    I consider them both pretty much identical. Exmarks are used here much more often than Toro (or any other brand). John Deere is a close 2nd. We subcontract our mowing, and they mainly use Exmarks. I mow my 2-acre lawn as well as our one-acre office lawn with a John Deere 727-A....love it!

    With Exmark being a Toro Company are there any big differences between them? Are they a lot like Husq/Yazoo/Dixon?

    I Personaly Run Scag, And A Few Snapper Walk Behinds But I See A Lot Of Exmarks In My Neck Of The Woods From What I Hear They Hold Up Well. The Larger Companies Like Service Master And Truegreen Use All Types Of Mowers But The Majority I See For Walk Behinds Are Exmark Or Bunton

    Well, here in the corn state(hehe) you see nothing but exmark. Now givin every once in awhile you will see some private guys running a toro or a scag. Almost all the big boys here run exmarks! The only one i know that doesn't is perficut(they run ferris), but they used to have exmark. All in all I don't feel you can't beet the qaulity of and exmark, but with that being said everyone has there own opinion!

    Toro may own Exmark but from what I understand they still compete like 2 separate companies. I prefer Exmark, they sell 2 to 1 over the next leading brand. I guess Toro figured if you can't beat'em, buy'em. :laugh:
