Q: Can you get a bigger bagger or some kind of power vac for the timecutter SS4250. I live in a woods and use a pull behind now. I was hoping to get a zero turn mower with a larger vac
by Mike Ridgway from Indiana on July 24, 2015

A: Mike - sorry, but there is neither a larger capacity bagger nor a power assisted blower available for any of the Toro TimeCutter series zero turn mowers.

New Toro
Really like the new mower but it came with a right rear flat tire. I have to keep putting air in it every couple days. I am thinking it is a problem with the wheel and not the tire itself. Also, the hour meter is not working. Other that that the mower seems to perform great.

Needs Warranty Work.
Mowers Direct has this mower at a great price. Shipped on time, and the freight carrier was great.

Once I got it unloaded, I followed the instructions to get the mower set up out of the crate. It really isn't to bad. Checked oil, added fresh gas. The Mower would not start. This ended up being a dead battery, so I installed a trickle charger. I started the mower up two times after, just to have it run. It took forever to start, and ran very rough. On the third time, it doesn't even turn over.... more
Pros: Features, Easy To Use
Cons: Unreliable

Nice Upgrade And Fun
I upgraded after years of a John Deere tractor. The purchase was great. Delivery took two days longer but not an issue except delaying my excitement. Took only minutes to hook up battery and connect the lap bars. Getting it off the pallet was easy enough as you turn the front and lift up on rear and it slide off.

It does take time to get use to making turns as it is faster by far.
Going around Mulch area it hard but I need to cut an edge and then it will be easier. Actually better on slight... more

Much Needed
I have 1.5 acres with the front yard being on a pretty severe grade. The ZT mower allows me to cut at an angle or side to side with little to no slipping, although it is not recommended from the manufacturer.

Good build and easy to maintain. Worth the extra money from the 4200 or 4235 to have the bigger back, hour meter as well as the stronger engine.

A Gift Of Love For Father's Day June 20, 2015
My John Deere is 20 years old and is very slow by today's standards and the plastic hood is only a memory and replacing it is expensive to boot. My princess of many years made the John Deere sitting in the shed a reality by the purchase of the Toro Zero Turn machine. Instead of three hours of mowing a flat hour is the improvement. Thus more time to enjoy the weekend. Today it was more fun than work to cut the grass. I don't care if it uses more gas because it takes less time and does a hell... more

Love My New Zero Turn Toro
We've had a zero turn Toro mower for over 7 years and had very little trouble with it and i worked it really hard at times. We have 2 acres that we mow and it has a lot of hours on it. We decided to buy another one because this one was getting old. We gave it to our son and bought a new one from mowers direct.

I couldn't believe how fast we got it.in 5 days I had my mower. I checked with other dealers and it was going to take me 3-4 weeks to get one. i love this one just as much as my... more

Not So Great
Purchased the Time Cutter 4250 with a mulching deck on 10/17/15. The hour meter was not connected and it did not track. The dealer corrected both problems. The battery died on 11/11/15 (tested as a weak battery).

The dealer provided a new battery. Would not start on 11/12/15, had to deliver to the dealer for warranty work. The dealer has not yet determined the problem.

This mower has many nice features and appears to be very sturdy. It mows very fast and mulches very well. I am,... more
