    I was at an Exmark dealer today who told me that Toro's use a lower grade Kawi than Exmark. Does that sound right or like sales talk?

    sales talk, I'd find a differant dealer. I believe toro/exmark of are the same. he must not sell toro and wanting you to buy a exmark.

    that's what I was thinking.

    I am looking at a Toro Z149 with 52" deck and 19hp kawi for 5800.

    He wants to sell me a Lazer HP 52" w/ Kohler 23hp for 7700.

    Not sure it is worth the extra 1900..

    With a 52" deck you might consider going with the more powerful engine. You can never have too much horsepower or money.
