    ok so up until now I haven't needed a push mower for any accounts, I just recently landed one that will require a push mower for the backyard its gated and its a wide gate, but a small zero turn would discharge grass everywhere and it would be a mess so a 21" push mower with bagger is my best option, its going to be a weekly account starting in spring of 2014 I want a push mower that is going to hold up for a long time, and is no more then 500 dollars new. I was thinking toro.

    maybe that model but i'll buy it locally. I haven't really done any push mowing.

    any thoughts?

    Our honda push mowers have never let us down other than when we abuse them too much. They leave a great cut bag well and are just an all around good push mower

    Consumer Reports has Honda and Toro mowers as their highest rated mowers.

    i'll look into the honda push mowers tomorrow when i'm out running errands. any models specifically you like, do you run 21" deck or do you guys use a 30" push mower or something in between.

    30 toro. You will never touch a 21 again. I have a brand new. Exmark commercial 21 x with the honda GXV motor that never got used this year. The 30 is an awesome cut and you finish it 45% faster.

    You can find cheap 21s used all over because of the 30
