    Hey guys, First post here but I've utilized the wealth of info on this forum a lot over the last few years. Thanks for all the expert advice here!

    We have about 10 acres to keep up. Our primary mower is a 61" Scag Cheetah. I love it...but it is a bit big for our fenced pool area.

    I'm looking for a inexpensive but quality used mower and have a couple of options. Both are in great shape:

    JD JX75 for $200

    Honda HRX217HYA $250

    I know the JX75's have a somewhat of a cult following. And the HRX217's get great reviews too. I'm having a tough time deciding...Can you guys help?

    Thanks!

    I prefer the JX75. I think it is one of the best 21" mowers ever built. It will run forever with just minor maintenance and service. Also very easy to work on, if you do your own repairs.
