Hello All.
I'm new to the forum and this is my first post.
I've always had lawnmowers with an aluminium deck/chassis. My present one is a Honda HRD536C HXE with hydrostatic drive and an alloy deck.
It's about 12 years old now and the GCV160 engine is very worn.
I'm looking at the new models and they seem to be made of polymer/xenoy material .
Has anyone any experience of having used one with a Xenoy body.
I'm wondering how scratch/score resistant they are?
I sometimes pick up a stone, twigs or bits of dog's bones.
Would debris like that badly score the inside of the body?
I would appreciate any advice.
Thanks,
Wolf

Hi Wolf

The polymer deck are quite good... no corrosion can take place in plastic... the only down might be the plastic deck could warped in time to come, while aluminium is more of a stronger matrail,... i think the old aluminium deck mowers where not a good or as strong as most aluminium deck mowers of today, i would go aluminium deck honda has long warranty on new mowers i think also take a look at John deere mowers they have 15 year warranty and good collection system for cutting wet grass...
