I was just wondering everyones thoughts on these two machines. I have tested the deere and really like it but the bagger leaves a lot to be desired. It handles great. I have not tried the toro yet but it will come with a 25hp kawi instead of the 23 kawi on the deere. The toro baggers don't even compare to the deere. I like the wide tires on the deere better and the deck seems a little better. The one on the toro is not the new one with the baffle. As far as price they are both coming in pretty close.......how am I looking for expensive parts for the deere and durability on the deere? In my area I don't see many guys running the deere but the toro is all over. Thanks for your thoughts.
