I know this post is severely off topic but I need help and by researching the number of people that visit this board, it seems like I can get my questions answered in a short amount of time. I looked into the other boards and participation is not as great as this one, so here is my story: Friends, I need some help. I have to invest in a new lawn mower for my home because my Craftsman mower has rotted away, literally. I've searched message boards and found many opinions, good and bad on every type of mower imaginable so I'm somewhat confused at this point. What is the best brand of lawn mowers and which brands do you all possess? Ive heard many good things about Honda's and John Deeres, are there other good brands with very little problems? If Im going to spend over $150 for a mower, I may as well invest in a Honda or JDeere, don't you think? Please reply to this post if you want to.
