I love it, I do hills so steep it's hard to walk on. The JD dealer said they are bringing back the diesel 4 wheel drive 4 wheel steer later this year I am very tempted to trade in for that, I have worked the heck out of it for the little over a year I have had it just hit 154 hrs today only over heated once "this spring thatching" moves fast cuts amazing. I'll work on getting pics.

I bought the Toro GS 52" and love it for small yards. Got a mulching kit on it and its fantastic.

No more worries of blowing grass on the street or flower beds.

I use it on about about half the lawns I mow. It's quick and manuverable and doesn't leave a big footprint.

One of the best purchases I've ever made.

52" WRIGHT STANDER X. Mostly all small residential with a few larger acre lots. Lot it so far. Very maneuverable. Only have about 12 hours of use so far.

52" GS, works great on the "smaller" residentials but is still productive on larger commercial and resi's.

48" Grandstand & 30" Toro Turfmaster. Best setup I've ever had. I've got a few tiny (.15 acre & under) lawns that I exclusively use the TM on, and a handful of back yards the GS won't fit into that I use the TM on. Probably 80% of my properties sees the TM staying on the trailer. My properties range in size from true "postage stamp-size" up to 4 acres, and I'm happy enough with my efficiency/profitability on the 4 acre one that I don't plan on upgrading any time soon.

I was running a 21" toro commercial, 40" grandstand, 52" grandstand and 61" Ferris,
I just picked up a 30" Turfmaster today and i've been using that in place of the 21" in most places, but still using the 21… i have used my 40" grand stand on a ton of small lawns… i can fit through a lot of gates on it, but like some of the guys said they can scuff up the lawn.
