    It better be damn near perfect for $1500. Thing looks like a tank though!

    Mine was $1175 back in Feb. They discounted it quite a bit since I was the first one to purchase. Their advertised selling price is $1295. Paid $875 for a 21" zone start, they sell it for $995.

    Yes they are built stout.

    Do you notice any difference in cut quality between the 21 vs 25? Could.you get away with just running the 25 Ybravo and forget the 21?

    No and no.

    I can't tell the difference in cut quality.

    We mow 2 apartment complexes with some steep very narrow ditches, and 3 hoa's with long narrow retaining walls that a mower has to be lifted up on to mow that the 21 gets used on.

    Any difference in wet grass bagging performance between the 21 and 25...?

    I'm in NE TX. On the bermuda and st augustine grasses I would say they are pretty close with a slight edge to the 21. We mostly just bag st augustine.
    Both mowers bag with no clogging, and pack the bag full.

    I haven't tried any aftermarket blades or the high vent bag. I will give them a try next season based off your great review of the Bravo 25.

    Toro Commercial- Too expensive, but I love it. Hard to beat!

    far too many are left out to be a real survey - and all mowers should be "commercial"
