Interesting.the 26 Metro didnt last much longer than 2 yrs either.
Toro uses eXmark as a testing ground for a lot of new equip before it gets the Toro badge. Case in point the next-gen 21" push mowers. After 25 yrs they redesigned the 21" Prolines and eXmark got the Gen 2 first. It sucked at a few things, and 2 years later Toro brought out a slightly redesigned version which improved all the eXmark flaws and badged it Toro only. eXmark is still stuck w/the original crappy gen 2 first attempt. This happened w/a few other mowers as well. eXmark is Toro's testing brand.
I smack my head as you miss the concept completely.Nope. A z2 will hang a slope as well or better than the GS. The only reason they offered behind the wheel was patent. .
None comes close to Walk however and I got deal w/many municipal drainage ditches and slopes and soft turf so Walks for me.
Personally I dislike Wright because the cut quality isn't to my liking and yellow ain't my color but if what you say is true about the prototype I only hope the fuel tank is center mounted like the Vantage or GrandStand.I have seen and used the new prototype in person. A company in our area is demoing them to get the kinks out of the system and my dealer had one in the back the other day when I went to pick up a turf tracer
It basically looks like a red Wright stander x. Awesome machine for what it is.
