134 lbs. no thanks!

That's in the neighborhood of the Toro and Honda that is closely resembles.

Come on Pj. What's the scoop? Why is it so Honda-esque?

Twenty pounds heavier than the Toro zone start , big neighborhood if you ask me.

looks like a yellow painted honda to me

I'd seriously buy it if it were at least 15-20 pounds lighter and $100 cheaper. It's a nice looking machine.

Why does it only go 2.2mph? Most of the commercial 21" mowers I've seen go about 4mph. My homeowner grade Lawn Boy goes 5, if you can keep up with it. Maybe they'll come out with a Super M-1T that goes 15mph! lol Ok, maybe 5.

All the Kaaz handheld stuff looks like Tanaka equipment, and their mowers look like re-branded honda's.

Do we need another brand of handheld equipment, especially if its just re-branded equipment with a name that you can't take seriously?
