    I been looking for a new mower and was looking at exmark. I also looked at Toro and they are almost identical. Does anyone know what the relationship between the two is. Also has anyone used toro and what about reliability.

    I personally wouldn't own anything but Toro and love the solid 7GA Steel deck vs. the exmark 10 & 7GA deck but Exmark is good stuff and the Exmark guys will say it is the best. Bottom line test and demo them both and get what YOU like as you can't go wrong with eiher. Also use the search feature on this site as this subject has been discussed time and again and you will find tons of threads on this. :waving:

    You worded it wrong. Toro owns exmark. So, toro bought out exmark.

    It comes down to final price and service. The two are a about a toss up. I bought a toro for about $1000 less than a comp Exmark.
