Well, I'm thinking about a ZTR for next year. Stopped at a dealer today. They had Toro, Exmark, Snapper, Exmark, Stealth, and Walker. They didn't have any Lazer Z's in stock so I checked out the Toro's and the Walker. I liked the controls on the Walkers because they required little effort to move them. I also liked the speed control lever. I only mulch so thought that the Walker would be a good choice but they're so expensive and I don't know how well they mulch. In this case, Toro has a bagger and mulcher in one deck and has those nice controls between your legs. But the smaller Z's are less expensive. What would be the best choice financialy and productively? Info appreciated.
