Evening all, this is my first post in a long time but I thought where better to go than LJN!. I have had a search through the forums but I can't find exactly what i'm looking for so here goes.

I'm looking at buying a new mower and have been drawn to the Etesia duocut models and mainly the 53 do any of you guys run this model? what are your thoughts? 

We've currently got the duocut 46 rmhb on demo, i've used it today in pretty dry conditions but in really long grass and i'm pretty impressed so far.

We've been using hondas (HRX 476) wheeled version, it's a great mower but struggles badly in the wet when we need to collect, it's also starting to get to that age where it feels like something might give... It does do allot of work as we have some bigger commercial places that are mulched so I need a mower that will mulch and collect without having to blade change etc like the Honda and the Etesia Duocut. The only thing putting me off the Etesia is the cost and the weight!! So basically here is my criteria, if any of you guys have any other options or advice it would be great to here..

19-21 inch cut

Must be able to mulch and collect well in the wet

quick forward speed

robust and reliable 

cheers all

          • I think that's why it is important to always have backup machines....... even if its just an old machine that was picked up cheap on Ebay.

          And thats what stops me buying one. I'd have a Duocut tomorrow.
