    Honda all the way. Just like the hydro walk behind beats a belt drive with gears the same rules apply to push mowers. No gears to fail and easy speed adjustment.

    When you guys are talking Honda Commercial are you talking the PDA or the HXA? I just bought a Snapper Hi Vac and I am looking to buy one more 21 to go head to head to see what we will be using in the future.

    Honda Commercial Mowers are "HRC" mowers

    I know they have the HRC216PDA and HRC216HXA. I want to know which one you guys are using.

    Not sure but it would appear from the website that is who they are marketing to....at least to.some.degree....? Honestly thought of hiring Hispanics as well?

    Just the name threw me off guard, most definitely Hispanic, I'm not particular about who does the work, as long as they show up for work on time, work safe, can use equipment knowledgeably, I don't care what their race is, but they do need to speak a decent enough amount of English to communicate when needed with customers, etc...

    When you say you have just bought it, I am assuming that you haven't used it yet, is this right - since you are in Wisconsin right?
    Maybe you grass is much different up there my experience is that the weakest part of the snapper/ferris 21 hi vac is the deck, it is 14 guage - with limit experience - 55 years of cutting grass, but only 5 for $$$$ a 14 guage deck unless it is really reinforced is a homeowner deck. I say this because if you get into heavy wet grass, and you are bagging it is very possible to jam the blade into the deck, there is much to much flexibility in the deck.

    Better than a tank, super cut... cuts through anything.... the COMMERCIAL one anyway. I wouldn't waste my time, nor risk people's health with homeowner equipment, not to mention upping the risk factor to affect my insurance.

    Toro, Toro, and Toro. Of course, i'm sure Honda is good too. 4 years, little maintenance, absolutely NEVER failed. Bought new, around $1300.

    I can put this mower in an idiot's hands and I know the mower will survive at least.
