    I bought my mower the other day, but just went and picked it up today. Toro 36" Pistol Grip Hydro.

    I drove it around today when I got home, and all I can say is....wow. This is a very fine machine.

    It's replacing a 21" Toro that was used on gated yards. I think this is going to be one very productive year.

    I love new toys! :)

    You made the right decision on buying a hydro first. Most people, including myself bought a belt drive first, not realizing how much easier a hydro mower is to handle and is way more productive.

    Congrats on your new purchase!

    You should be more productive now. I have a belt drive Toro 36" and when the day comes to replace it, I'll get a hydro.

    I ran all hydros when I was working for someone else, but the lower cost of the belt drive is why I started with it. I would take a hydro over a belt drive any day. Good luck with it!

    I was actually going to go with a belt drive, but when the dealer gave me the price of $2599 for the hydro, I had no reason to buy the belt drive. It was a very good deal and too hard to pass up! I love the reverse...!

    I'll never forget the sense of pride I got after getting my first hydro, made me feel like I was on the right path. They look so different in your garage and not on the display floor. Have fun with it!!

    The first time that I bought a hydro, I promised myself that I would never go back to a belt

    Good well rounded purchase yz250fpilot. Even if you decide adding a bigger mower in the future, that 36" will always have a place in your mower fleet. Have fun with your new toy :)
