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.

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

Yes it is the best stander in my opinion too but the 60 inch should at least have 12cc pumps with the motor fans as does the wright and scag have. As you know there are no free lunches with the florida heat. Sometimes i wonder where they are tested. I hope they make a retro kit for the unit i recently seen the cooler with fan on the new one. Will see
