I have an '09 74923 and absolutely love it!! It now has 1200 hours on it, and next year I'll be looking at a replacement. I talked with my dealer last week about getting one just like I have now, and they informed me that the 6000 series has taken over the G3 name and is now the same mower.
Problem is Toro, you guys don't offer the High Performance model anymore that I have loved! Might I ask why that is? I'm not sure that I want to settle for a 24.5hp 52" either... also does the new 6000 series have the tool-less adjustable deck baffle that my mower has?
