I'd recommend Toro (eXmark) WB's:<p>36&quot; 12.5 Kaw 1950.00<br>48&quot; 14.0 Kaw 2299.00<p>I think turfquip.com has them for similar prices.

You gotta go to turfquip.com. The guy in in Orchard Park, NY.<p>Make yourself wealthy, not your dealer.

I'am looking into a wb, which is better a t-bar or the pistol grips and does toro/exmark make the pistol grip guys here say the bar makes it harder to make straight lines. Let me know I have always used 21&quot; honda's and Grasshoppers but would now like a 32-36&quot; walk behind. Thanks<p>----------<br>T.J. Greenfield<br>

If you are only mowing a few accounts look for a good used machine, many dealers will have them in on consignment or on trade.<br>If not giant vac co makes a inexpensive mower, along with a company named landscaper.It is skag parts assembled by another company. They have prices very low.

If I'm walking behind it, which I assume you'll do, I personally prefer T-Bar. For riding a sulky I like the pistol grips.<p>As far as making straight lines, once you have a little experience, you can make straight lines easily with either.<p>'course, I've had employees that couldn't make a straight line with a laser pointer! :)
