WARNING

The engine exhaust from this product contains
chemicals known to the State of California to cause
cancer, birth defects, or reproductive harm.
Important Message to Parents
The safety of your children is very important to Honda. Lawn mowers
are tools, not toys. As with any equipment, bad judgments can result
in serious injuries. Your child must be big enough, strong enough, and
have the coordination necessary to comfortably reach and operate the
controls. Anyone who takes unnecessary risks and doesn’t obey rules
should not operate this lawn mower.

Add Engine Oil
Before Using Your Lawn Mower
The mower is shipped WITHOUT
OIL in the engine. Remove the oil
filler cap/dipstick and add the
entire contents of the included
bottle of oil into the oil filler
opening.
All mower operators must read the following sections:
•
•
•
•
All Honda engines are run at the
factory prior to packaging. Most of
the oil is removed prior to
shipment; however, some oil
remains in the engine. The amount
of oil left in the engine varies.
BEFORE EACH OPERATION
Your safety is your responsibility. A little time spent in preparation will
significantly reduce your risk of injury.
If you don’t use the supplied oil, add enough SAE 10W-30 API service
category SJ or later oil to bring the oil level between the upper and
lower limit marks on the dipstick—without screwing the dipstick in
(approximately 12 to 13.5 ounces is required) See page 6.
Do not overfill the engine with oil. If the engine is overfilled, the
excess oil may get transferred to the air cleaner housing and air filter.
An indication of overfilling is white or blue smoke coming from the
muffler when the engine is running.
After filling the engine with oil, screw the filler/cap dipstick in and
remove the hang tag near the recoil starter grip that says “The engine
has no oil.”
Assemble the Grass Bag
1. Turn the grass bag right-side out.
3. Install the assembled frame into the fabric grass bag, keeping the
grass bag handle exposed.

BEFORE EACH OPERATION (page 4)
OPERATION (page 7)
MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE (page 10)
WARNING
Improperly maintaining this lawn mower, or failing to correct a
problem before operation, could cause a malfunction in which
you could be seriously injured.
Always perform a pre-operation inspection before each
operation, and correct any problem.
• Make sure the lawn mower is on a level surface.
• Look around and underneath the lawn mower for signs of oil or
gasoline leaks.
• Look for signs of damage.
• Check each control for proper operation.
• Check the blades for wear. Replace as necessary (page 11).
• Check that the blade bolts are tight (page 11).
• Check that all nuts, bolts, and screws are tightened.
• Check the air filter (page 12) and oil level (page 6).
• Check the fuel level (page 7). Starting with a full tank will help to
eliminate or reduce operating interruptions for refueling.
Check Your Mowing Area
For your safety and the safety of others, always inspect the area
before operating the lawn mower.
Anything that can be picked up by the blades and thrown is a potential
hazard to you and others. Look for things like stones, sticks, nails, and
wire, and remove them from the lawn area.
People and animals near the lawn area can move into your lawn
mower’s path or into a position where they could be struck by thrown
objects. Clear the area of pets and people, especially children. Their
safety is your responsibility.
Check the condition of the grass. Adjust your lawn mower ground
speed and mowing swath accordingly.
Clip Director®
The Clip Director can be adjusted to any one of the ten positions to
achieve the desired mowing results (bag, bag and mulch, or mulch).
To adjust the Clip Director knob, pull the knob downward and towards
the rear of the mower. The knob adjusts a sliding door from the fully
open BAG position to the fully closed MULCH position.

KNOB (MULCH POSITION)
Some grass accumulation in the discharge opening is normal when
the Clip Director is fully closed in the MULCH position. To remove this
grass, close the discharge guard, fully open the Clip Director in the
BAG position, engage the blade control lever, and start the engine.
If a high resistance is noticed when moving the Clip Director knob
from side-to-side, excessive grass may have built up on top of the
sliding door.

To discharge clippings to the rear, remove the grass bag and position
the Clip Director knob in the BAG range. Maximum rear discharge will
occur when the Clip Director knob is all the way to the left (BAG)
position. As the Clip Director knob is moved toward the right (MULCH)
position, less grass will be discharged through the rear discharge
guard.

