Some Problems But Works Great
Initially I was not pleased when the box arrived. It had been beaten during shipment I assume and one post on a baffle was bent and wouldn't line up with the predrilled holes in the deck. The other baffle had damaged treads on one post.

After I re-threaded the stud and straightened the other installation was a snap! Without the issues it would have taken approx 20 min to install the kit.

The lawn looks great with no residue left on the grass. If the grass is really long you may have to... more

Change Your Mower To Toro
I bought the Toro for my husband. His other lawnmower was noisy and took him 4 hours or more to cut the grass. His new mower he loves, it's quiet now his gets the grass done in 2 hours. My great grandson loves it even more. He has his seat between his Pa-Pa. It's so much quieter he can fall asleep. My husband said that when he first started cutting the grass, he had to look back to see if it was cutting it, he said there is a big difference from his old mower. It was a different brand... more

Timecutter Ss5000
This Toro model literally runs circles around my Poulan riding mower. Once you get used to the hand lever controls, it's a snap to maneuver. The only down side was trying to get the mower out of its crate. The instructions from Toro did not work as advertised and I had to make some ramps from the removed wood to roll the mower out of the crate. The Toro engineers should rethink the removal process or provide ramps.

As an aeronautical engineer, I pride myself on being able to figure out... more

A Real Time Saver
First I must say that writing a review is a very cumbersome event.

So I bought my mower a 42" Time cutter model #74360 at a local big box store. It was a close out and whom ever put it together overtightened a screw and cracked the plastic so it was discounted even more.

Got it home and I had some issues getting it to run. That little lever in the back has to be in the middle. No big deal. Ran it for a couple weeks and I love it. I have roughly 12 acre of grass and I can do it after... more

Wont Start
I've had intermittent starting problems for 2 years now.. have replaced the battery, starter, solenoid.. still,, every other time I go to start it it behaves like the battery is dead. I put a charger on it but usually within 10 minutes it says full on the read out and I can start it.. not always.. the dealer doesn't know what's wrong.

Great Mower At A Great Price
I bought this mower a few days ago based on the review it received in Consumer Reports.

Full disclosure: I have only used it one time but was very impressed with the speed of the mower. No, I didn't buy it to race it, but the less time I spend mowing the more time I have for other honey-do's. I can already see this mower will cut my mowing time in half. It is as advertised in my opinion.

Buying online isn't a scary thing for me as I only use companies attached to Amazon or another... more

Save The Starter
Bought from a local dealer with almost as good a deal as MD. Added an hour/RPM meter from ebay for less than $15 including shipping. Put it in that little flat area behind the cup holder.

Also got a quarter inch (ID)outboard motor primer to save the starter. I noticed the starter had to work extra hard to get the gas to the carb after a week of sitting. Do yourself a favor and spend the $20 for a primer. Works like a champ.

I mow about 2 acres and it is a blast. At least it's a... more

Perfect Transaction!
Love the mower! Used it the day it came and mowed our yard and surrounding pasture.

It went through some really tall grass outside and did a smooth and beautiful job on the yard. Price was very good and it was delivered quickly.

I highly recommend Mowers Direct!

Motor Uses Oil
The motor used oil from day one- 19hp Kohler. Look around before people be for buying Toro.

Tom,
New Toro mowers have Factory Warranties.

If your mower is using oil, have it checked by a Toro Authorized Service Center. If it is due to a defect in manufacture it will be repaired under the Warranty and won't cost you any money.

To find the Toro Authorized Service nearest you, give them a call, toll free, at (888) 384-9939.

Purchase Mistake- Maybe Not
The wheel tracks are terrible. While mowing in the third notch if moved to two and a half the mulching is not effective.
Had I known the above I never would have bought it.

I had a Simplicity before, it did a great job. I guess I should have stayed with the same brand. I guess I'm out $2500.

Don,
The 74360 mower has a generous, 3 year Factory Warranty. Simply click the Customer Service button at the bottom of our website and select Service Centers. Then click on the link for the Toro Service Locator.

There are at least 10 Authorized Service facilities in the Canfield area. We suggest you call around to find the shortest turn-around time, then discuss your situation with the mechanics. They should be able to set up your mower so it performs up to your expectations.

Starting Problems
Same here. I bought this Z4200 74360 from a big box store in May, 2010. Over the next 5 weeks, I had intermittent starting problems.

Thinking it was the seat kill switch, I bought a new one and changed it. Same thing. THAT'S IT! I disengaged the rear wheels pushed it to load it onto my truck. Just for grins I tried to start it. BINGO! When it is running it runs like a deer!
