Need a 32in mower

I have a toro 32in floating tbar that I am not happy with the cut quality. I am looking to replace it with a 32 because I want to be able to get into backyards. So I am trying to get some names thrown out there that are good for MULCHING. I would also like to be able to bag if needed. I have looked at the wright and liked what i saw but i have heard mixed reviews and I would have to deal with spacers to change the height. So give me some names of mowers that I can look into that you know are good. I personally thing the toro i have would be a good machine if they wouldn't have been cheap and lazy and put two blades on the danm thing like exmark did.

I don't think Toro was being "cheap or lazy." They have two different 32" models...one is the same mower you have, and the other is a two-blade model :http://www.toro.com/en-us/Profession...aspx?pid=30632.

Using the spacers for height changes is simple. I mow the majority of my St. Aug lawns on 3", but can easily go between 2.5"-4" on my fixed deck.

Trust me, you don't want more than two blades on a 32" mower...it will clog like hell in wet grass.

Yeah, i know i dont want more then two blades. I should have gotten the 32 that came with two blades. I have the floating deck which means it has a single blade and it cuts like crap.
