    Over the past year my lawn mowing business has grown exponentially and consequently I am considering purchasing either a toro or exmark walk-behind to replace a few superannuated riders. Do you guys prefer one over the other? Right now I am leaning towards an exmark.

    get the exmark it will last you much longer then the toro and it leaves a nicer cut

    Get a 52" or 48" TTHP with 19 kawi, it is truely awesome machine, short and very nimble to operate plus beautiful cut, but I will get 52" over 48" any day due to its productivity, trim side, and hill holding. Toro walk? Most of guys in my area sold Toro walks for a Z, barely see one that stay as main mower. You can't help thinking of an ECS system if you want to use hydro WB as your main, easy to adjust and operate.
    I have '01 52" TTHP

    exmark I still have my first one and its in use every work day
    36 metro --- paid $2100 total a bargain ! the thing must be 11- 12 yrs old and almost no down time :) but I would buy the 48 .
