Honda HRX 476 VY Four Wheeled Mower
As a global engineering concern, the Honda name has long been synonymous with innovation and excellence across a range of industries. It was only natural, when they took the decision to expand into the garden machinery market, that they would apply the same rigorous design and quality control processes that has made their cars, bikes, and generators a byword for reliability. Over the past 45 years Honda mowers have developed an unrivalled reputation for build quality and longevity – many of their mowers still going strong after 20 years of service. This commitment to excellence is exemplified in the Honda HRX476VY which, with a 19" (47cm) cutting deck, is ideal for larger gardens.
The HRX476VY, part of Honda’s Core range, is variable self-propelled, removing the effort of manually pushing the mower. This model is fitted with Honda’s SMART Drive® technology that allows fingertip control of the hydrostatic drive via simple, handle mounted paddles. Power is provided by Honda’s proven GCV160 four-stroke engine which features Honda’s automatic choke system to ensure easy starting in all weathers.
The Honda HRX476VY, as one of Honda’s Core range of machines, enjoys features not found on their entry level Izy range. As well as the immensely durable Polystrong composite plastic cutting deck which is corrosion resistant and will not become brittle when exposed to sunlight, the HRX476VY features Honda’s Roto-stop® system that allows you to stop the blades while leaving the engine running to move the mower or empty the grass bag. A key feature of the HRX476VY is the Versamow™ variable system that allows you to switch between cutting & collecting and mulching via a simple lever (for more on mulching see our Guide to Mulching). Durability is further ensured through Honda's innovative design of the cutting blades which have been designed to bend and not break in the event that an obstacle is hit. This greatly reduces the likelihood of damage to the mower should such an incident occur.
Cutting height adjustment is via a single centrally mounted lever with seven positions from 25mm-789mm while Honda's grass bag is designed to maximise airflow and works with the blades to maximise grass collection efficiency. With a dry weight of 44kg and easy fold steel handles the HRX476VY is simple to store
