    It's not the domestic it's the HRU196 with the GXV160 as this is the same engine as the 21" I wonder if it doesn't extend through to the HRU216 mowers, worth keeping in mind if you do have any problems
    Anything Ian says may or may not be garbage, it may also be his own opinion or it may not be his opinion at all, it may just be something he felt like stating anyone following his advice does so at their own risk and may be doing something Ian would actually advise against.
    And if you don't like what Ian has to say use the ignore function if you don't know how ask i will gladly tell you

    In find the standard clutch slips very easily even when new.

    I replace with an aftermarket one with a grey coating and it never wears out. I've rotated the same few discs over every mower for years now lol

    I busted a clutch cable but I don't think I've ever had the clutch replaced. My HRU216M2 has been going for 7 years now. **** where does the time go.

    I bought a HRU216M3 about 3 months ago. I find the clutch slips very easily in overgrown or wet grass. Never had the problem with my previous 216's. I asked my mower shop what has changed and they said nothing, probably just need to increase the rpm's, which I'm not keen on doing.
    Also, without the snorkel I'm having clean the air filter daily when dusty as compared to only using 2 filters a year with the M2.

    Yeah revs will just burn out the clutch quicker

    I've found the stock clutch slips in long wet grass very easily.... sounds like engine is bogging down but it's just blades slowing... ridiculous

    If you only ever mow regular lawns you may never notice


    Best thing I ever did was put that aftermarket clutch on

    Easiest way to test if the clutch isn't holding strong enough is to flip mower on side... if you can turn blade carrier around by hand without excessive effort then that's how easy it's gonna slip when mowing.... with the new clutch I can just turn it with a huge effort

    I must say that besides the slipping issues..... it's a great feature... I would never go back to a mower without it... empty catcher without crap flying everywhere.... drive back to truck with grass bags on top without blades going etc...

    Some of us are catcherless
    i still have a 216D i use and would prefer that.The M2 sits as backup,everyone uses what suites them best.

    Fair enough... I think they could do a lot better that's for sure.... Stihl has an EFI chainsaw and cut off saw and Honda gives us this lol
