4-in-1 Versamow System™ with Clip Director®

Mulch, bag, discharge and leaf shred with no tools or attachments required. 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.

Auto Choke™ System

Easy starting - no engine choke required! Just start the mower and go!


Easy-starting, fuel efficient, and powerful, Honda's premium residential GCV190 engines are legendary for providing years of reliable service. All Honda lawn mower engines are certified to meet 50-state EPA and CARB emission levels.

Flywheel Brake

Flywheel brake safety system. Quickly stops the engine when you let go of the flywheel brake lever.

Fuel Shut-Off

Manual fuel shut-off valve can be shut off for transport, storage, or to perform maintenance.

Grass Bag

Large 2.5 bushel capacity grass bag. Honda's large capacity grass bags are balanced so they are easy to empty, saving you time and effort.

Height Adjustments

7 position cutting height adjustment (.75" to 4"). Convenient height adjustment levers to set mowing height for lawn conditions.

Leaf Shredding

The HRX design makes leaf shredding easy. Tiny pieces minimize the use of leaf bags for collecting debris. No attachments or tools are necessary.

MicroCut® Twin Blades

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.

Mow More, Empty Less

Go further before emptying the bag. Smaller grass clippings mean more grass fits in the bag. So you can mow 30% farther before you have to empty the bag.

NeXite Deck

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!

No More Clumping

Want to mulch, but worried about leaving clumps? No problem. 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.

Quick Release Adjustable Handle

The quick release handle is easy to adjust to one of 3 positions for comfortable mowing. Or fold it over for more compact storage.

Rear Discharge

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.

Select Drive®

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.


You can rest easy, knowing your lawn mower is covered from top to bottom for 5 full years (residential).
