Hi what is the difference between the 194 and 195 Honda mower?

2 answers
J k
J k

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.

If it starts first pull every time (and mine does too) can it do that for the Missus too? If so, just stay with the pull cord. May need to change Missus!!!

G'day mate,
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.

Thanks 3basS, turned out to be dirty fuel, all good again :)

Hi there,
I don't have the original manual either.
Perhaps try this link, http://cdn.powerequipment.honda.com/pe/pdf/manuals/31VA5030.pdf
It's the closest model denomination to the HRU194 manual I came across online or as far as my search found.
Hope that helps.

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.

Mine has a mulching plug that I fit when I want it to mulch. So the answer is yes & the mulching plug came from the Honda dealer.

I still have my old 194 and have a new 196. I don't see how the plug would fit. The assembly at the rear of each mower is entirely different.
