I only use this mower on 3 of our accounts. This is a pitiful cutting machine. It leaves more standing grass than it cuts. I know it's not commercial but I would expect it to have a half decent cut. The sad part is that I read a post that I made a year ago about buying a honda harmony and taking it back after 1 day because of the poor cut quality. I bought a residential Lawnboy instead and was very happy with the cut until the engine seized. I was in a bind and went to Home Depot and bought a returned Honda for 1/2 price after my lawnboy gave out. Now I am searching for another trim mower and ran accross my old post about the Honda. It's sad when you can't even remember buying a mower. The Honda and the Lawnboy cost me about $700 together. I got a good YEAR out of them even with limited use. Maybe I'll put the Honda engine on the Lawnboy deck!! Lesson learned ! I'll buy commercial next time. Yes the blades are sharp and the deck is clean and even.
