I'm a new home owner, and have about 5,000sqft to cut. I'm looking for a self-propelled, rear drive, 3in1 style mower.
I've heard good things about Honda Mowers. Anyone have any preferences?
From what I see there are:
Craftman, Honda, MTD, Toro, Briggs&Stratton Engines that are the good brands?

I don't know your circumstances, but are you sure you couldn't handle a "human-powered" mower? I push a reel-type mower once a week over an expanse of lawn totalling about the same square-footage as what you have and I look forward to the two hours of exercise I get. Mother Earth will thank you too: even a modern lawn mower engine spews 10 times the amount of smog-causing gases into the air as a car -- the figures are much worse for older or improperly tuned engines ( http://www.santacruzsentinel.com/archive/2003/November/29/local/stories/10local.htm ).

I would seriously look at Toro personal pace. For the money, I think it is the best deal out there.
