Im in the market for a 32" or 36" w/b. I don't want pistol grips. I have the ECS on my Exmark and that even hurts after a while. I have it narrowed down to a Hustler, Gravely or Toro. I like the controls on these. Are there any others with the T-bar style design. Any input on any of these mowers or other suggestions would be appriciated.

I recently purchased a 37 inch Hustler walk behind and have been very happy with it. I have used Ransomes BobCats for many years with the pistol grips. I find the Hustler to be much easier on my hands. It seems as though the Hustler is a very rugged machine, much more commercial than the BobCats. I believe that the 37 inch Hustler weighs 300 pounds more than one of my 48 inch BobCats, and a lot of that is the amount of steel that Hustler builds into their machines.

No disrespect but that 300 pounds aren't really required in my opinion. I've looked at the Hustler mowers and it's true there's a lot of steel. I just think they're overbuilt. I'm currently using Bob-cat and it seems pretty tough to me. I would like to see a piece of steel running across the leading edge of the deck though.
