    I used to maintain a fleet of about 26 of them.. They are a reliable, solid machine that cuts pretty and bags well.

    However, the parts on them can be outta sight :help: payup . And the biggy for me is that they don't really mulch too good..

    Those reasons plus the weight of them, are the reasons I'm a Toro Proline/ Exmark Metro 21 guy..

    The new Honda mulches very well and is a few lbs. lighter. The parts are not any worse priced than the Toro, some even cheaper! If you are paying alot for parts on the Honda then your dealer is marking it up ALOT!

    If you are gong to bag you can't go wrong with the Honda. I haven't needed many parts and we are heavy commericial.
    I also like the Snapper commericial, it is lighter and a better trim mower.

    Love my honda. Quiet, uses little fuel, power, good cut, bags excelent, mulches ok, change oil put fuel in and go. I love it but it is heavy. Never had a problem other than changing oil and puting fuel in it.
