Which used reel Tru-Cut to buy? Honda GC or GX?

I have 2 used Tru-Cut mowers to choose from to purchase and I'd appreciate your opinion if you are familiar with these reel mowers.

1. Nearly brand new - only used a few times and it looks like it - 20" 7-blade with Honda GC135 engine 4.0 HP.


2. 13 year old 20" 7-blade with Honda GX120 engine.

Both supposedly run well. The 13 year old mower likely needs sharpening.

After negotiating, I suspect they will be within $100 of each other as far as price. Do I take the higher commercial quality but a lot older GX? Or the newer consumer level GC?

Thanks for the input.

I have a 20" inch tru-cut but by no means makes me an expert, but I know I would pick the newer one. Both good motors, but there are other things like clutches, chains, etc. that need consideration.
