    I have no facts to support it, but yes I do expect a 60" walkbehind with a Turbo Force deck. Pretty much the Toro version of the big Turf Tracers.

    Anyone know if Toro is going to have a 36 inch with a turboforce? We currently use Exmark mowers .Our dealer is leaving Exmark and is going to start selling Toro next spring.

    He is mucho great person, bends over backwards to help us and if Toro comes up to Exmark standards ,we are going Toro next spring.

    I hope they come out with a 60" turbo force deck with a 23Hp motor that would be awesome..

    Bill,

    Unless you are using floating 36's they are the same mower pretty much anyways, deck included.
    With a dealer like that, I believe I would stay loyal and jump ship with him.

    It is cheaper to operate, in addition to being more durable than Z (those mechanical model), WB won't break down easily. If you are good at sulky and know how to operate, it is as good and effective as but not better than a Z. It is more versatile than any other cutting machine. One thing for sure, you don't have big debt like owning a Z. There are ton of used WB available in market with so attractive price that you can get your lawn biz started overnight.
