    Anyone used this mower? I was talking to a dealer on the phone and they say it can go through a 36" gate? I was looking at it on the toro website and the deck doesnt look any different than other mowers?

    Come on man, help us out a little and do some thinking.

    Just below is the mower you're talking about, guys try not to spoil it
    because I want you to tell me if this will fit through a 36" gate:

    Toro.com > Commercial/Contractor > Landscape Contractor > Mid-Size Walk-Behinds > Fixed Deck Hydro Drive >
    Model 30986 > 15 HP Kawasaki® OHV V-Twin engine with 40" TURBO FORCE cutting technology deck.

    That is a direct quote, here is an even more direct link:
    http://toro.com/professional/lce/midsize/tf_fixedhydro/30986.html

    And if you still can't tell me, why don't younot print this and show it to your dealer and see what he has to say.

    If you go in the gate at an angle it might fit. The deck may be wider, but the front to rear depth might allow enough clearance. Problem is enough room on both sides of the gate to "hook" it around the gate posts.
