In the market for one. Also, how do the old style engineless mowers cut?

Toro self-propelled with Honda engine.

I cut my grass today for the first time since late September/ early October. My three year old Toro cranked the first pull. All I did was pour new gas in the tank.

I have a year old Toro super recycler, and haven't been too impressed with it. Has a 6.5hp motor on it that has bogged down on my grass since day one.

Gonna swap it out for a commercial Honda this year

The one my yard man uses works great. I'll have to ask his boss.

Would help to know how much yard you got to cut...a small yard would probably be ok using the cheapest mower....as the task grows so does the value of the better equipment.

It's not massive but it's also not a tiny cookie cutter house backyard.

The yard has a slight incline in the backyard and steep incline in the front yard.

My neighbor and I bought a new Toro Personal Pace mower three years ago and the transmission went out on both of them already. It almost cost as much to fix them as it did to buy a new one. I also had trouble getting through tall grass.

As long as you sharpen the blades after you take it out of the box, they are awesome.

I bought a Craftsman last spring when it was on clearance to make way for the 2012 ones. Have been pleased with it so far. It's not self propelled, but it has the 6.75 Briggs & Stratton engine I believe. I used it yesterday for the first time since October, started on the first pull. A little disclaimer though, I drained all the gas out of it after I used it last in the fall.

This. Bought my Honda 5 years ago and it is a horse. Cost a little more but worth every cent.
