|Honda 1st in safety:
Rotation of the lawn mower blade is immediately stopped when the blade lever is released, and the mechanism propelling the lawn mower is stopped when the drive lever is released. Honda was the first company in the world to incorporate these mechanisms this lead the U.S. government to establish regulations that made these features mandatory.
Roto-Stop® : There is no need to restart the engine every time you step away from the mower. This feature allows you to easily disengage the blade, but keeps the engine running. That way you can empty the bag, move debris or toys out of the way or drive over sidewalks without having to stop, and then restart, the engine.Fly Wheel Brake (Also known previously as Zone Start): The flywheel brake safety system quickly stops the engine and the blade once operator-presence control is released.
Shaft drive: refers to the solid shaft that transfers engine
power to the transmission (drive wheels) on self propelled lawn
mowers. Available from Honda in the Masters and Commercial series.
