Well you also have to remember there is a difference between homeowner and estate or large land owner model. Our 33in mower is currently not a commercial unit, its an estate mower.

Im assuming but I think the toro super recycler, and even the honda hrx for that matter, Are estate mowers built better then to be used more.

Especial when you are first starting out and your not mowing 5-6 days a week 7-8 hrs a day you don't really need a commercial unit; not that its not nice to have one.

Thank you this helps a great deal. I bought a John Deer from Lowes for around $450.00 and it's a mess.

I am looking at a 2 cycle mower with a Robin engine. Anyone know how well these engines are? I know they run well in the EZ-GO golf cars but not sure about these in mowers.

Default ExMark

Got a 21" Exmark and love it. Has the Kawi engine and has been doing a great job.

Tried to send a photo again but got this message:

Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 134217728 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 47972001 bytes) in /usr/local/apache2/htdocs/gopherforum/forum/includes/class_image.php on line 2351


Never have been able to post any photos. What a rip.

honda mowers are well built wheels dont wear out as fast as most lower priced mowers and drive system is good on most honda's i have owned if you can pull it off buy a honda they simply do the job you want them to do .. the new honda mowers from the box stores have a diffrent honda motor not as good as buying from a mower shop that sells honda mowers ... for a little more do yourself a favor and buy a honda mower from your local honda mower shop/ dealer... ....
