Q: Was looking at Toro lawn mowers SS5000 series and Toro series SS5060. Besides the price, one being $400.00 more than the other what are the difference between these two machines?
by John Mccleary from South Carolina on November 07, 2013

A: John - the Toro SS5060 (74632) is basically the same mower as the SS5000, but it is a full-featured model with a number of added accessories that are not included on the SS5000 model. The SS5060 includes an engine guard, a foot-assisted height of cut adjustment pedal, an anti-vibration floor mat, an hour meter and armrests as standard equipment. These would all be "extra" on the SS5000. The SS5060 also has a premium grade, extra tall contoured seat. The seat on the SS5000 is the standard extra tall seat.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Just ordered a Toro TimeCutter zero turn mower. What type gas does it use? regular or supreme?
by John Strickland from Florida on November 02, 2013

A: John - you should use regular grade 87 octane gas. The higher grade gas is just a waste of money - it will not improve engine performance. Also, make sure the regular grade 87 octane gas you use does not have an ethanol content of more than 10%.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Looking for rear engine guard for a Toro 50" Timecutter ss5000 model 74631
by Ron from Maine on October 05, 2013

A: Ron - sorry, but Toro does not offer a rear engine guard that is compatible with the 50-inch, SS series TimeCutter zero turn mowers.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Is the floor plate removable in order to have easy access to the center blade spindle and belt maintenance?
by James Griffin from Texas on June 29, 2013

A: James - the floor plate is NOT removable on any of the Toro TimeCutter zero turn mowers, including the SS5000.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: How is this mower cleaned?

by Jim Thompson from Wisconsin on June 27, 2013

A: Jim - there is a deck wash out port on the mower deck that allows you to connect a garden hose and spray the underside of the deck with water if you wish to clean it in this fashion.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Does the Toro SS5000 50in mow in reverse?
by Mike from Michigan on June 10, 2013

A: Mike - yes, the Toro SS5000 will mow in reverse.

Great Mower
Yes, as one reviewer wrote, uncrating the mower is extremely difficult. That said I suspect it would have been difficult for me to bring it home from a store too. If you don't have a few friends that can help you get it off the pallet then pay for the white glove service and I'll bet the uncrating would be part of that.

Otherwise the mower is great. I did need to top off the oil after the first mow and am scheduled to change the oil now after using the mower 5 times (just to clean out any... more

Very Disapointed
Sold a perfectly good Cub Cadet Tractor to get this Zero Turn for my wife who does the mowing. Bought from Home Depot and tried getting some feedback from them on the operational issues but worthless. Could not go up a 5-10 degree grade in high gear. Would not track properly. Finally had to take to Authorized Dealer when the thing literally would not go forward. They said the unit was badly out of adjustment. All three of the blade spindles are shot with 108 hours of service. Am... more

Be Informed Before Buying This Toro Or Any Other Toro Product
I have been using a John Deere mower over the past 12 years, and was never happy about the way it cut grass. This Toro came in excellent time and condition and there is nothing I have found to complain about the machine itself. It cuts as smooth as a golf course, in half the time, and far less gas. However if anything goes wrong with the Toro I have found that I will be up a creek without a paddle! Toro warranty has to be done at a Toro authorized facility, and my local Toro dealership... more

This Toro Is Great
This 50" Toro ZTR cuts like a dream and is fast. I mow 1 and 5 acre properties and it does great. It takes less than 2 hours to mow the 5 acres. This mower replaces a 13 year old 42" zero turn that the deck finally rusted out on, but still runs good, just no deck. This Toro is much more heavy duty. I read some of the reviews where some people were complaining about how difficult it was to remove from the box. I just can't figure out what they were doing that they thought it was... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Quiet, Exceeded Expectations, Price

Great Mower
Ordered online through Mowers Direct after much research and visits to the local box stores. Saved a ton on the purchase price by ordering online. The box stores in our area had to ship the model I wanted anyway (didn't stock it locally) so there would be a delay regardless.

Arrived yesterday and was already in use by the end of the day. Performed flawlessly on our rather steep sloping yard and it was raining at the time too. Lots of power with the Kawasaki engine. Couldn't be happier with... more

First Experience With Mowers Direct And Zero-urn Mowers
This is my first experience with zero-turn mower, all previous mowers were push or riding tractors, the zero-turn is all new experience, little wild at first use! I have mowed my lawn three times so far, and is getting much better. I think I’m going to like it! I also just ordered the mulching kit, I’ll see how it’s going to work.
I'll write some more then.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Quiet
Cons: Should Improve On The Seat Shock Absorbing Capibility

"Working with Mowers Direct has been a very positive experience, they are very professional. The only thing I would improve on would be a faster payment method when paying with a check. I selected to pay with a check, to save the 2%, but the check took a week for them to receive, and then 5 business days to clear it. Maybe I should have used priority mail. There should be an on-line method when paying with check, to expedite the process. The check cashing is the reason for the 4 starts in Service."

I mow 3 acres of grass.The SS5000 Toro has cut mowing time in half. It does a smooth professional job. It is well designed, easy to use and a Kawasaki 23hp. This machine makes lawn mowing fun.

No Wonder The Mower Has A High Rating
Mower was packed well and delivered in good shape. It is fun to drive and cuts really well.

The Kawasaki engine is a plus - quiet and high quality. So far, no complaints.

Grass Cutting

Not What I'd Hoped
I've been using my Timecutter all summer now, and have to say- for this kind of cash, I should have let the lawn service handle things. I have several issues with the way this mower functions:

1. It leaves clumps of grass in the lawn- lots of them- unless I'm cutting off an inch or less at a time. I have to mow every 3-4 days just to avoid this. Meanwhile, my neighbors with cheap mulching push mowers mow once a week and have lawns that look far better than mine.

2. The thing tears up the... more
