And I say that would be almost impossible. I am not going to even try to keep up with a Honda Hydrostatic at full speed. The Toro might be faster but you would have to run pretty fast if so. In the 10 or so years that I have mowed behind the Honda I have never had to use the fastest speed. Keep in mind the speed is adjustable to your walking speed so that you don't have to adjust to the mower speed. Toro does have a mower that is infinitely adjustable but is a mechanical system and my dealer does not believe is as reliable as the Honda. He sells both. I have two Hondas and have never had either the engine or transmission to fail on either one. I do agree that Lawnboy and Toro make great equipment but just believe the Honda is a little better.Originally posted by OU812
Toro or Exmark with BBC and Kawasaki engine, the best!!
I know one of the local guys who used to use Honda (hydro). The next year he went to Toro he liked the Toro better than the Honda because it was faster.I have used snapper and Toro and I prefer the Toro also.
