I went to test out a 21" Honda HRC hydro today, mostly because I was interested in the increased cutting height over the prolines. It ran quiet, was fairly quick and smooth, but I just couldn't get past their design for the bbc and drive. To let off the drive and make turns (at a reasonable pace) you need a hand like Andre the Giant. We service alot of small lawns, particularly in the front that require a great deal of turning and backing up. I'm curious as to anyone on here who uses these as their main mowers, how do the crews like them? Or are they suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome? Thanks!
