Can the hru19 take Penrith mc4st 15w-50 oil? Don’t know what model except for hru19 buck.
How do I start it ive filled it with petrol checked the oil is right I've only just been given it no instructions with it.
The cord wouldnt retract to start off with I fixed that and made sure it wound back in neatly. Now the cord wont pull out all the only a fraction when I put the cover back on . Something is stopping it. When I take the cover off to inspect it wounds in and out fine
What's the issue ?
Take to your nearest Honda Dealer
What should you do if the two blades come loose and start tilting at an angle? The bolts don't seem to be engineered to stop this tilting.
Hi Chindoly - I checked my lawn mower over the weekend and mine doesn't seem to be having this issue. I bought my Honda at an authorised Honda retailer and had my extra 2 blades installed by them at the time of purchase, so if I was experiencing this problem I would go back to them to rectify. I hope this helps.
The blades are purposely designed to swing back when they strike a hard object. They do this to save your blades and crankshaft. The blade swings straight when engine is engaged due to constant gravity
Jeremy.jeraki , don't you mean "centrifugal force" causes the blades to straighten when the engine is running?
Will the current GXV160 fit onto my 2008 model HRU19D chassis?
Sorry, I have no idea. Best to ask a Honda Mower person, but you would think the mounting would be the same.
If the mounting bolts line up maybe, not sure of the disc plate.
Hi 007 Jenno3,
Thanks for your question.
Unfortuantly the bolt pattern is different - the GXV160 will only match up with 2 of the 4 bolt holes.
Best to order replacement parts for GCV160 engine - if its salvageable.
If youhave any further questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org
How many blades should it have. 2 or 4. I have one and it only has 2 blades?
how do I change the oil?
1.Turn fuel valve off. Drain oil while engine is warm.
2. Wipe oil filler area clean and remove cap.
3. Place container next to mower to catch used oil. Tilt mower on its right side. Oil spout on bottom fuel tank up top. Used oil drains from the filler neck. Drain all.
4. Fill with recommended oil. Do not overfill. Engine oil capacity 0.65 litre for GXV160 and 0.55litre for GSV190/GCV160
5. After changing oil and before starting check oil level with dip stick. Upper level of dip stick is good. Screw in dip stick.
6. Sae 10w- 30 4 stroke oil. Always check the API service label on the oil container to be sure it includes the letters SG or higher ( or equivalent)
How do you convert the air intake on the hru19r to a snorkel intake?
We do not recommend modifying your original HRU19 Lawnmower unless there is a specific Accessory for this model. It is best to talk to your local Honda dealership to see if there is a kit available, Cheers
What is the engine CC?
Hi Bhupen, Dylan from Honda Australia here. As a Marketing guy that question is a little out of my reach, but I just spoke to our Service Technician who informs me that the engine cc on the Buffalo Buck is 160. The older version (pre-2011) used to be 163cc, so depending on how new your model is, that's what will be powering you. It's a GCV160 engine. For all the engine's other spec's (fuel consumption, oil capacity, etc, check out this website: http://powerequipment.honda.com.au/GC_Engines/GC160
which side do you tip the machine to clean under it ?. looking from the back.
Hi Roger - Always tip the mower with the carb side up!
how to fit the snorkel for honda HRU19R ?Any pictures of lawn mower with snorkel?
Sorry no pics as I am interstate. It replaces old air filter cover but you leave the original paper filter in place and have an additional one in the snorkel. Ended up sourcing from Victa as they had the the parts contract.
Where can I get a Honda HRU19D from?
Hi ashlyn, Dylan here from Honda Power Equipment head office. Unfortunately we don't make the HRU19D any more! You might be able to pick one up second-hand, otherwise I'd encourage you to head into your closest authorised Honda dealership and speak to the staff there - they'll be able to help you out, no problems. To find your closest dealer visit http://dl.hondampe.com.au
**BEWARE SERIAL OFFENDERS** Keep in mind ashlyn, whether buying online or in a store (no matter how large), a genuine Honda product will have its SERIAL NUMBER ENGRAVED INTO THE ENGINE. It has come to our attention that imposters are importing Honda-branded engines that are not designed for Australian conditions - please ensure that the serial number has not been ground down/covered by a sticker, as it may not be covered by Honda's warranty or backed by our servicing dealer network, and questions the intent of the seller. For more information see www.hondaserialoffenders.com.au.
I hope this helps!
