    I own a 21 exmark and the metal deck portion of it looks to be the same deck as my exmark except for the front wheel adjustment. New and improved or just going to one manufactoring line to increase profits

    Is the exmark the same design as the toro or are they completely different? Price difference?

    Sounds like the same as the 30".

    Only one unit has the one speed, the other four have a three speed. Also I have no idea why people complain about the one speed in the first place, both of my Exmarks have a one speed and it works just fine.

    I think that the tranny gear issue is a personnal thing as I prefer a single. Both my 21 and 30 are single while my 26 is a three speed. I don't dislike the 3speed but i don't prefer it. If your running along and hit a spot that requires a different speed you don't have to take time to mess with gearing.

    can that one speed pull you up a long hill on a 95 deg day? can it crawl at a slow pace to cut down a severely over grown yard? still work fine?

    I have had one for two years, and the other one year, and have had no issues. And yes, their transmissions have pulled me up hills and even some steep ditching. They did get caught in mud because of the poor ground and the rain last year. That said my Turf Tracer 48 did as well and that thing will haul.

    Also, I was amazed how my Commercial 21s and plow through the thick stuff. I have a couple of bad yards that grow at a very rapid rate and it handled it. The only issue the design has is that they lack a side or rear discharge chute. Definitely wish they would do something like what Honda does with the rear discharge chute.
