Honda recently announced the recall of two of its walk behind mowers and one Columbia brand electric start lawnmower with Honda engines. According to a recent Fox 17 News online article, the recall involves the popular Honda walk behind mowers which are red and silver (HRR) and red and gray (HRX), as well as some of the Columbia brand walk behind lawnmowers which come in orange and black with Honda printed over the engine cover.
Apparently this recall was initiated by Honda after receiving reports that the lawnmower’s blade continues to rotate after the handle bar control lever is released. Fortunately, no injuries were reported. Customers are warned to immediately stop using the recalled mowers and contact Honda to schedule a free repair. Approximately 28,000 lawnmowers are part of the recall in the United States.
