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
by Jose, Product Expert
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

Toro 42" Time Cutter Ss 4225 Zero Turn Mower W/ 22 Hp Kohler Eng
I did a lot of research on Zero Cut Mowers. Toro had the most best reviews. I order it from Mowers Direct. It came in about 2 weeks. Very well crated. Delivery was great. I check fluids and put gas in it and it fired right up. Didn't have to adjust anything.

I never had a Zero cut mower before so i just drove it around to get used to it.It was great. The only problem I have is If the grass is a little wet it slides on my hill behind my house.

It's not too steep, its the front wheels... more

Burn Spots On The Lawn
I have run a zero turn mower to mow my lawn for the last 4 years. I found a good deal on a new Toro Timecutter SS4225 so I traded my John Deere. I noticed several brown spots began to appear in my yard after I began mowing with the Toro. A friend of mine stopped by yesterday and noticed the spots. He also just purchased the SS4225 and had noticed brown spots in his yard. He figured out it was the heat from the muffler on the mower that was burning the lawn anytime you would stop. (even if... more
Pros: Price, Easy To Store
Cons: Burns lawn, Controls are too sensitive

Great Machine!
I love pretty much everything about this mower, smooth operation, great cuts, the only thing it bothers me a bit is this rattling on the front wheels, I'm not sure if something has to be tightenedor something, other than that I've used it for more than 30 hours and it runs great!
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, I'd Buy It Again, Reliable

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

Toro Timecutter Ss4225
I bought the mower in August, and mow my yard and neighbors yard (two acres) with lots of trees. I love this machine and look forward to the next mowing.

It takes a little time to get used to using it, but every time I mow I get better. I bought some extras i.e. hour meter and mulching kit which does a GREAT job. As of now it has cut my time by 1/3.

I would highly recommend this mower and Mowers Direct.

I purchased the Toro 42" cut mower. I am very satisfied with the mower and the service provided by mowers direct. The key and service Manuel were missing. I called Mowers direct and they shipped the two items mentioned within 4 days.
The people I talked too were very helpful and took time to hear my problem. Will do busines with mowers direct in the future.
It is very important to read the Manuel before using this product if you have never used a ZTR mower.

Great Results B Some Notable Issues Right Out The Crate
Overall the Timecutter has performed well the two times I have mowed my lawn. Sturdy enough for light use in my small yard. It has many features that other lawn mowers in this class do not. I enjoy mowing now and like the results. I have noticed a few issues that are not deal killers but worth noting:

Right out of the crate the steering was out of alignment (Trim Mode). I could barely load it on the trailer and it would not go into reverse. Read the service manual online and started to... more

This Mower Has My Vote
This is a very good residential mower and I have a good sized yard (less than an acre with trees and landscaping) so it is perfect for me. If I had an acreage, I would go to a heavier duty mower that could stand up to heavier usage.

This is not a knock on this mower as it was built and priced for residential yards. I made the right choice. For the money, you will not find a better mower.
Pros: Fast, Easy To Use, Price, Features

"I buy a lot of things on line. This was the best service ever. I ordered the mower one day and had it in my driveway the next day no shipping charges. It was crated very well. Short of a serious truck wreck, handling would not damage it. It came from Illinois which is not that far from southeast Minnesota but still that is good service."

Really Is A Timecutter
This mower is a pleasure to operate and cuts the grass evenly on my bumpy and hilly lawn. It does not suck up rocks and small limbs. I have a lot of rocks in my yard and it glides right over them. The blade sets up in the deck and this keeps them from hitting the rocks.

Great mower, very sturdy built and engineered well. Plenty of power and does not bog or slow down at all. Easy to clean and remove and replace the blades. Also very fast, I use the lowest speed and cutting time for me is... more
