eBay determines this price through a machine-learned model of the product’s sale prices within the last 90 days. According to our research, interviews, and testing, the mower to get for most lawns under half an acre is the Honda HRX217K5VKA (If you have a lawn larger than half an acre, consider getting a riding mower.) Costing $600 at the time of writing, no doubt it’s on the expensive side, but all indications say that it is worth the cost both in performance and long-term durability. The Honda is up near the top spot at Consumer Reports and is also well-liked by Berendsohn, who called it the luxury car of walk-behind mowers.” The Honda has rear-wheel drive, a powerful 190 cc engine, and a two-blade cutting system, so it offers great traction and can tackle tall, thick grass with no problems. Though most high-end mowers can bag, side discharge, and mulch, the Honda can also shred leaves to the point that it can replace raking entirely. And it comes with a nearly indestructible (and fully warrantied) composite mowing dome. Source Medium.com.

white smoke was coming out of the exhaust. I checked the oil and it was low so I put a little bit back in and checked it again. Started it, still smoke a little bit. as I started to mow… all of a sudden it started billowing white smoke. I let go of it so it would turn off and for a few seconds it continued to sputter before finally turning off. Now I see oil on the body near the filter. Not sure what the problem is. Its only about a year old.
Growth plate fractures. When a child breaks a bone, there can be injury to the growth plate (physis). Growth plates are areas of developing cartilage tissue near the ends of long bones. These plates regulate and help determine the length and shape of mature bone. When a growth plate is severely injured, it can slow or stop growth in the bone. This can cause differences in the length or the size of limbs. Damaged growth plates also can cause limbs to grow crooked.
February 5, 2015: One of our picks, the Cub Cadet SC100 11A-A92J ($250) sells out quickly every year—but it’s in stock for now. Act fast! Cub Cadet has also just released the SC100HW ($280), which is identical to our pick except for the larger rear tires. This means it’s a better choice for rough or uneven terrain, but it makes it be a little more difficult to make a quick turn. In addition, we’ve found more than a dozen new lawnmower models we’re considering for a large update to this story in the spring.
