You are the first person i heard say they are really good on hills and banks alot of others say not so good , but am more likely to beleive you as you put 900 hours on the machine while the others that say that have only around 100 to 200 ish. Nice mower anyways.

Fantastic on hills and banks. As good as the Wright in my opinion. You have to have a 48 or 52" to do well on hills. Not sure what the others are saying I have run just about every mower under the sun and the grandstand has been the best on hills and banks for me. Sometimes the on a really step climb up hill the front wheels will lift up if you don't shift your wait all the way forward. That's it though. Thanks for the reply.

my did crappy on hills and then i noticed the tires were over inflated, took them down to 8psi and now i will go in any ditch or mountain without flinching. who would of thought a few pounds of air would make a difference, now i understand why nascar messes with tire pressure

Many people may say a lot of things, but we have 4 52" toro grandstands and 5 60" grandstands and yes there are awesome on hills. I can not speak for the 36 and 48 smaller versions but unless you weight over 250lbs they are awesome on hills, but at that maybe a stander at that weight is not for you regardless of make. I don't know why they don't get as much love as wrights but I can only contribute that to A: not enough people owning them to really know and just looking at statistics that don't practically apply to commercial mowing at 800 hours a year that we put on ours or B: a lot of people have this whole wright stander, oh they were the first and they are the best mentality. I have had wrights and they do not cut as good or cut through the thick wet stuff as the turboforce does. They have a terrible time getting the grass from the left side of the deck out and clump a lot. Not to mention if you are a contractor that stays on top of maintenance why would you want a wright or others they all have sealed non grease-able bearings when the toro has all grease-able bearings. Yea the sealed ones are good for a year but what then if you cant grease them yourself? You find yourself changing the bearings or in lots and lots of cases with wright's changing the spindles vs the toros'. Grease them a lot and no problems. Just my 2 cents but we have mowed a lot with a lot of different mowers and I can say we will not buy another stander brand as long as we are in business. A wright may be nice if you have one mower and mow all resi lawns and mow 200 hours a year on them, but if you want a horse and are mowing a bunch in commercial applications go toro! Last who out there can beat the 5 year 1200 hour warranty toro gives you. To me this doesn't mean much as we hit it in 2 years but for all you guys mowing 200-300 hours a year why not capitalize on that. For those guys they will get an extra 2-3 years out of their warranty over wright. P.S. Has anyone her tried to change heights on a wright vs a toro? Well it sucks and its down by your feet. Much better design on the toro. All around imo toro wins in not only cut quality but cut ability, maintenance, warranty, functionality and productivity.

Only knock on the toro grandstand is the 09 version. If it has had all the updates done no biggie at all. But if you buy a one used make sure the person you buy it from gets all the updates done bc toro will not give the remainder of the warranty to the second owner and you will be stuck forking out thousands on updates. Yes I mean thousands bc thats how much the updates cost. Free under warranty and costly if not. Not trying to beat down the post just trying to educate potential buyers. Great Machine. If you get good on this the sky is the limit. I have gotten so good on a grand stand that I can mow the same commercial property with a 52" grandstand in the same time it takes my best mower with a 60" G3. If it were not for leaves in the fall we would own not one ridder and all grandstands. When it comes to price toro has way better deals on fleet then wright would ever give. Good luck with your sale.

Sorry not looking for trades at this time. Also, this is post for the market place. Can we please stick to potential buyers. I appreciate all the opinions and others experience but that should be for a different forum. Everytime I get a response I think it for someone wanted to buy my machine. I hope you understand. Thank you.

I would like to get $4000 firm for now. I just put two brand new tires on, blades, had all fluids changed and a all routing maintenance done. I really think it is worth $4000.00. from what I have seen on the market. Thanks

That was supposed to be routine maintenance not routing. Where is my head?? Thanks
