Yep, I agree with all the other guys about Honda - for me, I've owned a Honda, 2 Lawn-Boys, 2 Snappers, and a Toro over the years. . . (all commercial models)

Toughest Mower: Snapper
Best Cut: Toro
Best Overall: Probably the Honda
Best Bagging System: Lawn-Boy, hands down

I don't think there is one "best". They're all well built, and will be suited to different applications.

I've since sold the Toro and the older Snapper, and one of the Lawn-Boys conked on me. The Snapper and Honda are still going strong.

I personally like my 21" Honda, Lightweight and give a good cut.

I'd like to try out other blades to do a comparison.
When did you sharpen your blades last

Soon enough where it should make a difference, but it really didn't.

I have one of those also and they are pretty nice I must admit the caster wheels are nice for trimming around trees

My favorite mowers are the ones my neighbors put out at the street 'cause they can't get them started anymore.

Clean out the old gas, clean out the float bowl and main jet, top off with oil, sharpen the blade. Done.

I am mowing with a free mower right now and gave away at least 2 or 3 in the last couple of years to people who needed them.

"If it's free, it's for me."
