    question, do you know if adding a striping kit to the deck will void any warranty with the mower?

    The Kohler 200 cc engine is a step up from the Kawasaki in power. I have one on an Exmark 30". Personal opinion here, but think the right engine for this mower is the 224cc. Also have a Timemaster and just put the 224 Kohler commercial engine on it. Anxious to try it out in spring growth.

    My personal preferences is the Timemaster even though it is a residential machine due mainly to it's lighter weight by 37 or so lbs.

    Based on 25-30 years per week the Turfmaster HDX makes the most sense. It is built with stronger components - pulleys, transmission etc.

    Shouldn't. Doesn't Toro/Exmark also sell a striping kit?

    I'm getting one in April, well, maybe. I may get the new Ferris instead. I cant decide. I really don't know what's the better decision.

    Was looking into the big league lawn striper. Didn’t know if tapping into the frame would void warranty

    If so, it would only be on the frame unless Toro handles that sort of thing differently than Exmark.

    Stinger should develop a 30" mower that really works.
