Toro Grandstand

Does anyone have the Toro grandstand???
What benefits have you found?
What things don't you like?
I am planning to enter my second season of mowing and am trying to plan to be more efficient. Looking to get a 48" Grandstand and likely a 32" Ferris hydro cut.
Any comments or suggestions??

Thanks in advance!

Demo a exmark, cheap to repair, best cut quality on market, according to landscape talk USA.

Opt for the 52" over the 48". I have a Toro zero turn rider as well as the Grandstand. The Grandstand is highly productive, manueverable, and produces a great cut. I have no dislikes with my Grandstand.

Exmark and toro are pretty much the same thing except for the cutter deck.

exactly. when your talking repairs they are the same as far as price.

I think toro and exmark both cut great.

currently I own the 52" grandstand and I pretty much love it. the only 2 things I think the vantage has over the grandstand is the control levers are larger and the adjustable front bar (which I'm not even sure I'd use).
