Power is by Honda’s smooth and powerful GCV530 V-twin motor. This offers great fuel consumption with low emissions, low vibration, and long operational life span.
This is a fan powered system that starts at the air intake and forces grass clippings through the cutting deck, up to the grass ejection tunnel and out into the huge catcher. This maximizes the ability for the catcher to hold as much as possible before it needs to be emptied, giving you more time out cutting and less time emptying the catch. As previously mentioned it is also designed to reduce noise levels and also dust levels. Another benefit of this feature is that when there is moisture on the grass it helps push it through to the catch minimizing build up of wet grass clippers on the deck. With this in mind Honda have also included Hose attachment nozzles allowing you to connect your hose directly to the deck to clean it out.
A smooth foot operated Hydrostatic transmission means both of the operators hands are on the steering wheel rather than one on a hand controller. This allows more control making it safer for the operator.
All of the mowers vital systems are clearly shown at a glance thanks to LED technology. Everything from low fuel level, battery voltage and blade engagement are shown. There is also an audible alarm to notify the operator when the catcher is full.
The unit has many safety cut outs to protect the user. A button allows the user to reverse with the blades in operation. Automatic headlights increase the visual safety of the mower and improves visibility in low light conditions.
