    Been using toro, but we keep tending to break decks, and with them being Magnesium decks, we can't weld them, and replacement is $$$$$

    Breaking Toro decks? Do you park your Z on them or? Good luck finding a tougher deck.

    Oh yeah, Mag can be welded. Need a Tig.

    Dad always said mowers were like kids. Ya gotta strap em down when they're traveling, or the big ones beat up the little ones.;)

    I have a really old Honda bagger. Rebuilt carb and she keeps on tickin'. One pull start. Cuts sweet. Can't beat it. :clapping:

    BTW, Toro 22176. Can't hardly break em with a hammer.

    My guess is either they HATE using the 21" and are trying to send a message. Or they're bouncing a 1000+ lb. Z onto them. You've actually broke more than one?
