I picked this mower up at a garage sale for $35. It has a lot of battle scars but it still has managed to remain solid after years of abuse by the P.O.

The engine on it is a Honda GXV110. It produces 5hp, has an OHC design and a small auxiliary shaft for the drive. It's nice and quiet, but very complicated to repair and very hard to get parts for.

The transmission is a single speed, shaft driven RWD unit that has plenty of power and traction. No real complaints.

The deck is made of high quality aluminum and has seemed to stand up very well to the test of time.

The controls are very user friendly and help alot in negotiating obstacles where the drive has to be engaged and disengaged repeatedly.

Overall, it's a very reliable and well preforming lawn mower. I'd recommend it to any homeowner.

I have one that's just a few years older, but it's a sure good lawn mower. The only thing I don't like about it is that it does'nt have a side dicharge chute.

Side discharge chutes were available to put in place of the mulch plug, they are just hard to find.

Actually, it doesn't have a mulch plug, it's only made to use with a bagger. I thought maybe I could cut a hole out of the alumanum casting and fasten a piece of rubber around the hole for a chute but I'm afraid I'd make a mess of it.
