Hows it going? My John Deere 14sb is slowly dying.. lol its been with me from the very beginning. I am looking into getting a Honda HRX217HXA. I will generally be putting about 10-12 a week on this mower. It will be used for 90% Bagging. (im sure i can put it on 2 notches so it still puts down some grass) Anyways.. Do you think this mower will hold up? If im going to be spending 700.00 on a 21'' it better last me more than 2 seasons. I will change the oil and spark plug 3 times per season. The blade clutch is a must. (which it comes with) With a 6.5 HP engine, i think it should do just fine. The hydrostatic trans should be nice too. I think they have this model at the Home Depot. I can allways buy it there and be assured that if it breaks within 2 years that i would get my money back. So what do you think?
