I did a search and actually read about 150 of 230 or so results and still need some input. I am currently looking to purchase a new 21" mower. I don't want to spend over $700 for it as I only have 2 yards that i would need to use it on and the other yards I can use the bigger equipment. I was looking at the JD jx65 (I believe this is the model or it could be the jx75) with the option of side or rear discharge and the mulching optionfor $495. Is this a good machine and is this a good price? I was using a honda 3 speed until my worker sent it down a cliff yesterday. How does the JD compare to the Hondas? Any suggestions on a quality 21" mower would be greatly appreciated.
