    I have 2 - 21" Toro Personal Pace Recyclers (not commercial) . Thinking of getting 32" or 36'' walk behind belt drive. Encore looks like the best deal to me for the money. Does anyone have any input ? Or maybe I should just get a commercial 21" I'm assuming it would cut better & faster than the mowers I have now. I usually mow by myself. Every once in a while I'll get someone to help me.

    gravely 32" Wb is the best deal out there to me. They are built well and the prosteer is awesome. It will actually back up on its own in reverse, there are no other best drives that will do that.

    I have a 44" Toro WB belt drive with a T-Bar. It's great. I am in the market for a 32 or 36, but am not sure what I will be getting yet, I am holding out for a good used 36 hydro, but I could get another Toro t-bar belt and be perfectly happy. The t-bar is great, I highly recommend it. Whatever you do, don't get belt drive with pistol grips, you will end up with carpal tunnel syndrome. You can pick up used Toro 32 and 36 inchers for around $1000+ (approximately what you would spend on a new commercial 21") so they are a great deal. You will increase your productivity tremendously with a WB.

    The scag 32" belt drive is a good unit but might be a little pricey. YOu could pull yourself with it if you wanted to.

    No matter which one you get, make sure you have a dealer that can and will take care of you.
