    Which 21" or 22" walk behind mower has the best cut? Just quality of cut, im needing a little something to mow a couple of clients yards that requested to have push mowers do the mowing. Lets try to keep the price under $550 just for the sole purpose that the mower wont be used all the time.

    The 21" Metro will run you about $1150 with BBC, the Toro is at $1350 and the Snapper Commercial is $899.

    this question is for the toro people.. ive been looking at the toro recycler and super recycler (not the commercial grades) which one of those is the best for the money

    If I'm not mistaken isn't the superrecycler designation for the aluminum cast decks and recycler for the steel stamped decks? Obviously the former would be better.

    I have used super recyclers for 16 years and like them. Not a good discharge mower but mulches and bags well enough. At about 40% the cost of the real commercial models they're ok for occasional use.
