    I have to get throught these 36" fence gates and would like something faster than my 21" push mower.
    Do you think a sub compact ZTR like the toro 340 would be a better choice than a walk behind?:confused:
    Do anyone used one of those on a regular basis?
    Pro's / Con's ?
    Thanks much for your thoughts on this

    Are you wanting to bag always? or mulch and side discharge? If you are bagging the Walker is the way to go. I have a 36" GHS and love it for small lawns and fenced backyards! If you are wanting to mulch, the walker has NO 36" mulching deck available, only a side discharge. For the price you would probably be better off with the 34" toro if you are looking to not bag.

    Thanks for the advise.
    I thought I would use my 21" push mower to Bag if needed (it is self propelled and can cut pretty fast when bagging) and the compact ZTR to mulch.
    What is the easier to use in small yards, walker or ZTR?
