    Better than the deere? It probably would in perfect conditions, but its got the 7iron so it should work fine for me! I haven't even gotten to use it much, mowed about 3 acres of pasture and it worked great tho.

    I used to mow with a 60'' John deere, it could cut through anything but it doesnt have near as good of a finish cut as a Turf Tracer.

    We'll have to see I guess. Once i actually start using it on nice grass I'll be able to tell if i like it. But i think I'll be fine with it

    If you can swing it, keep the Honda as a backup or a fallback machine if you end up not liking the Husqvarna. I've learned to hang onto stuff, as I've never gotten out of the sale what the machine is worth and backup stuff is good to have. If you keep it, be sure to drain all the gas out of, so you don't have carb issues if/when you need it.

    Everything depends on what grasses one is cutting, who is operating the machine, who's maintaining the machine, terrain, etc. He's got a great mower and a lot more machine than many.

    I've thought about keeping it, but there honestly isn't much i like about it. The cut isn't great, sucks on any kind of hill, just not a pleasure to use, I guess that it would be good to have a backup if the husqvarna is ever down tho. One of the yards i have to use a 21 on is Really hilly so i think that it should do the trick.

    Hills have been the deal breaker for my 30". I'm not the least bit happy about it, either.
