Easy-starting, fuel efficient, and powerful, Honda's premium residential GCV200 engine delivers even more power and torque than its predecssor. The result? Superior mowing performance, and easier and faster cutting, even in heavy, thick grass. Increased power also means increased durability, providing years of reliable service.
Easily adjust the mower's speed to your stride by rotating the speed adjust dial. Then engage the Select Drive® control for intuitive, comfortable speed control. Variable speed from 0 to 4 mph.
Honda's Roto-Stop® blade stop system allows you to step away from the mower, without having to stop and restart the engine. Move items out of the way, empty the bag, or take a break, without having to restart your mower.
Honda's revolutionary Versamow System? allows you to mulch, bag, discharge, and shred leaves - or even a combination of mulching and bagging! Just slide the convenient Clip Director® knob to choose how much grass is bagged or mulched. No tools or costly attachments are needed. It's the ultimate in convenience and versatility.
Honda's exclusive twin blade MicroCut System® uses four cutting surfaces that result in ultra fine clippings for superior mulching and more clippings per bag. The end result? A perfect cut, less time emptying the bag, and less work for you.
The HRX's 21" deck is made of NeXite®. This high impact resistant material does not dent, rust, or corrode over time. So durable it comes with a lifetime warranty!
You can rest easy, knowing your lawn mower is covered from top to bottom for 5 full years.
No engine choke required! Just start the mower and go!
The Versamow System? helps you to mulch or partially mulch even in severe conditions. Just adjust the 10 position Clip Director to the right setting for your lawn.
Smaller grass clippings mean more grass fits in the bag. So you can mow 30% farther before you have to empty the bag.
The HRX has a convenient rear discharge door that improves maneuverability, eliminating the need for a separate discharge chute attachment. Clippings are directed out the bottom at the rear of the mower.
The HRX design makes leaf shredding easy. Tiny pieces minimize the use of leaf bags for collecting debris. No attachments or tools are necessary.
The quick release handle is easy to adjust to one of 3 positions for comfortable mowing. Or fold it over for more compact storage.
Ball bearings in all four wheels offer better maneuverability, smoother drive, and increased durability.
Convenient height adjustment levers to set mowing height for lawn conditions.
Our large capacity grass bags are balanced so they are easy to empty, saving you time and effort.
The fuel valve can be shut off for transport, storage, or to perform maintenance.
