Had a look at a good one on Gumtree last year - but.... 22" cut, bar blade with a 160cc 7.4ft lbs engine- smaller chute than the 217 - decided to stick with the devil I knew.

I'm constantly amazed at the prices of such equipmemt.. Greenfield, Billy Goat slashers etc 4-6k for a machine with less than half the material and tech of even a residential Zero Turn that can be had for 4k. Its a bloody ripoff!

Often wondered why they dropped their 190cc, which are still around on gumtree.

$$$$$ I guess - I don't have a life so I enjoy daydreaming about how I would do it if I was to make a mower:
 
  1. Nexite deck
  2. hydrostatic drive
  3. GXV200 - yeah, I know, why haven't Honda done any product development in 10+ years
  4. swingback blades
  5. blade brake
  6. single height adjuster
  7. Versamow bag/mulch
Hang on, isn't that just a 217 with a commercial engine and swingback blades? - Honda is so close with it - frustrating they don't see the need to improve on it - I'd redesign the deck if I was God tho - make it smaller with less front wheel overhang and a single height adjuster - dream on
