Self Propelled Mower Recommendation

My current mower is a Scotts front wheel drive with larger wheels in the rear. It does not seem to develop very good traction while mowing my St. Augustine lawn even though the front drive appears to be working fine. I have knee arthritis and need a mower that can pull itself along in 3" St Augustine turf. My lot is not large enough to justify a rider. Thanks in advance.

That's some really hardy St Augustine to be growing in MI. I would look at rear wheel drive machines. The cheapo Honda or Toro should work in this scenario. I'm guessing this is a vacation home in FL, maybe one of the FL boys will chime in.
