    I know everyone has there favorites, but give me some ideas of some I should look at. I'm interested in the Toro 36", but I'm still undecided. Any problems out of the ordinary from any certain models or anything. I need some help.
    Thanks everyone.

    Avoid Toro New Design Walks Like the Plague...the ones w/vertical height adjusts...in fact Avoid "Classic" SFS decked Toro Walks as Well.

    Toro Screwed me on "New Design" Walks & I had to add 4 Gage Wheels @ the rear....Very Badly Designed carrier frame/deck Configuration.

    We've got an eXmark metro 36". Great mower.

    Dependable, awesome cut, great customer service.

    Someone told me that Toro and Exmark are the same, is that true? If so, what really would be the difference?

    Toro and Exmark are just about the same. I dont remember who makes which one. I THINK that toro owns exmark, but again, im not sure. I would reccomend buying Bob-cat, in my opinion, they are the best. They are the only ones that i know of to offer the larger size rear tires on their belt drive walkbehinds. I wouldnt buy anything different.

    The Walks are Not Even Close to being the Same!

    Different deck...Different carrier frame...Different controls...

    Only the fiXed deck Pistol Grip units are identical...
