Hi everyone. I'm in a similar situation to the first two guys on this thread. I'm working a 21" push mower kinda hard on a relatively flat, 3/4 acre lawn. A walk-behind is preferable for fitness reasons, but saving a few steps by mowing a wider swath is what I'm looking for. It's obvious the commercial units are better, and I have the mechanical skills to maintain and repair a used one, but it's not something I look forward to doing.
Some dealers recommended the Toro Timemaster, but a number of online reviews turned me off to it. I'm interested in the Billy Goat HP3400, but dealers invariably steer me away, toward higher-end commercial models or the Cub Cadet 760 walk-behind (not a consideration).
Are there any HP3400 owners here, or anyone who owns an alternative? Thanks in advance for any advice.
