These same blades can be cut down for the Q44 as well.

The new Exmark is working very well for the type of lawns we mow. We mowed 55 smaller lawns with it Tuesday without any problems. I think the Quick 32 will be retired from now on.

We have been mowing lush wet lawns the last day or so and haven't had to many problems. Did have to scrape the deck twice today. Have been using MowDeck on the under side and keeps the mower from plugging as much.
I do admit the Bravo 25 is way better in mowing lush wet grass and we use it on the thickest of lawns but give it a month and the 30 will shine.

If Toro/Exmark is following this I would like to put in a request on a high lift non mulching blade, and a way to quiet the mower, sounds like a diesel with the rattle under the belt cover.

Are you bagging all lawns?

What blades are you currently running on the Q32...? Single notch..?

Single Q32 or Dually?

We have to bag almost all the time. I have the single Q32. Didn't like dumping the heavy bag, doesn't work on slopes, clogs up when wet. It does leave a nice cut when dry. So far the Exmark 30 is working great for us.

does the bag fill up full or does it get caught in the chute when wet?

Kind of does both. I have moved on from the Q32. It probably would work fine in a dryer climate. It's wet in the mornings even during the summer here. Smaller lawns are much more profitable anyway.

Quick 32 mower are very limited by the use of the stock 92-053 blades.

If that was the only blade I had to use for my Q32's they would of been long gone.

I wonder if it is possible to use an accelerator bag on the Exmark? is there a need for one in wet conditions or does it bag pretty well (in wet)?

also I am curious the pros and cons of Exmark verses the Ybravo? I have tried the ybravo and after seeing this thread decided to try and demo an exmark next week, the problem is finding any dealers who allow you to demo anymore. Finally found someone who will let me try it for an hour.

anybody that can chime in on the bravo verses exmark I would appreciate it.
