36" 'er

Who makes the best 36" wb out of Snapper, Deere, and Toro. I would prefer one of these because of local dealer support. I need something bigger than my dixon, but cant afford another ZTR. Need to have a grass catcher. Money is a factor. Also, can they all pull the trailer-type-deals to ride on?

Thanks For Your Help

I would recommend the Toro. You need to decide if you want a hydro drive or a belt drive. The hydro is going to be about $800 or so more than the belt. The hydro will be easier to use and you will not have to worry about belts slipping when it is wet. The belts are cheaper to repair but you have to replace the drive belts often and hydro belts often, take more effort to steer and belts slip when wet or early morning dew. We have a Toro 37in midsize belt that is 6yrs old, if you have the money get the hydro.
