    i went with the emark, got it yesterday, was $1800. out the door, was able to put it to the test today, we did 14 yards with it and i'm really happy. my walker is down for some maintance so i used the 30 only today and it did a great job- started bagging a couple yards and it left a real nice clean cut, then decided to go at the rest mulching and it did a great job, smaller clippings than mulching with the 21 proline, real nice cut. my helper cuts all small backyards with the 21- we were saving alot of time with the 30 on every yard. don't think the 21 is gonna see much action anymore.

    I just bought the Turfmaster mower and noticed this annoying tapping against the deck from the belt when you engage the blades, I am quite annoyed the dealer didn't tell me about this before i bought the mower, he told me this is normal for this mower and when the belts break in and cables he would be able to adjust it so the noise goes away...did you have this problem and did they fix it?

    Yes very annoying, however doesn't affect the performance and the fact it mows way faster than a 21. Have been running our mower for over 2 months and have over 100 hours on it and it is still the same. Always wondered if I took the plastic housing off if it would stop, or lessen. Just think of it as our diesel mower!!!:hammerhead:

    No problems as of yet. I would like to see the numbers of sales exmark compared to the toro. That could make a big difference if exmark is selling 10 times what toro sells of the 30 you would hear more complaints out of the exmark.

    My toro commercial 30s transmission cable snapped.. It's been in the shop for over a week. And the transmission itself needed adjustment. Was running super slow and wouldn't go up hills.

    Adjust your cable on the left hand side. Improves a bunch. As for snapping the cable??? where at? drive or clutch cable?

    Clutch cable right at the control bail. Luckily it is under warranty but doesn't help the pain in the ass of dropping it off at dealer and not having it for 2 weeks.

    Need a better dealer unless it takes 2 weeks to get the part. That simple of a fix I would demand it done that day or no more buying equipment and also report to toro.
