hi everyone,
i was quite curious what brands of push mowers everyone used to do the tight quartered areas where the rider doesn't do the job. i use a lawn boy insight with a Honda engine 21" aluminum deck. it seems to do a simply excellent job. yes it was kinda pricey but all i can say is wow.

i use a John deere JS45 that your can buy at lowes, caster front wheels, i like it so far.

I would like some pics of this aluminum deck 21

if you want to push, the aluminum l/b is the way to go. I have an OLD 2stroke that sits as a backup and starts every time. Also toro proline 21" We've got at three speed two stroke and it hauls A$$!! That lawn boy will last you forever!

JX75 with 6hp Kawi. Alum decks are great my old Lawn Boy gold had one as well. Also they quit making the LB with offset wheels right?

yes they did. also lawnboy's are much better all around mower now that toro bought lawnboy out

Im pretty sure that Toro has always owned Lawnboy. I have had a Lawn Boy rider for almost 3 years and I have always heard it was a Toro product.

old ransomes push, not self propelled, mower with the steel deck. Had one that is going on its third motor. They're idiot proof for the idiots that destroy them

21" Honda - an old HR215 that starts on the 1st pull everytime

Do not own any 21's. The smallest is a Great Dane 32" Champ. Anything not accessable by that is weed whacker material.

Deere JX75

21" Toro Proline

I don't have a push mower, don't believe in 21's.

Now I've had to push the 48" around before but I wouldn't consider that :p

I've got 2 husquvarna 21's and they're done. The wheels keep clicking out of position, the handle broke and I had to weld it, the handles pop out of position, to many rocks have been hit with them (employees) and even though I've changed the blades, they have some wobble to them. Probibly the shaft.

SO I'm thinking about getting the Honda HRC216PDA. About $750 I believe, but the guys tend to use the 21's quite a bit for really severe hills, inside corners, small backyards, under low hanging trees, etc.. Anyone have this mower? How do you like it?

i aint got sh!t. Actually i've got 2 push mowers. John Deere of course!:weightlifter:

toro 21 / husky 21

JD 21" (whatever model was right below the jx75) but thats only used on my yard. Never had a gate that my 36" ferris wont fit through, even in the really really old parts of town where they installed those skeet gates.
