I read a lot of threads debating the qualities of Walk behinds, every time I think I made up my mind I read something that changes it. I asked a dealer about toro he ended up giving me brochures on Gravely. Here in Winnipeg we don't have an over abundance of choices, there is apparently a scag dealer (according to scag's website) but it's not listed in our Yellow Pages so when it comes to service... I want a 48" Walk Behind with a sulky/velky thing, Hydro and floating. I do not want to make a mistake and buy something that is inferior or useless. I can't afford to make a mistake. Gravely, Toro, and Exmark are my real choices here from decent sized dealers. Are they all just the same and all the arguments and polls we see here at lawn site just peoples preferences?
