  3 Questions
Q: hi jose, who is the manufacture of the oem v twin? briggs, kawaski, or kohler
by Troy from Michigan on May 06, 2016

A: Tony - the Toro V-Twin engine is manufactured by Toro. Briggs, Kohler and Kawasaki have no involvement in the design or manufacturing of this engine.
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.

Nice Mower, Get Help Uncrating
I have about a 0.75 acre lawn with a boatload of landscaping and trees to navigate around. Nice mower, powerful, smooth cut, much better cut than my 15 year old 42 inch tractor. The smart speed and towing options are a bonus. This baby is quick, going 7 mph on my straight long runs is great. Neighbors have commented how fast it looks like I am going. Grab a sawzall and call a strong buddy to help you uncrate, though my 98 pound wife was able to help.

Great price, this mower was about $300... more

Great Mower
I have only used it once but it sure was nice and accurate. Trimming takes a little too get used to, but over all love the mower! It was a pain in the butt to get it uncrated by myself. Would suggest getting someone to help!

Great Mower For A Good Price
Great mower for a good price. Was a little disappointed it didn't come with the hour meter. Probably should add $60.00 to the mower price and just include it. It's a plug and play and for sure need it.
Pros: Fast, Price, I'd Buy It Again, High Quality
Cons: Packaging, need to crate it for easier removal

"I had a good experience however need to advise customer of the mower weight. The lift gate was helpful to get off the truck, but I needed a tractor with a front-end loader and forks on the front to get up to my house and unblock the driveway."

Excellent Mower
Awesome mower for the price. The V-Twin engine packs a mighty punch. I think it is the same if not even better than the Kawaski engine. This mower eats up the competition. My dad has a Gravely 42 inch and this mower is in my opinion comparable if not better. Taking out of the crate can be a hassle. Would you rather a damaged mower from shipping or spend a little extra getting it unboxed. This mower came ready to go with oil in it. Just add gas and connect the batter. I highly recommend PED.

Toro Zero Turn Mower
I really Like The mower with a few exceptions. It tends to pick up speed as I mow the grass. Also, there are times When 1 of the front wheels leave the ground and I'm only riding on 3. I haven't been able to figure out why as of yet.
Pros: Fast, Easy To Use, Easy To Store
Cons: Packaging
