    I presently have 15 yards on a weekly basis and am looking to upgrade my 21" mower. I am considering purchasing either a used toro 36" fixed deck with a 12.5 kaw with less than 50 hours for $2000 or I can buy a new toro 44" floating deck with a 15 kaw for $3100 plus tax. Which one would you recommend?

    The Toro 44' floating deck. Hydro with Tbar. Nice cutting mower, stripes well, works good with sulkie. I've got 400 hours on mine with no problems. Always look forward to using it because it fits in tight places and is still big enough for larger areas. Highly recommend it.

    How big are the yards. Though the used one seems to be a good deal. Try getting it for $100 or $200 less

    How often would you be changing height of cut? If rarely or never go with the fixed - if you change quite abit the floater is the ONLY way. Also do you have to go through many gates? I assume these are both T - bars?
