I am considering a Toro front deck mower. It is model 78477. While is is a 1998 model year, it has low hours. It was previously owner by a homeowner who used it for his 8000 sf lawn. It was too big and he didnt use it for the last 3 years. The hour meter has 100.7 hours. It does look like a new machine.

Can anyone tell me of their experiences with this machine? I demoed it today and liked it. While it is a mulcher the 20 hp Kohler Command engine pulled through long (very long) grass with plenty of power.

I am soliciting comments about this machine. Any recommendations or advise would be appreciated.
Thank you

I just did a google search and can't find a Toro 78477. Plus Toro machines that are front decks from 98 have three numbers I.E. Toro 325

You are quite right. While the model on the tag does say 78477, the decal on the tail wheel bracket says "320." Do you know anything about a tor 320 mower. I need to decide if I want to buy it by Monday.
Thank you for your advice.
