    How well does the Toro stripe? How well are the stamped Turbo Force decks built? Does the offset on the deck make a funny looking stripe? I like the greasable spindles on the Toro and I can get the Toro a little cheaper. Will one cut better than the other?

    I would think demo both of them and see what one you like.

    Toro all the way!! I have both and the new Turbo Force deck will cut better than any mower I have used. I have tried most of them out there.

    I have 2 new Toros with the 60" Turbo Force deck and I am very impressed with the quality of cut and the striping. I don't have a striping kit on mine and don't know if one will help much but I will try one in the spring and let you all know.

    I thought about both... I actually was going to get the exmark lazer z but backed out of the deal and went with the toro.

    Go for the super z. Hydro oil cooler with cooling fans for cooler oil, larger pumps and motors, suspension seat, 15 mph and at a good price you can't go wrong.

    I was having the same trauma, but ended up getting the Toro as well. Came down to price. Z557 27/60.
