My Honda Izy HRG 415 PD 15 has just died after five years of service. Which, actually is really quite amazing,considering its use. Acccording to Honda, this machine is designed for a garden about the size of half a tennis court. Well I've been using mine to cut an area approximately the size of four whole tennis courts, including orchard and some rough scub and weeded areas along a river bank. In the height of summer, thats twice a week. It's been in a flood and suffered a smashed blade. However, due to Honda's high build and component quality, it has continued to work relentlessly. Starting first time every time, even once drained after the flood. This is a quailty product, which if used correctly within Honda's designed usage peramiters and serviced regulary, would probably never wear out. Buy one.
