The Honda Izy HRG465PD is a 46 cm (18″) cut petrol lawnmower loved by professional gardeners across the world. It’s designed for medium to large sized gardens up to the size of a tennis court. It has a sturdy body and cutting deck made of steel finished off in a durable champagne colour powder coated finish so it’ll stay looking good for years to come.

Thanks to careful design by Honda it’s not that heavy despite its size. Honda have paired down the metal where it’s not needed and ensured that there’s just enough where it is. The result is a petrol lawnmower that, even on a lawn with lots of slopes, is easy to push around. This is helped by the large wheels which don’t drop into small holes and depressions in the lawn as much as smaller wheels do.

And whilst we’re on the subject of wheels, they are very slightly inside of the cutting width which makes lining up with the previous dead easy. It also makes it possible to cut close to trees and right up to the lawn edge without a wheel falling into the flower bed.

The Honda Izy HRG465PD is powered by Hondas renowned Honda GCV135 4-stroke engine 4.5 HP engine which has an automatic choke so, unlike some other petrol lawnmowers, there’s no need to prime it before starting it. All you need to do is to hold the safety handle and pull the starter cord which is located halfway up the handle. Our one started first time, everytime even when cold and damp – this is extremely impressive.

In use, the Honda Izy HRG465PD cut our lawn superbly and left a nicely defined stripe on the lawn thanks to the rubber flap fitted at the back. Whilst this is not as good as the stripe left by a petrol mower with a real rear roller it’s pretty close. And thanks to the power of the engine, we had no problems with grass pick up even on wet grass.

The cutting height is adjusted through 6 increments ranging 20 mm to 74 mm by two chunky levers at the front and rear of the cutting deck. Thanks to the flowing shape of the cutting deck it’s easy to clean as there are no odd shaped areas where the cuttings can get trapped.

The grass bag looks small but holds a deceptively large 50 litres of grass cuttings and Honda say that the grass bag has been redesigned in order to improve the pickup of the grass cuttings, certainly we had no problems with grass pick up at all. It’ll even cut long wet grass so long as you do an initial high cut before doing a second lower one.

The fact that the Honda Izy HRG465PD is used by so many professional gardeners tells you all you need to know about this mower. If you want a robust, reliable and durable petrol lawnmower with excellent performance then look no further. The three year warranty is a further sweetener.

Although it appears pricy, you really do get what you pay for. If you’ve got a medium to large garden, buy it !  You won’t regret it.
