    What are your thoughts/opinions on these mowers. I know it is the same company, but I had a dealer try to tell me his is better, he sells one but not the other. I want to know what (if any) are the differences. Are the transmissions the EXACT same? I know you change the gear in different places. What are some other differences? Just trying to form an opinion of my own based off information provided by people who have nothing to gain from my decision.

    According to my exmark dealer, "the only difference is badging. The eXmark is just a Proline Clone." :p

    Used to be that Toro's had plastic "kickers" on the underside of the deck for mulching and Exmarks did not. Don't know if that still holds true or not... Toro has changed their deck design a bit for the '06.

    Not much difference except in price. Get the toro.

    Buy from the dealer with the best service department. The salesman sells the first one and the service department sells the rest.
