    I am replacing 4 Toro 21" commercial mowers tomorrow. Mine are WELL used and starting to lose power. I have considered buying 4 new shortblocks for a cheaper price as well.

    Although I like the Toro, I am considering something new this time. What do you guys like for trim mowers? I have around $ 3600.00 to put into mower upgrades this season.

    Trim mowers -- SNAPPER SNAPPER SNAPPER!! Great handling and performance at a decent price. The homeowner versions are even great for commercial use. You won't believe how much better they are than a Toro.

    Mechanic I use just starting selling toro. Checked out the proline he had just put together with the 6.5 on it. I could not believe how quite and fast the thing was. Couldn't cut grass with it but if I needed one for the price of $850 I think that would be my choice.
