What exactly is the T-bar? I've heard about it, but I haven't ever demoed a Toro yet.

We first bought Toro's in 1985 - the year they came out. We were already using their GroundsMasters and it was a good fit.<p>We loved the T-Bar.<p>The T-bar became less attractive with the velke because you have your hands on the moving bar and not somthing solid.<p>The T-Bar became even less atractive with the Hydro because they were touchy and jumpy. They've corrected that a bit, but still...<p>When the T-Bar 1st came out it was light years better than anything else in the mid-80's. Now it's still nice, but I could go either way.

i think its harder to stay in a strait line than the regular brake type handle and i also found that the front end pops up pretty easy. they have a really good cut though<p>----------<br>CJC Landscape Management<br>Winter Haven, Florida

If you have any lawns with hills, forget the toro. Pistol-grip is the way to go for hills and strait lines. <p>----------<br>spreble<br>

I prefer pistol grips. They track straight, unlike a T-Bar which you must keep tracking straight. <p>As a matter of fact, I have a 36&quot; hydro with T-Bar for sale. Some people wouldn't ever use a pistol grip. Find what suits you best.<p>John<br>
