We have the exact one you are talking about, but we mostly bag with it. The mower is great. The 5000 series would be a little better in some areas, but overall they are pretty close. It stripes about average - if you want wicked stripes, I'd get the kit. Engine has PLENTY of power but she IS thirsty too. Doesn't clump unless you might mow in rain?? Hills no problem - all about the operator - some skill and experience, I can put that puppy up a bank so steep it would shock you. Overall very happy with it - next mower will be a 5000 but no complaints. Get the suspension seat tho!!!! We have 3 toro zeros and love em.
