Americans know it as the 800 series. I run one on my Rover Pro Cut, and they are a good engine. Many contractors dropped Honda when they stuffed the design of the rear shoot and made it small. Always clogging in damp grass.
The Rover 22inch has the gearbox ontop of the deck, which allows a full width rear shoot. Never cloggs up. They are also built like a tank, but light enough with alloy deck.
Interested in your plastic mower, but 6 months? My Rover deck will last 6 years or more. How much are the replacement decks?
i bought a small honda push mower back in 1995 that was made of the ABS plastic and i still have that machine on my trailer today.
granted, i don't use small mowers much and i have a occassional small patch to do but the mower has been used and subjected to being on a trailer with big mowers for 17 years and i was a skeptic at first but it has held up nicely.

plastics have come a long way and our cars are mostly plastic and there are motors partially made of plastic so i would not worry about a plastic mower deck.

if it is made of the same high quality as the honda i own i would have to think he was exaggerating on the 6 mos stuff.

I have one of these mowers too. I dont think its the same material. The honda plastic deck is patented. Its heavy 80-90lbs.

i am sure it is heavier than the newer stuff but it is not even close to 80-90lbs.
maybe we are talking two different machines but the one i got is like 5 hp or so like 22 in cut with rear bagger.
it is not self propelled but when the bag gets full it does get heavy.

all in all it is not a bad machine for what little i use it.
