    I am looking to buy a commercial 21" mower.

    I will be mulching and bagging plus a bit of side discharging on the overgrown lawns.

    My choices are:

    -Toro commercial 21"
    -Toro commercial 21" PROLINE
    - Honda commercial 21"
    - Snapper commercial 21"

    I've heard that the Honda's are exeptional mowers with a great quality of cut.
    Also I know that the commercial Toro PROLINE have a Kawasaki FJ180V which is pretty nice but the PROLINE's do cost a bit more than the regular Toro commercial 21" (I think because of the engine).

    Thanks for your help! :)

    That's what I am leaning towards,
    just wanted to see other people's thoughts.

    I don't mulch at all. Otherwise I would say Exmark X series. Since you do mulch go with Honda.

    I would love to go with eXmark but the closest dealer does not stock the 21 inchers.

    I've got my heart set on a new Toro Proline 21", I believe 22198 is the model. Hopefully in a couple months there will be one riding around on my trailer.

    Not to get off topic, but I was looking through my gravely catalog and they make a odd push mower 21" The motor sits up real high, and has a long shaft, that run belt drive for deck. I had never seen anything quite like it? Maybe a new design?
