    Toro T-Bar hydro for me, quick to learn easy to use - great system.

    T-bar for me also. Once you train your employees on the relatively cheep T-bar, they can then run the Zs since they have the same concept of steering.

    I have only demo'd pistol grips, but I think the T bar is excellent on belt drives. I've owned 4 of them and like that you don't really have to shift the mower and it returns to neutral automatically so you can just let go and go pick something up.
