    I sure hope so. I think the Exmark version is my choice.

    Well internally the transmission could be different but I didn't see any indication of that but I will take your word for it.

    The deck...if you saw them side by side there isn't a noticeable difference.

    GMLC you said the commercial version is 13 gauge...what's the residential one?

    Like I said they look exactly the same. I'll take pics and post if any wants...

    Looks like the deck is 12 gauge on the timemaster? Which would actually be a hair thicker!(so I apologize). The trans on the timemaster is the personal pace but not on the turfmaster. The Turfmaster weighs 35 lbs more so the skid plates must be some of that.

    No worries...like I said I couldn't notice any difference.

    for only 35lbs difference it sure feels heavier than that.

    LOL GMLC...must be the mobile device.

    Looks like you've been studying these 2 for a while. What's the biggest difference between the 2 transmissions?

    The internal clutches are suppose to be heavy duty. Also uses a bail for variable speed vs the hole handle moving on the personal pace.
