    I done a search for them when i used a mates a few weeks ago. Could only find them on eBay (is that the only place you can buy them ?)

    I noticed they did have a 22" 52cc as well as a 22" 62cc for sale.

    I've always thought a "22 inch Bar" meant a "22 inch bar"...

    Does bar length refer to actual "cut" length or length of the bar (off the machine).

    The bolt-up, dogs etc, would reduce the actual cutting capacity.

    The bar length is generally measured from the tip of the bar to the end of the bar studd cut out, nearest to the tip.The overall bar length is not the true length.

    Does anyone have a contact number for these guys ? I have been looking at the Honda 21 inch but I cant seem to get a number to have a chat about the warranty. I have read some of what you guys have said about AGR, if the Honda is that bad how come they have not been shut down, and I'm sure Honda would not be to happy about their product being badly promoted.

    What is the best goping price around the place for a Honda 21 inch ?

    Cheers

    I bought a blower from these guys when I started a few months ago. Lasted 20 mins before the choke snapped, waited 3 weeks for a replacemnt part and that snapped straightaway also. gave up and bought another blower. They aren't the best.

    The Honda motor they use are great its what they are sitting on that's the problem.

    I brought a genuine 216 a couple of months ago for $1300.00 that was the best i could get in Brisbane.

    If you cant get a number to chat to them now about buying one imagine what its going to be like when you have a problem.

    Another member on here brought some from world mowers and seems happy with them. here is the thread http://www.indmowing.com.au/forum/sh...1945#post21945

    I would be getting one at your local dealer, if you have any problems they are just down the road and not hard to reach.

    Thats fine if ya local dealers fine...
    Our Honda dealer is an absolute goose!!!
    All us lawnies here go to Cairns. I could go on and on about this bloke but I wont, after one certain conversation with this bloke I was tempted to call Handa direct and tell them about the amount of business their representative was driving away from our town.
    If you dont have a local dealer (or he's a goose) buy ya parts in bulk, saves && and you'll have ya bits and peices at the ready.

    Excellent. Thanks Admin.
    If they do and want any testimonials I and some others I know would be happy to oblige. Like I said before I wont prattle on on a public forum all the details. It is a shame though because in Cairns we get fantastic service.

    Hey mojoman I have the same problem I am not overly impressed with my dealer either, but like the honda and sthil products he sells.

    so i buy it and send it to the local victa guy who is a champ if there is a problem I cant fix he can get spares as well, and I get blades and filters etc from indi.

    Hi Guys

    Ok still have had not feed back from these guys in any way have done some searching on the web and still cant find much detail on this business, they seem to not want to be found.

    I read the bit about Honda reading what is written on this site, surely they would not be happy with what AGR are doing to the Honda name, as in saying its all Honda and yet from what I have read it is not other than the motor.

    So are you guys saying that even if anyone pays say $900 for the mower it snot worth the trouble ? I'm only just starting out here in WA and as many of you would know the cost of setting up is high, a Lawn mower with the brand name of Honda for $900 is a good saving for me, especially seeing I want to purchase 2.

    I guess you guys would be in the know and if you say stay away well I guess you canít argue with that.

    I think I asked before but I will ask again..... is there anyone business in WA that gives a really good deal on Honda Lawn Mowers, actually I will expand on that a little, is Honda the best way to go ? I like the idea that the one AGR is selling has a 21 inch cut.

    Back to you guys for advice...Cheers

    Honda is still the best mower on the market their motors and products are the best .

    Try Bob Johnson AT MEY www.mey.com.au.

    Yes you are right about Honda being not very happy actually they are dealing with the situation as we speak .


    Now the Aussie dollar as dropped those guys may vanish if they havent already .
