I got one of these recently. Price was right (free, delivered). It has a transmission problem that I plan to fix.

Anyone have one of these? Not much on Utube.

This one is 2wd, with diff-lock, 3-cylinder Mitsubishi gasoline-powered 4-stroke, with hydraulic dump. Trans is a synchronized manual 3-speed with high and low ranges. Foot-operated dry clutch. It is also available with 4x4 and power steering.

I have driven it and it is impressive in that it has fantastic turning radius and enormous load capacity. Real hydraulics for a massive dump bed. Capacity is way beyond any side-by-side UTV I have ever seen. Empty weight is about 1400#

It came with a spare scrapped 4x4 Workman transmission, made by TuffTorq.

I will probably post my repair documentation efforts here.

Don't have one, but you can get all the info you need here: Parts | Toro

Get the model and serial number of yours.

I also don't have one, but it's very similar to my diesel Deere Progator which I have been extremely pleased with. These are much heavier duty than the UTV or golf cart based models -they are really more like a small tractor. Mine has a single circuit hydraulic remote out the back controlled by an SCV next to the gear shifter that really adds to the utility. Good luck with your repair

Toro is one of the better makers when it comes to sharing parts and service info. I have the service manual already. I wish I could say the same for JD and Kubota.

I have a local golf course contact, and this unit spent 5000 hours there since new. Current models run $35K or so for fully-optioned units. They are hideous looking, so not too many have been purchased by private landowners/farmers/ranchers, who prefer the Gators, Mules, and RTVs.

Yes. The JD ProGator seems to be amazingly similar to the Toro. Also has enormous capacity and synchromesh manual trans. I have never seen one in person, so I posted a photo of a used 2020A for sale at TractorHouse. Deere promos call it a "Turf Utility Vehicle".

Better looking than the Toro, for sure. Also, well North of $30K for a new one.

Hideous looking? I don't think so at all. In fact it looks perfect for what it is and meant to do. It looks like it is easy to get into and out of, easy to operate controls, and easily accessible dump bed. With another seat and the right person you could even take it out on a date. How long is the bed?

As I said above, the Workman is extremely practical, enough so that I want one. As for looks, which is a separate topic entirely, let's just say that I have a friend who thinks his Prius is good-looking.

Oh, yeah, the bed is 67x56x14" outside dimensions.

So the bed is plenty long enough for a date night. Or for lumber. Did I say that? I meant wood. Well, you know what I mean.
