  2 Questions
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.

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.

Great Mower
After a lot of research I decided to purchase this mower, and I am glad I did. I have 2 acres that I used a pull behind previously to cut. Over 2 hours to cut with that, but my first use with the SWX5050 and I was done in 45 minutes.

I have slopes, tight areas, and rough patches in my lawn. This mower handled everything I threw at it. This machine is awesome and would not hesitate to purchase it.

1 Month And Back At Dealer
Bought this mower because my wife wanted the steering wheel and I wanted zero turn and got this as a compromise. After a month and a half, the steering went out and it wouldn't turn to the right. And the left-rear tire drags and messes up the yard. I wish I would have went with the lever zero turn instead of steering wheel!
Pros: Easy To Use
Cons: Low Quality, Durability, Expensive

Great Mower
I am a big person and I can not fit on a regular riding mower but with this mower I have plenty of room to get on and off. I use to have to wait for my kids to mow my lawn with my old mower but with this mower I can mow my lawn myself.

The mower works great and I mow my lawn in half the time than we use to. The hardest thing I had with this mower was getting it out of the packing crate.

First 1.1 Hours, It Worked Great
After uncrating the mower, reading the manual and making sure to follow all the do's and dont's started mowing. Worked great for the first 1.1 hours and then I shut it down to fill it up with gas, went to start it back up and nothing but clicks.

Took it into to my local dealer and the starter hand gone out. After about a week it was fixed and haven't had a problem since - crossing my fingers no other surprises happen.

Great Serivce, Great Delivery. Great Price.
Delivery: I got lift-gate service to the front of my garage and there were no problems with delivery. A damage inspection is recommended but you can only see the outside of the crate and the carrier does not wait around for you to open it. There was no significant damage to the outside of the crate and no damage to the mower. Carrier was SAIA.

Unpacking: It is a bit difficult to get out of the crate. I cut/ripped the cardboard away with a hammer and nail puller and started removing screws... more
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Price, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Packaging, Deck Hanger Design

"When i called, the lady was very courteous and answered all my questions satisfactorily. The website was a bit cumbersome to place my order until i figured out i had not finished registration (it did not tell me). After i did that, i was able to order online without a problem."
