I have always used Toro WB's and Z's, i have been told that i would like Emark better if I tried them. What does everybody think is the better machine and why???

From testing I think exmark has better walk behind controls. The cut is about the same for sidedischarge. As for the z by looks they are about the same with minor differances.

Turbo Force decks on the new Toro is the one of my reasons for buying the z500

the only down side is I havent found a cool little model for the toro z like John has....

My understanding is that they are one in the same. My ExMark dealer said Toro owns ExMark as of 3 years ago. They are slowly mixing the best of both.

Not 3 yrs ago. In 1997. The operate as 2 seperate companies. eXmark build the tractor portion of the ZTR's and toro puts their deck and a few other things on them. Toro has a few w/b that are eXmarks with toro stickers.

The mowers are different. The decks are different. They do cut different. They are different companies owned by one company.
