    OKay so it's not a ztr!!!, but it's my first real commercial mower and it cuts like a mutha!!! I was gonna get a snapper mostly b/c of price, but after much research and a demo the toro won hands down. picked it up for 1000. My dog stands guard! lol

    sounds pricey. I found a really nice cub cadet with front caster wheels for $700. I cheaped out and bought a $250 Husky, but oh well. I have a couple small circles that I mow and it sucks trying to turn with a conventional push mower.

    I just picked up the same mower. Mine has the blade brake and I paid a little more for mine. So far so good. I bought another HRC 216 the same time to see witch holds up better

    I think you got a good price on that. Up here they run 1200 or better.

    What kind of engine is that? I'm not sure but I don't think toro offers that engine.

    What kind of engine?--Kawasaki 6.5hp. it is basically the same engine as before, but according to toro dealer they changed the top plastic moving the air filter to the side.

    I think so too, thanks. I looked all over for pricing and this guy was the cheapest. Also he has full service at his shop which is close to me so another plus there.

    I debated getting a 32 toro wb he had one for 2100, but not enough lawns now, and I don't have a trailer so that would be an additional cost. ( I know you can load with ramps, but not real keen on that). Besides when I grow bigger I can use this mower as a trim mower. It is perfect for what I need now. Besides I am trying to stay within a budget this year as most of my finances are geared towards advertisements, insurance and accountant
