    How does the 21 exmark compare to the 21 hoda hrc216? Any one try both or have a good experience with one of them?

    We run a couple of the Honda 216 and love them. I demoed the exmark 26 earlier this year and although i loved the kaw engine on them, the belt drive wasn't very impressive compared to the Hydro on the Hondas. The only problem i've had is one or two cable adjustments that the dealer took care of. We did have one of em fall out the back of the truck while we were unloading them, hasn't effected anything, though i wouldn't reccomend it. lol Can't go wrong with the duble blades either.

    You will have to bag in the tall or spring growth grass to prevent the mower from shutting down or clogging up, but that should be expected with a 21'?
    For the price of these mowers you think they would do flips in your front yard. I also found that the mulching works effectively only when you take off 1-1.5 inches of grass.

    However, In the big commerical mower world nothing comes close to Exmark.
