I've used many different mowers in my life mostly because they just didn't last very long and/or had problems. A few years ago my nephew and I decided to open our own lawn business to make a little extra money. I went to my local department store to pick out a couple of law mowers for us to use(not Honda mowers). Within the first week we ended up exchanging 3 lawn mowers and after much thought and frustration I decided to spend a little extra and get us Honda mowers. Oh my gosh what a difference!! I had not idea a Honda mower made so much difference. The ease of use was so superior to the other mowers I'd picked! I was so glad I decided to spend a little extra because it saved us time and money in doing so! The work was completed faster and the mowers never gave us any trouble. They even cut the grass much more evenly along with the mulching. The bag is so easy to put on and take off, the mower started the first time and it cleans up so nicely after each use. This is without a doubt one product I will always recommend spending the extra money on to get such good quality! Our customers even made comments about how nice their lawns looked! WOW! If that's not satisfaction I don't know what is! Thank you Honda for such an awesome product!
