He also threw in an acclelerator bag, a Toro cloth bag, the Toro chute blocker, 3 sets of blades and all of the owners manuals. All for $4500.
Sounds like a real good deal, Jeff. I was looking into Grandstands last year, but I didn't want to spend quite that much on a new machine. I ended up saving about $2k with my Snapper. I would like to try one out; if only for curiosity's sake.

How the Grandstand handles hills, was a concern. Once I get the hang of it, I will let you guys know. I am going to clean it up today. There was snow out east on the PA turnpike so there is some water and salt marks on it. Will post pictures after I do that. I also want to install the OCDC to see how it works. The OCDC looks brand new, right out of the box. I love the accelerator bag I got with it. It is so light compared to my old bagger and holds more grass, I now see why people spend the money on them. I need to start mowing ASAP, my wallet is a little lighter after this purchase.
