“ Brand: Honda / Cutting Deck (cm): 42 „
I have had my mower for a year and it has gone back 5 times. I wanted a change from a Suffolk but wished to retain my striped lawn. Very few cylinder type mowers now available so picked this on the grounds that a Honda, if nothing else would be reliable. This of course is a rotary type. If I have used it for 20 hours I would be surprised and it has proved very unreliable indeed. I cannot really fault either Honda or my supplier because they have done all they can to fix the faults. I am not even sure there was more than one fault but they seemed unable to fix it. It revolves around the fact that I did not want a mower that turns the engine off each time you go to empty the cuttings out of the bag. In order to make sure that the blade stops turning the clutch operates and this has been the fault. The so called easy start has been the complete opposite and turns into a stomach wrenching exercise which won't start it anyway. The mower has been collected by the supplier and " fixed" and returned only to go wrong again. Whether it has anything to do with being built in France I don't know. Even the engine has been replaced. I have used a motor mower for over 30 years and never had one so unreliable. Now it has been fixed again this year I am really hoping that it won't need more attention. It cuts well when running and is OK to use. I already have 2 free services in hand because of all the problems. Honda really have seemed baffled by their own product. They have always said that it is nothing to do with me using it incorrectly. Beware of this product or at least make sure you get it from a really helpful dealer, such as David Attfield near Byfleet in Surrey. As far as I can see they are not responsible.
Honda HRX 426 RX Rear-Roller is No.1 of lawnmowers.
I have used the Honda HRX 426 for over a year and find it a brilliant lawnmower as it leaves an excellent cut and the finish with stripes on the grass looks very professional.
The Honda comes with a 60 litre grass bag so you will find that you will not be needing to empty the bag while cutting your garden unless you are working on a large area of grass. This helps save alot of time if you are using the machine for commercial use. The bag is very durable which is neccesary if you are working a long hard season of grass cutting. I find you only need to mend the bag at the end of the season using fish line to mend any holes that have appeared.
The back roller is excellent as it leaves brilliant stripes on the grass but beware if you are using it in wet weather or on grass that has had been rained on even the day before, the roller can cut up the edges and leave marks on the grass.
Honda has on of the best engines for lawnmowers in my opinion and I personally would always buy a Honda for this reason as the engine has an excellent life and very few problems arise with it.
All in all the Honda HRX 426 RX is a brilliant Honda that is well worth
considering when look to buy a reliable lawnmower.
