I see your looking for "durable" for under $400. I think of commercial when I hear durable. I don't believe you'll find anything commercial w/ 6 hp and self propelled. (not new anyway) This may be your opportunity to upgrade. There are lots of opinions here on different brands. Good luck.Originally posted by LouisianaZJ
Hey, the little 21" used in small spots crapped out on me today. I't probably fixable (cracked deck where the engine mounts, bent deck), but I'll probably just get a new one.
Preferably self propelled in the 6HP+ flavor.
