Honda mower day one

Honda 190 lawn mower day one.

The new Honda mower was easy to set up and even easier to start.

Anna got it going on the first pull with little effort.

The bigger wheels and extra power is a good match for our overgrown patches of weeds we like to call a lawn in between sections of the garden.

How much horsepower does your mower have? My push mower has 21 hp and I find that cuts through large grass and weeds like a hot knife through butter.

Way to go Anna! Does it come with a bagger or is that an option? If so.... Maybe I need one like it.....

We got a Honda mower 15 years ago, and it still starts on the first pull! Great choice!

We paid a little extra to get a bigger engine with bigger wheels..not sure how much horsepower that equals.

It came with a bag but we don't use it as it mulches the grass nicely.

The easy starting is awesome. No pumping bulbs or adjustments...just pull the rope slightly and it starts each time.
