Honda equipment

Anyone out there have much experience with Honda's equipment? I'm wondering how their walk behinds and trimmers compare to say exmark and echo.

Here is one person who was not happy with their Honda purchase.

I personally think their engines are superior to many others available on the market!!!

I have had my Honda 7013 48"Hydro for just over a year with no problems,other than the air filter plugging and setting of the oil alert.Great mower once I got used to it,Great hight adjustment for a fixed deck.Honda engines are top notch ,I have run doubles on it too ! May invest in the snoblower for this winter.

Thanks Kris, you saved me the trouble of posting it again. But, the true gear is terrible. The cut is pretty good, but handling and parts are not. My advice is to stay away from them.
