Guys i'm after a new lawnmower. I've got a few lawns to do starting this season and don't think my 20 year old Hayter will last. I like to buy good quality if i can so was looking at the Honda, however i do see a lot with rusted decks. Is this still a problem with new ones. If so are any other recommended

cheers paul

You can buy replacement Izy decks for £100, they are a good mower but quite frankly most mowers will give three good years. So I would get as wide a cut as possible, with a good motor and self propelled and write it off over three seasons. £100 for a new deck is well on the way to a new mower.

I take it the Honda still rusts then, is it just them or a common thing with other brands. I had thought of just running it for 3/4 years and buying new.

Well, it is the stone chips and wet grass that gets stuck under the deck that causes the rust. I was looking at a plastic deck mower but wondered if it would fatigue out with the vibration. I have a McCulloch that is six now and it has earned its keep. I have been pleased with the Briggs and Stratton motor. As soon as it plays up it will be replaced.

Yea and i suspect the deck quality is probably a bit suspect too.
