    What a machine...I more than doubled production from what I was using before (Exmark Metro 26"). Plenty of power (17 HP) electric start...

    Sorry about bragging...but I have never had such a nice machine to cut grass with.

    Will post pics later...

    Congratulations on your purchase. I hope you enjoy it and the unit generates a lot of money for you.

    Does your new mower have the turbo force deck?

    How old is your metro 26? I had one of the very first ones that came out and had nothing but problems with it. I hope your unit was a lot better.

    Thank you joed

    Yes this is a brand new unit for Toro and its the turbo force deck...works really well...shoots grass out the side like a grass pump!!

    My 26" is a 2007 model and has been trouble free...a little short on power and width...but a solid performer.

    Yes it is a 3 blade mower...the size is probably around 18" each blad though I have yet to look at then closely.

    I got the most pleasure from using this machine that I cannot wait to mow more grass...I think my 12 year old son could operate this machine with a little practice.

    I am not a professional lawn contractor (But enjoy this site alot), but I have alot of lawns to mow (Family and neighbors) and the quality of cut is important as is the time it takes to do the job...I probably cannot hang with you pros, but this thing allowed me to cut 5 lawns in the amount of time it took with my 26" Exmark Metro
