Ok all, i got a couple accounts already, just your typical residential suburb lots, i need a new mower because my 4hp push snapper is a pain in the arse. anyways went to lowes today and had my eye on 2 mowers. they had a really nice john deer, John Deere 8.75 Torque JS45 21" Cut Self-Propelled Gas Mower a return for 376$. but i read really bad reviews about the soft easily bendable shaft and constant replacing fuel filters and spark plugs. so after some more looking, my dad is a ANTI briggs and stratton engine user( he is a ex employee go figure lol) so we found a Husqvarna with a honda engine. Husqvarna 160cc 21" Self-Propelled Gas Push Mower, heres the link http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?action=productDetail&productId=309074-46716-961430042&lpage=none but its pricey at 374$ with some more looking we came across a nice troy built with a honda motor. its 312$ same specs as above Troy-Bilt 160cc 21" Cut Self-Propelled Gas Push Mower http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?action=productDetail&productId=303527-270-TB240&lpage=none both mowers are similar, both offer honda motors. whats your opinion on whats the best? we found a Husqvarna trimmer for 199 thats also very nice. the reviews for Husqvarnas are way more positive then any other brand. thanks all btw our company is just father and son ran.
