    What do you think of this mower? I know it's from Home Cheapo and I know it has Briggs and I know its residential unit...but. I have 2-3 accounts that have a small fenced backyard small even for a 32" WB. So the only way is to either line trim or push a 21". Well line trim would be time consuming so the only alternative is to but a cheap push mower, which I would only use about 3 times a week for 15 minutes. Would this unit last me a year or two or should I look for something else? :usflag:

    Ps: no hills or obstacles, just flat terrain

    I would steer away from that one. It has the big wheels on the back which also drive the mower. They will be flopping around in no time. I bought the same exact mower and the back wheels were wobbling after the first use! I took it back and got the Toro PP recycler with the standard back wheels. Much better now. I use it once or twice a week. It sucks in wet grass though, clogs up the deck pretty bad and will need to be scraped after each wet cut.

    Try and find a good used Snapper push mower. Those things run forever. I bought a used self propelled one for $100 ten years ago. I still use it for dog pens and small slopes

    Is your Snapper 2 or 4 stroke?

    If you are only using it for 15min's twice a week any thing should last you a year or two JMO

    I've run my Super Recycler 3-4 hours a week, this is the second season so far, and no problems whatsoever. I expect to get at least 5 years out of it. 30 minutes a week...a Recycler ought to last you at least 5 years if not 10.

    Its a front drive in the link.

    I picked up a $130 push mower 3 years ago, still works fine.

    If you want a Snapper look at Sears, they carry them here.
