push mowers start from the HRR line all the way up, offering an even bigger step up than regular self-propelled options. Plus, they even have a cruise control feature on some mowers!
All of Honda’s push mowers feature their sturdy OHC residential engine while the HRC commercial line uses the OHV commercial grade engine. They have something for every yard and every budget with their HRS, HRC, HRX and HRR lines.