Important Safety Precaution
Always release the blade control lever and disconnect the spark plug
cap (page 13) before lifting the discharge guard to view or clean
around the sliding door. This will prevent contact with the rotating
blades and prevent objects from being thrown into the discharge area.
Sliding Door Position
The sliding door can be positioned to produce different mowing
results. If the preferred sliding door position is unknown, install the
grass bag and begin mowing with the Clip Director knob all the way to
the BAG position. Check the appearance of the lawn. As the knob is
moved towards the MULCH position, more grass will be recycled back
into the lawn. Adjust the Clip Director knob until the desired result is
achieved.
CLIP DIRECTOR KNOB
Fallen Leaves
Use the Clip Director to shred and collect fallen leaves for disposal.
Set the front wheels so they are one or two settings higher than the
rear. Set the Clip Director in position #9 (not quite full mulching), and
adjust the setting from this point for best results.
Rear Shield
During normal use the rear shield is subject to deterioration and wear.
Remove the grass bag and raise the discharge guard to check the
rear shield for cracks or tears. If the rear shield is excessively worn,
have it replaced by your authorized Honda servicing dealer.

Grass Bag
A lawn mower works like a vacuum cleaner; it blows air through the
bag fabric, which traps the grass clippings. Always empty the grass
bag before it becomes filled to the limit of its capacity. Bagging
performance will diminish after the bag becomes about 90% filled.
Also, the bag is easier to empty when it is not packed full.
You can leave the grass bag on the mower during mowing, even
when full mulching is selected.
To adjust cutting height,
pull each adjustment lever
toward the wheel, and
move it into another notch.
ADJUSTMENT LEVERS
Move all four adjustment
levers to the same
position, forward for tall
grass and rearward for
short grass.
To minimize dust and fine particles from passing through the grass
bag fabric, it is best to mow grass in the morning when the grass is
damp.
Inspection
THE CUTTING HEIGHT FIGURES ARE APPROXIMATE.
During use, the grass bag material is subject to normal wear and tear.

Cutting Height Adjustment
Each wheel of the mower can be adjusted to one of seven settings.
The actual height of cut grass will vary with lawn and soil conditions.
Be sure the engine is not running when adjusting the cutting height.
If you are not sure what cutting height to select, start with a high
setting and check the appearance of the lawn after mowing a small
area. Then readjust the cutting height if necessary.
Check the Oil Level
1. Unscrew and remove the filler cap/dipstick and wipe it clean.
2. Insert and remove the
dipstick without screwing
it into the filler neck.
Check the oil level shown
on the dipstick.

Add Fuel
This engine is certified to operate on regular gasoline with a pump
octane rating of 86 or higher.
Never use stale or contaminated gasoline or an oil/gasoline mixture.
Avoid getting dirt or water in the fuel tank.
You may use regular unleaded gasoline containing no more than 10%
ethanol (E10) or 5% methanol by volume. In addition, methanol must
contain cosolvents and corrosion inhibitors.
OPERATION
For your safety, avoid starting or operating the engine in an enclosed
area, such as a garage. Your mower’s exhaust contains poisonous
carbon monoxide gas, which can collect rapidly in an enclosed area
and cause illness or death.

WARNING
Use of fuels with content of ethanol or methanol greater than shown
above may cause starting and/or performance problems. It may also
damage metal, rubber, and plastic parts of the fuel system.
Exhaust contains poisonous carbon monoxide gas that can
build up to dangerous levels in closed areas. Breathing carbon
monoxide can cause unconsciousness or death.
Engine damage or performance problems that result form using a fuel
with percentages of ethanol or methanol greater than shown above
are not covered under warranty.
Never run the lawn mower in a closed, or even partially closed
area where people may be present.

You might hear a clicking noise as you push or pull the lawn mower
without engaging the Smart Drive. This is normal; moving the mower
without using the Smart Drive control will not damage the mower.
WARNING
Gasoline is highly flammable and explosive, and you can be
burned or seriously injured when refueling.
• Stop the engine and keep heat, sparks, and flame away.
• Refuel only outdoors.
• Wipe up spills immediately.
If your equipment will be used on an infrequent or intermittent basis,
(more than 4 weeks before next use), refer to “FUEL SYSTEM
MAINTENANCE” on page 19 for information regarding fuel
deterioration.
1. Remove the fuel tank cap.
2. Add fuel to the bottom of the red fuel level gauge in the neck of
the fuel tank. Do not overfill. Wipe up spilled fuel before starting
the engine.
Safe Mowing Practices
Most injuries and property damage with walk-behind mowers can be
prevented if you follow all instructions in this manual and on the
mower. The most common hazards are discussed below, along with
the best way to protect yourself and others.
Avoid Rotating Blades
Rotating blades can cause serious cuts and even amputate fingers,
hands, toes, or feet. Keep away from the mower deck whenever the
engine is running. If you need to adjust the cutting height or work
around the deck for any other reason, always shut off the engine.
Wear heavy gloves and disconnect the spark plug cap when you need
to clean the mower deck or handle the blades.

