    I have my schedual booked with weekly cuts. But I only have one 21" Honda Harmany mower....I need 2. Honda Canada is sold out. There are none left. I am thinking about driving to the states to get one or two. None of the Honda dealers down there are allowed to ship accross the line.

    Does the home depot sell them down there?

    I am in Saskatchewan. Can you call to see if you have some. If so the guys in town here are just too lazy to look around for me.

    lol, I have a john deere "green fleet". This is whet John Deere calls it. But unfortunatly, the honda mower is twice the mower that John Deere has. Where I am, we use 21" push mowers on almost every yard. It is important to have a good mower. 2 blades, adjustable mulch.....c'mon you can't beat that. Same with rototillers, John Deere doesn't make them so I went with honda also.

    But I do have more green in my trailer, than anything else.

    ive got three honda 21" mowers all bought from home depot. Go with the new 3 speed version for $400, the new smartdrive on the next model up seems to be a pita and your thumbs will get tired by the third lawn.

    Maybe in the case of the HRX, but all of Honda's other mowers use a steel deck that tends to plug up.
    I used to have a Honda Harmoney II and the JD JA 62 I have now does everything the Honda would do and the deck doesnt plug-up when I mow in thick grass.
    The Honda's engine is a work of art, but the deck is a letdown.
