Well the walker will pick leaves up better, but will be slow even with a speed up kit.

What are your conditions and types of yards up there?

Are you cutting 5 acre commercials or small residential?

We need more info to help you out.

Mix of KBG and fescue.

A few Residentials that don't request collecting (2-3 acres) where I do the fall cleanups also.

Several small residentials also where some would prefer collecting (.5 acre lots) where I do the fall cleanup as well.

1 new-to-me commercial that doesn't have a preference for collecting or not.

I guess I'm also wondering if the hours on either machine make much of a difference.

Thanks!

yea, you have a huge difference in run time on those two machines. Id go with the toro, maker some money and find a bagger for it, even a side bagger would do.

That's what I was leaning towards. The hours are nice and low, and the mower has been well-maintained.

Thanks for the input!
