The EGO 21-inch handles side discharge bagging and mulching. It is designed for use in all weather and even features LED headlights for when mowing in heavily-shaded areas or after dark. There are six deck heights to pick from and adjustments are made with a single lever. EGO backs the quality of their mowers with a five-year limited warranty.
The Honda HRX217VKA is at or near the top of all of the expert best lawn mower lists including Popular Mechanics Top Ten Reviews and Lawn Mower Review. The testers at Consumer Reports gave this model top ratings for handling bagging and mulching and “very good” ratings for ease of use and side discharging. Additionally the reviewer estimated the breakage rate by the fourth year of ownership to be 16% which is well below any of the other mowers they tested.
Other items and supplies include a plastic drip tray motor oil and a container for waste oil. Often a large piece of cardboard is useful as well an old rag or cloth. Also know that this guide deals with push or self-propelled mowers not riding mowers. While some advice here applies they are another animal altogether.
