My Toro dealer in Pa has a new 48" with the 19hp.

I am sure he would like to move it..

I can get a new 52" 23" for 6300 so my new price is pretty low.

i have just been trying to find a used one to save money

didn't they hit the market early this year or late last...they are barely if at all a year old. Not sure there is going to be a huge market for selling a machine that is still under warranty.

I am considering selling my 19 H.P. 48" if you are interested. I am going to down size for Spring 2010. I know you said 23/52. It is in perfect shape 250 hours. One operator. I paid 7400 with tax. $6300 is a really good deal. I would jump on it. If you want to make me an offer send a PM. thanks

6300? Seems like a easy decision. That is a helluva buy.

Get a Wright - Toro is wrong. A used Wright will hold up better and hold its value better. Wright has perfected Standers - Toros version is too new and not a Wright. All the other mower companies hae come out with a stander version in the last 15 mos. Why cause Wright rules!

Check out e-bay. $6500 for a Wright Mower with 18 hours - 52 inch. 48 inch new for $6300. 36 inch 4500. They have lots - Toros controls are old style and the stand plat is behind the wheels so it will not do very well on hills in fact it will probably dig out on big undulations.

I demoed both the wright and the toro grandstand. Went with the grandstand hands down. Better cut quality. I found the comfort to be much better on the toro. I now have 260 on it and love it. I had it back to the shop for a few minor issues but my toro picked it up for me and had it done in a couple hours. My brother runs wright products and loves my grandstand. Wright makes a very good product. The ZK is very nice but you can't beat a 5 year commercial Toro warranty and lifetime frame. All for around $7000 new. If you research this site you see many threads on the comparison. I researched for months before buying mine. The stability on hillsides is unreal. Now it does not great for bagging but I use my Walker for that. Anyway, you just wanted to buy a used grandstand and got all this. Good luck.

Lifetime frame??? I never saw a commercial frame ever wear out have you??? Did you demo on you properties or at a demo site? I think you will find over time the results of whose mower is superior. The hill issue hands down is Wright because of wear you ride the mower - between the back tires not behind them - this alone is the difference - better balance point any tander will do better than a nn stander on hills but besides a ventrac with double tires or a robot mower on a winch the Wright is much better. The comfort issue all has to do with - if your Wright is three years old then you have not noticed the spring board stand that absorbs shock - on all newer models - the old one your brother as probably does not have this feature. If anyone is promoting a 5 year commercial warranty - I'm sure it is limited like for the frame - but this is a cool selling aspect, but I would be skeptical on this. I have had Wrights for many years and never needed any thing done but, oil, filters, sharpen blades, idle down before turning off, tires and reg maintenance. Far superior maybe we should start a new thread and have others chime in. If it ain't Wright its Wrong!

Everyone is entitled to an opinion. Demo the Wright and Toro. Then decide. I have nothing against Wright. My decision was the Toro Grandstand based on my research and experience. I am happy with my decision. Someone else may choose Wright. I have been mowing for 20 + years commercial and residential. Good Luck!
