Honda UM536EB Rough Grass Cutter

  • Product Details

    For grounds maintenance professionals tackling verges, ditch banks and other less-attended areas, the cutting and removal of long, thick grass and other vegetation is often a time-consuming job, therefore having suitable equipment to do the job efficiently is essential. Similarly, the demanding home user lucky enough to own an orchard or paddock will appreciate machinery capable of managing larger areas of rough grass. Honda’s powerful and reliable UM 536 EBE Grass Cutter is designed for users and environments such as these, making light work of jobs which can, at times, seem like an almost never-ending task.

    This self-propelled mower — featuring two operating speeds — is powered by a quiet-running, premium grade 163cc Honda GXV OHV petrol engine, built to be highly efficient and very easy to start thanks to an auto-choke system. The large diameter rear wheels, meanwhile, provide high traction and stability, their tread design working to maximise grip, and the front guide wheel also features a three-height adjustment system. The Roto-stop® blade brake clutch is another excellent feature, assuring operator and bystander safety at all times by allowing you to stop the mower’s blades at the touch of the button, while leaving the engine running; this is very handy when you want to move something out of the way of the mower, as well as when you need to cross other types of ground, such as a gravel driveway. The brakes on both back wheels, operated via the handlebar controls, also work to improve manoeuvrability and ensure safe operation on slopes.

    The UM 536 EBE’s 53cm steel cutting deck offers a very wide cut, and added versatility is provided by the height adjustment foot-pedal which allows you to choose between four different cutting heights, from 25mm to 85mm, for effortless adaptation of the cutter to different grass conditions. The floating cutter deck is also a great feature, unique to Honda, allowing the front part of the cutter deck to rise, thus making it easier for the mower to cut high grass; the grass is also cut at an angle, which produces a better result than when the grass is pushed flat in the manner common with some standard grass cutters. Designed for use over long stretches of time in rough conditions, this grass cutter also has several features specifically designed to make the user’s job as easy and comfortable and possible. The side discharge aperture, for example, ensures a fast rate of work and no blockages, while the drive shaft is fully protected against external interference and therefore does not require you to perform any maintenance.

    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.
