    What is the best push mower to use on residential accounts. I need one that will last more than a month.

    Honda hydro, and Toro proline\Exmark metro 21. Are the two top of the line 21-inch mowers.

    The Honda is the best bagger bar none. It is an excellent bagger in dry, as well as in adverse wet and thick conditions . Despite the new twin blade micro cut setup on the redesigned 2005 and later Honda's, Toro is slightly the better mulcher, and with the kawi engine option, has a gallon gas tank.

    All in all I come down on the side of the Honda as the best all around 21-inch mower,best bagger, good mulcher, reliable mechanically.

    we use toro prolines with the honda engines on them, we have cut thousands of yards this year using them and them only. we have had to modify somethings on them, but over all they are tuff!

    Have Toro prolines and Honda commercials....have had more problems with hondas, but engines are reliable...Toros are heavy but seem to last me longer without repairs.

    Don't go with a Snapper. The cut is terrible, and the squeaky disk drive can get a little annoying. I've had one since May and I wish I would have went with a Deere, Honda, or Toro.
