What kind of reputation do these machines have? I am in need of a trim mower but don't have $1000 to spend on a commercial one. I saw a 2005 Troy-Bilt at Lowe's for about $229. Its got a 6.75 horse briggs & stratton, and it can mulch, side discharge, or rear bag. It's not self-propelled (which i do not like for trim mowers) and has oversized rear wheels. I am a part-timer. I don't anticipate to use the trim mower more than 5hrs a week. So, how do these machines rank amongst Craftsman, lower end Hondas, Lawn Boy, etc. Thanks.
