    My local dealer quoted me a price of $ 3500 bucks for a w/b 36 inch floating deck mower. It also had t grips. Is this a good pricel or should i look else where? I am also looking at a exmark w/b. Would it be better to pay a little more for the exmark or stay with the toro?

    Seems high to me. I did not look at floating decks though.

    $3500 is too high. Look at some other dealers and try to find a lower price.

    Just bought tore 36in walkbehind belt drive fixed deck for 2289.00 I also bought the toro sulky. Big mistake. very expensive 499.99 and everytime I give it gas the front wheels come off the ground and I only weight 185 lbs. I cant keep the front wheels on the ground. so 3500.00 is way to high

    Don't know where you are located in TX, but I got one last year at the store in Collyville TX for 3100 out the door with the mulch kit installed. Same exact machine.

    Looking back, and my next machine will probably be a 36" hydro floater. I do like this unit lots though! Let me know if you have any specific questions about it, as I have run it for a year.

    Last year I purchased in January a 36" hydro fixed deck with mulch kit for 3600 15hp kawi.
    I think it is way to high for a gear driven.