RED FUEL
LEVEL GAUGE
WARNING
The blades are sharp and spin at high speed. A spinning blade
can cut you severely and can amputate fingers and toes.
• Wear protective footwear.
• Keep your hands and feet away from the mower deck while
the engine is running.
• Stop the engine before performing any adjustment,
inspection, or maintenance.
MAXIMUM
FUEL LEVEL
3. Tighten the fuel tank cap until it clicks.
Move the mower at least 10 feet (3 meters) away from the fueling
source and site before starting the engine.
NOTICE
Fuel can damage paint and plastic. Be careful not to spill fuel
when filling your fuel tank. Damage caused by spilled fuel is not
covered by the DISTRIBUTOR’S LIMITED WARRANTY
(page 21).
Clear Mowing Area
Mower blades can throw rocks and other objects with enough force to
cause serious injury. Before mowing, carefully inspect the area and
remove all sticks, stones, pieces of wire, and other loose objects.
Never operate the blades over gravel.
NOTICE
Striking objects with the spinning blades can cause severe engine
damage, which is not covered by the Distributor’s Limited Warranty.
Keep Shields In Place
Guards and shields are designed to protect you from being hit by
thrown objects and from hot engine parts and moving components.
For your safety and the safety of others, keep all shields in place
when the engine is running.
7
Operating the Controls
Refuel With Care
Gasoline is extremely flammable and gasoline vapor can explode.
Refuel only outdoors, in a well-ventilated area, with the engine OFF.
Never smoke near gasoline, and keep other flames and sparks away.
Always store gasoline in an approved container.
Wear Protective Clothing
Wearing protective clothing will reduce your risk of injury. Long pants
and eye protection reduce the risk of injuries from thrown objects.
Sturdy shoes with aggressive soles will help protect your feet and give
you better traction on slopes or uneven ground.
Stop the Engine When Not Mowing
If you need to leave the mower for any reason, even just to inspect the
lawn ahead, stop the engine by releasing the blade control lever.
Avoid Slopes
Avoid steep slopes of more than 20°.
Mow across slopes, not up and down. Be
careful when changing direction. Mowing
on a slope when the grass is damp or wet
could cause you to slip, fall, and lose
control of the mower.
NOTICE
Mowing on steep slopes can starve the
engine of oil, causing engine damage that
is not covered by the Distributor’s Limited
Warranty.
Keep all four wheels on the ground, and be careful to avoid losing
your footing and your control of the mower. Keep a firm grip on the
handlebar, and walk, never run, with the mower. Be very careful when
mowing uneven or rough ground.
If stuck, do not kick or shove the mower with your foot. Use the
handlebar to control the mower.
Avoid Obstacles
Gravel, loose stones, and landscaping material can be picked up by
the mower and thrown many feet with enough force to cause serious
personal injury and/or property damage. The best way to prevent
potential injury from thrown objects is to release the blade control
lever to stop the blades before reaching areas with gravel, loose
stones, or landscaping material.
Be careful when mowing over obstacles that stick up above the
surface of the lawn such as sprinkler heads, paving, edging, raised
tree roots, etc.
If the blade hits something, or if the mower starts to vibrate, stop the
engine immediately, disconnect the spark plug cap, and check for
damage (page 11). Striking objects may damage the blades, bend the
crankshaft, and/or break the mower deck or other components.
Vibration usually indicates serious trouble.

WARNING
A worn, cracked, or damaged blade can break, and pieces of
the damaged blade can become dangerous projectiles.
Thrown objects can cause serious injury.
Inspect the blades regularly (see page 11), and do not operate
the mower with a worn or damaged blade.
The DISTRIBUTOR’S LIMITED WARRANTY (page 21) does not
cover parts damaged by accidental impact collision.

