its a shame that a good design went out of style/couldn't get parts

I was looking at a 36" HRC7113TXA and the owner said it was hydrostatic drive. Did that version have optional drive systems? Is the HRC7113TXA a fixed height deck? Are parts for that model obsolete?
Thanks in advance. Have a great day!

HRC7018 / HRC7020: 18/20hp with 52" or 60" decks. Twin hydrostatic drive motors.

HRC7113: Gear-drive version (lower cost). Slightly different controls.

The HRC7013 (first built in 1993) is the oldest, and generally speaking, the older the unit, the more likely parts will be discontinued or No Longer Available. For example, the carburetor for the original HRC7013 is discontinued.

All of the Honda commercial walkbehind mowers are old now and very difficult to get parts for. That mower dates from 1998. Find another mower.

The HRC7113 was only a gear-drive model.
The HRC7013 was only a hydrostatic drive model.
Neither had optional drives or were interchangeable.

Decks (36" and 48") were adjustable in mowing height from in both a low and high range:
Low 1.5~3.5 inches
High 3.5~5.5 inches

Some parts are completely discontinued; both the 7113 and 7013 have been out of production for 12+ years. Honda will continue to offer many parts as long as there is demand, but parts are indeed gone for good.

I used to have two 48s years ago. Great mowers, awesome height adjustment, but like everyone else said, good luck getting parts. The guy I bought mine from put Briggs motors on them so I never never had issues with motor stuff. Just spindles and what not.
