this is the model #hrc2163hxc
it will last many years if you do regular maintenance my dad has had a Honda mower from 1988 it still runs and cuts the grass once a week, it smokes a little but its over 20 years old, i even use it on my mowing routes some weeks as a second mower
X2.....i bought the HRC and used it exclusively last year after purchase. Its a tank, runs great, cuts great, and the only downside is its a bit heavier than your typical residential. Not saying thats a bad thing though, because once i got used to it, it became the "norm". Id say spend the extra money for the HRC model and you wont go wrong. will last many years from what ive heard.
