The place I bought my Honda mower from put them above Atco and on par with a company I'd never heard of 'Masport' (Aussie company apparently) which have aluminium decks. Above that they put John Deer, but in their words "They are expensive for most people's needs".
I was impressed that all the guy I was speaking to did was answer my questions and didn't pressure us in any direction. It was only when I asked the standard question "If you were buying which would you go for?" that he offered his direct opinion. Even then he did qualify it by saying it was 90 quid dearer than the Atco.
He explained the differences between the mowers thoroughly, and the potential advantages / drawbacks of the different items. In all they must have had the best part of 50 mowers on display.
