I'm excited too!

I have the opportunity to get a brand new Honda 724WA. Never been used. Can get it for 1500. As I understand, these things go for around 2300?
Just hesitant to spend that much $$ and of course the Toro 521 and the Ariens 724 woipuld have to go, but.... I'm very tempted. If I go look at it I'll definitely buy it. Just not sure. Waddyall think?

Just wondering if I should get it though? That fwd/rev shifting might be somehing of a pain? You can't just release'the drive and pull it back. You actually have to shift it.

I really don't know much about them, so I can't recommend it for you! But, everyone loves their Hondas!

For $1500 I really don't think you can go wrong. I've only owned track drive Hondas (HS55, HS928, and HS1132) but they're all great machines and there are definitely a marked improvement over what you currently have. But if for some reason you don't like it you'll have no trouble getting your money back out of it.
