I was at a dealer's pro day looking at Husqvarna and Toro hydro wb's for use on days when it's too sloppy out to put a Lazer Z on the turf and for smaller areas. So I'm not looking for max all out productivity, but I am picking about not having the mower wear me out. I have used T bar belt drives for years, and like them. However, I wanted to try a Hydro this time for ease of turning and backing out and handling slopes w/o having to manhandle it. The Toro rep at the pro day said I should avoid the T bar hydro, that it is too jumpy. Has anyone else had a problem with them being too jumpy? The Husky and Exmark hydros I've tried have seemed very jumpy to me themselves, but I know with time you get smoother. I really want to avoid pistol grips and constant squeezing to save my hands from giving me problems at my age. Should I also avoid the T bar hydro and just get another belt drive?
