Great Add On
I order this HOC foot assist to make it easier to change the deck height. It works great! It took about 1/2 hour to install.

Foot Assist
Helps in raising deck height. Probably not needed for everyone. Takes awhile to install.

Love It!
The foot assist is just that a real quick and easy way to raise and lower the deck.

If you have the mower deck set at say 3.0 inch cut you can press the pedal "and lift the deck" to avoid an object or to keep from scalping the lawn with out the need for anything else to be done. When object is clear of deck let the pedal back down and its at 3.0 again.

Not sure but believe the other review has the pedal setup wrong. Its easy and helps while in motion. While stopped you... more

79019 Foot Assist
I have a Toro 2011 ss5000 and I added the foot assist. It works just like I wanted. I mow at 3" and need to raise the deck for some roots. Just push the foot pedal and it raises the deck to clear the roots and then let off the foot pedal and it returns to original height. I never have to turn deck off, works just as I wanted.

Foot Assist = Waste Of Money.
I purchased a Toro Z4235 through Mowers Direct and it is awesome. Mowers Direct is great too. However, I also bought the Foot Assist HOC System and really wish I didn't waste my money on it.

I thought I could just use my foot to raise the mower deck quickly as I'm mowing if I come across an obstacle. But to use the Foot Assist, I also need to grab the mower Height Adjustment lever and unlock it.

To me that completely defeats the purpose of the foot assist. If I need to grab the lever, I... more

Sure You Need This?
The foot assist works great but I find that I don't use it. I seldom change the mowing height and do not find the standard lever that hard to use. Also be aware that if you use the foot assist you will need to reset the desired height.

Pushing down on the pedal disengages the height setting lever. However, the foot assist might come in handy for someone with a weak right arm. Personally, I wish I had not spent the money.

Wish I Owned More Property!
For years, I used to use a 21" mower & would always consider mowing my lawn to be a 3 - 4 hour "chore". With my new 32" TimeCutter I'm done in 45 minutes - I wish I owned more property!

It took 2 - 3 mowings to get use to the feel of it, but it's the perfect size for getting around landscaping, so mowing is no longer a "chore".

The bagger attachment is a definite plus. It not only does a beautiful job picking up grass, this time of year in New England... more
