Q: Does this have hour meter and gas gauge?
by Josh from North Carolina on May 11, 2016

A: Josh - the Toro model 74793 mower does not come with an hour meter as standard equipment, but the Toro #116-5461 hour meter can be purchased separately and easily installed on the mower. There is no gas gauge, but there is a fuel presence window in the left side pod that allows you to see how much fuel is left in the tank. And the seat of this mower is not adjustable.

Q: I have a side hill that is about 10-15 degrees. Would this mower be able to handle mowing it down the sideslope or up and down the hill? The hill is a smaller part of my acre property but want to make sure to get a mower that can handle that hill. Was not sure if the steering wheel compared to the bars made a difference in the control?

Thanks for any input in advance!

by Brandon from Georgia on April 17, 2016

A: Brandon - yes, the steering wheel style zero turn mowers are much more effective for mowing hills and inclines since the front wheels are on a true steering mechanism and don't swivel independently like they would on a lap bar style zero turn. Mowing a hillside or slope is one of the main reasons for choosing a steering wheel style zero turn mower. A slope of 10 to 15 degree's is well within the operating specs for a steering wheel style zero turn. I think one of these would be ideal for what you are describing.

Toro Sw5425
Delivery was quick. I received this mower two weeks ago and had to operate it before I would write this review. I am pleased with the ease of assembly when it arrived. Connected the battery, checked the oil and added fuel and it started right up. I noticed when the battery was connected the parking break locked on. Make sure you have rolled the mower off the pallet before you connect battery or you will not be able to move it.

I only have one gripe to the engineers. ALL mowers are built to... more

Excellent Mower - Poor Shipping Carrier
Received the shipment today and put together a very nice mower and mulching kit. However R&L shipping carrier spoiled the experience on Friday by arriving over an hour late (6pm) with a trailer full of palates preventing the driver from offloading the mower.

An entire day of two people waiting for a shipment that couldn't be done. Long holiday weekend later and their driver was able to offload on second try. Mower was crated very well to survive all the shipping and it works great.

So Far, I Like The Mower.
It is a short story, because I only mowed with it one time. I broke my hip the next day. Looking forward to using it again.

Excellent Choice
Received the mower in a crate, (very well crated). Only had to assemble steering wheel,seat and grass shoot. Cuts grass perfectly, no scalping. Mows around trees and bushes quicker than old mower. Love the zero turn action with steering, doesn't slide into ditch (like stick drive) when yard is wet. Very happy with purchase.

There were two cons to this purchase. Delivery was three days later than confirmed. (Not "mowers direct") this was Old Dominion freight whose dispatcher lied... more
