    We bought a new Toro and I couldn't be happier with it. I've used Hondas since they came out years ago and they are great machines if you've got 1200 bucks to throw at one. The thing I like most about the Toro as opposed to the Honda is the weight. The Toro is super light, cuts just as smoooth as the Honda, and costs 600 less. Not to mention the speed is significantly faster than the Honda.

    I would agree with port city on the weight of a honda but the only way you are going to get a toro for half of a honda is if you buy there residential model not the commercial. I bought the a month ago and am very happy with it. Powerfull, excelent cut and mulches well bags excelent. I paid with extra blade and free tune up / oil change at end of season. that is the hydro 5.5 hp expensive one.
    Go with the 215 5hp 20lbs less and it was 899.00. toro wanted 949 and snapper wanted 899 with robins and honda 5.5 999. what ever you do don't try them out before you buy!
    Any ways I highly recomend the Honda.
