I am looking for a new mower. From reading the forums, I prefer a Briggs & Stratton or Honda engine. My ceiling is $400 before coupon (I have a 20% off coupon that I can use at Home Depot or Lowe's).
My requirements are self-propelled, rear-bag and mulching.
I have narrowed my choice down to two mowers:
1) Honda HRR216TDA - Honda GCV160 5.5 hp engine (Home Depot)
2) John Deere JS20 - B&S 6.75 hp engine (this mower is new at Lowe's)
Any preferences between these two? Any other suggestions? Thanks in advance!
