Other than the traction and deck heavy design, should I be wary of buying a 2003 model Toro hydro pistol grip 44" SFS deck wb mower? How do they mulch? I owned a t bar version and it cut well except for needing more power (15hp Kohler single) and the T bar steering was just not a good design on the hydro models. Too jerky. I have read that the pistol grips gave much better control. I need a unit for ocassional use where the ZTR won't reach (gates, hills) so I could live with the pistol grips for the short amount of time it'd be used.
