How many lawns are you doing? Will this be your main mower? Do you plan on continuing with your business after high school/college?

I will say it first.

Don't buy something JUST because you have credit there.

Stick with your current mower for a bit longer and save the $$$ to buy the Honda... I don't run anything special and do it part-time like you... but my Honda makes my life (and wife since she is the one using it) happy... I get stuck using an older Tecumseh mower... but I will say.... at 15-16 years old and being a $200 mower, it does an excellent job :lol:

Throw 50 bucks a week in a hiding place a couple of months you will have the cash for it.

I should add.... I do about the same load as you and I use a $200 mower that is 15 years old... as much as I want a larger mower with a hydro drive... I just bought a house, so I won't have the money for a bit longer (although, I now have the space to store it :-) )
