  5 Questions
Q: Does the pedal articulated speed work for forward and reverse?
by Kerry from West Virginia on May 11, 2016

A: Kerry - yes, the foot pedal on the Toro SW4200 (model 74784) is used to control the speed of the mower when traveling in both forward and reverse. The further you press the foot pedal down, the faster the mower will travel.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: I have a side hill that is about 10-15 degrees. Would this mower be able to handle mowing it down the sideslope or up and down the hill? The hill is a smaller part of my acre property but want to make sure to get a mower that can handle that hill. Was not sure if the steering wheel compared to the bars made a difference in the control?

Thanks for any input in advance!

by Brandon from Georgia on April 17, 2016

A: Brandon - yes, the steering wheel style zero turn mowers are much more effective for mowing hills and inclines since the front wheels are on a true steering mechanism and don't swivel independently like they would on a lap bar style zero turn. Mowing a hillside or slope is one of the main reasons for choosing a steering wheel style zero turn mower. A slope of 10 to 15 degree's is well within the operating specs for a steering wheel style zero turn. I think one of these would be ideal for what you are describing.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: They show the 79391 bagger kit for this mower will the exhaust from the muffler melt the bags?
by Jerry from Florida on March 18, 2016

A: Jerry - the exhaust from the muffler should have no impact on the grass collection bags
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: HOW HARD IS IT TO CHANGE THE OIL?
by Ed Mclain from Ohio on May 12, 2015

A: Ed - The new Toro V-Twin engine on this mower allows for tool-free oil changes with less mess, so you don't have to be a mechanic to keep on top of your own maintenance. All you have to do is pull the long drain hose out of its holder to let the oil drain, then replace it when you're finished. Tools aren't necessary! The length of the drain hose helps make for less mess, allowing you to aim where you want the used oil to go.

The Toro SW4200 steering wheel zero turn mower offers homeowners an alternative to traditional zero turn mowers. This model combines the maneuverability and time savings of a zero turn mower with the familiar ease of a steering wheel and speed control pedal, much like a car or tractor.

The Toro SW4200 has a 42-inch, twin-blade mower deck that is ideal for mowing areas where compact size is needed. The deck washout port provides quick cleaning underneath the deck when you're finished... more

Sw4200 Update
Pros:
Only used the unit a few times. Mowed well and handled uneven ground. Cut mowing time about half. Zero turn needs some constant re-learning for me. I am sure I will get more opportunities next season.

Cons:
Steering wheel is on the small-ish side, requires a spin knob or something a little larger radius. Making a quick turn equals a lot of hand over hand work.

Great Machine... Shipping Not As Good, But Resolved.
PROS...Machine works awesome, great power. Added mulching Recycler kit. No Complaints on quality.

CONS...Machine arrived with packing crate/pallet damaged. Mower shifted and BOTH rear wheels were FLAT. Impossible to get it to garage and took hours to remedy... Mowers Direct shipped new tire assemblies a week later.

Toro Zt Mower With Steering Wheel
Regular two handled zero turn mowers made both my wife's shoulders and my shoulders hurt. This one does not. I like the tilt wheel for comfort and getting on and off the mower. It starts easily and mows great. Only problem I have with it is the push button brake. I am used to the pedal brakes and have a hard time locating the button when I need it to stop-especially on any incline.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, High Quality, Reliable

Great Mower
I have been mowing my lawn's for the last 20 years with conventional lawn tractors , most recently a cub Cadet 46 inch, 20 hp, with a hydro-static transmission. During the last several years, all my neighbors have converted to zero turn mowers with levers.

This was not an option for me in as much as several years ago I suffered a stroke which left me walking with a limp and full use of only my right arm and right leg. With the aid of a knob on the steering wheel, I'm able to enjoy the... more

Easier, Quicker And Cheaper
I purchased a Toro SW 4200. It was on my door step in North Carolina within 48 hours. I couldn't believe how fast. It was $100 cheaper than buying it locally and didn't have to pay any sales tax and the freight was pre paid. It comes in a very substantial carton that takes a little while to uncrate. The assembly of the mower was super easy and took less than 15 minutes.

I needed info the Toro manual didn't supply and Mowers Direct had my answer in minutes with one telephone call.

Awesome Lawn Tractor
My new Toro mower is awesome! I have about 1 1/2 acres and this mower rips through it in no time. The ride is a little bumpy so forget about having a beer in the cup holder as it will turn to foam :-). I bought the mulcher kit and it works great but, as another reviewer suggested, make sure you sharpen the blades that come with the kit first before installation.

Also as mentioned by others it was difficult to uncrate (that baby was going nowhere during shipment) and having the lift gate... more

Perfect Mower For My Property
The mower was delivered in perfect condition and has exceeded my expectations. My yard is uneven and bumpy and has plenty of obstacles to maneuver around. The steering wheel allows for close turning in tight quarters.

I'm 6' 5" and appreciate the ease of getting on and off with the tilt steering wheel. My mowing time is cut from 1 1/2 hours with a push mower to 30 minutes. You do need to be prepared to take some time to uncrate the mower. Part of the fun.
Pros: Easy To Use, I'd Buy It Again, Fast, Exceeded Expectations

Well Worth It!
Very difficult to take off the crate. Figured out that it was easier just to drive it off, in reverse, than to try and dismantle the skid. Got the mulching kit. Of course the blades were not sharp, even though they were wrapped in several layers of cardboard.

Drove like a dream, cut even better, once I sharpened the blades. Very little amount of grass clippings showing after a run. One important thing to mention, slow down in sharp turns and if you can't, then do a loop turn. Actually fits... more

Just What I Was Looking For
I love this mower. Of course it cuts the perfect cut every time. The slopes and hill problem I used to have are all gone. I wish I had this mower years ago. The delivery guy was real cool too. Over-all, a very enjoyable experience. Thanks.

Fine Machine
After a great deal of research, I opted for the SW4200 for its capabilities, and available options. I love it! Have only used it five times, so still getting a feel for it. So far it's everything that I expected. The zero turn is great, as expected. The steering wheel verses the "paddles" is what sold me.

The 24.5HP engine, makes quick work of cutting the lawn as well. I'm very happy with this Mower, and would highly recommend it to anyone that wants a zero turn mower. I know a... more

"Your website had all the information that I needed for making the decision on this mower. It also gave me the opportunity to compare a similar product. It's like a "one stop shop " website. Anytime that I spoke with someone, I found them to be very knowledgeable, as I got the information that was needed to get everything that I needed for the order. Lastly, the tracking information, and communication was outstanding. I got everything that was ordered on the days that they were promised. This was a problem free purchase from beginning to end!!!"
