If this mower will eliminate a need for a pushmower on my route I will get one. If it will not double as my pushmower I will be better off getting a true 32" wb which will have a much larger engine, faster ground speed and easier to turn. Being able to switch between mulching, bagging and side discharge quickly is a major consideration in favor of the xmark/Toro. The rear bagging capability is nice too. Eliminating the need to purchase and haul around another metal bagger in the fall.

I too struggled with 32 WB or this mower, but decided on this one for reasons you mentioned above. While im testing this mower, I will be sure to evaluate its "trim mower" capability, to see if it can truely replace the 21. I run a honda hrc also, so if I can finish these lawns using only the 30, that will be the true test. The 30 does seem a bit cumbersome to turn, but we shall see. Ill be trying it out initally today, on some dry and dormant St Augustine. The customer wants me to come over and level it out in preperation for the coming season, and take care of some weeds within the lawn.
