Default Mower Died

This week my 26 year old Snapper Commercial push mower died. It's time to look for a replacement.

Looking for something that will last me another 20 years.

Whats your opinion of the best 22" Cut push/self propelled mower available. Options: Bagger, Mulcher, or Side discharge.

Ive heard:
Snapper -The quality has gone down?
Honda - Plastic parts that wear out fast?
Exmark - ??
Toro - ??

Honda commerical. However, you won't find those at your local hardware store and they cost a bunch.

My Craftsman 16.5 briggs and stratton still running after 17yrs. Everybody laughed when I bought a Sears riding mower. Well I,ve taken care of it! Changed the filter and oil 2 times a year and keep the blades sharp.

Bad Boy push mowers @ Tractor Supply. Pro motors on it even have a small oil filter to help extend life. The deck is made of a lot heavier steel than most current models.

Honda HR17, about $700, 21" cut. My friend's dad has been using his for 10+ years and has never had a second's trouble out of it. Never even been in the shop.
