I got a barely used toro 52" hydro about a while back, and I just though man this is the greatest thing every, I though it was better than my scags. Well about a month later now, and the cut is still great, but I have now used it on nearly all my accounts, and that things hydro drive system is the weakest I've ever used, you can't ride the sulkie up more than a slight incline, and it seems to jerky, I am just wondering is this just a toro. granted I am used to the power of my scag wb, its 21HP, and the toro is 17HP. but man, I have had other 17HP machines before and they always pulled just fine. I am seriously thinking of trading for a exmark 52" TTHP 19HP.
