This is the first Honda I have owned. The mower is built very well and leaves a great cut, But the clutch is a pain in the A$$. I have used Toro prolines in the past and I really love the drive bar, its at your finger tips. With the honda you have to use one hand to hold down the BBC and the other to operate the clutch. I don't understand why Honda couldn't design it where you could have both hands on the handle and operate the clutch with your fingers. After an half-hour of mowing I was worn out and frustrated as He!!. I'm considering returning it. For the guys that run them, do you get used to them. I am used to the Toro drive and the Honda feels awkward.
