Toro SS5000 With Kawi Engine

So i was at Home Depot today, and of course i went over and looked at the mowers the first thing when i walked in the door. I noticed Toro makes a 50" cut with a kawi engine for 3k. It's the timecutter series and most of the other ones have Kholer Engines in them. What are you thoughts on this machine?

Last years or before model, as the 2014 models should come standard with the foot assist height of cut (deck lift). Fine for a residential user with 1-2 acres. But why would you be looking at a department store when the same mower from an independent dealer is the same "promo" price?

Well i haven't really been looking at it. I was in the Home Depot for other stuff and the fact it had a Kawi engine it caught my eye. Hopefully by next year i can get some lawns where i need a ZTR mower, and i wasn't sure if this was well suited for a lawn service. Just wanted to get others opinions on it.

If you are looking at the Timecutters check out the MX series they have welded decks with 42 and 50".
