I want to buy a new mower, that fits my specs.
1. High Rear Wheels
2. Gas Filter
3. Choke Controls
5. Adjustable Handle (for operator height)
6. On/Off kill switch
7. Safety handle by-pass
8. Power Propelled
9. Rotary blade
Any suggestions where I might go to buy this in USA.
The closest I can come is the DR Field.
I have an old one now,
but need a smaller machine for the wife.
NOTE! High wheels ONLY good for large flat golf course like areas!, on
hills etc big wheels are a pain!
Ideally the mower you choose has a blade clutch, let go of handle,
mower drops to idle blade stops.
this saves restarting mower every time you let go to do something like
I bought a self propelled Toro and I think it is great. It has a key
start, rear bagging, adjustable wheeles. The Personal Pace feature
makes it go faster when you give a stronger touch to the handle. You
can really run with it. It cost around 399.

You want to bypass the safety handle? You mean the device that turns
the engine off when you let go of the handle?? No one is going to
bypass that. The only reason mowers have safety handles is that they
are required by law. They're not going to break the law for you.
You'll have to fend for yourself, and remember to unfend if you ever
lend the mower to anyone.
Well, so far I haven't found the mower for the wife.
I did see a possibility at Sears, Model 37609.
The wife likes to mow, to burn off steam.
She does about 1/2 acre of flat area, every 2 weeks.
She doesn't use the bag, and sets it at close to high cut.

firstname.lastname@example.org quickly quoth:
I have 1/3 acre and a 4-year old Murray 22-incher with B&S 6.5hp
engine. It's a high-wheel that cost $188 at Wally World. Works just
fine, starts first pull every time (after I figured out that after
wintering in Oregon, the primer took 20 hits, not 4). It's not
self-propelled so you wife would get a better workout. After all, it's
a flat area. ;)
When love and skill work together, expect a miracle.
