    if those were my choices i would go with toro. i have a 36 and 44 inch w/b and i love them. they arent overly expensive either

    i just bought a exmark viking 36 hydro. if your planing on getting the ECS controls they are very touchy i guess you could say. so far it's taking some time to get use to them. + I'm tearing up a lot of turf.
    i haven't tried the gravelys on grass but i demoed one in the parking lot and it was very easy to control.
    I'm staring to wish i did get the gravely but the dealer near me SUCKS !!!!
    the cut on my exmark is awesome !!! even though the deck isn't adjusted right and my stripes are umm well not straight :eek:
    anyway demo demo demo !!! find a dealer you feel comfortable with. the difference in cut i doubt will be that noticeable between though's mowers.

    BTW I'm new to this business so umm this is just a newbies opinion :)
