"if you could stretch the budget to around £600, then 53-56cm Toro Recyclers or Honda Izy come into play. Toro are the machines we've had least problems with so I rate those. Many on here have mentioned the Honda Izy as being very good."

"Agree with Adam re the budget that you have available, £350-400 isn't enough  to purchase a 'wide cutting' model.  Toro produce a 30" Time Master for just over £1k. You may be able to get a good second hand machine for around half of that.  "
