There are three HRN216 models to choose from in this new HRN range. All models are available NOW.
OVERVIEWThe all-new HRN mowers offer a powerful new GCV170 engine, rugged design and are packed with features that provide an easy, comfortable mowing experience and the smooth, groomed finish lawn enthusiasts aspire to.
Judging by the sound of the HRNs new engine too, it will be perfect to tackle thick, heavy grass as it delivers more power and torque than any other mower in its class. Music to the ears of those who know the struggles of lugging a gutless mower around the yard in the hot summer sun.
Maintenance is also a breeze with the HRNs as they offer a larger than most fuel tank spout, easier oil changes and reliable, dependable starting and re-starting.Under the deck, they all feature precision-crafted blades with the exclusive Honda Twin Blade MicroCut System for exact cutting and fine mulching at any height. Finer grass clippings make better mulch and, when bagged, take less capacity in the grass bag.
Two of the HRN variants available (the VYU and VKU) have technologically innovative features like the Adjustable Smart Drive system that allows for ease of speed variation with a press of a wide paddle control on the handlebar. Both of these mowers are self-propelled.
NEW GCV170 ENGINE
More power and torque relate directly to the ability of the machine to tackle tough mowing conditions while still producing the clean, even cut prized by people who care for their lawns. More torque means more force is being delivered to the blades, which results in easier and faster cutting—especially in heavy, thick grass where stalling can occur. The power and torque of the new Honda GCV170 engine also provide more stable RPMs for greater consistency in cutting, mulching and bagging across a variety of lawn conditions.
AUTO CHOKE EASY STARTING
No engine choke required! Just start the mower and go! The new Honda GCV170 includes the exclusive Honda Auto Choke™ system. With a simplified structure and fewer parts, this user-friendly system is automatic, eliminating levers and cables. The engine starts easily, whether cold or hot, and is ready for immediate mowing. Once the engine is running, the Auto Choke automatically returns to an optimal operating position. The Honda GCV170 engine also features the Honda exclusive CycloFlow™ design, which produces increased turbulence in the cylinder and more stable combustion, resulting in easy starting and greater resistance to lower quality fuel.
BLADE BRAKE – HRN216VYU
The HRN216VYU has blade brake technology that stops the mower blades within three seconds of the operator releasing the handle, whilst the engine continues to run. This feature means you can safely leave the mower running while you clear away any obstacles, empty the catcher or take a quick break, all without needing to restart the engine.
ENGINE BRAKE - HRN216VKU
The HRN216VKU offers engine brake technology, which stops the engine within three seconds of the operator releasing the handle. You can easily walk away from the mower as needed to clear away any obstacles, empty the catcher or take a quick break.
DUAL LEVEL HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT SYSTEM
With just two levers, the operator can make quick and convenient adjustments for seven different cutting heights, making it fast and easy to take a little off the top, make a deep cut or mow at standard maintenance heights.
The Honda HRN Range is designed to make quick work of grooming grass, leaving more free time for the operator and ensuring they are low maintenance is key! The wide fuel spout along with an elevated oil spout makes it easy to fill with fuel or change the oil—reducing the potential for spillage. The design also features a smart engine layout with easy access to the spark plug, an optimized air cleaner that can be changed without tools.
8" HIGH TRACTION WHEELS
The HRN wheels offer excellent traction in a variety of mowing conditions. The large wheels will tackle rough and tough conditions with ease and they will last and last.
