    Default Best 19" self propelled mower

    As the title says I'm looking for a light weight 19" self propelled mower that's not to slow
    Anything Ian says may or may not be garbage, it may also be his own opinion or it may not be his opinion at all, it may just be something he felt like stating anyone following his advice does so at their own risk and may be doing something Ian would actually advise against.
    And if you don't like what Ian has to say use the ignore function if you don't know how ask i will gladly tell you

    No such thing as a lightweight mower these days. The Hondas have just got heavier and heavier. As soon as you say commercial, the manufacturers build the mowers along military tank specifications. Maybe the Masports could be the best option but I think they only come with Briggs motors.

    Well this may shock some folk here, but here goes, I have a cheap lightweight domestic 18" 909 brand mower from Masters 2012.
    I don't use it very often but crikey it does an ok job for me, and really light to use. When the rover 560 or the John Deere js48 are just awkward to use on smallish jobs with lots of obstacle's. I think it cost about $200.

    I've got a Masport selfpropelled designated mulch mower, with Briggs 750 on it. Initially I didn't think it'd last but going on 4yrs now. I put a victor snorkel on all my mowers and I think that helps. Years back Briggs motors didn't last long.

    I bought an old Honda HRU194 self propelled as a light back up rotary mower. It was $250 second hand from Gumtree. It's light. It's not a commercial mower but it seems like it's a good buy for $250.
