Expensive Junk
Blades bend too easily and seem too soft. Need sharpening often. Rubber plug keeps falling out and doesn't fit well.

Happy With New Bagging System
I recently purchased the OEM-190-180A twin bagging system for my Toro LX427 (2009). Assembly took about 30 minutes and was pretty easy with just basic tools. Properly sliding the system over the chute was the trickiest part. I did not need to make any modifications to the LX427.

I've used the system twice now for bagging grass clippings. It works just fine. I purchased the system more for collecting maple leaves in the fall, but I don't anticipate any difference in performance with... more

Great Tractor, But Come On Toro.....
Nice, strong bumper, easy to install. Why Toro didn't install this when new is a mystery to me. They all should have this!!!

Digs Up The Yard
Would love this mower except for one big problem. When turning sharply, it digs up a rut in the yard, especially on a slight grade.

I have tried letting air out of the tires, which helped slightly. Appears to me to be a lack of suspension in the front. Sharp edge of tires makes it worse.

Mike,
The folks at Toro may be able to recommend a different tire that will give you better results- you can give them a call on their Tech Support line at (888) 384-9939 (toll free).

Is This A Toro Part?
I thought I was ordering a Toro brand mulch kit that would fit my 42" rider but instead I was sent a universal kit that that is not even made to fit the Toro.

How do I know this?? Prior to buying this kit I stopped by Lowe's and the sales manager told me that this universal kit would not work and that I would need to order a Toro brand mulch kit from him.

Don,
Accessories for Toro are made by the same company that makes accessories for MTD. This kit is the official one sold by Toro for their LX 42 series mowers. It also fits some MTD mowers.

Toro does not allow us to put their name on anything not distributed by them, so you can be confident that you are getting the genuine item, no matter what the guy at Lowe's says.
