+1 on that

Expect the honda to outlast the mower. Go with kawi if you want power or need an oil filter.

My robin eh-18 had an oil filter. It cost more than oil for two changes and made a huge mess when doing so. Personally, these filters on push mowers aren't worth it. Unless you work in dust, then it's mandatory.

I have changed my mind about the Eastman. Since the bag was $250. I decided that i am going to go with a toro commercial. I am looking at the basic push mower with the kawi motor on it.

Have any of you used the toro commercial mowers?? I have seen a lot of them around lately.

Do you know of any 21" that has a throttle control any more?? I really need this because i do some thick,tall grass. So the control is always nice.
