Have to breakdown and replace my old Honda 21". I was leaning towards the Toro Proline because allot of you say it mulches better than any other 21". My previous Hondas were lousy at mulching ..both of them.. but the new marketing hype from Honda talks about them improving the mulching capability. I think the new modek number is like hxa217?? The HOnda also allows the cutting height to be raised to 4 inches..the Toro can only go to 3.5 inches. ANy of you out there have first hand experience with the newer Honda commercial mowers ..if so, hows it doing with mulching the wet spring growth?? thanks much.
