    :confused: I would like to purchase a new 36" mower. I haven't used either so I am looking for a suggestion. The two I am deciding between are the Gravely GR1336FX and the Toro 30694. Both units are 36", gear drive, fixed deck. They have similar specs, both having Kawasaki engines. I also like to mulch occasionally and am wondering which unit might work better as a mulcher with the mulching attachment. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you in advance,

    Joel

    All depends upon dealer support. Both units are good commercial units so go with the better dealer.

    Frotis - where have you seen the Toro 40" hydro for $3400. I was getting quotes of $3000 - $3500 for the 36" gear drive

    There is a dealer on here who has them for that price: http://www.lawnsite.com/showthread.php?t=279280

    I was wrong, the price is $3695.00

    Also search eBay for "Toro 40 hydro" there is an authorized dealer on there who sells them around the same price. It just shows up marked up some dealers are.

    I was looking a couple months back for one, but decided to wait until next year.
