Toro v Walker

I need some advice. I am going to purchase a new ZTR and it will either be a Toro ZTR 355 27hp petrol or a Walker 21hp diesel. I need the mower to cut 3 acres residential flat with a couple of small mounds. Pretty normal conditions most of the time. Will be bagging 90%. In New Zealand $$$ the Toro is about $22,000 and the Walker about $32,000. Toro have just reduced their price,s but the Walker,s have not moved. The NZ$ has appreciated against the US$ about 26% in the last 12 months and Toro looks like they are passing on the savings to the consumer which is good. Any advice on either mower would be very welcome but at the moment I am thinking Toro because of the big $$$ difference. Cheers

Speaking from a personal standpoint, I would go with the Walker. It is the standard from which the others try to copy. More options for attatchments, easier to use and better resale. I have a Walker and have read many opinions from those who had a Toro. I have never tried one but then again I don't have to because I have a Walker.
If you have the application for this type of machine then spend the money and buy a Walker. BTW I hope those numbers are not U.S. dollars. If so then you folks better be making big bucks to mow. Good Luck.
