    Just got my new 36" Toro T2-bar mower delivered and thought I'd post some pictures.

    Congrats. How do you like the new controls compared to the old style? I haven't had an opportunity to try the T2 out yet.

    Man, we must be getting lazy in this business to need an electric start on a walkbehind but other than that its a nice mower.

    Just curious as to what that cost? I heard they were VERY expensive, well up there with the Exmarks and new Scags... I'm guessing about $6,250 with the catcher?

    I never used the old-style T-Bar Hydro. I used the T-Bar gear and loved it, wouldn't have anything else in gear drive. But in hydro, I've just used the H-Bar.

    Yes, it is plenty, $5650 for the mower and $400 for the catcher. But well worth every cent. Time will tell, but from my experience, it looks like a bulletproof machine.

    Wow. That's a lot for a 36" w/b!!! I can get a exmark lazer hp for $6000 with 46" deck in my area.

    From what I have seen, the riders with small decks 34-48 are often only slightly more than the walk-behinds with similar decks.
    But there are some places you simply cannot take a rider. So walk-behinds are a necessity .

    I agree, but would get a plain old belt drive fixed deck if I was going with a w/b.
