    Minor changes to use use common parts from Exmark ZTRs.

    Pretty much the same. Unit is a little more refined.

    ExMark now has a hitch receiver mounted in the front of the riding aerator. Is that for future attachments?

    Cool....thanks David!

    Where is ExMark/Toro going to make the three aerators? Still in Kentucky? Or somewhere else?

    Prices went up some but very little for some but others got better pricing.

    Contact your dealer, and if you cut grass ask about discount, fleet pricing, etc...

    If you buy mowers and use renovation products you will be very happy.

    Little changes in price except dealer will stock them now as well as parts in Toro and Exmark dealers. Can't beat that.

    It should be faster than the Lawn Solutions model. The transmission cable was not setup correctly by the local dealer.

    It is desgined to be 1 mph faster than the similar LS model.
