    Have narrowed down my choices for my next Mower: either the Honda HRR216 or the Toro 20333. Any specific thoughts on either of these? [I have ~1/4 acre, no real slope issues, general fescue lawn - I mostly bag or mulch.]

    Also, there is one interesting thing I noted from the specs of Toro's "Super" line of mowers: the Super-Baggers use the Honda GCV 160, while the Super-Recyclers use the B&S 190cc. Should I take that to mean the B&S has better torque and performance for mulching??

    Thanks for the help.

    Yes to the question of more torque for bagging and mulching.

    The Toro's transmission (if it is a self-propelled model) will give out in 2-3 years. That's just the way it is, and you really can't do anything to forestall it.
    If you are set on a Toro, get one when they are having the extended warranty sale.

    Otherwise, go with the Honda.
