I am currently using cheap push mower that i have borrowed to begin my business and must give back. I need to find a 21" or slightly bigger push mower w/ a bagger. Possibly a self propelled model. Should i by one used for now or get a middle of the road push mower from a dept store or what? I only want to spend a couple of hundred dollars at most if buying new or less if used maybe????? ANY SUGGESTIONS?

I was thinking about pawn shops, actually. Should i just try to find a bargain on a used push mower? cheap as i can get. Is the self propelled mowers worth the extra money.

I found an almost new one at the transfer station. It fired up on the first pull. Looks like it might have been used a month or 2. You can't beat FREE!!!!

I agree I have 2 of the home depot models one new and one a year old. I have the highest model, not sure how good the harmony models are but might want to look in to them.

look at garage sales for a lawn boy with a 2 stroke engine. Otherwise, Hondas or Toros are pretty good. If your going with a toro, get a super recycler. It should last you a while.

That's your decision, not ours. It depends on how good a shape you're in, how big an area you're mowing, and if you're willing to have more parts to (potentially) break. That, and how hard you're willing to work on a hot day.
