I agree! I have two 4-stroke Suzuki's on Vacu-Power decks and they are excellent performers. One always starts first pull, and the other has some sort of carb issue that I can't figure out, but it always starts. They idle beautifully. The Suzuki is commercial grade with an oil pump and heavy-duty construction. I will outlast the rest of the mower easily!A 4 stroke Suzuki 21 inch Toro 3spd is the best walk behind , I have ever owned. At least 20 yrs old and it still starts first try. It was a Craigslist freebie from a mile away. It needed a shoulder bolt for a height adjuster. I have sharpened the blade and changed the oil a few times. I dont know much about the engine except that it always runs
Just bought that same Honda yesterday. Surprisingly, the grass clippings go down toward the ground and not all over the operator. I had that same question/concern myself when shopping for a new mower.Well, I looked at the Huskee at TS and was not impressed.
Went to Home Depot and looked at the Honda HRR216K9VKA. Much better. However I question the rear discharge when using it in discharge mode. I think I'll get covered in grass. I would like to look at the Toro Personal Pace for $359. but they didnt have one in stock.
Went to lowes and looked at Husqvarna HU775H for $369 but dont see it on the Husqvarna website. Is this an old model?
I will be checking out the mower shops tomorrow.
