    I ordered my new Toro today, I pick it up next Saturday. I will mulching 100%. I went with a Z560 - 52" deck and a 30HP Kohler. I am hoping this deck and engine combination along with the mulch kit will give me a great finished product. I was very concerned with bogging and grass blowout and I went through many hours of thought before deciding on the Toro. I hope I went the right route.

    Any Thoughts...?

    I am sure you will love it. Where we live here in MD nobody uses mulching setups in the spring because the grass is so thick and always wet from morning dew that lasts half the day till it dries up. From my understanding that is one of the best decks in the industry so it should provide an awsome cut!

    My dealer is trying to sell us on the 60 and the 72. I was just wondering if there was feedback on the 30 hp kohler.

    Not sure I was originally slated for the 27, but, when I saw they started using the 30 I told the dealer I wanted to go that way. I was thinking the more HP, the less bogging...hopefully anyway...

    Here are a few pics. I mowed 3 yards with it after I picked it up. Wow that 30HP Kohler didn't skip a beat. Loved the way it mulched...:walking:
