I'll probably go with the 2004 Z Master 60. I just realized the Toro Grandstand is a stand upon mower versus a sit down type. I don't want to stand up while I mow my yard.

I don't know much about it other than it's a Grandstand, 2011 vintage and 52 inch deck. If you want to talk to the owner, call 321-403-1111

Both can be bought for $3600...

if the 19hp is a kawi id go with that, a kohler on a toro, two bad combinations.

I had a Kohler engine on my John Deere and it lasted me for 27 years. I have nothing but love for these engines.
