    Thinking of the above mower to mulch my .25-.33 acres of mowable grass. Have been swayed from the Snappers b/c of lack of faith in the Briggs powerplants, plus multiple dealers (and posters) have told me the Honda will out-mulch the Snapper easily. Plus, the above mower has the slightly beefier GCV190 engine in it.

    So, now I'm posting on the pro board. Am I making a good purchase?

    Thanks in advance !!!!

    My Dad just bought one for our yard and I really like it. The only thing that sucks is that I'm not allowed to use it on my lawns. :cry: :laugh: The cut is way better than my Toro or John Deere, and it mulches stuff the Toro can barely bag. It is definitely one of the best homeowner mowers, and shares alot of the features from the HRC which cost $400 more. I'm planning on buying one once I save up enough. A great mower if you ask me.

    I have 2 of them. I love them. they start very well, the leave a very nice cut, and bag very well. I have mulched with them before. It does not mulch hgh grass very well, you have to go a little slower. But it does alright mulching
