    Boys, same price...
    Honda commercial 21, or Exmark Metro 26.
    It would be my only push" mower on the trailer

    I had the metro 21 and I work on a lot of lake lots, its was entirely to heavy for those types of yards. On flat ground, its ok but i went back to my 22 toro pushmower and love it. just my $.02

    i run one of each for different reasons. both are good. but if you go with one i would go with the Honda. it will get in everywhere and the metro has problems fitting into places. you say they are the same price? last i looked the metro is $450.00 more. did you find them (metro) for around $1300.00?

    Tell us about the HRX falling apart. What specifically happened, and why. Was your model Cruise Control?

    I started using an HRX about a month ago, and only have about 100 service hours on it. Nothing has "fallen apart" as of now. What should I look for as "falling apart?" Thanks.

    the pin that holds the handles from folding broke.
    The auto choke system was garbege.
    I would do one pass on a lawn and then change the height and it would not start cause of that damn auto choke.
    I had the variable speed model. And the thumb throttle was bent and on its way out too.
    So i took it back and they gave me a hrc. Commercial for an extra 500. well worth it in my opinion. it has been excellent so far.
