    I'm hearing all the time of people using a Toro T bar on non Toro mowers. Is this possible and if so where can I get them for my Scag wb's?

    I asked last week when someone posted they had done this. Never heard a word. I would like to know, too!

    Edward Hedrick put one on his Lesco for about $250, but I haven't seen a picture of it yet.

    Took pictures today will get them processed andput on site.
    The local Toro dealer can supply new parts. Or look for a
    junk Toro. the older handles are better. the older ones
    have full radius bends later ones have mandrel bends. I made the console. but Toro also has one. The price was about $250. Less expensive than a Hydro.

    I know you guys love the t, and i've had one for 5 years or so. I gotta tell ya, the hustler is by far better, and an employee can make you money with it the first day, not in a week. The Hydro t took me a week to get good, and a few weeks to get really good. Dave

    I 've tried the hydro Toro seems to be jumpy, tried a hustler shortcut, wish their z ridr had the H bar. Easier
    to use than two levers

    I heard that the Toro dealers have some replacement valves for Toro hydros that will make them smoother to operate. Has anyone out there done this retro-fit, and was it worth it?
