    I have 3 toro proline 44 wb mowers with trac vacs. Any one interested in 1 or 2 let me know!

    Just wondering though if I was to replace one wb, would I be better off with another 44wb or go to a 44 z?

    These 44wb are used on yards where people want a smaller unit on them, or the yard is just small for a 52 or 60 z. Every yard we do gets bagged.

    If you bag every yard have you thought about a Walker with a 42in bagging deck.

    If you already have a couple walkbehinds, then I would get a Z. They will be faster than a walkbehind in some situations. I couldn't see not owning both a Z and a walkbehind in this business.

    Yes, we have 3 Z's, all Toro with 52 deck and DFS baggers. We also have a front mount toro with a rear bagger, and 10 jd Wb with all baggers. Tell me more about the walker?

    They are all belt drive units. They have between 850 - 1300 hours on them. They all have 15 hp kohlers. They are all T-Bar designs. They all have trac vac bagging systems on them. (Could remove if not interested) The trac vacs are 5 or 5.5 hp kohlers as well. They all run good - just thinking of upgrading some to either new wb or a small z model. PM me with any other questions. Thanks!

    Shoot me an email @ mjfriel@msn.com; as of yet I cannot PM due to the 25 post rule. I have been onsite for a couple months and just realized I need to hit the 25 for situations like this.
