Your Favoriot 21 inch mower

I have no intention in buying another 21 this year or next, but I just want to see what all you guys pick for the best push mower.

Need none of the above; As far as 21"'s go I prefer Ariens you can put the snapper blade with wings that does wonders with wet grass

I am surprised you don't have Honda. I used to run the Toro commercial 21" mowers, they are well made, and very durable, but also very heavy. I mostly use a 21" in places where I can't get a bigger machine, like several lawns that had sections only accessible by going up and down stairs. I found the Honda HRX 217K2VKA It has the light-weight deck, super tough, great cut, easy to use and relatively inexpensive. The one I have now is on its 3rd yr and apart from oil changes and air-filter changes, it has needed nothing. It has the Smart Drive, a lot like the system on a Personal pace mower, but better built.

I love using this mower.

I got a new Honda HRC216 last week and after about fives with it I wouldn't trade either of the Snappers for it!

Snapper for me. I love their drive system. Ninja blade sucks though, in my opinion.

I disagree, my ninja blades cut pretty nice compared to all my other 21s

Oh really? I haven't had good luck with mine. They do mulch good, very well. However, I'm not pleased with their cut, seems like I leave too many stragglers on some lawns. Also bags well.

I'd like to try out other blades to do a comparison.
