    NO Don't personally like any toro wb. I sold them due to a certain break down multiple times on only 1 mower. Still with in the warranty time but no support or coverage. I stopped buying anything from that dealer, sold the toros and bought gr. danes. Now after a season w/ the danes. Our times are faster, and they distribute the grass better less blowing for us Cut is excellent.

    I have Proslides on both of my walk behinds and you wouldn't believe the strips that they leave behind. I know some people say not to put them on belt drives, but I used them almost all season last year and had no problems whatsoever.

    I had a belt drive 52 ten years ago and it was great! Got several thousand hours on it. The belt drive is almost a MUST in the mountains here because you can go side to side and let the mower just float back on you as you make turns on a steep hill.

    I have a proline 52 hydro and have had no problems, I am currently about to sell it but have no idea what it's worth. It has the grass cage (never used) riding attachment and has 688 hours on it. Anyone interested make me an offer.

    Ive got a good amount of experience with Toro walkbehinds from a company I worked at for a few years. There built very well, however the older 52" WB's ive ran scalped real easy. Not a good mower for someone who didnt have alot of time mowing.
