    Local dealer has a 52" cut, 19 hp kawasaki moter on commercial Toro for $5300.00. Said the model number was 74410 but I can't find that on the Toro website. Also I should mention it is a demoed machine with 13 hrs on it. The motor seems a little small for a 52" cut. What do you guys think?

    I had an 18hp on a 52'' bob-cat and was running a collection system off of the deck. It had plenty of power for the weekly lawns but for the overgrown lawns it would bog down with the bagger on. If you are not going to be using a collection system that runs off the deck you might be fine. But I would rather have more hp than less.

    I think you'll be okay if the grass isn't too thick or tall, and I'd only buy it if the dealer gave me the same warranty as new unit.
