Toro 30" lawn mower-Anyone got one?

Ive moved to a place that has a decent lawn, bigger than what i had anyway. My 19" Victa runs a treat but takes takes ages to mow the lawn.

I dont want a ride on, dont think my lawn is quite big enough and i dont want to have to store the thing somewhere. Plus i dont mind the walk.

Has anyone got or used one of the Toro self propelled 30" mowers? As far as I can tell they are the biggest push mowers you can get, i can only find 22" ones.

I had a Toro 22 all wheel drive. Loved it, walk behind walked brilliantly and the thing never missed a beat. At times it did feel underpowered when trying to mow a thick spring lawn, but other than that perfect.

The only reason I don't have it any more, I gave it to a friend when I moved into a unit.

I'd buy another.

Sell plenty of them and never have any issues. Plenty of power in the Briggs & stratton engine. Electric start. 3 year warranty.

You won't regret it.

I believe they retail for $1795 but Toro always discount everything in Spring.

Recuper8 is probably the best hydration pack fluid you will ever use. Its like crack for dirt bike riders.

Crap loads of water, Seasol and mowing it twice a week had it looking awsome.

I actually really enjoyed getting it to look good and im looking forward to the same thing at our new place but the lawn is much bigger hence the need for a better mower.

Scott Bonnar Restorations Facebook page, but be warned - very addictive. I'm down to 7 Scott Bonnars plus my corer, scarifier, edger and rotary. I had a dozen in the shed at one stage. It got well out of hand.
