Years ago I helped my aunt cut her grass with her Honda self propelled. It almost killed me, high speed was almost a slow jog and slow was real slow, the mower was great I was just out of shape to go on high for to long. I don't think you could kill that mower.

 

I have to much grass to cut so I use a kubota with a 72" finishing mower, with a comfortable seat and drink holder and a roof to keep cool, ya know how old people do it. :blush2:

Guess we are "lazy" in Florida (or maybe it's too hot). Don't know anyone who cuts their own grass :D

famous for their gardening skills at least as far as Hawaii.  5'7" is pretty tall for one though.

My vote is lazy.  It's no hotter there than it is here.

Bought the same mower after getting rid of the Ryobi first generation cordless mower broke down. Thing was a beast to move around with it's lead acid battery.

Went to this Honda and it was night & day difference. Louder but more power and much lighter to maneuver. On a turn it won't tear up the grass. I also like the self propel feature.

I use ethanol free gas for all my small engine tools and toys.

I wish I had a station close. 17 miles each way west or north. Being in the petrochemical business for 24 years I despise the business model and performance of ethanol.

 

Honda, Stihl and Kubota on my farm.

My ancient riding mower finally died and I just bought the top of the line Honda mower. Turn the key and voom! It even charges the battery as it runs. I intend that it will always run on non ethanol gas.

Cut some today, grease it before cutting every time. This past winter I rebuilt the working parts of the finishing mower,  3 new blades, 3 complete sets of bearing for the spindles. Sounds quieter now, first time I changed the bearings in 10 years, but I do grease them before every use, probably why they lasted so long. 

I decided to do this to extend the life because I did look up a new one and had sticker shock, I fix what I can being cheap, no reason to waste money. :emotion-21:

Oh OK, thank you, after a certain point I stopped looking. I'm surprised whenever I see that number, I think they added some, it don't feel like it's been 15 years either ? I'm a slow learner. :blush:

 

Time goes by fast, there's an old guy in the mirror now.
