    22" Toro recycler because it was given to me.

    John Deere G15 because they only offer one 36" mower otherwise I would have gotten a hydro in the 36" range from them.

    I hate the belt drive part but the timed blade deck leaves an impeccable cut.

    I have a Toro 44 belt and a TTHP 48 Hydro. Hydro is the way to go if its not a trailer queen. WB for ditches and slopes and smaller lots. I would rather have a Wright Stander.

    Toro 36 wb gear drive...15hp kohler...use it as a backyard and steep hills mower. Lots of bang for the buck...cuts pretty good and has been very reliable.

    currently 48" tthp. love ecs. good cut. mulches well. pulls proslide well.

    previously had jd 48" hydro. good cut, disliked pistol grips. not enough deck volume. only discharged...good pulling sulky

    scags were great. belt drives. i discharged w/ these as well. great cut. good deck volume. tough as nails. pulled sulky great.

    my 36" bd toro was good too. good cut, easiest out of all to operate. (it was hard to lift the front of the deck while mowing to improve cut though, t-bar).

    had a 52" snapper that i got from a trade to help out a local church. good cut. decent controls. pulled great. was old and had few if any major issues. it was the oldest of the machines ive had.

    tthp and scags are about equal imo. the others are pretty good too. i dont keep machines too long, so i cant say on the longevity.

    Mine are two 48" fixed deck Toros, gear drive 15 hp Kohlers.

    You either love them or hate them, and you know the reasons why and if you don't then you have never tried a 4-foot fixed deck.

    All I use, other than the Z.
