    All the brands you mentioned are good. My advice is to deal with the closest and most reputable dealer near you. Recent posts say that the B.O.P. products are worth the investment as well. Comes down to a "Ford/Chevy" matter.

    I have an Exmark TTHP in 48 inch with down turned pistols. Rough on the hands and I dont think the up turned are any easier to pull on the levers. If you have to have a WB, I would look at the newest Toro system. H2 I think it is. Personally,I would replace mine with a Wright Stander for easier operation, if I thought there was a future for this business in my area.

    Gravely with ProSteer works well for me.

    the new toro is the T-2, very similar to the gravely prosteer, and a stander. i have a tthp that i converted from normal pistol grips to the ECS (the turned up pistols) and it is much easier on the wrists. my hands/wrists would kill me after a day of cutting, now i can cut for hours and not feel a thing. i dont know what kind of long term damage the ECS could cause or prevent, but it is better than normal pistols.
