I like toro, BC, machines as we have rented them along with the dw but I am getting the vid on here that dw may be the way to go??
I think the dw is probably slightly better. I have owned Toro, bobcat, boxer and vermeer mini skids. And my favorite is the cheapest one. I don't think I could spend 20k on a new one, when you can buy a used toro dingo tx425 with 500 hrs for 6k. You could replace the motor 4 times and it would still be cheaper than a new dw650. Is a 10% performace increase worth the 14k difference? What is roi on that 14k? 5 years?
