Larry the toro/exmark is the easiest machine to steer and operate. Use it on 20 lawns and your a pro with it. I sold my one year old T3100 because I hated it. Gave me to many problems. Using the toro is a breeze. Best thing I ever did was sell my T. Now did I get a lemon perhaps. But I wasn’t going to keep it to see what else was going to go wrong with it. The toro is all hydro no belts no problems at all.
