View Full Version : My new mower!!

06-14-2009, 07:55 PM
Got a great deal on a 2001 Toro T-Bar 32" Proline. It only had 10 hours on it and sat in a barn for 8 years. Paid $1000. I think it was a great deal. It has the 12.5 HP Kawasaki, not sure if that enough to pull a sulky someday or not?

Knocked my .4 acres from 1:15 to about 25 minutes. Main reason was for hills, did great on the up and down hills and mediocre on side to side but didn't want to spend 4k for a dual hydro.

I can't believe how brand new this thing is. Maybe the price is bad for the age of it, but for the use and sitting in a sheltered garage for 8 years I think it was a great deal.

That was an Awesome deal! If I had ran across that deal I'd have bought it too. Great find.

Good deal and you will have no problem pulling a sulky with the 12.5

My 12.5 Kaw lasted 15 years of moderate commercial service. It still had the original drive belts on it when I sold it. Good mower, good motor. Congrats.

I had the same mower with pistol grips but it cut great.

Thanks everyone, I am still very excited!

Any recommendation on to mulch kit or not and what type of oil to put in her?

I had almost the same exact mower except it was 36inch and 13HP Kohler. The T-Bar is a great set up. I had the mulch kit on mine but the grass in my area in the spring was just too much for it. Other wise it was a great mower.

Nice! I had the same vintage mower, only in a 36. You're going to love the T-bar,,, I did.

Nice, I still have a pistol grip walk behind and do not know if I could get used the the newer styles. Good luck!
