Hey, I'm ending my first year cutting lawn and I'm thinking of buying a new mower. I mow 13 lawns a week and plan to add about 20 more next year. First off: What is the real difference between a HRX and HRC mower, I mean yeah the HRC is the commerical version, but I've used both and they seem similar to me. (ones I'm looking at HRX217HXA, HRC216HXA) There's about $400 difference between the two at the Honda dealer. Second: What is the verdict on Snappers? My neighbor and the guy who refers lawns to me both love them, but I've read on here that they're not the best for mulching and thats what I prefer to do. On Snapper engines, is the Kawi or the Honda better? Why does the most expensive pro model not have their wonderful disc drive? Third: What is the best mulching mower? I used to think Toro's were the best, but my JA62 with High Lift Blades and the mulch plug on it will mulch much better. I like the Honda Microcut system because by its nature it seems to be a great mulching system. Fourth: Does anyone use JX75's? Thats the mower at the top of my list since my JA62 works great, only complaint is that it only goes 3MPH which is why I'd get the 75 as its top speed is 4MPH. Fifth: Are Kawi engines good? My JA62 runs a BS Intek @ 6.75HP, but the JX75's Kawi only pulls 6? Is full pressure lube that big of a deal, the Honda engines don't seem to have it? Sixth: Deck material: Aluminum or Steel? I know aluminum won't rust, but my Toro's deck is steel and its older than the JA62 with no rust. From what I can tell, when you mow commerical, you kill other parts of the mower long before the deck can rust, and the HRC mowers have steel decks. So amidst all my questions, the mowers I'm looking at are: Honda: HRX217HXA, HRC216HXA Snapper: Any of the 21'' Pro series http://snapperpro.com/commercial_trim_mowers.php Deere: JX75 Thanks for any help, it is greatly appreciated!
