    if you're not going to use it offten, look at some cheap homeowner models. i only need a 21" mower for a small hill by a pool that is much too steep for my riders, and for a small parking strip that is too narrow for my riders. i just bought a craftsman push mower, $100, and it will last. now if you need a 21" for big stuff then i might sudgest a toro commercial mower or a lawn boy.

    I use a Toro and i love it. It mulches great and leaves a nice cut. Mike (MCW) is right, Hondas are good too.

    We have two Toro Proline 21's, one has a Suzuki two-cycle and the other has a Kawasaki. The Kawasaki is on its eight season on the original engine and is still used daily. The Toro's cut great and are made to last. The Honda's look nice but I don't have any experience with them.

    I use a 2003 "original" Lawn-Boy. I have never had any problems with it. :clapping:
