    What are the best push mowers for bagging? I ask because I plan to buy 2 instead of a zero turn.

    I have 2 Snappers and they're really good and the drive system is simple. Tony
    However, my buddy Richard showed me his new Toro personal pace today and it's pretty good too.

    I have 2 of the homeowner personal pace, but they clog too much when going through wet or thick grass. Ill check out the snappers.

    I Have an old 1988 toro proline commercial 2-stroke I believe 6.5hp. This mower still bags very well and still very sturdy. I paid $850 for the mower new and would buy another one if they were still made with the same motor. I have only changed spark plugs, blades and have rebuilt the carburetor once. I'm not sure what motor they have on them now.

    Honda's are great baggers. I have the HRX's and they are nice, but if you are doing alot of lawns get the HRC
