Well I really needed new 21 inch mowers they ones I had were old 2 cycle lawnboy's and they have lasted me almost 3 years now. Now that the season is ending. Yesterday I just happened to pass this local dealer that was on my route for mowing and I just went in to see what they had for sale, they are a Honda and Gravely dealer. And they sell a few other items, but they just apparently got a shipment in of mowers from another dealership that went out of business and they had two brand new Honda HRC216HXA mowers there. They retail here for $1,250.00 a piece. One was listed for $796.00 and the other was listed at $996.00. I have never used or bought a Honda mower before but I have read alot of information on here about them and just looking at this machine it looks like it will last a long time. Shaft driven engine, rear wheel drive, blade clutch, double blades, steel deck, ball bearing wheels. I didnt want to spend that kind of money but I couldnt pass this up. With tax I got both brand new mowers and 1 year warentee for $1,917.44 I think that is a really great deal.
