Q: Who does the warranty work? Where do I take it for maintenance to keep from voiding the warranty?
by David Brown from Missouri on March 25, 2016

A: David - warranty work, parts or other repairs, should they ever be required, can be performed at any Toro authorized service center in your area
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.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: What is the difference between this model 74730 and model 74631 both 50 inch mowers
by Everett from Michigan on May 12, 2015

A: Everett - the model 74631 is a 2014 model has a the two setting Smart Speed control system, while the model 74730 is the 2015 model and has the updated three setting Smart Speed control system.

Very Fast Toro!
Couldn't believe how fast the Toro ss5000 was I drive a John Deere z235 at work and thought it was fast but now that I have my Toro I am pretty please with its performance. So far I have done five yards with the Toro and let me tell you I have cut by work in half, the cuts are nice and need lots of power with the Kawasaki engine. Cons so far are the flats on front tires but the the slime liquid to avoid future problems other then that great mower.

This Thing Sucks
I live in WI and my family got this one and it never works and we have only had 3 years and we have spent way to much money on this peace of crap... If you wants some advice... Don't buy this ####.

Great Mower!
This is my first zero turn mower. I mow 2.5 acres with a lot of turns and close work. I love it after the first mowing. I especially wanted the Kawasaki engine. The oil drain is not convenient, but usable. The engine is responsive and powerful. Great mower, well built.
Pros: I'd Buy It Again, Durable, Reliable, Price

Don't Buy This Mower, It's Junk
I bought this exact mower 3 years ago and have been moving it one mile between my mothers house and mine. So I purchased another one to have one at each house, lazy me. Waste of more than $3000. I used it 3 time, please let me say it again 3 times, 45 minuets each time and now it's dead turn the key and nothing.

Now I have to transport it an hour away to have it fixed. Hoping for some help on the phone or online but no, i have to find a Toro Dealer. 3 years ago they made good product... more
Pros: Looks Nice
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable, Bad Instructions, Expensive

Happy With My New Toro!
I was glad to get the online price and free delivery. The freight delivery was on time, too. I broke it out of the shipping crate and took it for a spin around my pasture. So far so good. I'll call if there are any questions.

Friends Want To Mow My Lawn
I've had this mower for a couple months now and have had 4 other people volunteer and willingly mow my front acre of pasture-lawn. :) it is rather fun and easy with the zero turn and bagger. Shipping and price were excellent.

Amazing Mower
I had never driven a zero turn mower. It was so easy to learn. The mower is so fast. I am mowing my yard twice as fast as I was with my John Deere My son borrowed my new mower. He liked it better than the $10,000 zero turn Kobota he had borrowed from his wife's grandfather. My son says the Toro is faster than the Kubota.

Do Your Homework
I looked at several zero-turn lawn mowers and after comparing them, reading reviews and talking to people who owned the mowers I compared, the Toro time cutter was second to none. Ordered it and within two days it was here.

The best price combined with, no tax & no shipping saved me several hundred dollars. I simply followed the instructions and started cutting my lawn. I wish I would have bought this 10 years ago, it would have saved me a lot of time.

I now mow my lawn in half the... more

First zero turn mower. Mowing about 3 acres and saves about 1/2 the time. Cuts very good. Took a few times to get used to operating it but now my wife mows. The Kawasaki engine is the way to go. Awesome machine. Highly recommend.

Ss 5000 Zero Turn
Purchased in April 2016 have 15.2 hours on the mower, to get to the point the auto safety brake module failed,so you will not be able to move the machine. Spoke to the dealer who was very helpful, he informed me that the failure rate on this brake module is very common.

The module was replaced under warranty, but Toro won't cover transportation to and from the dealer for the repair. I like the mower but this auto brake is a poor design and it will fail. Something to think about before you... more
