    I have a toro z and I kick my self every day for not going with a Exmark. From talking to many people including exmark, the mowers are the same/ but the decks are different. My toro is a great mower, but its still not as good as a comparable exmark.

    Does anyone know for sure if the roll bar is easily REMOVED from the Toro or Exmarks?

    If you remove the ROPS you will have absolutely no recourse against the manufacturer in case of any liability issues due to the fact that you altered their machine..

    Just something to keep in mind as we all know..stuff does happen!!

    anyone know if the new deck on the toro z rider deck cuts any better than the exmark lazer's ultra cut? I like the toro deck height adjuster better, as well as the suspension seat adjuster. I also like it that the toro has a jack and rubber discharge chute. The toro is a couple hundred $ cheaper.

    Any reason why I should get the exmark over the toro besides dealer support?
