Toro Grandstand 48" w/ 530 hrs, 23hp, mulch kit $4900 (Birmingham, AL)

Birmingham, AL

Bought it in 2009, has 48' deck with 530 hours, running great. Love the thing, wanna get a new one with a 60in deck, only reason for selling. Great Cut, easy controls, tons of visibility, great for pushing leaves (one of the best surprises, saved TONS of time). Power and speed of a zero turn with the versatility of a midsize. Foot deck folds up for major space saving, tiny footprint on a trailer/bed.

$4900 solid, great mower

My dealer upgraded the cables free of charge under warranty. Reverse is somewhat slow but more than enough to do anything you want. hits about 7 mph forward instead of the 7.5 I clocked it at originally.

IMO, it doesn't cut well faster than 7 mph anyway so it only slows you a little in transport through parking lots and stuff. NBD to me. Other than those little quirks it is like new operationally.

I think if I had a tune-up done, they could probably tweak another .5 mph out of it and maybe gain a little more in reverse. I has been about 250-300 hrs since we had that done I believe.

How well does that mulch kit work? Does it leave rows of cut up debris or what? Just curious if it will do good on Bermuda.

That was my biggest surprise. It runs 6 mph with no lines on some of my nicest large Bermuda yards. It has a lotta hp for such a light machine. Motor sits right over the deck and delivers major power.

That sounds good. I have all Bermuda and was concerned that it might have a lot of blow out.
