Honda HRR216K9VKA Review

The Honda self-propelled HRR216K9VKA embodies the reason behind the manufacturer’s reputation. According to its managers, this machine is designed to perform harder and longer than any of its competitors. Don’t think this product is perfect either, because it has its flaws.

The Honda self-propelled HRR216K9VKA embodies the reason behind the manufacturer’s reputation. According to its managers, this machine is designed to perform harder and longer than any of its competitors. Don’t think this product is perfect either, because it has its flaws.

Its main features are its Twin MicroCut blades, variable speed for the front wheel with SmartDrive technology, highly sturdy steel cover, 160CC Honda GCV engine, unloading bag and a 12-inch cut surface.

I don’t usually compare individual lawn mowers for a good reason, whether you get a good product for your money, it all depends on your individual needs and preferences. Patios usually vary in size and dimensions depending on the owner. So not necessarily a user has to look for the largest and most expensive lawn mower on the market, but look for a product that fits what they really need.

In this case, an exception is required. The honda HRR’s competition is in fact the Honda HRX, which is similar.

The HRR’s engine is a Honda GCV160 while the HRX is a Honda GCV190. The HRR cover is 21-inch steel, while the HRX is a 21-inch Nexite compound. The HRR is automatic with 5-speed Smart Drive, while the HRX is Manual Hydrostatic Select Drive. Ignition on the HRR is manually pulling a rope, while the HRX is electrically initiated with a button.

The advantage of the HRX engine is summarized to 5 millimetres wider reaching a size of 30CC with a few extra horsepower. Both are very powerful and rugged engines, but testing the HRR after testing the HRX, I can certify that the latter does not lack power and can easily match anything the HRX can do, for a lower price. Keep in mind that this machine roars. It produces 98 dB of sonic pollution and may not like your neighbors very much. Get yourself some extra bills on a pair of ear protectors.

Comparing the covers, I understand the preference over HRX because its body is lighter. But gasoline mowers are currently better for larger spaces with hills and uneven terrain, where electric mowers can’t walk easily. The Honda HRR weighs just 84 pounds and can do any job as well.

Selecting one transmission over the other is a matter of preferences, but the Honda HRR’s SmartDrive automatic variable speed is well suited for the GCV160, and allows you to take advantage of its full power. This is a high-performance mower. However, thumb controls feel weird, but it gently advances from 4MPH to maximum speed and slows down under command until braking. Even by turning it off, the HRR has excellent thrust power. I have no complaints regarding the HYDROtransmission of the HRX or Honda’s Drive Manual Speed Control.

The HRR slingshot has only one problem, but for many it is very a problem that could significantly limit its appeal to buyers of self-propelled mowers looking for a powerful equipment, and is that it is difficult to climb on sloping terrain. There are several types of terrain where not having to push your mower is necessary. The HRR’s accidental slips are due to its inadequate 8-inch wheels, which make you think that only a couple more inches and wheels would be enough to beat the terrain.

Gasoline mowers require some regular maintenance to make sure they will last over time, from keeping new oil, spark plugs and fuel to sharpening the blades a couple of times each season. Regardless, the Honda HRR can be used quite pleasantly to be a relatively powerful model. The 41-inch handle is long enough to make the mower easy to use at any height, and mitigates strong vibrations. Weighing 84 pounds, the HRR isn’t exactly a lightweight model, but I never felt it get out of my control when handling it, nor did I feel it heavy.

It has a small defect, which is that sometimes it costs to turn on manually. Honda’s auto-choke usually doesn’t give problems and turns on perfectly, but in this particular model it’s usually somewhat stubborn. However, what we are referring to here is that you will need one or two extra pulls to be able to start the engine, for many it should not be a big problem.

I must say that I have tried mowers that cut better than the Honda HRR, but there are not many. MicroCuttwin blades cut with great precision and power, much better than single-blade blades. This results in a cut with precise consistency from start to finish. It has three options available to deposit the debris, you can unload through the side hopper, maximizing the grass stored in the removeable waste bag.

Gasoline mowers tend to require more maintenance than their electrical counterparts,and the Honda HRR is no exception. However, it’s not much time you have to invest in this task. You should sharpen the blades at least twice each season of mowing lawns, including before saving the equipment for the winter season. Change spark plugs before every start of years. Change the oil after the first five hours of use, and then follow the manufacturer’s guide. Like Honda’s other products, it comes with a three-year warranty that should cover any incident that may occur, or some emergency replacement.

The Zone Start System brakes the blade three seconds after the control lever is released, but has other safety measures. The controls on this mower are installed in such a way that the engine cannot be restarted from any other party except within the designated operator area behind the handle.

If you have to choose between the Honda HRR and the Honda HRX, I recommend you choose the HRR and save $40. It costs around $430, and you might get a lawn mower with similar characteristics for a lower price, but you already know Honda for its incredible durability and great performance of its products. The HRR is not perfect, but getting the job done right. It’s definitely a great way to invest your money.
