I hope this is not considered a thread hijack. Maybe I'm just riding on Whispers coat tails with a similar question. When I use a trim mower, it is exactly that, for some trim work. Maybe ten or fifteen minutes and it's back in the truck. I prefer a light weight PUSH mower rather than self propelled. I have the cash and have narrowed to a cheapy Sears at $170 or a Honda HRS216PDA for $349? Both of them weigh between 61 and 63 pounds. I will be the only one running it and I take care of my stuff. These are both residential rated mowers. Will the Honda be any better? Worth basically twice as much? Thanks for your advice and comments, and thanks to Whispers for letting me ride his thread.
