    not with a turbo force 48'' er. the 48'' er is the Z355 bagger/mulcher front mount Z.

    Be a great machine if they ever do, I went from a 48 Z to 60 Z and often miss the 48, I think a 50/52 would be the most versatile size, next mower will be smaller than 60 not bigger.
  4. the current 100 series and the walkbehind are sometimes this summer ..will be converted to turboforce dec ks

    My dealer mentioned that Toro was going to introduce a 100 series machine with the turbo force style deck on it in about a year. I do not know if they are going to make it with the 48" or just the 52". What I do know is I will be first in line to demo one when it hits the market. Exmark has been 'lead dog' long enough it is time for Toro's view to change...

    Just purchased a Toro 48" with Turboforce deck. Its called a Z453 and runs with a 23hp kwaka. Very impressive ground speed and a nice cut. They sell for around $14000 Oz.

    I wonder if the "7-Gauge" deck is the old superflow deck? Anyone know?

    I believe the SFS decks are being discontinued. You might be able to get better info on their website

    The 7 GA deck is the same design as the Turbo Force, but has no adjustable baffles.
