    Hey everyone I currently cut 3-4 lawns right now and am looking for a new mower. I am looking for a mower in the price range of $500-600 dollars and trying to keep within that budget. These are the mowers I am looking into:

    Honda Harmony II with the Caster wheels, zero turn. HRZ216TDA
    Honda HRX with the 3 speed self-propelled model. HRX217TDA

    I have already used a Harmony II that one with the caster wheels and i really like the mobility of it but will it hold up for 3-4 lawns per week. Also how does the Honda HRX, with turning and its engine power. Also, how is that clip director and the Xenoy deck? I will also take any ideas that you may have.

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    GET THE HRX!!! The clipdirector is the greatest thing since sliced bread! I love mine. The twin blades produce clippings so fine, if the grass is a little wet you won't even see clippings stuck to your shoes. Great mower!

    bbc definately. so nice to let go of the mower and not have to start it a gain.

    I would say spend the extra money and get the masters. The hrx and harmony II are what I consider not true hondas because the masters and commercial have gxv series over the gcv which are throw away engines.

    That's real nice. Well explain why a 1982 honda commercial(same as masters) can be running still to today? It's because the engine is a gxv which are REAL honda engines. The gcv is not good for commercial use because they have a cheap alluminum bore and by many are throw away engines.

    pretty much everything "now a day" is built cheaper then "Back in the day". the gcv has done good for me. a good friend with an LCO owns 6 HRX mowers bought them 3 years ago and puts about 20-25 hours a week on them and they are still running strong. I guess you dont use your "commerical" honda mower very much My last honda mower was a honda commerical I bought it 4 years ago and it lasted 4 years and started having probs so I traded it in. I find that the HRX has a better cut quality over the NEW commerical honda. plus the mulch/bag green lever on the HRX kicksass. plus I never will again spend 1k on a push mower.

    I get your point. The hrx might cut better but the masters or commercial will have better durability. But is the hrx deck any good being so light weight?
