    I am wanting to purchase a 32-36" mower for getting through backyard gates. Does anyone know anything about Proline mowers?

    Are you talking about Toro Proline mowers? If not then can you please provide a link to the manufacturers website.

    Toro Proline's are solid machines. Most guys do great with 'em. I've beat the living crap out of my two, but they're certainly one of the best bang-for-the-buck mowers available. A belt drive T-Bar is a good machine. MY brother in law, LawnTamer has well over 4,000 hours on his first T-Bar...

    I have a 48" T-Bar Toro, with a 14 horse Kawi motor on it and its belt drive, let me tell you, this is the best mower I have ever used. I love the thing, you yank on the pull start and it doesn't even come out halfway and its running. It does take some getting used to with the T-Bar, I use it on some pretty hilly areas, but once you get the hang of it is real easy. The only complaint I have is it actually gets a little bouncy because it isn't the heaviest walk behind out there, and if your going up a hill it will "wheelie" if your not to careful with it. Good luck!

    I replaced some of the spacers on my front casters with 2.5# weights from a cheapo barbell set. Helped eliminate that issue.

    Ive had mine(36" t bar) for 6 yrs now. Still runs and cuts great! The best money Ive spent on equipment. I have friends who run the 32" t bar and have had the same luck with them. I dont think you can go wrong with them.
    They can be used on little yards...if you get something bigger, put the sulky on and you can eat it up fast.

    dont know if i rad your reply correctly or not, but the 36" gear drive will pull a 200+lb guy just fine. i cant tell whether you meant if you get bigger properties or bigger mowers.
