    I can get a 2006 Toro Proline 21" for $799 or is it worth spending $200 dollars more for a new exmark metro 21" I am going to be using it for bagging and mulching. Thankyou

    Metro. It has better controls and no kickers under the deck to interfere with airflow. I have the metro and love it.

    if you are going to spend that kind of money, why would you even consider a 2yr old unit with who knows how many hours on it vs a brand new machine? go with the exmark, or for that matter, a new proline, which is a better machine.

    Proline if mulching ( assuming it's new)

    Good machines....but what are you using it for.
    If spot use, I wouldn't buy either one, too much $$ sunk into a 21" machine.
    If regular use, get the new one.

    well this would be used for regular use and not trim work because around here you do not need anything bigger than that. maybe a 32" would be ok but a 21" should work

    Hey you're in new orleans. I'm in kenner. If you need advice on mowers pm me. Also who is selling the 06 proline? You can get the 07 model exmark at bob's for $1050 and is worth it.
