Toro and Honda lawn mowers are two of the most reliable brands on the market for homeowners who do their own turf maintenance. Both manufacturers offer consumer-friendly models that are easy to use and maintain.
Both manufacturers offer features on their mowers that protect consumers during operation. Honda has a blade shut-off system that allows operators to separately turn off the blades while the engine remains running, to empty the mowing bag. Toro’s blade override system protects consumers in a similar manner.
Honda offers some of the most powerful engines on the market. Models are available in push and self-propelled varieties and with side- or rear-discharge options. Custom features may be added to any model. Toro emphasizes the green aspect of its walk-behind models, including mulching capabilities and options for gas- or electric-powered engines. Models are also available in a variety of mowing widths.
Although Honda is known for its vehicles, the company doesn't manufacture riding lawn mowers. Toro has a number of models in its lineup, including three different zero-turn mowers designed specifically for homeowners. The company’s larger lawn and garden tractors feature high horsepower for hauling and towing specialized attachments.
