    I'm just getting into the business and am looking for a good quality 21&quot; push mower that can bag or mulch. I live in N. Georgia so all types of grass will be cut(fesue, bermuda, zoysia..).Not sure if I should go with 2 or 4 cycle. Don't think I need self propelled (am I making a mistake?). Any advice or suggestions on what type and model that I should buy?<br>

    just my opinion but for the price of some of the commercial 21&quot; mowers you could buy a used 48&quot; w/b <p>----------<br>CJC Landscape Management<br>Winter Haven, Florida

    We've got several lawnboy 2-cycle commercial push mowers. They're lightweight and durable. I don't think they bag all that well but they're great for side discharging. It would be a fine choice for someone just starting out. Get yourself a Shindaiwa T-260 trimmer and commercial Shindaiwa backpack blower (can't remember the series # off hand) to go with it. According to the other guys here Stihl and Redmax make comparable trimmers and blowers if Shindaiwa isn't in your area.<p>Good Luck.<p>----------<br>Dave in S.Ontario<br>

    Look at the discussion I started on 21'' self-propelled mowers.There are 28 hits on it to date.It should give you a good idea on which brands are the best.I also think you might think about getting a used walk-behind but be careful!Check out some discussions on used equipment to get an idea of what to look for.<p>Hope this helps!<p>from:Adam<br>AB Lawn Care
     
  5. Hello, I am partial to the Honda (4 cycle) with a BBC preferable the Hydro model (HRC216KHXA). This is a 21&quot; 6 hp OHV model with a hydrastatic transmission (no belts, drive shaft)<p>The BBC (blade-brake clutch) elimanates recranks and saves on pullropes!<p>Easy to crank, runs cooler(OHV) and burns less gas. Fuel Savings!!! Excellent engine.<br>Market price is around $1000.00. Honda has other commercial units in the $800.00 range.<p>If you are looking for a 2 cycle, I would suggest the Snapper CP214012R2. No one on the market has a mower that picks up clippings like a Snapper HI-VAC and the Robins 2 cycle is well known in the industry. Low maintenance 2 cycle engine with a HI-VAC deck. Market value approx. $800.00.<p>Snapper also has a commercial mower with a 6 HP 4 cycle OHV Robins engine. It is a great model in the 4 cycle market. Market value around $800.00.<p>Sweetie5 (Mrs. GrassMaster 2 U)<br>----------<br>GrassMaster - Home: www.lawnservicing.com<br>My Start Up Page www.lawnservicing.com/startup/<br>

    21INCH MOWERS ARE A GOOD IDEA BUT WALKBEHINDS ARE THE BEST CHOICE. I STARTED WITH THE PUSH MOWER AND WITHIN 6WEEKS I WAS BUYING A 48INCH WALKBEHIND WHICH DOES EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO DO A GRAET JOB I AM IN N GEORGIA ALSO