seriously hurt or killed.
3. Pull the starter grip lightly until
you feel resistance, and then
pull briskly. Return the starter
grip gently.
To ensure easy restarting and
maximum performance from the
Auto Choke System™, allow
the engine to run for at least
three minutes after starting a
cold engine before stopping the
engine. This minimum run time
will be longer if the temperature
is below 70°F (21°C).
SERVICING YOUR MOWER
Always follow the inspection and maintenance
recommendations and schedules in this owner’s manual.
BLADE CONTROL LEVER
Continue to hold the blade
control lever against the
handlebar; the engine stops
when the blade control lever is
released.
Stopping the Engine
1. Release the blade control lever to stop the engine.
2. When you finish mowing, turn the fuel valve OFF.
3. If your mower will not be used for 3 to 4 weeks, we recommend
running the engine’s carburetor out of fuel. You can do this by
leaving the fuel valve OFF, restarting the engine and running it
until it stops. See “FUEL SYSTEM MAINTENANCE” on page 19
if you don’t plan to use your mower for a month or more.
4. Clean your mower after each mowing; refer to “Cleaning” on
page 15.
To help you properly care for your mower, the following pages include
a maintenance schedule, routine inspection procedures, and simple
maintenance procedures using basic hand tools. Other service tasks
that are more difficult or require special tools are best handled by
professionals and are normally performed by a Honda technician or
other qualified mechanic.
The maintenance schedule applies to normal operating conditions. If
you operate your mower under severe conditions, such as sustained
high load, high temperature, or unusually wet or dusty conditions,
consult your servicing dealer for recommendations applicable to your
individual needs and use.
Remember that an authorized Honda servicing dealer knows your
mower best and is fully equipped to maintain and repair it. To ensure
the best quality and reliability, use only new, Honda Genuine parts or
their equivalents for repair and replacement.
Maintenance, replacement, or repair of the emission control
devices and systems may be performed by any engine repair
establishment or individual, using parts that are “certified” to
EPA standards.
Maintenance Safety
Some of the most important safety precautions follow. However, we
cannot warn you of every conceivable hazard that can arise in
performing maintenance. Only you can decide whether or not you
should perform a given task.

WARNING
Failure to properly follow maintenance instructions and
precautions can cause you to be seriously hurt or killed.
Always follow the procedures and precautions in this manual.
Safety Precautions
• Make sure the engine is off before you begin any maintenance or
repairs. This will eliminate several potential hazards:
– Carbon monoxide poisoning from engine exhaust.
Be sure there is adequate ventilation whenever you operate
the engine.
– Burns from hot parts.
Let the engine and exhaust system cool before touching.
– Injury from moving parts.
Do not run the engine unless instructed to do so.
• Read the instructions before you begin, and make sure you have
the tools and skills required.
• To reduce the possibility of fire or explosion, be careful when
working around gasoline. Use only a nonflammable solvent, not
gasoline, to clean parts. Keep cigarettes, sparks, and flames away
from all fuel-related parts.

Blade Inspection
Blade Replacement
1. Turn the fuel valve OFF (page 3).
2. Disconnect the spark plug cap from the spark plug (page 13).
3. Tilt the mower to the right side so that the fuel cap side is up. This
will help to prevent fuel leakage and hard starting due to
carburetor flooding.
4. Inspect the blades for damage, cracks, and excessive rust or
corrosion.
1. Remove the two blade bolts with a 14 mm (6 point) socket
wrench. Use a wooden block to prevent the blades from turning
when removing the bolts. Remove the blades.

WARNING
A worn, cracked, or damaged blade can break, and pieces of
the damaged blade can become dangerous projectiles.
Thrown objects can cause serious injury.
Inspect the blades regularly, and do not operate the mower
with worn or damaged blades.

WARNING
Operating the mower with only one blade will result in an
improperly seated blade that can be thrown from the mower
and seriously hurt or kill someone.
Always install both blades as a set.
A dull blade can be sharpened, but a blade that is excessively worn,
bent, cracked, or otherwise damaged must be replaced.
The blade bolts and washers are specially designed for this
application. When replacing bolts and washers, use only Honda
Genuine replacement parts.

Engine Oil Recommendations
Oil is a major factor affecting performance and service life. Always
change the oil in accordance with the MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE
(page 10).
Recommended oil for general use: SAE 10W-30
Other viscosities shown in the chart may be used when the average
temperature in your area is within the recommended range.

