I am ready to buy my first WB. I have been looking at the Exmark and Toro 48 hydros.I have also been thinking of fixed or floating decks.I had a local dealer give me a quote on both.The Exmark metro has ECS controls, elec start, floating deck, and a 17 hp kaw eng. He told me for the unit,1 wheel sulky and taxes it would go for 5806,00. For the Toro proline it was 15 hp, fixed deck and for the unit, taxes, and sulky he gave me a quote of 4323.00. He stated that both of these were deals and from what original price was on the units it was from 400 to 700 dollar mark down in price and installation of the sulky for free. Now for the questions ? I know they are the same company but which if any of the two brands are better? Should I go for the floating deck or fixed ? Are these both good deals or not. I already service 22 clients with some hills and a few big yards, and want to grow, am I thinking to big with the 48 hydro or should I think about the 36 hydro or maybe a 48 belt drive ?I know I am asking alot of questions but I just want to make the best choice as possible and I know there is alot of experience on this site to help. Thanks !
