    This year I have been getting more smaller yards than last year and I'm thinking that the ZTR might become inconvenient to use on on the smaller properties if I get many more of them. I have been thinking about a 36" Toro with the T-bar controls and Tru Trak sulky. I haven't really heard much about the tru trak system but it looks like a very convenient system. Has anyone run a Toro with the tru trak before? And just for a ball-park figure what might I expect to pay for 17hp Hydro 36" Toro with the tru trak and T-bar controls?

    Thanks

    Belt drive or hydro? Toro tru trak is the best sulky made period! I have them for all my mowers, a little pricey but worth the cost.

    Hydro. Since you already have these mowers, about what would I expect to pay for the 36" tbar and tru trak?

    I've got a Toro 52"Walk-behind with Tru-Trac installed.Its a great type of sulky for the walk behind.It's very comfortable to ride on,but is very heavy in the up position.I've got the velky and the proslides and I like the Tru-Trac best.The toro is a great mower for flat areas with the t-bar controls,but you don't have as much control going down hills where you may want to be able to kind of hold back on the mower for more control.The t-bar controls are harder to control unless you are riding behind the mower because they are very sensitive its hard to not be jerky on the controls when walking.The Toro i have has a mulching type of deck with baffles installed but I removed so we could mow faster in the spring.The toro mowers seem to be light in the front when you install the Tru-trac when going up hills I had to install weight on the front of the deck frame.Its a great fast mower if you are mowing flat areas,but I'm located in the hills of N.C.I only use mine as a spare and have thought about selling it to get something more for the hills I have to mow here in the mountains.

    Search for some of my threads...I also have videos of the TruTrak on YouTube.

    The TruTrak is by far the best sulky made. The 36 would need about 4-5 weights installed to keep front end down...The standard Tbar may not be the best controls to use with the TruTrak, I would go for the T2 controls.

    The 40" T2 hydro floater is about $5850 and the TruTrak will set you back about $500-$550.
