So my craftsman push mower is giving me lots of issues and I think it's time for a new mower. I am looking at either the Snapper Ninja mulching mower, Toro Super Mulcher or the Honda HRX217. I have a large sloping backyard backed up to a preserve.
I, too, cast my vote for Toro. I have a Toro Personal Pace that I bought at least 10 years ago, and it does great...I especially like the fact that it mows as fast, or slow, as I want to walk. All I've done to it, over the years, is change the oil regularly, and clean the deck, etc., after each use.
