Listen Tree, You have to spend money to get a good mower. Look at it like this, how much money have you spent on crap-ola mowers so far? I bet if you could have all that money back, you could have purchased a decent mower right? If I were going to purchase a 21" mower I would buy an Exmark. Strong engines, aluminum deck, high blade tip speed.

Why do you want a 21" anyway? If you are mowing commercially, the smallest mower you are likely to need is a 36". Lots more productive, plus it can pull a velkie.

Cameron, how do you like the Honda mowers, I,m thinking about buying some but I would like to hear some feedback on how they run..... I've been using the J.D. mowers that have that nice Deere price, but never seem to run like a deer?

Sal, I would def. recommend Honda mowers. Like I said above, they are a little pricey but IMO are worth the money. I have never had any problems with them at all. Are you talking about push mowers (21in) or walk behind mowers? I have 2 of each and love both but from what I hear Honda is not making the larger units anymore, just the push mowers. I think they have a great cut and are very sturdy machines.

I love honda pushmowers they seemed to have it all figured out. A freind of mine I used to work for has had the same mower for six years. I think to many people don't do maintenance on their push mowers remember their airfilters and oil needs to be changed just as our bigger mowers do.

try to find yourself a toro proline with the 2 stroke suzuki and you will not have to change the oil like Danimal mentioned.
