    well i've never owned a push mower.

    i have always refused to do lawns that have fences in the back.

    or i've used my dad's 20 year old toro.

    i need a beater basically.

    i see toro personal pace mowers for around $200 on craigslist.

    i think i only want a recycler. i dont need to be bagging anything!

    even new sod. i'm pretty sure the recycler will work good right?

    nothing too heavy either. i normally lift it on the front of the zero turn and drive it to where i need it.

    Anyone? The one I saw was a personal pace. 6.0 hp. About 6 years old. He wanted $215. Looked pretty nice.

    I have one of those. It runs great, and cuts fine. The problem is that it doesn't hold up to the constant abuse of loading and unloading onto the trailer. The deck is bent, the handle fell apart, some pieces have fallen off. And I was only using it on 2 lawns per week.
