    I

    Is it pistol or T bar?, generally a gear 36" walk runs you about $2000-$2600 us dollars (new). A used good cond can fall from $600 to $1500.
    A good hydro you add about 1 k into it.

    I got my new 2005 Toro Proline 36" pistol grip,belt drive, WB mower with a 13 HP Kawi V-Twin engine out the door with the Grass Gobbler bagger for $2,800 (U.S.). I love it! It gives a fantastic quality of cut and stripe! A hydro mower would be about $1k more.

    I was interested in this unit also but have been hearing some bad feedback on same thing. I would be interested in feedback from anybody using the unit 6 hrs + a day.

    I use mine about 4hrs. per day, and I don't really get fatigued. I demoed the t-bar and the Exmark ECS, but I didn't really like the way they felt. I like the pistol grips because they are easy to use, and I don't get tired using them. I suppose the type of grips on a mower are really a matter of personal preference.

    I am currently cutting right at 5.5 hrs for 3 days a week with my pistol grips on my toro. I find that the first part of the year I tend to be sore in the forearms for about 2 weeks. Although the first 2 weeks of the main season everything is sore.
    Tried the t bar but on hydro I didn't like it as well as the pistol. Exmark didn't have the ECS out yet when I bought so I still have not tried it.
    If interested I might be interested in selling my 36". I am looking at upgrading to a 48.

    Pistol sucks, I can't see how people cutting 30-40 accounts with pistol WB, even hydro system with pistol, no way jose!
    Get ECS or Quad bar by Stander, or H bar.
