    JUst bought a 48" toro turbo force mower for $3500 out the door which included the bag.

    Please give me your opinion on this mower and if i will be happy with my purchase.

    I've never spent this much. AFter having to fix my old mower and waste time having it fixed, i realized it was time to by new.

    has 2 year warranty and if any problems they said while under warranty it will be fixed within 1 day which is priceless since i cant afford waiting weeks to have a mower fixed.

    this is the link to the mower.


    Would you guys of personally bought this for this price?

    I didnt want to spend more on a ride on ztr since i dont have large enough properties.

    Also this is 6 months no interest.

    THank YOU!!!

    You got a superb mower. Toro makes really good products and their Turbo-force deck is really nice. Mower plus a bagger for $3500 sounds like a reasonable price. I am guessing that list would be around $4000 for those two things.

    I think you should be very happy with the mower.

    The definition of a good deal is when both the seller AND the buyer are happy with the transaction.

    You got a quality machine that, if you take care of it, will last you a long time and help you make money.

    Are you happy with it?

    Is the dealer happy with it and willing to give you good service?

    If so, it's a good deal. Doesn't matter what anybody else thinks.

    Looks like a solid mower. My Toro 36" is a 1985 and still making me money without having to do any repairs ever.

    Have you ever used a hydro w/b?

    I'm gonna guess not, cause once you use a hydro you can't go back to belt drive.

    im always trying to save money but when i think of it its no good to buy a used machine from somoene and pay to have it repaired and wait weeks to get it back this is why i spent the money, im sure this will be a good investment and pay for iteself. Just a lot of money when i paid $450 for my truck and $500 for my 16x6 trailer now my mower is 3x the price.

    dealer said as long as its under warranty which it is for the first 2 years it will be fixed for free and with in 1 day...which really surprised me and sold me on this machine.
