I had a Honda 21" hydro drive/elec. start I bought in 2000. Looked up the invoice, I paid $879 back then. Looks like that is one thing that hasn't gone up in cost over the years. Gave it to my dad a couple years ago and he loves it. It has never had any problems. I started using John Deere and I have their newest 22" elec. start. It retails I believe for $499. It has a far superior cut when mulching. Bagging, not so much so. I mulch everything.

I got what you need......Lawnboy with start. Got it for my wife and it has sit for awhile. I got it out cleaned it carb and charged battery and it started. They are a little easier to move around than Honda and Toro. I still haven't figured out to ship stuff so mine is not availabl.e
