    1998 Toro 44" deck, Hydro, 15hp Kohler.
    Virtually bulletproof, easy to run with t-bar. Easy to slide behind with Pro-Slide.

    Notice the homemade 35#wheelie preventer near the front casters. Foam filled the front caster tires. Home made manual OCDC from the old deflector. Almost forgot the Enginaire cleaner, that thing is a savior.

    The mowers I have are several years old, and aren't made anymore. I have Cub Cadets commercial walk behinds. They were a model made for a while in the mid 90s with "direct effect" controls. No gears, no shifting, no belts, hydro. You want to go forward, push the handle bar forward and it moves forward. Same thing backwards. I have 1 floating deck 48 inches, one rigid deck 54 inches. Great mowers. Unfortunately, cub cadet decided not to make them anymore because when you do a zero turn, it sometimes leaves a tire mark (their reason). Too bad. I really like them, and would have bought a few more if I knew that they were stopping production. If anyone else were to make the 'direct effect' controls, I'd be on them, too.
