I checked out the Poulan because I've been considering a Honda mower.

The Poulan has 11" large rear wheels, where the Honda does not. The handle bar controls look like they may be more comfortable on the Poulan.

The Honda has twin blades. I didn't check if the Poulan does or not, but this seems to be an important feature of the Honda mowers. The Honda has a "Clip/Mulch" lever. I always leave my mower in mulch mode, so that's not important to me. Honda has a 3-year warranty instead of 2 years for the Poulan.

It looks like the Poulan may be a special model just for Costco. It doesn't even look like any other Poulans I see online.

If the Poulan doesn't have twin blades, I would probably pay a bit more for the Honda. Otherwise, they seem like pretty similar values.

.
I need a new lawn mower too since the shoulder bolt assembly on my 7yo Toro is stripped and I'm sick and tired of the whole handle flying off mid mow.

Beauty of Costco is they will take things back although I've never abused the policy like I've seen some people in line do. I got off phone with Costco Visa rep and they add 2yr ADDITIONAL warranty to manufacturer's warranty. Basically, 4 yr warranty at very reasonable $350. Planning to pull the trigger although may not even take it out of box for another month or two depending on what the crazy weather does.

If anyone actually knows, I would be curious if the Poulan also has a twin blade feature since I always mulch only.

Maybe someone can check the display model to see if it has twin blades. I didn't think about it when I was there, and I can't find any info on this exact model online.

Thanks for checking.. I wonder if the Honda HRR216K9VKA at $399 is a better buy with twin blade

Thanks. In that case, I think I'd stick with a Honda mower for $50 more.

Any chance there will be a better price than $399 for the Honda HRR216K9VKA? I rarely seem them discounted. I need to replace my old Honda mower soon.

Best I've found is Blain's Farm and Fleet. $399 - $5 with promo code WELCOME5. Be Frugal has 5% cashback, which makes it $374.30 net delivered.

If you order by May 31, you get an extra 1-year warranty. 4 years total.
