Help with mower choice... MTD Platinum Series

tedsheehanApril 7, 2010

I am in the market of buying a new push mower.

My budget is around $300.00.

I have the option of purchasing the below lawn mower for for 298.00. It seems like it has some great features and it has a honda engine which is a plus.

What do you all think? Should I get it?

if I didn't get this I think I was going to go for a Toro, or maybe a John Deere.

Any advice?

Thanks in advance,

Ted

The Toro or Deere would be a better mower. My choice would be Toro but I haven't looked closely at Deere lately.

Why do you think I should go with the Toro or Deere, rather than the MTD?
