For some reason, I allways saw potential in the toro titian. Its rated for residential light commercial use. But they seem to make them better every year. It has a great deck, the Kawasaki engine has plenty of power and it is a good comfortable and it cuts great. It is a great buy for $5,000 even plus it came with I think a 3 year warranty. The only thing is it doesn't stick on hills good. With our mowing setup I felt this would be a great machine at a budget price and it fits right in with our 5 mowers that we run.
