    I have a LB 4.5HP Gold series mower that is our trim mower and it is also used for two backyards with small gates (1000 sq ft of mowing).
    Great mower, very tough and I have run it on Amsoil Synthetic mix at a ratio of 100:1. Never had a fuel related problem. The mower has basically no maintenance and starts everytime we need it. I'd buy another in a minute.

    Just keep the air filter clean and she'll be there for ya.

    Had mine 3 years and besides my neglect it has been a good mower. 2 stroke seems to have more guts than the old 6.0 hp briggs I had........never stalled it yet.

    I've had a Gold Series 10655 for 2 months. Love it so far. Lightweight and the Easy Stride self propel is great.

    every single company uses those here. What model are yopu looking at? Go with the commercial, lasts for years and years.

    The commercial mowers have 6.5 hp and have a tough deck, with protective bars in fron over the spark plug, etc. Also, the commercial has a bigger tank!! this is what i use. I have 2 right now over 6 years old. they are our primary mowers and get used every day all day, except for a few accounts with the 48" bobcat. they are very easy to fix if you do have to replace something. My friend in this business has a couple of the non-commercial mowers. He's had to replace them several times over while i've been using my originals... but to each his own. Depends on how much you were going to spend, and how much use they will get. but they are a kick ass mower.
