    my experience, same as the ariens 911 series that have been tried and true , for almost 15 years now.

    Axle with bearing wheels, rolled under lip, similar to the older snapper design. Probably the best bagging 21 on the market and has been for years. Handles are solid and adjustable.

    Well worth the money in my opinion.

    We use the Ariens 911 series and have for some years now and we cut 70 lawns a week. They run some where between $600.00 and $700.00 depending on where you get them. For parts I go to www.mowpart.com and they ship from their warehouse or the Ariens factory.

    If you go with toro get the commercial not the pt21.

    I think the PT21 looks intriguing with the pers. pace tranny.
    I would think long and hard before buying the Toro Proline, is priced very high (well over $1K), perhaps overpriced for a 21".

    The personal pace tranny isn't made for a commercial mower. The proline is much better and will outlast and perforrm better without all the repairs the pt21 would need within a year.

    I priced the Gravely,$899 for the Kawasaki and &1200 for the Honda retail.I know i can get a better price.All things considered the Gravely with the Kawasaki seems like the way to go.
