    I did a goggle search for "toro grandstand oil cooler" and this thread popped up, so I though I would add my .02.

    I have a first generation grandstand 48, and its an occasional use mower, I am disappointed in the limited operating time it would take the hydraulic oil to expand to the point of overflowing, I know the excessive temps could not be good for the system. I was hoping by now there would have been an after market larger reservoir and or cooler. I can imagine the stress a unit is under when it gets operated almost continuously during a shift.

    Hey , I am subscribed to this thread so I though I would update my findings, I switched from my dealer supplied oil AMBRA Multi G 134 to the Toro manual recommended Mobil 1 and I have seen some improvements in boil rates, I think if I had done a 100% complete flush there would be still improvements to be had.

    Well just wanna say I got the hydro cooler installed today. about 2 weeks the day after i posted above I got a call from Dave Roberson @ TORO and while he was talking w/ me he explained he had someone on the phone w/ my dealer and they would take care of everything . I must say TORO's costumer service is top notch They truly stand behind there equipment and that makes me even more proud to use Toro :usflag:

    Well I just bought a new 36'' (74534) GS yesterday , It had almost 8 hrs. on it they only had one in stock, so i bought it needless to say from the serial # 310000708 its a 2010 model not 2012 or 2013 My question is are there any differences from 2010 till now?? the things I don't like are the deck bounces hard and hits the height adjustment , also i don't like the speed control lever, gas cap doesn't have the string etc.. I wish I would have kept Dave's # from toro service. If you could please help it would be MUCH appreciated.
    Thanks ,Forrest
