Q: Is there a bag attachment for this model. If so how many bags and how big are the bags?
by Chris from North Carolina on March 21, 2016

A: Chris - the Toro TimeCutter 74721 would use the Toro #79391 twin bagger: 79391 bagger

Q: Can I buy an arm rest kit for the 2016 toro SS4225? If so, What and where?
by C. E. Kirkland from Georgia on March 20, 2016

A: C.E. - unfortunately, the seat on the Toro SS4225 (model 74721) is not designed for use with an arm rest kit.
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.

The Toro SS4225 zero turn riding mower offers a 42” wide mower deck and powerful 22HP Kohler engine, which makes it great for wide open areas. Also the 2 anti-scalp wheels on the deck will allow it to float over the turf to prevent scalping of your lawn.

The Toro TimeCutter SS4225 features the Toro Smart Speed™ control system. This exclusive Toro innovation lets you choose different speed ranges with the flip of a lever without changing the engine or the blade speeds. Mow large open areas... more

I Bought This Mower This Time Last Year From Ped
I bought this model last year from PED, and I love it. You want to pay the $50 for lift gate if you don't have a pallet jack at home. The pallet is 7' long and double stacked. It's packed very well. I cut once every 10 days (1.5 acres). It takes about 45 mins.

I'd suggest buying after-market blades so you get an even cut without stripping if you're using the mulch kit cause Toro blades aren't even close to top 10 blades.

I ordered a timer on Amazon and installed it in minutes. Order the oil... more

"My wife ordered it for my retirement fun and it arrived in a few weeks as planned. It's actually a joy to drive for me after my orthopedic doctor gave me the okay to ride it. I popped a tire off its bead; but with a rope, wrench, air compressor, and 5 minutes of my time. Overall I'm pleased with my mower I'm looking for "Honeycomb Style All-Terrain Tires" like what can be installed on the John Deer Zero Turn Mowers (exclusive)"

Warning - Bad Product
Please don't waste your money.

Season 1, a bad battery - I checked the date on it, and they had sold me a new mower with an expired battery. I guess they save a couple bucks. Ran for two mowings, won't start, to the shop it goes, $200 repair.

Season 2 won't start again, back to the shop it must go. My yard is a half acre, so not like it has had that much mowing time. For $3,000, I expected more. By the way, I tried to post a review on the Toro site, they denied it, said it didn't meet... more

Should Not Have Waited
Before this mower it was taking approximately 5 hours to edge and mow my lawn. Now I can edge and trim around the trees in 45 minutes and can mow in 40! it is great! I wish I would have purchased this mower 5 years ago!

It is super fast, and let's be honest- it is fun like driving a Bobcat.

I'm sure there are downsides but as of now the only thing I can think is it takes up more space than my push mower.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, I'd Buy It Again, Durable

Love It
I purchased a home with 1 acre last august. I have been using a 21" cut self propelled walk behind mower from my previous home. It was taking me 4hrs to cut my lawn! I now cut the lawn in 1hr on the medium speed setting and have a blast doing it. The other day I mowed around a ground hog hole! This thing is awesome, everyone loves it, and it makes mowing fun.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, High Quality

Easy Rider
Due to my age this is a painless riding mower. After five cuts I'm still not used to the controls, very sensitive.
The rear tires could have been wider with deeper tread. They spin if u r not careful and damage the turf.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Fast, Easy To Store
Cons: Tires, , The engine smokes upon start. Need wider tire with deeper treads

Did my research on all the 42 inch cut Zero Turns and I can tell you that I am very satisfied with this one. I cut a 1/2 acre weekly and enjoy every minute.

Nice Mower
Very satisfied with the mower. The lawn looks great after mowing. It is also very fast. One knock would be that the height adjustments are in half inch increments only.
Pros: Fast, I'd Buy It Again, High Quality

Was Happy, Now Disappointed
I purchased this mower after some research comparing to other name brands and the Toro had the most positive reviews. While I was excited to get this mower, my excitement turned to disappointment.

After just four times cutting the yard, the mower's electric brake module goes out and it won't move. I had the mower for 2 months and already it's in the shop. I really am hoping this is just a fluke and not a scenario of things to come. It performed just fine until this.

Battery Died After 3rd Use(3 Weeks)
I was happy with my new Toro mower until I tried to mow my lawn on the 4th occasion(4 weeks after purchase). On this occasion I turned the key and absolutely nothing. I took the battery to Advanced Auto Parts and it had no registered activity! How could this happen?

They kindly charged the battery for six hours and I was able to cut my yard. I have tried to contact a local Toro certified repair dealer but they declined to service my mower since I purchased this on line. What good is my... more

Great Mower Once We Got It Running !!!!
Rolled mower off the pallet. Followed all instructions. Mower would not start. I had to carry it 30 miles to a dealer, he had it for 2 weeks waiting for parts. Electric brake was faulty. Once I got it back home and running it was great. Warranty covered all but freight on the parts....ridiculous!!!

Quality Issues Out Of The Box
Shopped for months and was so excited to get the mower. Had a 28" craftsman rider for years and wanted something to reduce mowing time while improving quality of the cut. Unfortunately out of the box the brake control module was bad.

The module is an integral component to make sure all of the various safety systems are working. When the module is bad you cannot get the mower to start. Now I need to pay someone to come pick up the mower and have it serviced.

It will be 2-3 weeks... more
