    Hello there, I'm writing from Scotland basicly because I can't seem to get much info from folks over here!
    I have not been in the maintenance game for long ( 2nd year) I want to be a little more productive with my time and thought about this mower.

    I've looked at 2nd hand Scags and new MTD 33" too.

    I see that the Exmark Metro 26 gets a hard time on this forum! I reckon the Toro is the same mower?

    It ticks a few boxes for me but not if it's not going to perform the way I want it to.

    Thanks for any advice you can give.:drinkup:

    I thinks its safe to say that it will be the same as the exmark 26" mower, which apparently was a big failure and is now discontinued, I also think that Toro model is also not available. I would look at the new 30" mowers. Also it think the biggest problem was that a 26" blade is just too large. Hope this helps, the exmark and toro 21" mowers are top notch, all the best.

    Yeah, just read a few more reviews! The grass here is often damp (to say the least!) also get alot of moss in the grass which takes a bit of grunt to get through. I get the feeling the 26 would be an expensive mistake. I'm sure we can still get it here for £1800. The Turfmaster is not available here. neither is the Bravo 25. hmmm,
    I have a Toro 21 (the commercial with Honda) It's good. maybe I should get The heavy duty with the Kawi engine and employ a lad to push my other one to get through the grass!

    We run 3 currently and have for the last 5 years. I wouldn't go back to a 21 ever. We also run the Ybravo 25's. Yes the exmark 26 had its problems initially but once you learn their quirks that are different than a 21 they are way more productive. We bag wet grass here in spring and fall and they do a decent job. The Bravo 25 does a better job in wet conditions.
    Currently since Exmark is not producing the 26's any longer we are going to their new 30. We will see how that pans out, I am sure there will be issues that need addressed but will be a great mower over all.
