Q: Is there a bag attachment for this model. If so how many bags and how big are the bags?
by Chris from North Carolina on March 21, 2016

A: Chris - the Toro TimeCutter 74721 would use the Toro #79391 twin bagger: 79391 bagger

Q: Can I buy an arm rest kit for the 2016 toro SS4225? If so, What and where?
by C. E. Kirkland from Georgia on March 20, 2016

A: C.E. - unfortunately, the seat on the Toro SS4225 (model 74721) is not designed for use with an arm rest kit.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Several of the Toro Zero Turn mowers have 23 or 24HP engines. That seems very high for a riding mower - more like a Kubota (or similar) tractor. Are these suitable for towing big loads or adding attachments? Is there a PTO?
by Kyle from Connecticut on May 20, 2015

A: Kyle - the Toro TimeCutter zero turn mowers are not designed to tow heavy loads. Towing capacity will vary by model, but for the most part, these mowers will not tow more than about 200 to 250 lbs total payload. And none of the zero turns that we sell have a PTO that would power any sort of attachment.

The Toro SS4225 zero turn riding mower offers a 42” wide mower deck and powerful 22HP Kohler engine, which makes it great for wide open areas. Also the 2 anti-scalp wheels on the deck will allow it to float over the turf to prevent scalping of your lawn.

The Toro TimeCutter SS4225 features the Toro Smart Speed™ control system. This exclusive Toro innovation lets you choose different speed ranges with the flip of a lever without changing the engine or the blade speeds. Mow large open areas... more

Better Than My Old Wheel Horse
I have never owned any mower other than a Wheel Horse (Toro) this is my first new tractor since 1987 .My old tractor still runs fine ,just a little slow, considering it has over 4500 hours on it, (18hp Kohler).

I have cut my 1 acre yard with it twice ,it has a beautiful cut but I am still getting used to the zero turn that my son talked me into. Don"t get me wrong it is alot faster than my old garden tractor and I am sure once i get the hang of it i will like it even more .

"The mower came well crated, took about 45 minutes to uncrate fill with fuel make the necessary adjustments and get to it. The truck driver took it off the truck put it in the driveway, fell in love with my old Wheel Horse. I had a cup of coffee. Talked about his old tractor, quite similar to mine and helped uncrate it considering I had just had knee surgery a week earlier ,his help was much appreciated"

Used Once Then Failed
got 1 ss4225
and also a ss5425

the 4225 was used once and the electric brake switch failed ( would not release the brake )
it started but cannot move

2 - 3 weeks to get it in to service and be repaired

keep in mind its brand new, just got it - i want to use it and not use the old push mower

cant blame the local dealers - if there schedule is full its full

ordered replacement part ( $150.00 ) with shipping
put it in and back to service

what i am disappointed in is... more

Toro 42" Time Cutter Ss 4225 Zero Turn Mower W/ 22 Hp Kohler Eng
I did a lot of research on Zero Cut Mowers. Toro had the most best reviews. I order it from Mowers Direct. It came in about 2 weeks. Very well crated. Delivery was great. I check fluids and put gas in it and it fired right up. Didn't have to adjust anything.

I never had a Zero cut mower before so i just drove it around to get used to it.It was great. The only problem I have is If the grass is a little wet it slides on my hill behind my house.

It's not too steep, its the front wheels... more

Great Mower!
I have cut my yard 4 times with this mower, and so far it's awesome. It's extremely fast and powerful. I bought the mulching kit and hour meter with it. Neither were difficult to put on, mulching kit was time consuming and maybe wouldn't have been as bad if two people are involved. The financing process was easy to get set up. I bought it on a Tuesday and it was delivered the next Monday. Pretty great experience with Mowers Direct!
Pros: Fast, Easy To Use, Price, I'd Buy It Again

I purchased the Toro 42" cut mower. I am very satisfied with the mower and the service provided by mowers direct. The key and service Manuel were missing. I called Mowers direct and they shipped the two items mentioned within 4 days.
The people I talked too were very helpful and took time to hear my problem. Will do busines with mowers direct in the future.
It is very important to read the Manuel before using this product if you have never used a ZTR mower.

Really Is A Timecutter
This mower is a pleasure to operate and cuts the grass evenly on my bumpy and hilly lawn. It does not suck up rocks and small limbs. I have a lot of rocks in my yard and it glides right over them. The blade sets up in the deck and this keeps them from hitting the rocks.

Great mower, very sturdy built and engineered well. Plenty of power and does not bog or slow down at all. Easy to clean and remove and replace the blades. Also very fast, I use the lowest speed and cutting time for me is... more

Muffler Burns The Grass
You better mow fast because if you pause too long you'll singe the grass, and if you stop for more than 30 seconds you'll be looking at a big dead spot....other than that, I love the mower so far.

I bought this one on my dealer's recommendation. The second time I tried to use it, it would just grind when I tried to put it into forward or reverse. Dealer came out and said it was the electric brake, so he removed the cables until he could get a new brake.

It worked awesome. The third time I tried it, it wouldn't start as if no battery. Thinking I might have left the key in the "on" position, I removed the key and charged the battery up. Same thing, no start. Now just waiting... more

I Had A Lot Of Problems
First, I paid for lift gate service. The shipping company's lift gate was inadequate so I had to find someone local with a forklift to help unload the mower.

I hadn't had the mower for 20 minutes before the drive locked up. It is the control/brake unit. It stuck with the brake locked. I figured out how to unlock it manually. The brake unit no longer works but fortunately it is stuck unlocked so I can still operate the mower. I came back to mow the lawn again a week later and the... more
