    I have (2) Honda commercial units about the same age, and they both say commercial on the deck. Maybe this is a unit from the old Masters series. Regardless, I would buy it. Very good unit....

    Yup...commercial say commercial on them. I've seen these listed on craigslist as "commercial" or sometimes they say "commercial engine" but they are not of their commercial line. If it was a commercial unit...heck i'd pay for shipping to Cali at that price. ;-)

    o.k. Sad to hear that it's not commercial, so it's still a good deal though? It looks like a lot higher quality than a lot of the mowers these days. :)

    Did the non commercial mowers have the hydrostatic transmission back then too?

    How about the cut, mulching, and bagging quality of these mowers, do they compare to say the hrx, hrx, or toro super recycler/bagger?

    The cut very well and are like vacuums. And the bag gets full, not like others that will only half fill before they start clogging blade. Also, you can download the owners manual from that honda website above, just verify serial number/make/model.

    I guy I know might sell one of these hydro Hondas to me for $150, maybe even less... I have been buying my Toro 3-speed BBCs for $50 to $125 for years now, they just don't quit.

    Anyone else have experience with these mowers, or know what a fair price would be?
