Why does my Honda G200 197 slow down under load?

It runs OK, but when tackling thick coarse grass it struggles to keep running, I then have to increase the revs, back off and go in gently.

If the engine doesn't need a tune-up, then you need to sharpen the blade.

When a small engine "surges" in all speed ranges the possible causes are:

*Dirty air filter

*Water or contamination in the fuel system.

*Breaks in the spark plug wire (leaking), loose or corroded terminal connections causing an intermittent failure.

*Misadjusted or malfunctioning governor.

Problems with surging only when under load or at idle are likely caused by carb blockage or misadjustment.

Hope this helped and good luck to ya!

My immediate impression is that the float is "stuck open".

Pull the float-bowl, and check that:

a. the bowl and float are clean, and
b. the float moves freely, and
c. when it's in the "up" position, the flow of gas stops (which means that the needle is "seating" properly and doing its job)

Ok it need a governor adjustment,depending on the brand of engine, there should be a tab with a spring attached. U need to bend the tab slightly to increase the rpms.

SOURCE: Hello i have a Honda izy self propelled it is 3

sounds like your petrol filler cap hole is blocked , try and drill a hole in the cap or loosen the cap slightly , and change the spark plug , the izy can go through plugs regularly, you could try a good wire brushing and set the gap

good luck

It starts and runs for a bit but as soon as it hits thicker grass it dies


Joe Hi there. Sadly your trimmer will struggle on thick grass as it's not made for it. You could try moving the trimmer like a scythe. This will aid it as your cutting bit by bit.

This most often happens when you are mowing too much grass at once, or when the deck (or chute if you have a bagger) is clogging for some reason. Sometimes this is made worse by having dull blades. Usually mowing at a slower speed or mowing more frequently will help solve this. If the motor is struggling with the blades, these are usually the culprits. Clean your deck thoroughly, cut the lawn more often, or cut it slower.

In some cases, if your PTO belt may be worn, stretched, or need adjustment. When this happens, the motor will not slow down with the blades but will keep running normally and you may smell a burning rubber smell as the blades slow down.

Blade slows down when grass gets thick


Hello,

The reason the blade slows down when the grass gets thick is simply because the mechanism operating the blade is weak and cannot move fast when on thick grass.

I suggest you troubleshoot the mower. After that, the blade should work fine when the grass gets thick.

Also, some mowers normally gets slow when grass gets thick, so after troubleshooting, if the mower does the same, then you already know it has to be slow when trying to cut thick grasses.

Take care

Mower won't start


13 to 15 amps electric or battery operated mower may runs slow when cutting thick grass. also recommended not to cut grass when it's wet & need very sharp blade to do the lawn. may overloading it, cutting grass too thick also draws too much power. check house breaker first.
