    I started my lawn care business last summer and have been adding equipment ever since. I recently purchased a used (with low hours) Toro Proline 37 WB w/ T-Bar and floating deck. I love it. It starts on the first crank and mows like a champ. I see a lot of posts and members talking about Exmarks, Scags, JD's, etc. but I haven't seen anyone talk about Toro products. Am I out of the loop? Are you guys all driving Cadillac's and I'm in a AMC Gremlin?

    I think anything with the new turbo force deck is great..... I am not a fan of the old sfs decks though.. The proline fixed decks are a nice machine..... The SFS decks are fine but in my opinion the new turbo decks are a huge difference....

    Picked up a used Toro hydro last Oct. Has a 44' SFS deck. I'm pleased with the cut and I can't believe how much easier it is to use than my old belt drive 36''. Toro's O.K. by me !

    I have a Toro 32" belt wb. Nothing fancy but it does the job and its dependable. Only thing about Toro is that in my area there's only one Toro dealer and they will screw you bigtime (i.e. they quoted be $379 + tax for a new transmission - I bought the same exact transmission for $203 delivered to my door). I don't go there unless I have to.

    The only problem I have with Toro is that it isn't a Hustler :nono:
