    I own a toro 52 inch water cooled Kaw. There is not a thing wrong with this set up. The problem that I have is that when the grass is really kicking the SFS deck will not mulch. So if you want to mulch with a toro ztr in Florida I would look elsewere. I also have a 44 inch walk behind that will mulch fine.This is the second ztr that I have owned from Toro,they bought back the first for the same reason.

    I would also like to add that if you are going to cut bahia with a stamped deck look out. You will eat the deck up in a year or two.

    We use the toro ztr with 62in.decks.We use the atomic blades with them and you still have run VERY sharp blades to cut bahai.Also don`t even think of mulching with these decks,that requires double cutting.Like Lynn said,the 44in. wb does great.Go figure.
