I am a Honda guy but our 6 year old unit will not mulch...so the new ones are good in tall grass? I only use Honda in bagging situations and on steep slopes where you need the two wheel drive...on flat land it is hard to turn thus not a very good trim mower.honda hrx series mowers.
2 blades.. excellent for mulching.. excellent in general.
the transmission is beautiful. PERFECTLY placed..
you have to check it out.
Home Depot - $650
they have models that are $550, $450 and then $750, $850.. roughly..
get the $650 or up..
That's the best of the best. But I don't do much bagging, so like Allen's Lawncare above, my Snapper HiVac mulches and discharges excellent, and bags once in awhile. The Toro Proline has a prettier cut, no doubt about that, and the blade clutch would be nice.The absolute best residential mower is the Toro Proline model 30197
