  2 Questions
Q: Can I purchase extended warranty at a later date instead of including into sale.
by Joe from New Jersey on June 30, 2016

A: The extended warranty must be purchased when you buy the mower.
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.

Great Mower, Great Bunch Of Guys
My MX 5050 came in just like ordered. after less than 2 hours the parking BRAKE MODULE WENT OUT. Not this guys fault, they did everything to help and I'm mowing again. Thanks Mowers Direct. I'm mowing twice a week, our grass grows like crazy and this mower is fast

Not Happy
I purchased this until last fall from home depot, has only about 40 hours of running. the drive belt came off, I can find no diagram to put it back on. it isn't damaged but the dealers around me are at least two weeks back logged and would have to pick it up and deliver it, If this belt come off so easy I don't think I very much of the mower. it cuts well and fast but not if it will not pull its self! Disappointed in it so far.
Pros: Fast, Easy To Use, Quiet, Soft Ride
Cons: Difficult To Use, Unreliable, Durability

Mixed Feeling
I purchased the MX5050 mower. I payed the extra 50 dollars to have the mower delivered... the freight company only had a 30 foot trailer with a lift gate. I picked up the mower. Mowers Direct refunded my $50. Crating was as described in other reviews. I installed a mulching kit.

Zero turn is like driving a tank except more sensitive. The drive belt came off at 4 hours. No diagram except in parts list. $80 dollars later it's back on. Repairman had to remove clutch to reinstall the belt.... more

One Great Mower
Bought this mower at the end of May, so I have used it a couple of months. Shipping was excellent. Mower was delivered to my home without incident packaged as you would want it.

I have mowed once a week since I got it. the mower is smooth running and cuts very nice. Our lawn looks manicured when fresh cut. I have no complaints at this time of experience. The hydraulic fluid went low after the first use. Must have been a little air in the lines. I added enough to bring it back up o the safe... more

Received My Order Very Promptly!
My Toro MX5050 arrived by freight and was crated very well. Not sure how but had 2 small perforations on the right side seat back and 1 small hole in the left side seat back.

Puzzled how they may have happened because the mower was packed very well! The mower started with easy and mows beautifully so thank you Mowers Direct!

What A Lemon
I had the Toro SS50 for 4 years, great mower, loved it, enjoyed mowing grass. Upgraded to the MX50, very disappointed first day of cutting the left side of the deck came unhinged. I had Terpsta sales come fix it, deck continues to dislodge, the 24hp Kolher motor bogs downs, doesn't leave a clean finish cut, new upgraded heavier transmission is too aggressive and tears up the grass in turns, lower is to heavy for a nice finish cut yard. I would take the $1000 loss to go back to the SS50 with the... more
Cons: Unreliable, Low Quality, Heavy

Great Mower... Shipping Meh.
Mowers Direct makes it easy. This is a good mower for a great price. I didn't think the speed control would be useful, but I was wrong. It's a great option and makes you more comfortable getting close to stuff.

Shipping.... well, I paid the $50 extra so it would ship the same day and arrive on my day off. It ended up arriving the same day that was estimated if I hadn't paid for the expedited shipping. So that meant my wife and the baby would have to handle the delivery. That didn't go so... more
Pros: Durable, Features, Price, Exceeded Expectations
Cons: Packaging, Shipping Issues

Mowers Direct Mc5050
Mower is nice and has cut down mowing time by a third.
Negatives: It arrived well packaged but I had a little difficulty getting it off the crate especially since I couldn't get the rear wheels into neutral. I kept pushing in the transmission release pin to no avail. Only later after studying the manual did I realize the key needed to be inserted and turned on.

The second problem with the packaging is the deck bolt on the right side was jammed over the frame rim and the deck was... more
