2012 Toro Grandstand 36 inch

In January of 2012 I will be buying a 2012 36 Toro GS. I have been told the 2012 has a 15hp Kawi engine, not the 18hp I saw on the website. Is this true?

Also, I am needing a recycler mulch kit for this machine and the local dealers cant seem to locate it in their book. I know toro offers one. What is the part number for this kit and are blades included?

And finally, what is the deck width with the chute up or removed? I understand the mulch kit is 1/4 inch steel so it should add 1/4 to width.

Thanks!

Kawasaki is now rating their engines to a new stricter standard, thus the lower HP rating - http://www.kawasaki-criticalpower.com/engines
It will be the same size engine, same power as before, only now its rated more accurately.

toro company

Well I just bought a new 36'' (74534) GS yesterday , It had almost 8 hrs. on it they only had one in stock, so i bought it needless to say from the serial # 310000708 its a 2010 model not 2012 or 2013 My question is are there any differences from 2010 till now?? the things I don't like are the deck bounces hard and hits the height adjustment , also i don't like the speed control lever, gas cap doesn't have the string etc.. I wish I would have kept Dave's # from toro service. If you could please help it would be MUCH appreciated.
Thanks ,Forrest

Thanks,Forrest

Yeah I have the fluid boiling out too. When I first got the 60'' GS I was looking for the cooler and couldn't find it, hmm guess it doesn't need it WRONG I always wonder why big mower manufacturers don't have smaller companies test their equipment, instead they have huge companies test them and the "DISTRICT MANAGER" is like the guys love the mowers, of course they are better than the walk behinds you had them running,
I love the GS I just wish they thought a few more things out. still the best stand-on out IMHO. I do wish the anti scalp wheels went lower and were closer to the deck, and two rear anti scalp rollers. my 2 pennies
