Advice For New Mower

Hi All


I' new here and looking at purchasing a new self propelled mower, have around 1000SQM of lawn to do in Brisbane - residential only


Want something that catches well and I usually mow reasonably low every few weeks


I have been looking at the following


Victa Corvette Commercial Self Propelled 850 I/C


Victa Commercial Vanguard Self Propelled


Honda Self Propelled HRU216M2


Not sure if I should go with the bigger 190cc engine on the 850 or if the smaller engines on the others would suffice - rarely mow wet grass and almost always catch. Would prefer a deck that will not rust out.


Any advice on pros and con for each or any other make would be appreciated.
