Honda FJ500 SER Tiller

  • Product Details

    Honda believes that since no two gardens are the same it’s only right to produce rotary tillers suitable for every occasion, with everything from compact micro-tillers to heavy duty commercial cultivators included in their range. Sitting smack-bang in the middle of this horticultural assortment is the FJ500 SER, a tiller designed to be light and manoeuvrable enough for use in the tight spaces of domestic gardens but heavy duty enough to tackle tough soil cultivation with ease.

    Power is supplied via a hardworking and fuel efficient 163cc Honda GX160 four-stroke petrol engine, featuring a design which benefits from Honda’s wealth of experience. The engine’s overhead valve technology, for example, enhances cooling and ensures optimal power transfer, while its cast iron cylinder sleeve offers proven reliability. This is complemented by the inclusion of an easily accessible recoil starter and an automatic mechanical de-compression system, both of which make starting quick and hassle-free, along with a two-speed gear box featuring forward and reverse gears for greater manoeuvrability and control.

    Supplied with a set of six detachable tines which break up hard soil to provide a fine tilth ideal for seeding or planting, the FJ500 SER can be quickly adapted for a working width of 35cm, 63cm or 90cm. This means that you can customise your tiller depending on the situation at hand, ensuring great results whether working in vegetable patches and flowerbeds or preparing larger areas of land for grass seeding. With an adjustable depth bar also included you can quickly adapt the FJ500 SER for working on either normal or hard ground, and side protection discs are included as standard to permit tilling between narrowly planted rows of crops.

    The FJ500 SER also features an ergonomic design so that even inexperienced users will be able to achieve brilliant results. The intuitive controls, for example, are all easy to access and operate, while the height adjustable handlebars also fold away to facilitate storage. Additional handy features include a mechanism which makes it easy to drain the fuel before storage, a snorkel air filter which reduces service requirements for greater reliability and a frontal transport wheel allowing easier movement from one working area to the next. Any enthusiastic gardener, then, would stand to benefit from the power, toughness and convenience offered by Honda’s FJ500 SER.

    About Honda
    A legendary brand know across the globe and synonymous with quality, the Honda marque traces its origins back to founder Soichiro Honda who marketed his own self-styled piston designs before World War II. From this beginning the Honda Motor Company was born in 1948 with the Honda Cub motorcycle following soon after. Today, the company is the single largest manufacturer of internal combustion engines in the world and it is this pedigree that goes into the development of Honda garden machinery.

    Probably best known amongst gardening professionals for their large range of garden tillers and cultivators, Honda also produce some very fine petrol rotary lawn mowers, in particular their core range of domestic machines, known as the HRX models, that have rewritten modern lawn mower design. Not content with producing some of the best lawn mowers available, Honda have also turned the powered hand-tool sector upside-down by replacing traditional 2-stroke fuelled power units with the cleaner, quieter 4-stroke engines that the company is famous for. Never content with the present, Honda are certain to carry on developing their garden machinery products to stay at the cutting edge of design and performance.
