Designed from the ground up, the Honda HRN lawn mower lineup replaces the company’s popular HRR Series and features four major areas of innovation: more power and torque, a rugged design, intuitive controls, and easier operation and serviceability—all with the goal of making the task of grooming grass more productive and more enjoyable for landscapers and homeowners.
Increased Mower Efficiency
Powered by the new Honda GCV170 engine, Honda HRN models deliver nine percent more power and 18 percent more torque than HRR models, allowing the user to power through thick, heavy grass and enjoy a smooth, even cut. What’s more, the new Honda GCV170 engine offers improved maintenance and usability through a larger fuel tank spout, easier oil changes and reliable, dependable starting and re-starting. A smart engine layout makes for easy access to the spark plug and an optimized air cleaner that can be changed without tools.
Mind Over Matter
The Honda HRN Series is designed with an array of intuitive controls for even smoother operating than the outgoing Honda HRR models. Technologically innovative features begin with an improved design of the Adjustable Smart Drive that allows for ease of speed variation with a press of a wide paddle control on the handlebar. In addition, a 3-in-1 Clip Director lever, located on the side of the engine cowling, controls an entry shutter between the lawn mower deck and the grass bag, allowing the operator to easily select either mulching or bagging options without tools or attachments.
Other features of HRN mowers include a simplified cut height control system consisting of a new dual-lever height adjustment. 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. And a two-way releasing rear wheel ratchets increase maneuverability by the reducing effort required to turn or pivot in tight areas.
Four new Honda HRN216 models—HRN216PKA, HRN216VKA, HRN216VLA and the HRN216VYA—feature a range of options and choices for consumers. Pricing and availability of these models is available at https://powerequipment.honda.com/lawn-mowers.
