We run 537 hrx,s hy , fantastic mower got 3 coming up to 3 years old and been used hard. Without doubt the HY , more controllable with a fixed handle to set forward speed which is easily altered on the move. We tried the VY but although the theory of the squeeze control on the handle maybe a good one in practice it's difficult to maintain a consistent forward speed due to uneven surfaces causing the handle to jolt and altering the speed along with having to have two hands on the handle, we just found it uncomfortable. Get the HY.
Ideally looking for something that mulches well with the option of collection. There was talk on here recently about the HRX being a great mulcher so wanted to know which on to get. Thanks guys
Does both well, you won't be disappointed
James, top tip ! Run the back wheels one notch higher than the front regardless of mulching or collecting we leave the back wheels on ours set on notch 3 permanently and alternate the front on notch two or one and a half depending on the job
May I ask why you do this?
James, it collects and mulches better as it keeps some air under the deck so when mulching the clippings are dissipated better and when collecting helps with the air flow into the bag. On all mowers it's only the front of the blade that cuts. We have tried all settings and it's undoubtedly the best.
Thanks Peter. That makes sense.
I shall be getting one this week hopefully
Just on a side note regarding the Hrx537, anyone know the best way to correct the front wheels splaying (not pointing straight) when the mower gets to 3 or 4 years old ?
Is it not just a case of taking the wheels off and bending the wheel washers again? They come with a slight bend in them to keep the tension but can get squashed flat after a while
