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??
