    What's the best kind of small walk behind mower to buy? I'm talking just a 21" or so for those tight places you need to trim. I had a 21" Yard man...best mower I've ever owned and I put it through hell. Not a big fan of the Briggs and Stratton although this one did me well. What's your opinion? I have a gravely 36", so I won't be using the 21" much.

    The Honda Commercial mower is the best I've found. (the hrc 216..I think) It's spendy but worth it.

    if your not going to be using it to much, I would get a toro super recycler. if it's going to be used a lot. I would get the new honda hrc 217. or a hrc 216.

    Yeah, the Hondas are what I've been leaning towards. They are a little costly, but I've heard nothing but good things about them. I wanted something with a Kawasaki engine on it, but I believe they're more on the bigger mowers. Thanks for the help.
