      Sorry for late reply, busy wknd for me. The caster tires are even with each other and do not extend out past the width of the deck.

      Dear All Toro 4 ME; Thanks for the quick reply.I talked to my dealer today about purchasing one (cost,how long to get in, etc) I believe if I decide to do something it will be between an exmark tthp 09 (good price) or the toro t2 (electric start, nice). I did have one question are the front tires even or is one side offset a little due to 2 blade 36 inch cut. Thanks Allen

      Scag Guy,
      Thanks for the question. My 36 T2 has performed very well for me. I have the mulching kit installed so there's never a worry about excess clippings. It does fine in wet grass or grass with morning dew. It does clog some during the early cutting season, April/May, but it's a five minute job to scrape it off with a 4'' wide paint scraper. By June, the deck stays pretty clear regardless of moisture. I buy the cheapest off brand cooking spray from wal-mart and spray the deck about once every 2 weeks and it seems to do a really good job. The T2 is very comparable to the controls on a Z. If you get the T2, consider the trutrak as well. It will save you a ton of time and it folds up if you don't need it or for extra space on your trailer. The weight listed according to the toro literature you read is pretty accurate. However, I bought mine in 2008, so the hp is actually 17. Everything else is the same. Toro increased the hp by 1 across the board on their wb's for 2010. As far as tracking and rutting, it really depends. We had over 6'' of rain in May, so probably not ideal conditions for running the machine with trutrak. In those cases, I usually run it with the trutrak up, and it does fine when the ground is incredibly wet. You may notice some rutting, but it really depends on how wet the ground is and whether or not the trutrak is being used. Depending on the conditions you mow on, you may need to check into the front weights. From time to time, hills, valleys, ditches etc the machine's front end will pop up because of the weight imbalance from the engine and operator/trutrak. I believe each weight weighs around 16.4 lbs. I have the max availiable on mine, 4. It seems to hold the front end down very well and prevents having to go over spots again that were missed due to the front popping up. The T2 comes with flat free front caster tires, but the trutrak comes with tubed tires. I had a lot of issues with the trutrak tires going flat from rough terrain, above ground tree roots, rocks etc. The trutrak tires are cheap made and not worth the rubber they're made with. I found some flat free tires at gemplers.com that are the same size as the trutrak tire. If you need the link, just let me know, it's saved on a different computer. You'll just need to grind the hubs down a bit with your grinder and they'll fit perfectly. I haven't had any issues since. Any other questions or if you need pics of anything, just let me know...

      Dear All toro 4ME:
      I see on LS that you have a TORO T2 36 wb mower. How do you like it? I have a Scag 61 tt ztr and aquick 36 dually wb. I am thinking about moving up to a toro-scag-exmark wb. I don't really want pistol grips, not sure about ecs controls, and the t2 seems to bed like my contols on my dually 36 and scag tt. I did wonder acording to toro literature that 18 hp 36 cut is a very heavy wb 667lbs. Do you track or rut a lot? I only use a wb 10 hours a week so this will last me a long time 15 years, I just want to make sure I get it right. Any info would really be appreciated. E-mail or call me at 812-305-6198 Thank you very much in advance, Allen
