Honda Mowers are top value for money. My HRU19 runs perfectly. So dies my 1985 HRU214.

Good

my grandfather contracted with the same honder hru194 that i now use for 17 years. when he up graded to a hru19r1 he had problems with oil leaks out of the governor vain linkage and sump gasket. when he returned it for service he was told that it was nothing to worry about and to continue using it. after 10 hours of use it leaked 1/2 of its total oil capacity in one week of sitting unused, so he demanded that it was fixed. it was repaired under warranty. since then he hasn’t had any major problems accept for a occasional air filter. and yes my Honda is still going strong after 21 years of service.
easy starting, easy to maintain, good solid construction
air filter gets bloked easily, service and parts is very costly

Buffalo Buck HRU19R1

Am using this mower for the first time What do I need to do to start the motor?

Turn the fuel flow on, if it isn't already on, push the throttle all the way forward as far as you can (this activates the choke) then pull the cord. Once the engine fires pull the throttle back midway and let it idle and warm up. I never turn my fuel off and the mower starts 1st pull 98% of the time and always on the 2nd pull if it didn't start 1st pull.

On my mower, turn fuel on (I also always leave mine on), hold the engine brake lever on the handle in, and pull the starter.

Best oil and what quantity

Depends on the engine. If it's a GXV160 then it's 0.65 ltrs but if it's a GSV190 or a GCV160 then it's 0.55 ltrs. Any good quality motor oil will do the job.
