I never said you bought the wrong machine. You didn't buy it anyways, and I am sure you will get accustomed to it. And you may even go on thinking it's the greatest... because like many of the others here... you'll have never tried a Quick 36 and you won't know any better.

But my guess is that if it's a pistol grip setup... it won't take you long to get tired of squeezing those to steer/control the machine.

If all you are mowing is flatter postage stamp lawns, it's hard to beat the Quick 36 for it's size, weight and simplicity. If you are mowing lots of steeper slopes, deep steep ditchlines, etc... then it's hard to beat a dual drive walkbehind because you have true independent control of both rear tires.
Well said Envy

It's a T-Bar. I just push or pull it.

Quick36 should offer the dual type also for those of us who have to cut in ditches and hills and that would solve all problems and then there would be no debate.

The T-Bar isn't bad... not near as bad as the pistol grips.

Toro took it off their Hydro line for a long time though. I didn't know it was back in force. Hopefully they have re-worked the issues involved in why they took it off in the first place...

I didn't know you were cutting steep hills and ditches. I assumed you were not because since I do too, I have found we are in the minority on here. Most of the country is flat... and most of the people here mow flatlands.

You probably have the better drive setup for the application.

The Single Hydro Walkbehinds like Quick36 are easier to maneuver on flat areas and the Dual Type Hydro Walkbehinds are better for ditches and Hills!

I'm just glad we finally got all that cleared up and don't have to argue anymore!!!

He also said that some people made some rude comments about IP's but there were so many helpful posting that he said to ignore them and focus on the positive!

I feel better about my purchase now and I am looking forward to cutting some grass!!!!!

I have to agree with you on this one Xoopiter ... still no pictures yet, too.

These people have never seen a lawn mower or a women before (assuming it's a women).

I have had NO need for a dual hydro and Ive used my Quick for one year...and mow around 60 accounts. But thats ME! To each his own..or her own. Katie got a Toro...good for her...no need to bash her. We pretty much make a big deal here over which mower to get...GET THE ONE YOU FREAKIN LIKE! Geez! I love my Quick 36...and i love the company...they make GREAT machines...and will bend over backwards...do back flips...juggle...walk a high wire...paint a murial...and most of all offer great customer service for you. Toro makes a good mower too---but when I tested one for a couple days...i simply did not like it. Doesnt mean its poo poo...it just wasnt what i wanted. Good for you Katie...good luck...and kick some butt this year! Quite frankly I think its cooler than heck that a woman is out there running a LCO.
