For all around dependability and longevity you are not going to beat the Toro Proline.

Thats my top 3. I have a JX75 now and love it. My next 21" will probably be a Honda commercial. Like the Prolines too though...maybe I just need one of everything?:laugh:

My Toro 21" Proline cuts great .....if i'm bagging. Can go at top speed, which is almost running................when I'm bagging.
But it don't mulch worth a cr*p.

Perform routine maintenance, prolines are a long time waring out.

I have four Toro proline’s (One is an Exmark metro 21, identical to the proline 21 without the plastic recycler mulching kickers) two are powered by 6.0 Kawasaki’s; two are powered by 5.5 Suzuki’s.One of the Suzuki powered Toro's was placed into service during the 1997 season; it still runs like a champ. Every few seasons a drive belt and tires replacement but that is about it. I wouldn’t trade my Suzuki powered proline's for any other 21" mower period. However, you just can't find the Suzuki’s anymore. It is a great shame, due to EPA regulations,Toro was forced to drop the Suzuki as an engine option for proline 21’s.

I hate to say it, but it depends on how much you are going to use it. If you only do postage stamps and will use it all the time, sure, get a Honda or Toro. If it will only be used once or twice a week for a small, gated backyard, then get the cheapest one you can find. It will take you alot longer to recoup your investment on a high dollar piece than a cheapy.
Used infrequently, a cheapy will give you several years of use easily.

I am a lucky owner of the suzuki driven proline as well :waving:

Is "Proline" the old name for Toro commercial 21s.

Now they advertise "heavy duty", "hi-vac bagger", and "trim" versions.

Which do you use and which compares to the "proline" series.

This is certainly true, BUT, there is no reason to spend $1000 on a 21" mower if you only use it 20 minutes per week. My 21" mowers get used way less than homeowners mowing their own lawn.
