Part of Honda’s Izy range of four-wheeled rotary lawnmowers, the HRG 536 VL offers top-quality performance and supreme versatility while also keeping things simple enough to ensure great results without any unnecessary hassle. This model’s extra features, however, such as electrically assisted starting, serve to mark out the HRG 536 VL as being a cut above the rest. Equipped with a robust 53cm steel cutting deck and a SMART drive® variable speed system, the HRG 536 VL is ideal for large domestic gardens and will even handle slopes and rougher ground with ease.
When it comes to cutting, the HRG 536 VL offers superb versatility and outstanding convenience. Equipped with a Versamow™ selective mulching system, the HRG 536 VL allows you to flip between cut and collect and mulching via an easily accessible switch on the cutting deck. A spacious 66 litre capacity grass bag is supplied as standard for collection, its large size reducing the number of stops you’ll need to make in order to dispose of clippings. Furthermore, the high air flow design of the grass bag encourages greater collection efficiency, the fine mesh material used in its construction working to trap dust and help prevent blockages for even greater efficiency.
The HRG 536 VL’s mulching function, meanwhile, is both eco-friendly and a great time-saver. Mulched grass clippings are cut and re-cut inside the mower before then being blown back down into the soil to break down, whereupon vital nutrients and moisture are returned to your grass, encouraging the growth of a healthier lawn. Versatility is also offered in terms of cutting height, as the HRG 536 VL offers six height settings, ranging from 28mm to 102mm, controlled via handy a lever on the cutting deck.
The HRG 536 VL also comes fitted with a self-propelled SMART drive® variable speed system, making even longer periods of use far less strenuous. This system gives you complete control over the mower’s propulsion, and thus allows you to immediately adjust the speed for sloping or rougher ground while also improving traction when mowing around borders and obstacles. New for the 2020 season, our new range of Izy lawnmowers feature our latest Euro-5 compliant, four-stroke GCVx engines. These new engines offer enhanced combustion by creating stronger turbulence inside the chamber, while also being more tolerant to lower quality fuels. All Izys have a new Auto Choke system, offering improved temperature sensing and choke optimisation, for easier starting in the most challenging conditions. For even greater convenience, the HRG 536 VL also features electronic key ignition on the handlebar, ideal for anyone who struggles with a traditional recoil pull start. Smooth running ball bearings in the wheels, meanwhile, grant excellent manoeuvrability, which is especially important when you are dealing with varied ground conditions.
The HRG 536 VL also comes with a full five year warranty from Honda to provide added peace of mind, with many other design features contributing to make a safe, convenient and durable machine. The design of the blade is particularly clever, reducing running costs and service requirements by ensuring the blades twist rather than break if they hit an obstacle. Likewise, the sturdy steel cutting deck is also built for a long service life, and has even been specially treated to resist UV abrasion, rust and corrosion.
The HRG 536 VL is even engineered to make life easier when you have finished mowing, as the handlebar can be folded down to make it easier to store, and with a low overall weight of 37kg this impressive lawnmower is also much easier to transport than you might expect, making it a perfect choice for the serious home gardener.
