The new Honda Izy HRG 466 SK is a new 18" (46cm) self propelled lawn mower that supersedes the Honda Izy HRG 465 SD. It features an even more powerful Honda GCV160 engine, producing 160cc and 4.4hp of net power.
With the new Honda Izy HRG466 SK, intuitive operation means there is nothing to learn and maintaining and storing the Izy is a doddle.
With an integrated auto choke system, the recoil start is virtually effortless to use in all weather conditions. Making the Izy HRG 466 SK even easier is its self driven quality meaning no more back breaking pushing for the user.
A brilliant feature of this machine is that you don't have to worry about storing it. It has fully functional folding handles which enable you to fit the mower easily in the garden shed after use.
With a high quality steel deck the chassis will last for years and thanks to its rounded design it provides optimal airflow for brilliant grass collection. The rounded design also means it's easy to clean as there are no hidden areas for wet grass to cling to.
There are six cutting heights to this mower between 20 to 74 mm which enable you to choose your ideal grass finish.
The HRG466SK comes with a large 55 litre grass bag meaning less trips to empty as you mow. When you do empty the collection bag there is a built-in rear shield which drops down when the bag is removed to protect the users legs.
About Honda Izy Lawn Mowers
THE STRENGTH OF STEEL
The cutter deck is built tough to go on and on. Our manufacturing process adds all round strength to the cutter deck, because it’s formed in a press from a single sheet of steel. Then we paint it with a powder coating process that leaves a tough, durable finish that’s resistant to corrosion and UV ray deterioration.
The handles are fixed to the cutter deck by a strong supporting arms at the side and won't flex or bend during use. They can be quickly fixed into position when you need to start work, or folded down to save space when stored away in the shed or garage.
THE FANTASTIC 4-STROKE
Honda was first to use this type of engine on lawnmowers and it still can't be beaten.
With years of experience and research building engines, we’ve designed a light 4-stroke motor that sits at the heart of the IZY mowers. It delivers solid, reliable power with lower and cleaner emissions. It has an auto choke system, which adopts the same technology you’ll find in Honda cars and motorbikes.
The engines are the lightest and most compact of their type. They’re incredibly easy to start because of a super-light flywheel and a new soft grip recoil handle for added comfort. Both features make sure the job isn't like an unplanned gym workout!
The low maintenance, 4-stroke engines avoid the messy business of mixing oil and fuel usually associated with a 2-stroke. They are less messy and less noisy, always start and fuel economy is much better too.
IT FUELS AND FEELS RIGHT
NO SPILLS MEANS NO DEAD GRASS AND NO MESS. THIS ERGONOMIC FILLER CAP IS EASY TO REMOVE WITH A TWIST.
All IZY mowers have high airflow collection bags.
As the rotating blade cuts the grass it generates the airflow, which is important for the collecting process. The low air pressure creates a vacuum effect – literally sucking up the clippings – directing them through to the collection bag at the rear.
We created a special material for our collection bags that start at 50-litres, through to a huge 73-litres capacity, depending on which mower you choose. Made with an ultra-fine mesh they maximise the collecting process without affecting the airflow and can stop even the finest dust particles from getting through. You won’t find a cleaner and more efficient system anywhere.
A GREENER GREEN
You'll soon see noticeable results from mulching.
The HRG 536 SMART Drive® IZY lawnmowers have a simple Versamow™ selective mulching switch that opens or closes a door at the back of the cutter deck.
With the exit from the cutter deck open, the cuttings go straight into the collection bag as normal, when no mulching is required. With the mulching switch on, the door is closed, the fine clippings drop down and settle around the grass roots, creating a natural fertiliser.
Easy to fit mulching kit
On other selected IZY lawnmowers, it's possible to mulch by using the the optional mulching kit.
0% less noise means it's IZY-er to live with
As with all Honda products, protecting the environment is always an important consideration. With noise pollution regulations spreading throughout Europe, noise reduction is a key item for consumers of petrol lawnmowers.
Sticking to its core 'Izy' concept, noise levels have been reduced from 96 dB(A) to an impressive 94 dB(A). This has been achieved by making significant changes to the blade tips which now include the introduction of slots. The cutter deck tilt angle - rear verses front - has increased and slots have been added in the rear shield of the cutter housing to maximise the air flow to the grass bag. These modifications have resulted in significantly improved class leading 'cut and collect' performance as well as dramatically reducing the noise level by 30 per cent.
Auto choke innovation means it's IZY-er to use
'How much choke do I use?' - this is a familiar question which most lawnmower users would rather do without. Honda engineers furthered the Izy-ness concept by studying the problems often encountered while using the choke.
As a result of their research a thermo wax assembly now opens and closes the choke valve automatically inside the intake manifold of all new Izy models. When the engine temperature is low (i.e., when starting from cold) the choke valve is closed; once the engine has warmed up, the choke valve opens.
Following engine start, the thermo wax assembly operates by receiving heat from the engine block moving the choke link to the open position. When the engine temperature cools, or when some time has passed during operation and choking is necessary, the thermo wax assembly will be returned to its initial position by the return spring. This moves the choke link to the closed position. In addition to simpler mowing, the innovative auto choke device also improves performance because the correct carburettor settings are automatically controlled and achieved with greater efficiency.
The Honda Izy HRG 466 SK has a fantastic 5 year warranty (subject to annual service). Honda domestic lawnmowers are all supported with one of the longest and most comprehensive warranties in the industry.
