Hey Folks, I'm in the process of starting up and have been trying to decide on equipment. I was thinking that starting out with a 36" walk behind would be the most practical piece to purchase first and save the Z-rider for later. I ma stuck between a gear driven Scag and a gear driven Toro. The scag is going for around $1,500 and the Toro around $2,700. Is there any difference other than money ? I'm confused why the Toro is so much higher in price. I wish that I could afford a hyro but am hestitant to spend the money. Any suggestions ?
