    What do you guys think about the Honda HRX (either model) for commercial use?

    I think I am going to buy one immediatly when my Husky goes down. I searched and found only two threads about them.

    The proline isn't out of the question, but I would prefer a Honda.




    Thanks,

    Go with the commercial model. You won't regret it. I have over five hundred hours on mine and it still runs like new. I will need to replace the bag here soon but what can you say about a piece of cloth. starts on first pull every time. every time. runs quiet. has an extra large fuel tank bonus and a larger bag, extra bonus. time is money and when you are dumping grass and filling up with gas all the time you aren't making any money.

    That's why I was leaning toward the HRX, so I could mulch 75% and bag 25%.. am I wrong here?

    My husky has a higher guage steel (13 guage) than the commercial Honda's, but let's see how Husky's RWD holds up.

    I'm also looking for any input from someone who uses it comercially. This would be my primary 21" until I can get a nice w/b.

    But if my Husky holds up for 2 more years I won't need to worry about them, but I wanted some input on them.




    Thanks,
