    Need a WB that fits 36" gates. (almost all are 35.5"-36") So it looks like the 32" deck is the right choice.

    Could you give me a comparison between the Exmark and Toro 32" products?

    1) Controls- I see Toro has options. Can the Exmark 32" be upgraded to there newer control set with a kit later on? Do you think pistol grips are adequate on this size machine?

    2) Reliability

    3) Dealer Support

    4) Price

    I know this is an Exmark site but I'm sure each machine has subtle advantages and I'd sure appreciate any honest info.

    Anything else I haven't asked about would be appreciated, also. I'm trying to learn as much as possible.

    John 99 2007,

    Unfortunately, I'm not sure how much help I can be, but here goes:

    1. Controls
    -Our 32" Metro is only available w/ our traditional pistol grip controls. To
    my knowledge, there is not an ECS upgrade kit available. I think you'll
    find that the pistol grips work well.
    2. Reliability:
    -I would recommend that you seek out, and ask current Exmark and
    Toro users to get their feedback.
    3. Dealer Support:
    -Same as #2
    4. Price:
    -M15KA322P = $2,599
    -Toro 32" = ??

    I would strongly recommend that you make a visit to your local dealer. They will be able to answer your questions w/ greater accuracy. Good luck, and let me know what you find out!
