  4 Questions
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: How does the mower do on side hills? Where is the gas tank...on the side or under the seat?
by Hsmith from District of Columbia on July 07, 2013

A: The Toro TimeCutter MX5060 is not designed to operate on hills or inclines of greater than 20 degree's of slope. You will most likely experience traction issues on hills steeper than this - especially if the grass is wet. The gas tank is located to the left of the seat underneath the side pod.
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: Why can't I find a light kit for the MX models?
by Tim from Georgia on May 24, 2013

A: Tim - sorry, but Toro does not offer a light kit for the MX-series zero turn mowers.

Great Mower
Researched & compared mowers for 2 months before deciding to go with the Toro MX5060. This mower is the next best thing to a commercial unit. It's made very well & the heavy duty deck is going to last forever. The mower stripes really nice, I have not added a striping kit yet. Be careful on hills when the grass is wet, the mower will slip, as with any mower. As for Mowers Direct, great service! The mower came crated in a heavy duty crate, undamaged. Definitely pay the $50.

Well...
I am generally dissatisfied with my MX5060 mower and the dealer that I got it from. Bought it in June 2013 and before it had the 8 hours break in time on the engine, I noticed that the right front gauge wheel was hitting the right front caster, and I attempted to adjust it. I didn't fix it and I have to keep mowing in the spring or it gets too tall to mow in one pass. I also noticed that the clippings could not get out from under the left side of the fabricated deck. My old tractor had the... more

Great Mower
This machine is a great mid-grade mower. I have 2.5 acres that I was mowing with a 42" lawn tractor. It was taking me over 3 hours to mow. With the Torro MX 5060 my mowing time has benn cut in half. The fabricated deck is impressive as it is commercial grade. The 23 horse Kawasaki engine has plenty of power to get the job done. I would definitely recommend this mower to anyone wanting to get the job done quickly and have fun doing it.
Pros: High Quality, Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Durable

It's A Keeper...
Mower arrived promptly via motor freight. Driver helped unload. Unpacking was an experience. The packing crate was boxed, everything was really packed well and took quite a while to un-crate, even with proper tools, allow yourself an hour. The mowing experience has been a learning experience. Zero turn vs steering is different. After clipping several pot plants, I got the hang of steering. Cranking is quick, mowing is much quicker than my other riding mower with a steering wheel! :) The grass... more

Great Mower For The Price.
I mow close to 2 acres with this mower and so far it has done great. The deck became detached from the lowering system after first mowing, but slipped right back on and has been fine since. Great mower for the money, would highly recommend.
Pros: High Quality, I'd Buy It Again, Durable, Reliable
Cons: Packaging

Toro Timecutter Mx5060 (50") 23hp Kawasaki Zero Turn Lawn Mower
So Far so good. Here are a few things I found as I got things going.

(1) Check the fluid levels. Not that they were exceptionally low, but they were below manufactures specs.

(2) Be prepared to spend some time getting the mower off the packing crate. It is well supported and a chainsaw would be a good tool as well as a hoist. Though I did not use a hoist, it would have been beneficial.

(3) Read, read, read, the owners manual. I thought I knew it all..... Wrong!

So far so good. My grass unfortunately was 3' tall so it took a few cuts to get everything looking like I wanted it to, however, now that its cut down I will stay on top of it and it won't be such a chore.

Mower Blades
I like the mower fine, however the high lift blades give me a big problem. I live in central Florida. In Florida we have a lot of sand and bahia grass and high lift blades are not recommended for either. As I understand it they do not make a low lift or medium lift blade for this mower. This is a problem that Toro needs to address. Any help you can give on this would be appreciated.

Almost
Almost 100% positive.....advantage of buying from a dealer is that it is set for use. Coming straight from the factory, I needed to adjust the linkage for proper alignment of control levers. It took a little trial and error to get it right and it would help if those instructions were available.

Other than that everything else worked out fine.....

Great Value
After using a 48" belly mower for the past 10 years, I decided to step up to the Zero turn experience. I researched over 8 major brands of ZT's, most of which I was able to test drive the handling, feel and speed of the units available in my area. I considered products from the B&M store offerings along with independent retailer outlet businesses in my searches. Service, product reliability, warranty and quality of build and cut were my main objectives. Although my property lawn care... more

Best Mower I Have Ever Owned!!
The people at Power Equipment Direct answered all of my questions and helped guide me to the perfect mower for our 5+ mature acres of land that we mow. The mower is simple to operate and mows beautifully. I could not be happier with the customer service and the mower!!
