    Hey guys im in the market for a good small mower for small jobs and for my wife to use at home { she likes to mow } but i dont want any junk because i may use it myself on some jobs.
    I had a toro 22'' 6.5 hp and it was ok but it died today and i dont want another toro and im not looking to buy a 36 or 32 either so what else is out their thats good and under 28''?

    I haven't used one yet, but the Husqvarna Commercial 21" looks like a dang nice unit. Know of quite a few of them being used around here. I'll probably get one next summer if I decide to buy a new 21".

    How old was your Toro? I have used Toro push mowers commercially for years. It takes a lot to kill a mower engine. Did you maintain the mower?Check oil and all the other things that go alone with routine maintenance?
    If you are not big on maintenance I would buy the cheapest mower out there. No sense in wasting money nor a good machine..

    I like the Honda HRX217 great mower can change from bagging to mulching in a second. Either way, I agree with Redmaxman Honda makes great engines
