I want to ask, I've been thinking my next pushmow will be a Toro Recycler like those you have. I'm guessing they do okay if you have 3 of them. I see alot of pros have them. I'm not impressed with the $1200 commercial 21's at all so just wanted to find out what you thought of them.
I really like the setup I have! The personal pace mowers are nice until it gets a bit wet! Real early in the morning when there is dew or right after a rain storm they tend to have to be emptied more often. This was more of a problem on the older models but the series last year got alot better with their bagging design! I have used commercial push mowers and I actually have 2 that were nice until parts on them broke but i will take my $400 home depot toro personal pace mower any day over those! Also they do surprisingly good on hills even the steep ones! When I start mowing this year I will post alot more pictures especially of some of the hills! This year I think I am going to buy the John Deere personal pace mower. They seem to have a nice design and I want to see how it compares to the toro! I also plan on adding a 36" this year if i can afford one because it would be nice on some of the smaller yards and speed up production! So, after all of my rambling, overall i would recommend the toro 21'' mowers!
