    I'm in the market for a used walk behind and am trying to decide between a Toro T bar and an Exmark Metro. There are two Metro's I'm considering, one with pistol grips (newer model) and one with ECS controls from 2004. Not sure on the year of the Toro yet, but looks clean and fairly new. All are for sale for 1400. What would you recommend? Thanks!

    Toro and Exmark are the same machine (other than some difference in the decks.)I prefer ECS controls over pistol grips.

    If you are getting a used walkbehind, why not a hydro unit? Price should be much different.

    Hydro or belt drive you have the same choice of controls. Pistol grips or ECS.
    I like the T-bar myself. Some refer to ECS at T-bar.I think of them as a little different.
