I love my Toro GS. It is so much faster and easier to turn than my WB. It is also a much more comfortable ride. I thought rutting would be an issue, but it is not. With the wide tires, it is not any worse than my WB. After mowing most of my yards with it, there is only one thing my WB has an advantage over the GS, hills. The GS does handle most of the hills well, but there are some that are simply too much for it. Because of this I find myself doing a little more trim work with a pushmower on some properties.
