Which walk behind mower would you choose?

I'm trying to decide which walk behind between these two below;

the Honda HRX217HXA 190cc

or the Toro Super bagger 20197-Recoil 6.5hp that has the GCV 160 Honda OHC

I'm just starting out so I can't afford with everything considered a true commercial unit at this point. Also alot of the houses around here have very very small fronts yards so many of the front yards I plan on doing with the WB.

Please list your reasons why for either of the 2.

I do like the idea of the Honda with the Twin Micro cut blades but is the cut that much better for the extra cost?

Much appreciated, Darryl

Thanks Maddog, The honda is what I'm definately leaning towards & will most likely get.

Do the twin blades do a significantly better job mulching & give a much more noticable manicured look over all?

the thread title should be "Which PUSH mower would you choose?" there is a big diffrence between a push mower and a walkbehind mower.

You know I bought the HRC Honda commercial mower with the hydro static transmission and it has been a great mower. The Over head cam engine is bullet proof. You will be very happy with your purchase especially when you see the cut.
