I have a Honda HRC 216 the hydro model. Very reliable used for at least 5 years with 75 accounts. Love it but you have to bag. Any others you could recommend. Thanks in advance love the site.

Get a toro commercial. Get the honda engine model and it should last a long time for trim work.

the HRC is a mulch capable mower. and it mulches great. every place that sells the HRC claims it has a rear discharge chute thats available. it ends up bending a round the side of the mower to discharge tot he side. BUT I have not see it in person. I have a simlar style chute on the Scotts mower at my house. and it works well... i woudl assume that liek anything honda does if they do in fact make it it's don right but you'll probably end up paying 100 bucks for it...

thanks guys. I do have the mulch kit it doesn't work very well. Mower gets bogged down. I will have to try the rear side discharge chute though. Thanks for the help, any other suggestions are welcome.

Get the toro commercial! Lighter than the honda and easier to fix.

Because he clearly needs a 21" machine, not a wide cut WB !!
