    Try posting this in the Commercial Lawn Mowing section, this is for Commercial Landscaping like plant installs.

    I would say go with the the z440 it can do 8.3 MPH.

    Good Luck!

    There is a reason why they don't make the z350 anymore.

    I'd buy the ToroZ440 2005 (New) With Vac Bagging System 23HP for $8,700
    ....more versatile.

    I have the Z449 (52" with Kawasaki 19hp). I dont know anything about the vac system...but the prices you show are inline with what I paid. Have not heard much good about the 350 series....I would pass on it if I were you.

    If you are going to bag or mulch all the time, then a dedicated unit like the Z 350 is probably going to serve you better.

    I believe the Z 350 was a 25hp...
    $6,700 ain't bad for it at all because when I looked at them they were 10k.
    I'm thinking the dealer must have just had trouble moving it. See below...

    Most look to Walker for that type of mower, but the funny thing is all the Z 350 owners I talked to switched to them from the Walkers and are happier. One did mention he wished they had all the attachments Walker has though.
