Since I posted last I took the mower back to the dealer and they got a different 36" grandstand, 2012 model I believe, and they said they would sell it to me for $950.00 more. When I bought this mower I was hesitant to leave with it. I thought it was an older model because my 2011 60" toro grandstand i have had zero issues with and I really love the mower. So before I left the dealer I asked the sales rep if he was sure this is a new model mower. He went on the computer and checked and said he received it June of 2012. Needless to say it's not. I am having problems with this mower and I need some help. I'm having my wife type for me right now, i hate typing, lol. Could you please have Dave call me again, he was very helpful with the hydro cooler for my 60" grandstand. Thank you very much.

Since I'm thinking of getting a Toro GS 52" I thought I'd get this thread going again.

Has anyone else had problems with the GS? I did talk to one other person who didn't have the boil over but the hydros are sluggish which is a symptom of the oil getting too hot.

He has been having to constantly adjust the right side to try and keep it tracking correctly.

My dealer tells me the model I'm looking to purchase is a 2012 model but there is not a hydro cooler on it.

I emailed Toro and they got right back to me the next day which impressed me. They said the 2012 model came standard with a hydro cooler.

I'm thinking my dealer has a 2011 model and doesn't know it or maybe he does???

I'd just like to get some more info before I pull the trigger.
