I've noticed that the mower Home Depot sells that are also sold at one of my Dealers (Toro Personal Pace) were the same price same with snow blowers.

They may be the same price...but dont you want dealer support??? The people at Lowes and Home Depot cant fix these things for you. Mix a can of paint--yes...fix a transmission on a Honda--no. If you're shelling out 800 bucks...spend it with a dealer.

DONT DO IT...........

Honda's are over rated....... it's a push mower for Christ sakes....

you can get 2 el cheapos, like craftsman for that price and they will last just as long, cut just as well, the only diffrance is..... YOU CAN GET PARTS ANYWHERE FOR THE CRAFTSMAN

YEs they do..... however for 8 to 9 hundred dollars, for a push mower is way too much.....

I have had honda mowers and they last just as long as the el cheapos with all the bells and whistles....

when it comes to 21" mowers....most of us dont use them much... "some do" But mast of us dont.... what are we talking 5 ,6,7 years.....
the cheap mowers last this long tooo,,,,,

I have a craftsman, G-sale item, self prop. bagger, mulcher. got it for 35.00
it's on it's 6 th year....

Granted it's almost dead.... I expect it to go any day, it's as fast as honda. it's as realiable, it will cut just as good,

The only diffrance is, I took the 750.00 dollars and put it on an Exmark 52"

it's down to personal prefance.... some prople want to drive a Rolls. some dont mind driving a chevy.....
