    What is the priceline and engine on each unit?

    Other than that, I always lean towards the larger deck.

    I had to ask because Toro has been playing around with the Z500 and what it comes with. So it depends on the year, which shoppers seldom really know after looking at a machine. Like I think they cut down on power and features on the Z500 for 2007, etc...

    So same engine, but $900 more for the Toro with the extra features and larger deck?

    If that's the case, I think I would lean towards the Toro.
    There is no replacement for deck size and beefier construction.
