Picked up a 2001 honda, 16" cut, model as above.
does anyone know if this model has a blade brake as when i release
handle it just stops the engine. other than this it is in great
condition and cuts great...
thanks for looking..
The HRG "Izy" range only have OPC (Operator Pressent Contol) device
which is a flywheel brake / ignition kill device. It kills the engin
and stops the blade when the handle is released and is fitted to abou
90% of lawn mowers these days due to European legislation!
Honda HRB, HRD, HRH and the modern HRX models all feature the Hond
patented BBC (Blade Brake Clutch) design which, as mentioned above, is
clutch between the engine and the blade. This mechanism will stop th
blade when the handle is released but allow the engine to continu
running unlike the OPC design fitted to the budget HRG models.
