In need of cheap self propelled push mower

Would like to get one with a honda engine. Looking at husqvarna, troy bilt, and also looked at lawnboy with the kohler. So whats the best of the worst?

It will be used on three nice lawns every week and rough lots every two weeks

What do you consider "cheap"?

Have a price range in mind?

Not sure if the same deals are in effect but at my local home depot all push mowers were deeply discounted. I don't remember exact prices but there were toros and lawn boys at good prices. They had echo srm225's at 150$you (regularly 215 or 220)

Not sure what you mean by cheap but if you weren't planning on spending much over $100 you won't get a Honda engine,
it's that simple, there exist good deals but ultimately you will usually get what you pay for.
Honda HRR's normally sell for $400 if you can get one for less, you're most likely still looking at spending $300 thou...
Those are nice machines, and if you can find one for $300 that is cheap for a Honda.

Would it be silly to contact Just-Mowing and speak with them? They are in Tx.

Go to a box store and buy. After all, you did say cheap!
