I just bought a used commercial toro, cant wait to see what all the hype is about. By the way I think this topic was discussed in depth before.

If you Honda is more reliable than your John Deer Then shoould give Toro Proline a try. Toro is more reliable than Honda and more productive, easier to use and even though Toro's transmission is belt drive it will out last Honda's hydro.

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.

I think this is close to the poster's intended input.

"In 1990 I bought a Honda Commercial HRC216SXA 5.5 HP. This mower worked well for me with no problems for 10 years. I have owned 6 Hondas now. I think Honda makes the best mower engines with easy one pull starting. The hydro transmissions on the mowers are also very good.

Toro Proline is a good mower, however friends and family who have owned them have had some mechanical issues. The mechanic at the Toro dealer also confirmed some of these same problems. I'm glad that I didn't buy Toro.

Go with the Honda! Trust me I think you will love it."
