Cruise Control Hydrostatic Transmission
Honda's exclusive Cruise Control hydrostatic transmission allows you to set and easily change your speed for outstanding control. Choose any comfortable speed between 0 and 4 mph.
Mow at your own pace
Cruise Control allows you to vary the ground speed from 0 to 4 mph. You can gradually adjust your speed to match the mowing conditions.
Quickly adjust the speed to your liking
Cruise Control allows you to precisely control the speed of the mower. When you need to change your speed, the control is right there on the handlebar. Choose from 9 different preset "maximum" speeds using the orange shift lever. Then use the clutch lever to vary your speed from zero up to your preset maximum as you are mowing. And of course, you can change your preset maximum at any time. It's easy and convenient to use.
No need to "push"
Unlike other variable speed systems, Honda's Cruise Control lets you set your speed and forget it. No need to constantly push or lean to make this mower go.
Save your preferred speed
Need to pause to empty the bag or take a break? Just like a car, Cruise Control enables you to save your preferred mowing speed, then immediately return to it when you start mowing again.
Heavy duty transmission
Our Cruise Control hydrostatic transmission uses a hydraulic pump and motor, just like you'd find in professional riding equipment. Ground speed is varied by changing the rate of flow of the hydrostatic fluid. There is no "slipping" belt or clutch to wear out. It's heavy duty and remarkably durable. Honda is the only manufacturer to offer this top of the line hydrostatic transmission on a standard lawnmower.
Cruise Control is available on our HRX217HYA , HRX17HZA, and HRC216HXA mowers.
