anyone care to comment on their newer dealer Toro PP
specificially the dealer line with the 'Toro' engine. That appears to be the only engine available now unless I upgrade to the Honda engine. My dealer says its not worth the upgrade. The $550 PP is fine they say. No more Briggs though. Funny, craftsman adds are touting Briggs engines....must be some bad blood between Toro and Briggs.
Anyway, if I buy one, can I expect it to last 10 years with normal maint. (Plug/oil/filter/blade) My current one is older than that but starting to fade. Any issues with getting plugs, filters etc. Are they priced higher than Briggs parts? Any issues with the dealer getting parts for a warranted failure?
