I went down to my local toro/exmark dealer to look at some mowers. The 2 im intersted in are the toro 22176 kawi engine and non blade brake for 1199 and the exmark metro 21 mksa21 kawi engine and non bladebrake for 1099. They had neither in stock. From my reading on here and other forums, my understanding is it that they are the same mower,("warranty" according to dealer) except the toro has the kickers under the deck and the accellerator on the blade. So is the toro worth the extra 100 or should i just pocket the extra 100 and get the exmark. My yard is fairly steep so im going with the kawi, gone through too many cheap mowers, i plan to mulch most of the time but will be bagging some in early spring and fall leaves.
