Wanted to see everyone's thoughts on whether it is to early to buy a grandstand yet? I heard about throttle, braking, and hardware issues (all relatively minor) and wondered if anyone has had better luck with a more recent purchase??

Plus who should I contact to confirm if the serial # of the mower I want is an early or later production run?

I have had zero problems in the 3+ months that we have had ours. I specifically asked about all those problems and my dealer showed me how they fixed them...

I def recommend it thus far

Before purchasing one I'd want to be sure the unit had all of the upgrades.

Is there a list of the upgrades to look for/ask about?

the last time I checked it was 34 upgrades to ask your dealer for...I know it sounds bad but they are very small things like checking hardware with a torque wrench for the correct numbers...there are other things like an extra vent for the gas tank for adequate ventilation among others...even with these "problems" I still love the grandstand, it's a good choice you won't regret anything

If you waited and got the eXmark version, I know for sure you can call the support number and they will tell you the build date of the machine. I imagine Toro could do the same thing.
