    I was just wondering everyones thoughts on these two machines. I have tested the deere and really like it but the bagger leaves a lot to be desired. It handles great. I have not tried the toro yet but it will come with a 25hp kawi instead of the 23 kawi on the deere. The toro baggers don't even compare to the deere. I like the wide tires on the deere better and the deck seems a little better. The one on the toro is not the new one with the baffle. As far as price they are both coming in pretty am I looking for expensive parts for the deere and durability on the deere? In my area I don't see many guys running the deere but the toro is all over.

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    Don't buy the toro if it is the SFS deck. Compare a new toro with the Turbo Force deck (baffles) with that deere and then make your decision.

    Make sure the Deere has the 7 iron 2 deck. The old 7 irons are wonderful but the new 7 Iron 2 decks are really wonderful.
