    I am looking for zero turn mower with a 48"-52" deck and a kawi engine for my yard. I am in the market for a low hour (a few hundred) commercial machine that is only a few years old. I have good dealer support for Scag, Walker, Hustler, Exmark, Bobcat, and Grasshopper in my area. Hopefully I can score a gently used commercial mower rather than paying full boat for a high end "estate" unit. I am hoping to spend around $5,000, but can go a little higher for the right deal.

    Anyone have one they want to sell? I am in central Pennsylvania.

    Thanks - this forum and site have been a great resource!

    Garmel and meets1 - thanks for the reply. I hadn't really considered TORO because i assumed they were not as rugged as the brands that sell more commercial mowers. Of course, I am just learning as I go here so if anyone has any input I would love to hear about it. HOw does the TORO Commercial compare to the other brands i mentioned?

    Toro is just as good (if not better) than the other brands you mentioned. I ran Toro ZTRs for a couple years and they were fantastic, only reason I sold them was because the local dealer sucked.

    They are very reliable, engineered well, and are rugged.

    I can honestly say that Toro ZTRs with the Turbo Force deck are one of the best mowers available.

    Hey there - I run all toro and exmark. Can't tell much of a difference but I have had them all and I just really like those two brands.

    We run JD and Toro and the Toro Zero holds it's own with the JD. We were pleasantly surprised, but I must admit that JD is our main equipment and we are not planning on changing. By the way we run 7's and 9 series JD, nt 8's.
    8's was when we tried Toro!
