OK so before I get a new toro 36 just like my 97' model I would like to try a quick 36 for myself . you can't help but wonder about the comparison . anyone out there close to me willing to let me test drive your quick 36. I am interested in the samuri 36 with the ele start 16 Kaw but any model will do since I basically want to check out handeling. I like the idea of the short stature of the mower. its $3139 for a toro 36" 15hp kaw with turbo force deck. by the time I add tax it will be over $3400. At $2795 +shiping I can get an ele. start with a bigger motor for $400 less. Its that or buy the toro out of state!
