Lug three mowers around in a small pickup to do comparisons and enjoy the odd looks ya get when pulling up to mow. The Honda is quieter and the Nexite wheels with sealed bearings are great but thats where my tests ended for Honda. I'd have no probs with the Honda if I didn't have a Snapper with the Kawasaki.

We use Honda push mowers and they work great. I have used lawn boy and they are very light and cut good also.

I bought a HRR series last year. Already had it in for sputtering last fall. (Carb needed cleaned??) Its been going for a few months and is running like crap again. I spent $500. because Honda "is so great". I've never had so many probs with a regular B&S engine. Its truely despicable. And it is only for trim and smaller areas!
