    I have a Toro 36 proline w/b that has pistol grip steering(that I hate) and was wondering if it is possible to switch it to a t-bar steering system ,and if so how hard is it to do and how much would it cost to do it? Thanks for any help.

    If your Unit is a Hydro Leave it Pistol..T-Bar Sux on Hydros....Bad...Real Bad.

    If it's Belt...Trade it in for a Nice eXmark ECS equipped Hydro.
