    If you have a push mower is it self propelled or operator propelled LOL.

    Yes I have a self propelled John Deere but I will have to go out and look to see what model it is.

    That's pretty wild, never seen one before. I seen them gas powered before but not gas powered and self propelled.

    I can't even look at one of those without thinking about the film "Lawnmower Man" by Stephen King LOL!

    I have a "collection" of older push mowers. No two are the same and none of them have run in quite a while. I didn't intend to have a "collection" of them, they just seem to find me! BTW my lawnmowers are all propelled by self. My-self that is.

    The one I do the trimming with is a self-propelled JD I picked up at an auction a couple of years ago. It's got every little feature - 5 speeds, blade clutch, electric start. It's a garden tractor wannabe. I also have an old Pincor reel type at my parents' house that's a pretty cool little machine.

    Never heard of a Pincor. You should post some pics.

    I have one push mower I got at a yard sale 6,7 yrs ago for $15.00, it's not self propelled, I don't know what make it is, has a B&S motor, it's gray, I never use it, I don't even know if it runs.
    If I can't get to the grass with the 3wheeler it doesn't get cut. I do trim with the line trimmer around the house though.

    I used to use this John Deere self propelled. It was retired to camp.[​IMG]

    I bought this new Toro Super recycler to replace the John Deere. Like night and day.

    There is no comparison in my book. I guess I didn't write that too well. The Toro is by far a superior product. The Deere was a good unit, but it kept getting really clogged, even in normal grass. The Deere and the Toro were the same price too. The only feature that I miss from the Deere are the tight turn front wheels. It didn't take long to re-adapt to the normal fixed front wheels though. The Toro has a hose wash out port that works very well. It's on the other side. I also prefer the aluminum deck to steel.

    I have looked at the Toro's before and thought they were well built, but I'll probably not buy another "new" mower as long as I can still find 2 cycle lawn boys still around! All I use it for is cutting hillsides and the 4 cycles only last a couple of years doing that.
