  • New Mower

    Well August has been my best month, so much so I have broken down and bought my first commercial mower.
    Today I bought a Honda HRC2163HXC
    Features
    Honda GXV160 OHV commercial grade engine
    Roto-Stop® blade stop system for safety and convenience
    Hhydrostatic infinitely- variable speed self-propelled transmission


    I have to wait till Tuesday due to the Holiday Monday to pick it up.
    I will post some pick when I get it.

        It was between a toro22197 or the Honda HRC2163HXC
        What made up my mind was several minus for the Toro
        1) the speed shift was a plastic lever you shifted with your foot
        2) having to hold the clutch handle 1/2 way closed to start.
        3) belt driven not direct drive.
        4) way too many non-replaceable plastic parts.

        Honda was way ahead in all categories and its a shame because I have always like Toro.
        Price was also a factor but not the main one I got the Honda for $300 dollars less then that Toro.
        Only time will tell if I chose right.

            From a mechanical standpoint I think you chose right. I still think if you found a older push mower when things were built better you would have just as good of a mower. The only thing I do not like about the commercial push units is I think they are over priced.

                Not always, I have sold mowers for a long time and adjusting for inflation most mowers have honestly dropped in price.

                            So there is no discharge with this unit? I take it you bag the clippings for the lawns you look after?
