    Hello I'm trying to decide on a Toro 36" walk-behind or a John Deere 36". Which would be the better choice?.

    Well JD doesn't make a hydro in the 36 so if your wanting a hydro rule JD out. Depends on your dealer to.

    Toro for sure, the new T2 is built like a tank...JD cant even come close to being built that tough.

    You won't regret it I bought a 36 hydro fixed deck with pistol grips and love it.

    Both are great mowers but Deere replacement parts are a little on the steep side....

    A well built machine is a well built machine yet without dealer support you may end up sucking wind when repairs are needed. A point to consider, all machines will require repair, either warranty or not, at some point - and a supportive dealer makes ALL of the difference.
    Go with the dealer, not the machine.

    Get a Quick 36...save money...and get an awesome machine. But thats just me.
