What are the main features of Honda IZY-ON 416XB Cordless Lawn Mower?

A cordless version of the popular IZY petrol mower, this has the familiar steel deck and is powered by a 36V battery with a fast charge time of just 35 minutes. Once fully charged it can mow a lawn 365m² on a single charge and the battery power level is visible on the handle while you’re mowing. It has six different heights of cut ranging from 20-74mm and a large, 50 L fabric grass box, although this doesn’t have a ‘full’ indicator, which would be helpful. The battery and charger are included with the mower.

What is Honda IZY-ON 416XB Cordless Lawn Mower like to use?

This mower came from the dealer ready to go apart from the fabric grass bag, which needed the frame attaching and was a little tricky. The handle height is adjustable to suit your size and there are two simple levers at the front and the back to change the height of cut. It’s well designed, very simple to use and delivers a high-quality cut. It also feels substantial and built to last.

Is the Honda IZY-ON 416XB Cordless Lawn Mower easy to store?

The handle folds down flat over the body of the mower and the fabric bag can sit neatly on top, but it takes up more room than some of the other mowers with handles that fold in half. It also lacks carry handles. It’s not as heavy as one might expect, given the steel deck, but handles would certainly make carrying it out of storage or up and down steps easier.

Is the Honda IZY-ON 416XB Cordless Lawn Mower good value for money?

In the premium price range at £650 this is a high quality, well-made mower. It has simple features but those it has are well thought out and executed. It comes with a two-year warranty and we think it’s good value for money. Plus, the battery and charger are interchangeable with other Honda Universal Battery tools, saving you money in the future when you buy more kit.

Who is the Honda IZY-ON 416XB Cordless Lawn Mower most useful to?

This is ideal for medium-sized gardens and anyone who wants a simple, high-quality mower that’s built to last.
