    Is there? From what I have seen they seem similar in design. They seem to be built by the same company, with the exceptions of some components. I have never seen two side by side, or owned one so I really have no idea.

    Thanks,

    Pablo

    The decks are different, the discharge chutes are different and on walk behinds the controls are different.

    I asked myself the same question years ago. There is a huge difference.






    Toro offers 0% financing. Exmark does not. I have all toro.

    Is there any difference in the operation of the machine? Is the cut quality the same? If both were price close together what would you prefer?

    Thanks

    Toro hands down. Side by side the Toro was a no brainier for the same money, elec start, rubber chute, adjustable baffle on deck, heavier frame and casters and better controls.

    Exmark has 0% for 24 months through ge. And 48 months at 0$ through Sheffield, who I can't stand for the life of me.

    I've had both. My toro cut like crap. My exmarks did great. I demoed the new exmarks only to be disapointed.
