    The only problem with them is no one has parts for them.

    Agree it's tough to find hinda parts and service...Toro would be my first choice since it's easy to find dealers, parts etc.

    depends too what your doing and how much...

    I love mine on bermuda, but it just doesn't create great suction so the cut on fescue could be better. Trying to scoop up a used toro or exmark...or maybe a snapper hyvac. I think the pair would be a good combo. Just my $.02- and I have amazing dealer support w/ the hondas.

    I agree they cut well on lower settings but if you are trying to cut fescue our KYB at 3in+ they leave stragglers. Personally I use toro/ lawn boy and I couldn't be happier much lighter than the hondas $400 cheaper and the best cut I have ever come across.

    I run two 21" commercial hondas, HRC21 I think is the model. These things have taken a beating and still run like a top. I did have to replace an engine on one of them earlier this year but it was my own effing fault - long story. I think I had that one for 3 years before replacing engine. They run around $1200 with tax in my area and worth every penny IMO. The twin blades really do a great job mulching and that's what we do 99% of the time. Out of around 150 accounts I think there are only 4 or 5 that "require" us to bag it.
