Toro is one of those brands that know what they are doing and have a well respected name. No matter the form of machine they come up with, I always have something to love about it.
This is true of their Grandstand Stand-On Mower too. One of the most popular stand ons in the market.
There are many things to love about this mower and has continually improved over the years.
The choice of engine on this unit is the Kohler Command EFI 747cc engine which can generate as much as 25 HP. The engine comes with a standard, heavy-duty canister air cleaner out of the box to improve efficiency.
There are also Kawasaki FS and FX models. The specifics are layed out below.
Run by a fuel tank that can take up to 10.5 gallons of fuel at once, the highly-efficient unit is capable of driving the engine up to 10mph in the forward direction.
- The engine powering this unit is none other than the strong Kohler Command EFI (48″, 52″, and 60″ models), Kawasaki FS (36″ and 40″ models), and Kawasaki FX (48″ and 60″models.
- The machine can reach speeds of up to 10 mph going forward
- 10.5 gallon Fuel Tank
- This mower comes in a cutting widths measuring 36-60 inches

This unit is one of the strongest and easiest to maintain on the market. The body is, of course, made of heavy-duty metal which will withstand a lot of the abuse you will be throwing at it.
The spindle bearings are maintenance free, so that makes one more thing you don’t have to worry about. The tires (20 inches on the back and 10.5 inches in the front) have been designed to support the entire system while withstanding abuse from different working environments.
Being a stand-on mower, you don’t get a seat. However, you don’t have to walk behind the machine if you don’t want to either. The Grandstand is unique because the operator can stand on the mower or walk behind it while mowing. This can be good for steep terrains.
Overall, the mower is fairly comfortable. There is some room for improvement, like the pad you rest on and the platform.
For a unit that is supposed to be compact, Toro did all they could to work some beauty onto their Grandstand Stand-On Mower. If you are conversant with this manufacturer, you will understand their love for the red colors and black details where need be.
That is what they have used throughout the paintjob.
Likewise, the engineers behind this one fused in the ergonomics with the looks of the equipment. That helped create the beautiful yet highly functional piece of equipment we are talking about today.
The mower also offers an exceptional visibility which not only protects the operator, but the machine and property too. The sturdy design and spread of the tires also allow for a better standing, making it possible to run the machine in rocky and hilly areas without the fear of tipping.
You can get the Toro Grandstand Stand-On Mower from your local dealer. It is advisable that you check around to get the best deal.
A lot of things could also affect the final price of your unit. These include, but are not limited to, extra additions you might request, the choice of dealer, location, delivery fee, etc.
