    I have the t-bar on my wb, and love it. I have not seen any other with a t-bar. Exmark and Cub Cadet/Lesco offer something other than pistol grip, if that is what you are looking for. I did see a picture awhile back on lawnsite from someone who fabricated the t-bar on another machine.

    Toro would be the only one with the T-bar. Other manf. have different systems that try to match it with varying degrees of success. Push on the bar and go forward, push harder on one side and change direction. To stop, stop pushing on it, simple. ON gear drive pull back and you brake, or push on one side and pull on the other to turn, on hydro drive pulling back makes it go in reverse. A very easy to use systemthat is easy on the hands and arms. Stay away from pistol grips.

    I have the z controls on my Bunton. Very smooth, NO effort.
