Briggs and straton or kohler or honda? Other than the expensive as fukc toro, what is the motor to go with? I don't see any difference in the rest of the mowers.

I have a Toro personal pace push. I've had it for 5 years now?? and no problems. We used to run them at work but they are not a professional duty mower and I had to rebuild the drive gears every year. But no problems with mine. The personal pace is nice. The faster you go, the faster the mower goes. And I like rear drive over front drive.

I bought one of those last summer. Husqvarna, ball bearing wheels, tall back wheels, mulch/bag/discharge all included, $279 w/Honda, less with chinese Kohler. Best value I could find for a Honda powered push.

I picked out a craftsman push mower on trash day. I put gas in it and it started on the first 1-3 pulls.
