Hey guys. Well, I'm back to looking at a 36", can't get a 48" dad says. I'm going to check it out this weekend when I'm over on the other side of the mountains. It's a brand new Toro 36" hydro full floater with e/start for $3500, which to me, is a good deal. I'm going to go through it pretty good and want to put it through the paces. I'll see if there is some way to test it out, but since I don't live over there, I can't really take it anywhere to try it out. Seeing how it's new, I'm sure there isn't a whole lot that is going to be wrong with it. I would like some input on this mower if anyone out there has one. I will specifically be mulching and have heard that between Toro and Exmark, the race is about a tie. Can I use a Proslide or Velke for this mower? I'm looking at getting a Proslide for it, but where can I get one? None of the dealers that I have talked to had any clue what I was talking about. LOL. Thanks for any input, positive or negative, I'd really like to know how these machines perform since I haven't really traveled down this road. I'll keep posted as I can. Thanks guys!
