Best 20 inch mower for commercial use?

Looking for suggestions for a 20 to 22 inch push mower that can stand up to daily use in a lawn business, that is under $1000.
Do they make commercial mowers under $1000?

honda has o think it’s called the hrc 217
Has a plastic deck and a knob on it that changes from bag to mulch
It’s supposedly top of the line residential but I know several companies that normally run the Honda commercial 21, that have since bought these and say they are great.
Msrp is under 1000
They have the same engine and drive as the Honda commercial only the deck is different, might be worth a try in your price range.
I’ve actually heard a Honda rep say the plastic deck is as durable or more so than the metal deck.
I dunno why they call it residential... there’s got to be a reason.
Maybe they don’t want to undersell their mainstay mower with a new design?

we run Honda commercial 21s
I’m not in love with them, but if there was something better , we’d have it.
We pay less than a grand, but we buy them no less than 5 at a time.

I somewhat just went through this. The hrx217 is the residential as stated and plastic. The hrc216 is the commercial and metal
About 1300 bucks for the hrc
About 750 for the hrx

Honda plastic decks are prone to breaking if hauled on a trailer with other mowers.
