    Hey guys,
    I am considering getting a used large deck Honda commercial mower. My understanding is that Honda no longer makes them. Can anyone give me a little history on them. Like why they were not successful with commercial cutters? Are parts available? Are parts much more expensive than similar parts for exmark/toro/scag? Am I nuts to consider getting one?
    Thanks.

    Are you nuts to consider one? YEP! I bought one new, got rid of it within 3 months. Guy that bought it had all types of problems. To this day, it sees lots of sitting time and very little work.

    Why they didn't make it? Simple, they thought that by the name it would do great. They didn't spend r&d to really compete. They decided to not waste time and money on the endeavor and concentrate on what they are good at.

    So, DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THAT MACHINE!
