After 6 years of mowing with Jacobsen 518s that have been extended well beyond their lifetime, it’s Christmas in July. More pics to come following Barry’s departure.

That mower was just introduced in January, right?

Nice! Everything is modular. The engine can be swapped as easy as swapping the cutting unit. I can’t imagine what that would cost being so new. I have to stick with the old retired units due to cost but would love one like that or the bigger 1026. Sweet mower.

@JLAD I don’t know what’s going on over there, but I’m getting a bit impatient waiting for more pics and details on this new unit! 😂

When is the first cut going to happen?

You’re as antsy as myself. I’m in the middle of what’s now Tropical Storm Barry. I mowed yesterday evening but it was far from a normal mowing. It’s a long story between multiple breakdowns of 2 mowers, unable to mow for a week. I’d like a chance to use it a few more times before passing any judgment but it seems to be a great machine as anyone would expect from Toro. I’m open to anything and everything you guys want to know. Contact me here or on IG @jeremyvladner via DM

I know you will love that mower

I have already replied but I can’t help it. I have to say again that thing is sweet. Love the roller, the Honda engine (so many parts available), the compact transmission, the modular design, the ability to remove the cutting unit to take only that for sharpening, and of course the new. I have been swapping bearings and oil seals which is not bad but it must be nice to know everything is already done. All I can say is congrats, you will indeed love it.

A handful of items helped the idea to splurge on new, Toro returning to the Honda engine was a big one, second being the return of the operator presence handle that functions as a
drive engagement. I’m a huge fan of that on the Jacobsen 518s. I couldn’t agree more on the idea of removing the cutting unit to bring in for grinding vs the entire mower. Once they’ve been on the market for a few years I hope to pick up a spare cutting unit to have for use while the primary is away for grinding.

Only thing missing is a TLF sticker. :thumbup:
I may not have the best lawn and I may not have a clue what I’m doing but that’s pretty much all I have to say.

@JLAD Amazing machine man!

So how do we get a group buy going on these?

I would think if we have a few members interested we could contact a dealer and make something happen.
