help choosing a push mower

chrisc102March 22, 2014

I am looking for recommendations for a simple push mower. I am a 60 yr old woman so I do not want something too heavy, my main priority is easy manuverability and easy to start.
I am looking at troybilt TB 130 and Husqvarna 7021P online. I would appreciate any recommendations for my needs.

The Husqvarna has the edge I think.Both have the Honda engine which is good. Is there any question on getting an electric start? Should you want one several years- it cannot be added.

I got a great electric start self propelled (u still have to push it some) at Sears for around $349? Craftsman 725 series, Briggs and Stratton engine. I positively could not pull to start my prior mower. This one has a pull cord just in case the battery is dead. But u can keep it charged when parked.You can catch the grass clippings or let them fall on the lawn with the mulching blade. I'm around the same age as u are and a small lady.

I'd suggest looking at a Honda HRX. The deck is made out of car bumper material so it won't rust, and it's pretty light. I like the control on it because it feels intuitive so you can speed up/down easier.

Your best bet is to goto different dealers or box stores and ask to push around the floor models to get a feel.
