  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.

Toro Mx505 And Kohler 7000 Series Engine - A Perfect Combination
Bought an MX505 w/Kohler 7000 series 24hp engine 3 months ago. Could not be happier with the way the mower cuts, handles, comfortable seating, heavy-duty build quality and that wonderful Kohler engine. I installed the mulch kit before using for the first time.

In grass taller than it really should be for this set up, mower never labors and cuts easily and cleanly without leaving clumps or visible clippings. The Kohler engine uses no oil, uses little fuel compared to other mowers I have... more

Would Not Buy Again
I have had this mower about 4 months with about 10 hrs. so far. This mower has been a nightmare. Broke the first blade belt at about 4 hours and broke the second at about 8.5 hrs. Since the unit was delivered, there have been random occasions when starting the engine that a large cloud of white smoke comes out the exhaust.

Have had two occasions where the mower would not start, only click. Service dept. at local Toro service center told me that Toro has had problems with some of these... more

Happy Buyer
Have put 8 hours on my new machine. First off, how they ship for free blows my mind. Mower arrived in perfect condition, the delivery driver was very nice and helped me wheel it into my garage.

After using it for 2 weeks, I am happy with my purchase, the mower puts out a very nice cut leaving nice lines in the grass. I've used many zero turn mowers before and this one is very gentle on the turns ripping up very little grass.

The only con I see is that it doesn't not operate well on... more

Great Mower
I have used this mower 4 times now and here are my thoughts so far:

As some folks have mentioned, it was a bit of a pain to un-crate however, the mower arrived in perfect shape. A good crate is worth its weight in gold. A hammer, a electric screwdriver and a saw is all will make short work of un-packing.

Check all the fluids and checked the torque on the blade bolts, engine mounting bolts etc., all good. Oil level was ok. Added fuel, hooked up the battery and started right up. The Kohler... more

Great Machine
I've mowed my lawn twice and am very satisfied with this mower. The three speed hydrostat is a handy feature. It certainly makes driving in tight conditions much easier.

The machine has plenty of power. I'm glad I got the Kohler engine. The mowing deck does a great job and I see few clippings. If you need a great mower, buy this one.

I will say that I was somewhat frustrated with the packing crate. The delivery driver politely set the pallet right where I wanted it. I opened the box and... more
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Fast, Reliable
Cons: Packing Crate

Great Mower
I cut about 1-1/2 acres of nicely landscaped residential property. Lots of trees, planting areas, fences, berms, etc. I used a 50" Troy-Bilt zero turn mower for ten years prior to getting the Toro.

It did the job well for several years with minor problems (cables supporting the deck broke numerous times until I replaced them with chain) and a major problem over the past couple years with the PTO not engaging after the cutting about half of my yard.

It was an entry level mower and... more

Great Value For Me
Have 1.3 acres to cut and did cut it with Troy-Bilt 42" lawn tractor that was/is a good machine. Took over 2 hours to cut, now cut in 1 hour with the Toro. My sister has had a Toro Zero Turn mower 12 years with solid performance and that was an important factor in my decision to get this one.

Still getting used to the speed it cuts and using the levers to steer but am getting used it it quickly. I really like the way it cuts the grass into fine clippings. Due to the lifting action of... more

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

Excellent Mower
After the church saw me struggling with my aging John Deere (20+ year old unit), they purchased an MX 5050 to provide weekly lawn care for about 4 acres. Going from a tractor style to zero turn took about 30 minutes on the slow gear. After getting the hang of things, things couldn't be any easier in maneuvering around the 45 mature live oaks and majestic red oaks. Plenty of power and precise handling through any dense grass scenario. I have about 20 hours now on it and I look forward each time... more

This is the second Toro ZTR that I have owned. I wore out the engine on the first one. (Briggs) The new mower has the same solid feel, a better ride, better engine, and wider cutting width.

I tested other brands and found them less desirable in performance, comfort or price. Toro was my choice for quality with a reasonable price.
