    Mysteryman - The new specs, new literature and website will all be released/available in early January. When requesting literature on-line, be sure to indicate that you're interested in the new 2010 models to ensure that you receive the correct literature. This will include all deck sizes, 36/40/48/52/60. In the short term, here are a few specs that I can share with you now.

    Model # Model Year 2010 Description
    74534 18hp Kawasaki w/36" TURBO FORCE deck
    74536 18hp Kawasaki w/40" TURBO FORCE deck
    74538 20hp Kawasaki w/48" TURBO FORCE deck
    74539 20hp Kawasaki w/52" TURBO FORCE deck
    74548 24hp Kawasaki w/48" TURBO FORCE deck
    74549 24hp Kawasaki w/52" TURBO FORCE deck
    74551 25hp Kawasaki w/60" TURBO FORCE deck

    I guess you could say it floats, just not gracefully. Because of those deck edges hit turf you'll get gouging, not a nice smooth cut. I assume it's a tradeoff of having to keep the engine pulley and deck pulleys lined up. A true floater would be quite nice. I'd settle for a deck width that matches the wheel width so it can handle the undulations.

    UGA, have you had any problems with deck packing or lack of vaccum with that 40" deck? Mine is disappointing in those areas.

    I found this information on the Toro site for the 74536 (40" Grandstand 18hp) Can you tell me, is this a dual pump/dual motor setup like the larger models? Or is this a single pump/dual motor (or the unlikely scenario, a 'transaxle')?

    Thank you.

    mysteryman -

    The new 36" and 40" GrandStand mowers utilize dual independent hydro pumps and wheel motors like the larger 48", 52" and 60" models.

    My deck does pack with weeds and wet grass. The small deck I think is the reason for this. Plenty of vac as long as the deck is not clogged up. I really only have problems with sappy weeds and really wet grass...very sharp blades do help.
