I am looking at the GS 30 or GS 45 John Deere 36 w/b and the Toro 36 w/b. I have never operated either one these mowers and am inquiring about opinions of these two machines. I do mulch most of the time and want a machine the mulches well. I have heard concerns that the Toro does not mulch well, but I have no personal experience with Toro's. These are the only two dealers in my area in which I mow, and do know the JD dealer has great service. I have talked to the Toro dealer but have never had to use their services.
