    Hey guys,
    I am planning on buy new equipment and would like to hear your opinions on a few items. I'm sixteen and I've bought two $400.00 lawn mowers in the past two years and have been unsatisfied. I'm mowing 21 yards and have decided its time to buy a good commercial 21" mower and better trimmers. I need something that will do a great job mulching. Which engines are better also, Kawasaki or Honda? Thanks for the help.

    21" Commercial Mowers
    John Deere JX75 - $860.00
    Honda Commercial (The best model) - $1129.99
    Toro Proline - $?

    Honda 4 Cycle 31cc Trimmer - $380.00
    Honda 4 Cycle 31cc Edger - $415.00

    you could buy a nice used commercial 32 or 36 inch for not much more than that. or i would also look into the exmark 26".

    good luck

    I got a toro proline 21 inch for around 1100 bucks and am very satisfied with it. I strongly suggest you look into this model.
