I purchase 2 standers yesterday a toro grandstand 48 and a wright rapid ht 36.Both great mowers.Worked with the grandstand all day and operated perfect.Great cut and machine is so smooth. I wish toro would have made a 36 .I do have concern about it being a first year product but with with a 5 year or 1200 hous warranty you cant go wrong with that. Toro it did a great job. I am also 6'5 230lbs and it was great on the hills. You just have to know how to operate it.Down here in the ozarks we are pretty hilly.
May the Luck of the Irish be with you