TORQUE:
36 ~ 43 ft-lb
(49 ~ 59 N•m)
Change the oil after the first month or 5 hours of use. Thereafter,
change the oil every 6 months or 50 hours of use. Change the oil
more frequently when used under heavy load or high outdoor
temperatures. See “Engine Oil Recommendations” on this page for
recommended oil properties.
Drain the used oil while the engine is warm. Warm oil drains quickly
and completely.
To reduce the chance of scratching the side of the mower deck or
wheels when tipping, place a piece of cardboard or drop cloth on the
ground. The use of a commercially available siphon pump will save
time and make the oil change easier.
1. Turn the fuel valve OFF (page 3). This will reduce the possibility
of fuel leakage.
2. Wipe the oil filler area clean, and then remove the oil filler
cap/dipstick.
3. Place a suitable container next
to the mower to catch the used
oil, and then tilt the mower on
its right side.
The used oil will drain through
the filler neck. Allow the oil to
drain completely.
After draining, take the oil to
your local recycling center or
service station. Do not throw it
in the trash, pour it on the
ground, or pour it down a drain.

The SAE oil viscosity and service category are in the API label on the
oil container. Honda recommends API service category SJ or later oil.
Air Filter
Clean the air filter after the first 25 hours of use. Thereafter, clean the
filter every 6 months or 50 hours of use. Clean the filter more often
when used in dusty areas. Replace the filter every 2 years or 150
hours of use.
A properly maintained air filter will help prevent dirt from entering your
engine. Dirt entering the carburetor can be drawn into small passages
in the carburetor and cause premature engine wear. These small
passages can become blocked, causing starting or running problems.
NOTICE
Operating the engine without an air filter, with a damaged air filter, or
with an improperly installed air filter cover will allow dirt to enter the
engine, causing rapid engine wear. This type of damage is not
covered by the DISTRIBUTOR’S LIMITED WARRANTY (page 21).
We recommend the use of a Honda Genuine air filter to ensure it
seals and performs as designed. Using a non-Honda air filter can
result in dirt bypassing the filter, causing damage to the engine or fuel
system.
1. Press down on the cover tabs and remove the cover.
2. Remove the filter from the air cleaner housing.

If the engine has been running, allow it to cool before loading the
mower on the transport vehicle. A hot engine and exhaust system can
burn you and can ignite some materials.
Turn the fuel valve to the OFF position. This will prevent carburetor
flooding and reduce the possibility of fuel leakage.
If installed, remove the grass bag.
If a suitable loading ramp is not available, two people should lift the
mower on and off the transport vehicle while holding the mower level.
Position the mower so all four wheels are on the bed of the transport
vehicle. Tie the mower down with rope or straps, and block the
wheels. Keep the tie-down rope or straps away from the controls,
adjustment levers, cables, and the carburetor.
Fold the handlebar so the mower will take up less space (page 15).

protect your hands from the blades.
Be careful to avoid getting water into controls and cables.
.
Engine
Wash the engine by hand, and be careful to prevent water from
entering the air cleaner and exhaust opening.
NOTICE
Using a garden hose or pressure washing equipment can force water
into the air filter. Water in the air cleaner will soak the paper element
and can enter the carburetor or engine cylinder, causing damage.
Water contacting a hot engine can cause damage. If the engine has
been running, allow it to cool before washing.
Grass Bag
Remove the bag from the mower, and wash it with a garden hose or
pressure washer. Allow the bag to dry completely before storage.
Drying
After washing the lawn mower, wipe dry all accessible surfaces.
Place the mower with its wheels on a level surface. Start the engine
outdoors and let it run until it reaches normal operating temperature to
evaporate any water remaining on the engine.
1. Turn the handlebar adjust knobs 90 degrees to release the
locating pins .
2. Pull and hold the blade control lever .
3. Fold the handlebar forward ; do not pinch or kink the cable.
Removing From Storage
When unfolding the handlebar, be sure to lock the handlebar adjust
knobs to secure the handlebar in the mowing position.
Check your mower as described in BEFORE OPERATION (page 4).
If the cylinder was coated with oil during storage preparation, the
engine may smoke briefly at startup.
Stop the engine and allow it to cool.
After the lawn mower is clean and dry, touch up any damaged paint,
and coat other areas that may rust with a light film of oil.
Storage Location
If your mower will be stored with gasoline in the fuel tank and
carburetor, it is important to reduce the hazard of gasoline vapor
ignition. Select a well-ventilated dry storage area away from any
appliance that operates with a flame, such as a furnace, water heater,
or clothes dryer. Also avoid any area with a spark-producing electric
motor, or where power tools are operated.
Make sure the fuel valve is in the OFF position to reduce the
possibility of fuel leakage.
Place the mower with its wheels on a level surface. Tilting can cause
fuel or oil leakage.
With the engine and exhaust system cool, cover the mower to keep
out dust. A hot engine and exhaust system can ignite or melt some
materials. Do not use sheet plastic as a dust cover. A nonporous
cover will trap moisture around the mower, promoting rust and
corrosion.

