    Hey everyone,
    I wanted to say i enjoy this site very much, it has helped me out quite a bit. Anyway, I know this has been discussed many times, but i can't find the posts, so i will ask again.
    Which manufacturer of commercial 21" mowers, in your oppinion have a quality product? I am in the market for another trim mower, and i am having a tough time deciding which company deserves my hard earned cash.
    Thanks for any replies,
    Best Regards,
    Chris

    well, how much use is this thing going to see? heavy? or two or three property's a week that can't squeeze any other mowers into?

    for heavy use, I would buy either a toro proline, or a honda hrc 216.

    for lighter duty, I would get a toro super recycler, or a honda hrx series mower.

    We run the 21" toro prolines! They are great mowers and hold up very well.

    I like the Honda commercial model for its durability. Evan employees can't hurt them.

    The dealer said the the toros commercial 21" would be going up to around 1200 next season, and they didnt have any left in stock from this one...

    JD quit making the JX 85, several years ago. The warranty claims on those machines was greater than their profit on them.
