    You will probaly be able to find a nice Toro in that price range. Are you looking for a Hydro or Belt drive mower ? What is your dealer options ?

    If your looking for a belt drive then I would have to recomend a Toro with a t-bar controls. If your looking at a hydro then I would say spend a lil more and get a Huster or find a slightly used Hustler.

    Toro's commercial deck and homeowner decks are very different. I have to really recomend a Hydro walk there alot more effecient and takes less of a toll on you at the end of a day. Take a look at lesco's walkbehinds.

    I would stay away from pistol grip and exmark ECS controls if at all possible.

    If you can demo one, Try the gravely 15/48. But please demo it first.

    I do not think i can afford a hydro, they are simply too expensive, and i will take the gravely into concideration.

    You can purchase a belt drive 48 inch BoB-Cat for about $3,000 brand new here in Maryland. Toro 44 inch $3300 with T-Bar.

    eXmark metro 48/15 w/ kawi motor with grass gobbler, velke and mulch kit for $3200 here. Of course you can just get the mower for around $2800 ECS controls are the best controls EVER!