Emission Control System
TECHNICAL INFORMATION
Source of Emissions
The combustion process produces carbon monoxide, oxides of
nitrogen, and hydrocarbons. Control of hydrocarbons and oxides of
nitrogen is very important because, under certain conditions, they
react to form photochemical smog when subjected to sunlight. Carbon
monoxide does not react in the same way, but it is toxic.
Serial Number Locations
Honda utilizes appropriate air/fuel ratios and other emissions control
systems to reduce the emissions of carbon monoxide, oxides of
nitrogen, and hydrocarbons. Additionally, Honda fuel systems utilize
components and control technologies to reduce evaporative
emissions.

High Altitude Operation
At high Altitudes, the standard carburetor air-fuel mixture will be too
rich. Performance will decrease, and fuel consumption will increase. A
very rich mixture will also foul the spark plug and cause hard starting.
Operation at an Altitude that differs from that at which this engine was
certified, for extended periods of time, may increase emissions.
High Altitude performance can be improved by specific modifications
to the carburetor. If you always operate your lawn mower at Altitudes
above 5,000 feet (1,500 meters), have your servicing dealer perform
this carburetor modification. This engine, when operated at high
Altitude with the carburetor modifications for high Altitude use, will
meet each emission standard throughout its useful life.
Even with carburetor modification, engine horsepower will decrease
about 3.5% for each 1,000-foot (300-meter) increase in Altitude. The
effect of Altitude on horsepower will be greater than this if no
carburetor modification is made.
NOTICE
When the carburetor has been modified for high Altitude operation,
the air-fuel mixture will be too lean for low Altitude use. Operation at
Altitudes below 5,000 feet (1,500 meters) with a modified carburetor
may cause the engine to overheat and result in serious engine
damage. For use at low Altitudes, have your servicing dealer return
the carburetor to original factory specifications.
U.S. and California Clean Air Acts, and Canadian
Environment Protection Act
U.S. EPA, California, and Canadian regulations require all
manufacturers to furnish written instructions describing the operation
and maintenance of emissions control systems.
The following instructions and procedures must be followed in order to
keep the emissions from your Honda engine within the emissions
standards.
Tampering and Altering
NOTICE
Tampering is a violation of Federal and California law.
Tampering with or altering the emissions control system may increase
emissions beyond the legal limit. Among those acts that constitute
tampering are:
• Removal or alteration of any part of the intake, fuel, or exhaust
systems.
• Altering or defeating the speed-adjusting mechanism to cause the
engine to operate outside its design parameters.
Problems That May Affect Emissions
If you are aware of any of the following symptoms, have your engine
inspected and repaired by your servicing dealer.
•
•
•
•
Hard starting or stalling after starting
Rough idle
Misfiring, backfiring under load, or afterburning
Black exhaust smoke or high fuel consumption
Replacement Parts
The emissions control systems on your new Honda engine were
designed, built, and certified to conform with EPA, California, and
Canadian emissions regulations. We recommend the use of Honda
Genuine parts whenever you have maintenance done. These
original-design replacement parts are manufactured to the same
standards as the original parts, so you can be confident of their
performance. The use of replacement parts that are not of the original
design and quality may impair the effectiveness of your emissions
control system.
A manufacturer of an aftermarket part assumes the responsibility that
the part will not adversely affect emissions performance. The
manufacturer or rebuilder of the part must certify that use of the part
will not result in a failure of the engine to comply with emissions
regulations.
Maintenance
Follow the MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE on page 10. Remember this
schedule is based on the assumption that your machine will be used
for its designed purpose. Sustained high-load or high-temperature
operation, or use in unusually wet or dusty conditions, will require
more frequent service.

FUEL SYSTEM MAINTENANCE
When properly maintained, your Honda lawn mower should provide years of trouble-free operation. This includes the fuel system.
However, gasoline can quickly deteriorate, causing starting or running problems and, in some cases, damage to the fuel system. Most
fuel-related problems can be avoided by following the precautions listed below. Fuel system damage and engine performance problems
resulting from deteriorated fuel are not covered by the Distributor’s Limited Warranty (see page 21).
During the Normal Mowing Season
Action
Reason
Do not use gasoline containing more than 10% ethanol.
A high level of ethanol in gasoline attracts water, and can corrode
or damage the fuel system and cause performance problems.
Store gasoline in a clean, plastic, sealed container approved for
fuel storage.
A clean plastic container will prevent rust and metallic
contaminants from entering the fuel system.
Store your fuel supply container away from direct sunlight; if the
container has a vent, keep it closed.
Gasoline will deteriorate faster when exposed to air and sunlight.
Purchase only enough gasoline to last for 30 to 60 days.
Gasoline deteriorates with age, so try to avoid storing it for long
periods, especially in summer heat.
If you purchase enough gasoline to last for more than 60 days,
add a fuel stabilizer to your storage tank when you fill it.
Fuel stabilizer will extend the shelf life of gasoline, but it will not
reconstitute stale fuel.
When you finish mowing, turn the fuel valve OFF and fill the
mower’s fuel tank.
If the fuel tank is only partially filled, air in the tank will promote
fuel deterioration.
3 to 4 Weeks Before Next Use
Action
Reason
Turn the fuel valve OFF and fill the mower’s fuel tank.
If the fuel tank is only partially filled, air in the tank will promote
fuel deterioration.
With the fuel valve off, start the engine and let it run until it runs
out of gas. Running time should be approximately 3 minutes.
The small amount of gasoline in your lawn mower’s carburetor
will deteriorate faster than the fuel in the fuel tank due to its small
volume and heat from the engine.
1 to 3 Months Before Next Use
Action
Reason
If you did not add fuel stabilizer to your fuel storage tank when
you filled it up, fill your mower’s fuel tank with fresh gasoline.
If the fuel tank is only partially filled, air in the tank will promote
fuel deterioration.
Add fuel stabilizer to the mower tank according to the stabilizer
manufacturer’s instructions.
Fuel stabilizer will extend the life of gasoline, but it will not
reconstitute stale gasoline.
Run the engine outdoors for 10 minutes.
To make sure treated gasoline has replaced untreated gasoline
throughout the fuel system.
Stop the engine and turn the fuel valve OFF. Restart the engine
and let it run until it runs out of gasoline. Running time should be
approximately 3 minutes.
The small amount of gasoline in your lawn mower’s carburetor
will deteriorate faster than the fuel in the fuel tank due to its small
volume and heat from the engine.
More Than 3 Months Before Next Use
Action
Start the engine and let it run long enough to empty all the
gasoline from the entire fuel system, including the fuel tank. Do
not allow gasoline to remain in your lawn mower for more than 3
months of inactivity.
Reason
All fuel stabilizers have a shelf life. It is good practice to empty
the fuel system for long term inactivity.
If you have fuel left in your storage container at the end of the season, the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) recommends
adding the gasoline to your car’s gas tank (http://epa.gov/reg5oair/mobile/winter.html), provided your car’s gas tank is fairly full.

What American Honda Will Repair or Replace Under Warranty:
American Honda will repair or replace, at its option, any Honda Power Equipment
parts, accessories, replacement parts, or apparel that are proven to be defective in

period. Anything replaced under warranty becomes the property of American Honda

damaged by collision, normal wear, use in an application for which the product was
not designed or any other misuse, neglect, incorporation or use of unsuitable
attachments or parts, unauthorized alteration, improper installation, or any causes
other than defects in material or workmanship of the product. Installing parts and
accessories on non-Honda products or engines voids this warranty.
Disclaimer of Consequential Damage and Limitation of Implied
Warranties:
American Honda disclaims any responsibility for loss of time or use of the product,
or the power equipment on which the product is installed, transportation,
commercial loss, or any other incidental or consequential damage. Any implied
warranties are limited to the duration of this written warranty. Some states do not

