I have recently purchased a Toro Z-Master 44" 17hp with the recycler kit. It has 56hrs on it and I am not to happy with it. It is to hard to back up and go forward the steering levers are stiff. When turning it dosen't cut a little strip. The deck blows out a ton of grass all over you, you look like a big grass clump when you get done. I will have to double cut lawns that are thick. What I am in search for is the perfect mower I have looked at the walker it is very easy to manuver and with the one inch overlap on the blades it could solve my prolem but I think I would rather have a mid-mount. I have heard a lot about dixie choppers and there mulch to side discharge would be great I haven't ever really looked at them real close though maybe I should but they look bulky. Well any way I am looking into another mower and what I would like to know is what you like and some of the features you like about it any help would be greatly appreciated. <p>Exquisite Lawn Services<br>Central Floridia<br>Where the grass is tough!
