Choosing A High End Mower At Home Depot

When you go shopping at Home Depot for a lawn mower if your looking at push mowers you typically will see three choices. On the lower end is the MTD mowers. Next you'll find the Toro Recycler and Toro Super Recycler mowers. Then for the big spender you'll find Honda Lawn Mowers.

MTD Lawn Mowers are inexpensive typically priced around $150.00 for a push mower with a bagger. MTD mowers are reliable but tend to lack features like self propel and one pull starting.

Toro makes the Toro Recycler and Toro Super Recycler mowers priced from $300 - $450 depending on the model. The Toro Recycler 20066 is one of the more popular models at a very reasonable price. The Toro Recycler line of mowers will start with 1/2 to 1 pull and has the rope etc located in ergonomic positions. Other features like personal pace which moves the mower in a sef propel fasion at whatever pace you walk make the Toro a nice choice.

Honda HRX mowers are priced above $500 sometimes into the $600 range and offer all the great features that the Toro Recycler has but with more detail. Honda has a feature that lets you choose the size of the clippings that reach the bag vs turning into mulch. While nice, the gap between the Honda and Toro is wide so you should do your research carefully.
