Don't lawnmowers propel enough scary things into the air? At Honda, we've always been concerned about clean air. And while we can't do anything about the ambrosiafranseriaflying around your backyard, we can do something about your mower's emissions. Since 1982, we've been building environmentally responsible mowers with our unique overhead valve engine. Long before clean-air regulations existed. Compared to many lawnmowers with side-valve engines currently in use, Hondas generate lower hydrocarbon and carbon monoxide emissions. And achieve up to thirty percent better fuel economy Plus, thanks to our mulching technology, Honda mowers deliver fine-cut grass clippings back to your lawn. Instead of to landfills. This kind of thinking is nothing new at Honda. Throughout our 19 years of building products here in America, our goal has always been the same: To balance your desire for fun and performance with society's need for cleaner air. This philosophy leads to products like our clean mowers, which let you concern yourself with other things when mowing the lawn. After all, who knows when you may encounter a taraxacum officinale. Thinking. Thinking.
