Honda Power Equipment’s HRC216K3HDA self-propelled commercial lawn mower features reduced weight for better maneuverability, simple starting, easy operation, and quick stopping.

The Honda GXV160 commercial engine produces powerful, quiet operation and maintains consistent speed across all mowing conditions, according to Honda. The mower's hydrostatic transmission includes a heavy-duty automotive style shaft drive that eliminates the belt that can slip or wear out.

Operators can start the engine while standing behind the mower, and the flywheel brake safety system stops the engine and blades when the user lets go of the brake lever on the handle.

The exclusive Honda MicroCut Twin Blade System offers four cutting surfaces to produce finer clippings, and the mower can be adjusted to eight different heights suitable to all types of grass and mowing conditions.

The outside of the mower features a 21-inch steel deck with front axle and bumper protection for additional structural stability and durability. Completing the package are ergonomic heavy-duty steel piped reinforced handles.

The dry weight of 117 lbs. and operating weight of 121 lbs. make the HRC216K3HDA easy to maneuver.

The mower is backed by the Honda one-year commercial warranty (one year for the frame, two years for the engine). MSRP is $1,149. The mower will be available at Honda Power Equipment dealers nationwide in November.
