Hi everyone.

I'm looking for a high end 21" mower for my home. I only have about 0.25ac, but I appreciate fine equipment and want something that will last. I mulch 90-95% of the time (very sandy soil which needs all the nutrients it can get), and bag leaves and such the other 5-10%. I want something that won't bog down, and prefer to have features that most commercial mowers have (ie. ball bearing wheels).

Currently, I have a Lawn Boy Insight 10686 (6.5hp Tec), a John Deere 14SB (4.5hp FC150V), and an MTD Pro stainless (Honda GCV160). I would probably sell these 3 to help fund the new purchase, and my budget would be up to about $1,200.

So far from my research, I think my best options are probably:

Honda HRX (GCV190 engine)
Snapper commercial with additional Ninja mulching blade & either the GXV160 or FJ180 engine
Toro Proline commercial (used)
Toro Super Recycler (w/ the GCV160)
Restore my John Deere 14SB (new engine and BBC would be about $300)

Any suggestions/recommendations?

You already have some fine mowers. Why not do the last one and just restore the JD or put some money into the mowers your currently do own to match your needs.
