Hi what is the difference between the 194 and 195 Honda mower?
Main difference is the engine used, the HRU194 uses the GXV120 (approx 120cc), while the HRU195 uses the GXV140 (approx 140cc), both are 19” cut (being the number 19 in both model numbers, also HRU214 and HRU215 are 21” cut), the 4 in the model number HRU194 refers the the number of horsepower (4hp), likewise the 5 in HRU195 equates to 5hp (approximately). Both have a great reputation and parts are still readily available. I’ve read the GXV140 used a plastic cam to drive the pushrods but I think this may be version dependant.
Hi all, I have been given a honda hru194. My misses wants to get a new one as it is missing the starter recoil unit to start it. However it does start on first pull every time now I've given it a service. Can anyone tell me what starter recoil unit to buy or what other honda models have interchangeable recoil units that will fit the hru194? Thanks Trent.
I have a HRU 194, bought second hand, was starting first pull. All of a sudden fires up then dies??? any suggestion what might be the problem?
Hard to say, but the first thing It be checking/replacing would be the spark plug.
If that doesn't solve the problem which it probably won't entirely next would be to check the magneto that produces the spark and/or the fuel system like the carb and air filters. These are things you can all check yourself without spending too much money.
After that might be best to take it to a mower shop as it could be something to do with the engine components and being an older machine might require a partial rebuild.
Sounds like it might be a fuel issue as you mentioned it starts which means it must have a spark (but replace Spark plug anyway) then dies afterward hence more than likely a car by issue.
Check the oil as well!
Hope that helps you.
Good luck, worth your while to sorting out I reckon as it's a great machine and at least you'll know where you stand at that point condition wise.
Could I possibly get a User Manual for Honda HRU194 Buffalo Lawnmower we have had this for about 30 years still a great mower just need to replace a few parts and need to find there parts description
I have had my 194 since new in 1985, never missed a beat , changed oil every end of summer, cleaned air filter after each mowing using air tool of my compressor. Hit a rock the other week and now have a large crack in the chassis. Can anyone advise me where I could source a replacement chassis, new or second hand
Hello , To a Honda Mower repairer , if the parts you require are to expensive if he has a second hand one from a un reapairable mower. YOU COULD EVEN TRY A NON Honda repairer as some of the mowers used by a professianl grass contractor would be at that state of repair.
