Very new to this site. I tried searching for this topic before I posted it but I didn't see a thread just for it alone. Anyway I do a lot of city residential and these old houses have some crazy small access ways to the back yards and some are huge yards to boot. I have a Troy Bilt 3n1 front wheel self propelled mower. It can do the job cutting wise fine, but I would like it to move faster. I am tall and it is easy for me to walk fast. My question is, what 21 inch self propelled mowers have good speeds to them? I have tried those Toro personal pace mowers and they are Not faster than these Lowes bought Troy Bilts. The rear wheel Troy is even slower. Looks like most mowers are built using the same drives and are about the same thing when it comes down to it. I don't see speeds listed for any of them. Only the Exmark Metro 26 says it goes 2-4.1 miles an hr. Is that really any faster than these regular mowers? I am doing these yards that nobody else wants to do and like a true obsessive compulsive I make them look great, which means sometimes double cutting to get the beautiful finnish. So line up your 21 inch self propelled mowers and lets race. You do you think wins? BTW this site is so cool. I will be reading for days on all these older but interesting posts.