EMISSION SYSTEM WARRANTY
Your new Honda Power Equipment engine complies with the U.S. EPA,
Environment Canada, and State of California emission regulations (models
certified for sale in California only). American Honda Motor Co., Inc. provides
the emission warranty coverage for engines in the United States and its
territories. Honda Canada Inc. provides the emission warranty for engines in
the 13 provinces and territories of Canada. In the remainder of this Emission
Control System Warranty, American Honda Motor Company Inc. and Honda
Canada Inc. will be referred to as Honda.
YOUR WARRANTY RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS:
CALIFORNIA
The California Air Resources Board and Honda are pleased to explain the
emission control system warranty on your 2014 and later Honda Power
Equipment engine. In California, new spark-ignited small off-road equipment
engines must be designed, built, and equipped to meet the state's stringent
anti-smog standards. Specific Honda products that do not meet the California
emissions regulations can be identified by a “Not for sale in California” decal.
OTHER STATES, U.S. TERRITORIES, AND CANADA
In other areas of the United States and in Canada, your engine must be
designed, built, and equipped to meet the U.S. EPA and Environment Canada
emission standards for spark-ignited engines at or below 19 kilowatts.
ALL OF THE UNITED STATES AND CANADA
Honda must warrant the emission control system on your power equipment
engine for the period of time listed below, provided there has been no abuse,
neglect, or improper maintenance of your power equipment engine. Where a
warrantable condition exists, Honda will repair your power equipment engine at
no cost to you including diagnosis, parts, and labor.
Your emission control system may include such parts as the carburetor or fuel
injection system, the ignition system, and catalytic converter. Also included
may be hoses, connectors, and other emission-related assemblies (see page
2 for additional covered parts).
OWNER'S WARRANTY RESPONSIBILITY:
As the power equipment engine owner, you are responsible for completing all
required maintenance listed in your owner's manual. Honda recommends that
you retain all receipts covering maintenance on your power equipment engine,
but Honda cannot deny warranty coverage solely for the lack of receipts or for
your failure to ensure that all scheduled maintenance has been completed.
As the power equipment engine owner, you should however be aware Honda
may deny you warranty coverage if your power equipment engine or a part has
failed due to abuse, neglect, improper maintenance, or unapproved
modifications.
You are responsible for presenting your power equipment engine to a Honda
Power Equipment dealer as soon as a problem exists. The emission related
warranty repairs should be completed in a reasonable amount of time, not to
exceed 30 days.
If you have any questions regarding your emission warranty rights and
responsibilities, you should contact the Honda office in your region:

WARRANTY COVERAGE:
Honda power equipment engines sold in the United States and Canada are
covered by this warranty for a period of two years from the date of delivery to
the original retail purchaser or the length of the Honda Distributor’s Limited
Warranty, whichever is longer. This warranty is transferable to each subsequent
purchaser for the duration of the warranty period.
If any emission-related part on your engine is defective, the part will be repaired
or replaced by Honda without charge for diagnosis, parts, or labor. All defective
parts replaced under this warranty become the property of Honda. Only Honda
approved replacement parts may be used in the performance of any warranty
repairs and must be provided without charge to the owner. A list of warranted
parts is on the reverse side of this warranty statement. Normal maintenance
items, such as spark plugs and filters, that are on the warranted parts list are
warranted up to their required replacement interval only.
22
Honda will also replace other engine components damaged by a failure of any
warranted part during the warranty period.
The use of replacement parts not equivalent to the original parts may impair
the effectiveness of your engine emission control system. If such a
replacement part is used in the repair or maintenance of your engine, and an
authorized Honda dealer determines it is defective or causes a failure of a
warranted part, your claim for repair of your engine may be denied. If the part
in question is not related to the reason your engine requires repair, your claim
will not be denied.
TO OBTAIN WARRANTY SERVICE:
You must, at your own expense, take your Honda Power Equipment engine or
the product on which it is installed, along with your sales registration card or
other proof of original purchase date, to any Honda Power Equipment dealer
who is authorized by Honda to sell and service that Honda product during their
normal business hours. Claims for repair or adjustment found to be caused
solely by defects in material or workmanship will not be denied because the
engine was not properly maintained and used.
If you are unable to obtain emission warranty service or are dissatisfied with
the warranty service you received, contact the owner of the dealership
involved. Normally this should resolve your problem. However, if you require
further assistance, contact the Honda office in your region. Refer to adjacent
column for contact information.
EXCLUSIONS:
Failures other than those resulting from defects in material or workmanship are
not covered by this warranty. This warranty does not extend to emission control
systems or parts that are affected or damaged by owner abuse, neglect,
improper maintenance, misuse, misfueling, improper storage, collision, the
incorporation of, or use of, unsuitable attachments, or the unauthorized
alteration of any part.
This warranty does not cover replacement of expendable maintenance items
made in connection with required maintenance service after the item’s first
scheduled replacement as listed in the maintenance section of the product
owner’s manual, such as: spark plugs and filters.
DISCLAIMER OF CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGE AND LIMITATION
OF IMPLIED WARRANTIES:
American Honda Motor Co., Inc. and Honda Canada Inc. disclaim any
responsibility for incidental or consequential damages such as loss of time or
the use of the power equipment, or any commercial loss due to the failure of
the equipment; and any implied warranties are limited to the duration of this
written warranty. This warranty is applicable only where the California, U.S.
EPA, or Environment Canada emission control system warranty regulation is in
effect.
