I purchase 2 standers yesterday a toro grandstand 48 and a wright rapid ht 36.Both great mowers.Worked with the grandstand all day and operated perfect.Great cut and machine is so smooth. I wish toro would have made a 36 .I do have concern about it being a first year product but with with a 5 year or 1200 hous warranty you cant go wrong with that. Toro it did a great job. I am also 6'5 230lbs and it was great on the hills. You just have to know how to operate it.Down here in the ozarks we are pretty hilly.
