both floating deck and hydros is what i was thinking? i currently only own a 54" kubota it seems to be too heavy for some of my town homes/new sod jobs. I'm looking to get a smaller, lighter machine. i like the idea of the 48" deck cause is it 6" smaller than what i currently have. i think this would be much lighter. The toro only comes in the 44" deck, it almost sounds too small. i'm afraid if i get the 44" i will get discouraged cause of the excess time it will be taking me to do a job. i do like the idea of getting a toro product cause there is a toro dealer about 3 blocks away from my house. the exmark dealer is about 20 miles away. i wonder if the toro guy would be able to do most of the service work on my machine? I NEED HELP TRYING TO DECIDE. what to do? what to do? i want to educate my self on this before i buy one cause the little things are pretty expensive.
