Nice mowers, i see you dont discriminate against a certain brand. which one cuts the best?

ahhh YES i do discriminate. I started with the 2 toros because the dealer was in my driveway. After my first engine going 3 days after warranty was done I got screwed. So I go and buy the big diesel toro from the same guy anyways. He promises me I'll get a loaner unit whenever it is in for warranty work. It was in the shop for 2 months of the first cutting season (6 months total) and I never saw any loaner mower. I had all kinds of trouble with the dealer as well as the company itself (dealt with toro corporate) regarding warranty issues, cut quality etc. In the end I had to spend thousands on a new deck to get it to cut good (out of my pocket). Went from rear discharge to a regular turbo force side discharge deck. I own the john deere because I had to buy something to cover the toro while it was in the shop. I paid 5500 for the deere and it runs mint. I have $17,000 into the toro and the most recent was a thousand-doller hydro pump went a few weeks ago and they dont want to warranty it because I tampered with the mower by changing the deck. WELL! how about TORO bumping my RPMS up beyond factory reccomendations to try and make it cut better with the original deck????????? maybe that has something to do with the blown hydro pumps (sencond one) So now toro corporate has discontinued my warranty with what should be a year remaining. #@Q! toro. They dont stand behind their #@$%.

KUBOTA
-Awsome dealer
-Always a machine delivered to my door if something breaks.
-Brand new demo until mine came in.
-Kubota i feel is not commercial grade- it is industrial. I will take pics of some of the features..... double wide deck belts, jumbolia deck hangers, hydraulic lift, articulating front end with flat free tires, big diesels. amazing machines. All the municipalities in my area run kubota. I cut the grass for my municipality and hope to switch over to all kubota. I know they arnt big in some areas but they are top notch machines.

I love JD's too. they are good machines.
I dont bash anything but toro.

Yesss a wall of shame, such a good idea. :clapping:

I want to paint some bent blades gold and mount them on trophy stands for the end of the season gifts for the summer help :dizzy:

Nice Equipment - how do you like the bobcat utility tractor?

I like the gold blade trophy idea. Maybe I'll have to steal that from you!

The bobcat is nice. A few bugs and recalls in the beginning but I guess that is what warranty is for. The dealer was great, always had a machine ready for me when mine went in. They are built nearly the same as kioti and I believe kioti has been around for some time. Alot of tractor for the $ compared to some of the larger names. last years promotions were great too.
