    How ya doing?
    I was looking at this mower on ebay. I've used a WB before, but never a toro. I've used an encore and a ferris, both having hand brakes to steer them. How do you steer this mower???? He wants $900 for it.

    that black bar on the handle. push the left side down to go right, push the right side down to go left, push both down to go straight. it is by far the best setup in todays market.

    you push forward on the bar to go forward, and pull back towards yourself to stop. So if you want to turn right you would pull back on the right side, stopping the right wheel, and vice versa for left. Its actually very easy, and once you get used to it its alot better than a pistol grip mower.

    Sounds easy, it's a 36" with a Kawi. motor, comes with the grass catcher. I know the catcher alone is like $150. Think its worth $900?

    That's what Toro calls the "T-Bar". Excellent system. Great on a belt drive, even better on a hydro.

    This "walking" mower has been relisted numerous times now. In fact, I think he has even had it listed for ~$850 before. If I were interested in it, I'd email him a lowball offer. He just might go for it.

    I agree with Rick. Send him an email and offer him , say $ 500.00 and go from there.Replacing belts can get expensive if they are really worn underneath.You never know, he may go for it.Good luck!

    How old is it? How many hours? I can about BET that it's not worth 900 bucks. Caviot Emptor.
