    Bought one three weeks ago and I have to agree the mower is awesome. Mowed a couple of times in heavy wet grass and couldn't believe how well it did.

    So my neighbor has one of these machines and I have a couple questions....
    (currently running 22" Toro recycler)

    1. The cruise control seems to be kinda slow? When the grass is short and your only cutting very little off I wish I would move faster. Do you find this an issue?
    2. Rear wheel drive? seems to me kinda awkward when striping back and forth? Something maybe I will get use to?? And watching the video on Honda website maybe it seem like it causes the front end to pick up alot? Maybe be issue on hilly terrain??
    3. Twin Blades?? That just seems like a pain?

    I love the power it has and like the idea of the controllable mulch/bag option but so far these other things have kinda steered me away, I would like to hear your input.
