When I purchased new a Honda Commercial HRC216SXA 5.5 HP last in 1990 since for 10 years nothing there is the problem. I has 6 Honda mowers now. The Honda mower are the best engine, hydro transmission, and easy start just one pulling. Toro Prolife is good but problem of maintenance also I did witness with my family had one problem and friends, and Toro dealer that guy mechainc told me about the Toro. I am glad lucky not purchase one toro. Just trust me. I bet you will love it.
