Just moved into a house after living in an apartment all my life. The lawn is Bermuda and the total yard is about 4000 sq. ft. It is time to purchase a lawnmover but the types/models options are sooooooo confusing. I have never used a lawnmower before.
The neighbor suggested not buying a Rotary mower (because of the Bermuda grass) but instead going for a reel mower or a high end rotary mower (not as good though in comparison). I have also been told that Rotary mowers are the more popular ones used by homeowners. I don't want to get a riding mower because of lack of storage space.
I have narrowed it down to 2 new Year 2005 self-propelled models: the Honda HRX and the Toro SR4 20056 (Super Recycler). Both models will bag, mulch, and side discharge, have a 6.5HP engine and the usual features such as
Personally I don't mind paying a little more upfront for the machine but would like it to be sure I get the best one that offers lowest maintenance in the long run. Any advice on: 1) reel vs. rotary mowers, and 2) deciding between these two models listed above for Bermuda lawn will be appreciated.
Thanks in Advance
