I didn't see an equipment forum for mowers specifically, so I'm gonna go ahead and post it here. Someone is offering to buy me a mower (no cost to me)... The catch is that it HAS to be from Home Depot, as they are going to use their Home Depot Credit Card for the purchase. I have been looking at the Cub Cadet 19 in. Cost is an issue, but quality is kinda an issue as well... So, if you HAD to get a home cheapo mower, what would it be? I believe the choices are Toro, Cub Cadet, Honda, and some off brand not worth mention. The Honda turns out to be above the allotted price range (which is about $250-400, out the door), and the Toro and Cub Cadet are about the same on price... Keep in mind that these are going to be home mowers and 'back-up' commercial mowers, not to be used intensely or frequently. -Californian.
