eXmark TT 36" vs. Toro Turbo Force 36"

I was pricing these two mowers... For the eXmark I'm looking at $5899 ECS with a floating deck, and for the Toro i'm looking at $3500.00 with a fixed and t-bar.

Is it really worth another $1300.00 for the eXmark? I just can't seem to justify the price difference?

You are comparing a hydro drive mower to a belt drive. Yes it is worth the extra money to get the exmark because it is a hydro and a floating deck.

Def worth it. T bar can not reverse easily. If any of your lawns have any areas where reverse is needed, then you will be happy you have a hydro.

You're right... They gave me mis-information...

$4699.00 for hydro w/ tbar Toro
$5899.00 for Hydro with ECS Exmark

So $1200.00 difference.

The current Toro T bar is not hydro, it is belt drive. They only make a 48 and a 52 in hydro. Definitely get the Exmark, well worth the extra cash.
