The HT-R3009 is a riding lawnmower by the Honda Motor Company. Honda originally produced the HT-R3009 in the mid-1980s; the mower is no longer in production. The HT-R3009 is designed primarily for use on flat surfaces and can mow up to 63,000 square feet of lawn per hour at its top speed of 4.9 miles per hour.

Engine Specifications

A four-stroke, one cylinder overhead valve engine powers the HT-R3009. The engine's bore is three inches and the stroke is 2.3 inches, yielding an overall engine displacement of 16.5 cubic inches. The engine has a 1.2 quart oil capacity and is cooled by a forced air system. The fuel tank can hold up to 0.53 gallons of gasoline.

Operating Conditions

Doing so may cause the lawnmower to overturn. If you must mow on a sloped surface, you should drive straight up and down the face of the slope.
