Thanks Robert, finally some warm weather toys to look at!
I'm still enjoying my Honda HRX217VKA, but I'm wondering when Honda will come out with a WAM to compete with the Toro Timemaster?
Honda should be a player in the over 22" market. Come on Robert, put that in the suggestion box for me please.

Yeah, get a lot of requests for a 30" walk-behind...I'm sure our R&D team is looking at it, but many remember the old HRC7000-series models we sold in the 90s, that were not big sellers:



We had these with a 13hp, 18hp, and 20hp power/tractor unit, and 36", 42" 52" and 60" mower decks. Hydrostatic or gear drive. You could also fit a snowblower or sweeper broom, and there was even a pull-behind sulky. Really could not compete with ZTR machines...

Honda should go the Toro route. The Toro Turffmaster commercial and the Toro Timemaster residential share a lot of parts and fill a nice part of the market that the zero turns can't.
