I bought a Honda HRC216HXA Commercial. Probablly overkill for what I
use it for. I am a home owner with perhaps 1/2 acres of lawn (may be a
bit more) on up and down, slopey terrain. It takes me about two hours
and 3 refils of the Honda to cut everythiing. I find that the mower is
easy to start, and the Hydrostatic control is nice in that you can
control the speed nicely, i.e. you "don't get scared" when the thing
does not run away from you. So far (two months) everthing as been super
reliable. I have used some older mowers in the past, all in England,
Hayter, ATCO, Flymo, Xenoh (RedMax overhere in the USA I think), That
was a while back (20 Years ago). I must admit this is one of the best
mowers I have used. My only surprise was the noise it makes. Maybe I am
getting old. I always wear eye and ear protection when using it.
Warmest regards, Mike.
