It looks like I will be buying one of the above for practical reasons - availability, parts, etc and have placed an order with a dealer. For you US guys, the price was $15,510 AUD which today translates to $11,767.4 USD so you can see the costs of transport. One eleventh of that is a Goods and Services which I can't escape. What I am now after is an electoirnic copy of the manual so I can read up on things prior to taking delivery. If I had the serial number on the quote form, then I could get it from Toro's web site, but without that - no go. So, if ayone has access to an electronic service and instruction manual, I would greatly appreciate a copy.
