I am a part - timer, pay my taxes and have insurance. Im looking for a walkbehind that has a great cut while mulching most often St. Augustine. My 21" honda cuts very nice, but only 21". My Home Depot 42" John Deere scalps too easy with uneven ground and in turns. Yes, I do cut it high enough. What mower would give me the best looking cut, I really try to leave a great looking lawn.
