That blade has 5/8" hole. Toro blade is 21/32 and the 2 timing holes are 3/16" or 5/16"

I use the 91-369 blades on the Q44 and that is the same desired design just longer for the Q32 91-313.

My concern is that the 91-369 would be too heavy.

I'll weigh the difference on my postage scale.

I'm just grateful I can run the higher lift commercial bend blades on my TimeMaster.

Im giving my Exmark 30 a once over today and im confused because I see no primer bulb. It says in the manual that there is a primer bulb. I never owned a fj180v kai before so am I missing something?

If it is the same as the FJ180 on the toro there is a choke. Push the throttle a little further forward for choke and pull it back till you feel the click to take it off.

The only time I have seen a primer bulb on that engine is when they eliminated the choke on one of my Toro 21's. It was an emission's thing required by C.A.R.B. for that year, but that might have been just a California thing. I'm glad that the Exmark's have choke cause that engine was a PITA to start when cold.

I have a 36" Ferris single hydro. So far the most reliable mower I have ever owned, very little problems for the past 5 years. I'm getting a new one since it's pretty beat up, perhaps a 32" model this time.

Also getting a new 21" for tighter spots, bagging and hills.

Btw, how does the exmark 30" perform for bagging?

When the blades are engaged on the Exmark or Toro commercial....can the throttle and of course rpm's be dropped with the blades engaged...?

Can't do this with my TimeMaster30 but I wish I could.

I do this with my yBravo25 to a limited degree and I do this constantly with my BOP mowers for less blade tip speed on pass #1 when I know growth dictates a second pass.

Yep. My Ferris wb has been my most reliable mower over the years. I would like a 32" but the price point does not make sense for the limited use it would get. Been looking for a used 32 Ferris but not much luck in my search. A new snapper 32" belt drive 32" for around $2500 is an option. I was impressed with what I seen and they really had ease of maintenance in mind when they built this unit.

We used to mulch everything with our 36 inch Exmark hydro's years ago. It had a mulch set up basically alot like the 30 inch, with special mulch blades. It did work better, but we had some difficulties with it dropping grass piles were we turned and crossing side walks the wheels would leave green grass tracks that were impossible to get out. You also had to watch were you shut off the blades, because it dropped a green piled mess of grass. We used mow-deck spray which helped the deck,but you still had grass build up. It did a great job on leaves. I think it would mulch better on the 30's. I really think smaller mowers mulch better. You also would have to keep the deck higher on the grass. You can't take it down to far, we bogged on some lawns with a high horse powered engine. We are going to try and discharge high wet lawns first and run a second shot over it with the mulch plug in at a higher deck level. That's the thing I like about the 30 it's easy to change from blowing to mulching. We could not do that with the walk behinds. Mow deck will help keep you mowing. You will still have some build up.
