This is my second Toro with the beautiful and rugged cast Aluminum deck. My friends and neighbors always confer with me prior to power equipment purchases due to my neurotic knowledge of the good stuff. Without a second quess, Toro Super Recyclers with cast deck are by far the best push mowers money can buy, period. Nothing fancy. I had a Sears Craftsman for about 3 hours before it was properly disposed of. We have a ordinance in my community on explosives, so I could not blow it up.
