I currently have 2 Toro 52" diesels I am selling. I love the diesel and have seen the benefits that others are scarred to try them out or just don't want to fork out the extra amount. I am selling a) because I want 60" decks b) the diesels are much heavier and if it rained over night, your not getting out at 7am to start mowing, gotta wait until about 8ish until the sun gets above the trees because the diesel will just flatten the grass to the ground and when the ground is soft like that they will tear the turf up.
I am planning on buying (2) Toro G3 60" with 29hp kawi engines. The reason I am selling the mowers is because I was new into the business and didn't think I needed a 60" so I bought the 52's with no ZTR experience.
I am THINKING of buying 1 G3 60" and 1 diesel 60". I only have problems with the diesels when these few instances occur due to weight. There are accounts where the diesel and the torque come in handy, and ofcourse it uses 75% less fuel.
So I know I am switching to atleast (1) gas model, but any one run a setup with both gas and diesel for these purposes? Did it work out?
