Welcome to the site! As for brands I would stick with Exmark, Toro, scag, and hustler. That is my personal opinion. The exmark turf tracer is a great walk behind. Not sure on push mowers pre 1995. The newer push mowers are fine and last pretty long. As for trimmers the most popular is the Stihl fs 90r. That is what I use and it works out great. Hope this helps

Hi cutedge, thanks for your input. Just wondering why i hear so much bad negative things about the new push mowers mostly are made in china and have carb problems and plastic gears and such that doesnt sound good with me. Just with those chinese scooters junk junk. I trying to stick the years the mowers didnt go to china any ideas what year or years that happened.

I have a 18 year old toro super recycler and it is still running good. Have not had any problems with my 3 year old super recycler. My toro timemaster is 1 year old and has some tranny issues just like all of them but other than that it is holding up good.
