Tomorrow, I am going to buy all my stuff for this season. I have been going to all dealers leaving me with a last choice.

I never bag except on falls to pick up leafs.

So, Giving the fact I never mulch and I have no info on dealer #1, which choice would you make?


Dealer #1= Dealer service: no info on it, about 15-20miles far

Ferris Hydrocut 32" (3100$) + Toro 21" (1250)

Dealer #2= Dealer service: good feedbacks, about 5-10 miles far

Ferris Hydrocut 32" (3400$) + Snapper 21" (990$)

First, what does the fact that you never mulch have to do with which dealer you choose.

I would make dealer 2 meet the price dealer 1 gave you. OR buy from dealer 1 and have dealer 2 service it depending on their service rates and personal experience.

I wouldn't buy either of the 21's IMO

Also IMO, I wouldn't be buying new if my screen name was "I am a beginner".

I don't really understand what the problem is?

The only difference between the 2 dealers is $40 regarding equipment, and maybe 5-10miles in distance. I would go with #2 since they're closer and have good feedback?

I wouldn't think you would need a 21" if you have a 32". A 32" will go almost anywhere. Do you have a special need for the 21"? I would buy the 32" and keep the rest of the cash, unless you have some areas you really need a 21".

Buy the 32 from dealer two, make him price match. Get a HO grade 21" IF you really need it. Use difference towards a multi-tool setup and do full maintenance.

You could get a one step down snapper model, add the back braces, and steel wheels for a lot cheaper than 990 and end up with the exact same mower.

I said I ONLY mulch do get feedbacks regarding 21" Toro or 21" Snapper.
I want to buy a 32" and a 21" because we are a 2 man crew.
One on the 32" and one on the 21"

Isnt it a standard setup? The 32" mow all the time, 21" mow do the details, trim and blow!

I have a 36 that never touches anyones front yard until we get up to the 3/4th to 1 acre lots. We are doing 5k lots and it does not cut worth a crap on small yards. On my 3/4th to 1acre lots it gets broken out for the front yards and does fine. Unless you are only doing large lots you absolutely need the 21. I love the cut quality of a 21 inch snapper with a ninja mulching blade. My only complaint is the drive system starts out like a rocket when you engage it. Takes some getting used too.
