YAZOO has made a 24" self propelled for many years. mine is about 20 years old.

I think they make a 26" as well.

Thanks for all the replies.... :) I've looked at all of the product websites you guys have mentioned, but no sign of a 26. I wonder what gives...??

Then there's Sarlo mowers. They make a 26" and several other unusual sizes:

Here's another one:

By the way, I'm not saying one way or the other whether any of these are good or bad mowers, I'm just throwing them out here for the original poster to check out.

You Kids and Your High Wheel Mowers.....


Please Remember High Wheel Mowers are All Pure Homeowner Junk.

Look for Commercial 21"s.

Where did that come from?

I've been studying the 24-inch push-mower market for 2 years! The choices are all belt-driven models with 20-inch semipneumatic wheels:

1. Sarlo (624, 624SP, and 6234SPSW for swivel wheels)

2. Kee/Trailmate (KC-24 steel deck and an aluminum-deck series; many options)

3. Johnson Big Wheel.

4. Billy Goat

All appear to be very well built, though a Kee owner on another forum didn't like Kee's SP design, which he felt was prone to slip. I think they've fixed that design.

Sarlo, Kee, and Johnson all switched in 2003 or 2004 from Briggs I/C 6hp to Intek Pro 6.75 HP.

The Kee KC-24 can be ordered with the largest engine: 8.0, 8.5, 9, or 10.5hp Briggs I/C or Intek Pro, depending on which dealer's site you visit. (Make sure the engine you think you'll get is the one you'll really get). However, they list a weight of 135 lb, about 30 lb more than Sarlo and Johnson.

The Johnson appeals to me the most, for three reasons: a brilliant frame design that makes engine weight largely irrelevant; a blade brake clutch (which I think is missing from Sarlo and Kee), and front wheels that tuck in to provide more clearance. The Johnson designer designed the original Yazoo.

Sarlo has been specializing in big-wheeled, belt-drive walk-behinds for about 30 years. They sell primarily in the Southeast, where ground can be soft.

Billy Goat is the newest design.

I'm just a homeowner who is tired of busting a wheel every year on my 0.8 acre of soft ground pocked by gopher holes. I'm about to buy a Sarlo 622SP (22 inch, 16-inch wheels). It's smaller than I'd like but I can get the old I/C version for $599 shipped. Also, I didn't find a Gator blade listed for the Sarlo's size (23.5 inches), and I believe that Gator makes blades that will fit the smaller 22-inch model.

The 624I/C (not self propelled) with the older, 6hp I/C engine can be had for $$579 plus shipping from the same place: http://www.lawnmowersrus.com/clearancesale.html (price not given but quoted by phone).
