osu, it seems most people who own a tbar like it, in your opinion what are the pros and cons of the control system?

Biggest thing is comfort and ease of control. It is a lot nicer using the tbar system all day than squeezing on pistol grips. I would reccomend going and testing the 2 out to see what you think.

Are you selling the stander? I would get the t-bar if you had to choose between those.

I wont sell the stander, it will remain my most used mower, but I want the WB so i can get back in the yards after a few days of rain like we have had. Im scared to put the stander in a few of my yards right now, dont want to rut.

Hows business?

Toro T-bar hands down. You use very little hand muscle to operate it. I ran a T-bar for 6 yrs and went to a Exmark. I will be returning to Toro again and will never look back.
