    Game Changer! This might be a purchase in my near future. I honestly was thinking of doing something just like this with a Grandstand.

    They aren't even on the Toro website from what I could find :( Ill do some more digging

    So from what I am finding though, it will be available in a 52" or 60" deck for mowing AND comes with a 60" Boss plow, if thats true that is a pretty sweet way to have it already bundled. (Since I am assuming the people buying it would be buying it to use year round) But it notes other attachments are in the works.

    Another "Game Changer"...I thought the Boss Plow was the only "Game Changer"...

    I agree great for a home owner. I didn't like how the attachments attached, and the sprocket that turns the attachment looks like a huge failure point.

    That Toro looks sweet.

    Troy-Bilt vs. Toro, sure. That's like comparing a Snow Bear to a Boss, Western, Fisher.

    Interesting concept. The only downside I see is that I LOVE my ZSpray plow and spreader setup. The ability to plow, spread and spray in one pass is unbeatable.

    Having said that, I'm not ruling out purchasing one. I like the blower and especially the bagger compared to a TracVac.

    Not really compairing troy-bilt to toro, just stating that troy bilt is doing a simular concept so more than like this is going to catch on and will have all the manufactures making simular machines weather for homeowners or commercial industry professionals

    That bagger placement is horrible, you'll have to wear a respirator to breath from all the dust and debris flying in your face as you go. I've got a Grandstand with a bagger on the side and that thing is bad enough. I do like the looks of the machine though.

    My guess on cost is $18-$20,000 FOR MACHINE AND $2,000ish for attachments...plus however much a good respirator mask costs ;)

    This concept is nothing new, Gravely did this 50yrs ago with the "L" series. Mine is a '69 vintage, I have a 36" 2 Stage blower, 36" rough cut/brush mower and a rotor tiller.

    Based on what kind of pricing I got on a grandstand before I was guessing 15-17.5. I could have been getting a deal though.

    Theres a GIE vid where the guy was saying with the plow setup its another $3K over the Grandstand price.
    My grandstand was $7950 CDN when I bought it. The multiforce is different as it has aux hydro for some attachments. Have they really doubled in price...?

    I was quoted 10-11k this Spring. My guess with the hydros around 13-15k with mower deck. I love the blower and broom part the best. With that hitch I'm sure you could fab up a spreader or sprayer. I just wish it was available now as I have the perfect job for it. I bet it would do great on resi drives as well.
