Customer Questions & Answers

why is the horse power less than what it's rated at if you keep reading in the product details

Asked by: eddie
Why is the actual hp less than advertised? It's the way the engine makers are required to do it these days. The horsepower rating is provided by the engine manufacturer and is measured before the addition of the air filter and muffler, and before the engine is mounted on a mower or some other piece of equipment. Iirc, Kohler rates this engine at 24 hp @ 3600 rpm. Toro uses it at 3300 rpm. Look up SAE J1940. I think that the newest standard. I bought an MX5050 two months ago and think it's great. So far so good.

TimeCutter MX4250 42 in. Fab 24.5 HP V-Twin Zero-Turn Riding Mower with Smart Speed is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 65.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 4250 is now a little over a year old and has 152 hours on it. I love mowing with this machine ... My 4250 is now a little over a year old and has 152 hours on it. I love mowing with this machine as it has plenty of power and does a real nice cutting job. At this point no maintenance issues other than regular oil changes and greasing the front axles. Great machine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overall good mower Starts and runs good, cuts good, very easy to use. One of the gear boxes went out and needed replacing after about 10 hours. I brought to the dealer and they swapped the boxes in an hour while I waited. Can't beat that for service! And it isn't perfect in that if you go full throttle on both levers, you'd make a circle but it's easy to learn where to hold the levers to make it go straight. Biggest issue I have is the tires, IMO, aren't wide enough. Mower comes with 7.5" tires and they should be at least 8.5". Mower does leave ruts over time near the fenceline where the tires pass the same spot. I don't mow when the ground is wet. In fact, I am shopping for a wider tire this am to put on the mower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Completely satisfied after 62 hours Prior small lawn care business owner and I have to say, even after owning much larger commercial zero turns, this is a darn well made, comfortable to operate and easy to maintain machine. The three different settings on the hydrostat are like a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd gear which I found a plus for different mowing conditions. Very comfortable seat although the only shock absorption is the soft foam in the seat and the springs beneath. I have about 5 hours of mowing per week so I do get to know the machine and although that is a good chunk of mowing for a residential machine, it does very well. Changing the oil is so simple and quick. Oil filter is easy to access as well as the fuel filter and air filter. I buy the maintenance kits from the dealer and they come with everything you need to accomplish the task. Highly recommend this little mower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Investment in a Mower On my second season with this mower. I did have one problem in the first season. The turn module went out. This made it so the engine wouldn't even turn over. I hauled it to my dealer and it was repaired in just a few days. I haven't had one problem since then. It really cut the mowing time from the tractor that I used to use. I would highly recommend this model. It did take me some time to get used to it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Haven't had it long, but am very happy so far. I am a very recent owner of my 42" zero turn timecutter mower. It seems as though I have made a good decision with this purchase. I used the build tool on toros sight to get just what I wanted. Very easy operation and I hope to give another review after I have had it for the summer season. I will have a much better feel for the machine. I am pleased with purchase to this point.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply reliable Lap bars are easy to learn to use with responsive control. High quality cut and very comfortable ride. Oil changes and routine maintenance are easy to perform. Engine provides significant power and get up and go. Only complaint is based partly on the shape of my yard...that is, the grass becomes matted and slightly rutted where the tires pass over the same tracks repeatedly.
