    I know i did the searches but today I talked extensively with an exmark dealer and LCO. He told me the mowers may be the same as in engines, frames, pumps etc. but the deck will blow away any TORO deck anyday which decreases his mowing time.

    I have toro & nearest EXMARK dealer is about 75 miles away. So i get toro's but I have also never ran an exmark and just wondering if there is that big of difference b/t the 2 mowers? He was comparing an 05/06 model with the 52 deck. He also said there bagger system is far better than the DFS bagger by TORO??

    toro owns exmark so there wont be that much of a differance. i have a toro cut a house next door to a guy with an exmark neither of us can tell a difference both do a good job

    2005 Toro would have different (old) style deck I believe.

    We picked up a 62 house complex that requires bagging certain areas during the Spring growth spurt. We charge the regular mowing price plus $10.00 per 40 gal trash bag. It usually doubles the price of the mowing. With 2 Standers on the property it doesn't take that much longer using Accelorator baggers.

    What does this have to do with the Toro/Exmark question? Did you post this in the wrong place? Otherwise, I'm lost...

    the turbo force deck is excellent... while i honestly have no experience with the exmark.... if you search here on the toro turboforce deck you will find alot of high opinions about it...

    Thats just it. I searched and what you say is correct. But this guy, as nice as he was, kept saying no comparsion to TORO deck. So I just thought I would ask the "EXPERTS" in the business.

    The Toro Proline and Exmark belt drive WB'S are EXACTLY the same. The deck on my 36" Toro Proline WB is exactly the same as the deck on my friends Exmark WB. :blob4:
