Honda Lawn Mowers combine powerful engines, great features, and unbeatable performance to help you achieve the perfect looking lawn. These mowers are built with reliability and a wide range of innovative technology that handle your personal and professional outdoor tasks quickly. Read on to learn more about Honda HRR Series Lawn Mowers’ unbeatable specs and features.

Aspects to consider when buying a Honda HRR Series Lawn Mower

Type of Mower

Honda HRR Series Lawn Mowers are gas mowers powered by 160 cc Honda overhead cam engines that come standard with the auto choke system. This system allows you to start the mower without having to manually choke or prime the engine.

Yard Size and Operation

Honda HRR Series Lawn Mowers work best on small to medium-sized lawns. Unlike electric mowers, Honda lawn mowers allow you to mow with the restriction of a cord. They’re more powerful and can cut thick grass on flat, hilly or uneven lawns.

Cutting Widths

The Honda HRR Series Lawn Mowers have 21-inch cutting widths, which indicates how wide a swath of grass you can cut with a single pass of the lawn mowers.

Deck

Honda’s HRR Series Lawn Mowers are designed with 21-inch stamped steel decks, and Honda’s exclusive quadra cut mulching system. This system has 2 blades that cut and re-cut clippings into very fine particles, and mulches extremely well.

Mulching/Bagging

The HRR Series lawn mowers have mulching and bagging capabilities. Mulching lawn mowers, such as these, have decks designed to keep grass clippings, allowing the blade to cut them into smaller fragments. The small clippings fall on the lawn as mulch and add nutrients to the soil. Mulching works well if you mow regularly and your grass isn’t too tall.

These lawn mowers have bagging systems, which means they are designed with a bag attached to their rear. The bag collects grass clippings to give your lawn a clean look. Once the bag on the mowers is full, you need to dispose of them in a yard waste bag or a compost pile.

This bagger is works well with long grass and even picking up leaves in the fall. These lawn mowers come with Honda’s Roto-Stop blade stop system which allows you to empty the bagger without restarting the engine. Honda HRR Series Mowers’ bags are easily removable so you can switch between bagger and mulcher without any tools.

Height Adjustment and Mower Speed

Honda lawn mowers allow you to cut efficiently and adjust the mower’s speed to your stride with a 5-position adjustable control Smart Drive™. These lawn mowers have ball bearing wheels, 7 cutting heights that allow you to cut from 1 inch to 4 inches, and a handle with two quick release pins that enable you to adjust for 2 different handles for different operators. The handle will also fold completely over for compact storage.

Honda Lawn Mowers are backed by a 3 year Honda residential warranty and is service at any Weingartz location.

Leaves: “I Didn’t Fall, I was Pushed!”

I-Didn't-Fall-I-Was-Pushed - Featured Image

The days are getting shorter, the leaves are bursting with colors, and many of us are preparing our lawn and garden for the winter slumber. As gusts of wind swirl about our landscape, a multitude of colorful leaves fall to the ground. Contrary to most people’s belief, the wind has little to do with leaves “falling” off the tree. The tree actually cuts and pushes leaves off the tree!

We just began preparing for the cold months ahead, while our trees started this preparation at the beginning of spring. During spring growth, a separation layer called the abscission is formed at the base of each leaf and branch.

During the summer, this layer helps send water to the leaves and food back to the tree. All summer excess food is made and stored as starch until it is needed for the winter months. The shorter and cooler days of autumn trigger a hormone that sends a chemical message to every leaf; stop food production, it’s time to go.

Once this message is received, the abscission cells begin to swell where the leaf and stem meet. Within a few days or weeks, a bumpy line is developed that reduces the flow of water and food between the leaf and stem, leaving glucose and waste products trapped in the leaf.

Without fresh water to renew the leaves, chlorophyll begins to disappear. Little by little leaves are actually pushed away or off the branch!

Once those leaves hit the ground, you’ll want to remove them before snow hits the ground. When it comes to leaf cleanup, there are a few options: rake the leaves, save the leaves for mulch, or use a leaf blower.

So how do we get those beautiful colors?

Think back to your grade school science class when we learned about photosynthesis. In short, plants take in sunlight, carbon dioxide, and water. Plants produce glucose as food for energy and growing.

A chemical called chlorophyll helps make photosynthesis happen and gives plants their green color. When the chlorophyll disappears from the leaves, the bright green slowly fades away.

Now is when we begin to see the beautiful yellow and orange colors that have been in the leaves all summer, hiding under the green chlorophyll. The bright reds and purples we see in leaves are from the glucose that is trapped in the leaves. After photosynthesis stops, the glucose is turned to red. The deep brown colors are made from waste that is left in the leaves.

The combinations of all these colors give us the amazing autumn view. As we all know, Michigan is one of the best places in the world to see the burst of autumn colors.

Generally, the brightest autumn colors are seen when we have a dry late summer and bright sunny autumn days.

You can track the fall colors by going to www.michigan.org.
