Customer Questions & Answers

Why is there a $299 price difference in Torro's MSRP?

Model 4235 Torro Timecutter KAW motor 42" has MSRP of $2,700.00. Your same model list for $2,999.00. Is the $299 over MSRP your profit margin? Can I get this mower from your store any closer to the $2,700.00 MSRP listed by Torro?
Asked by: Anonymous
the deck is the difference you may be talking about. one model has a stamped deck and one has a welded deck. one is an mx and one an s .

will this mower do well on a slopped lawn? area 1/2 acre

presently mowing with John Deere LA135 and cut is very uneven
Asked by: Anonymous
yes, adjust smart speed to low and make sure to also adjust the anti scalp wheels on the deck to your cut height.

How does the Toro TimeCutter MX4260 work in soft wet conditions

About half my yard is very low, wet ground. The soil is really muck and not dirt. Never-the-less grass does grow on it and it needs to be mowed. Will the Toro TimeCutter MX4260 work okay in these conditions or will it bog down?
Asked by: Anonymous
dont think it will do well in those conditions because of the speed and power it has. i had that same senario at my last house and i had to weed eat that area. it was too soft for even a push mower.

can the toro mx 4260 be fitted with larger rear tires

Asked by: bman6965
The width of the tires are optimized to maximize trimmability and still provide great traction. The diameter is limited by the capacity of the transmission. It is designed to only accommodate a tire with a maximum diameter of 18”.

TimeCutter MX4260 42 in. 23-HP Kawasaki V-Twin Zero-Turn Riding Mower with Smart Speed is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 44.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does great!! I have about 20 hours on this mower so far. The fabricated deck works great especially in high grass or if the yard is wet. Wet grass does not stick to the inside of the deck. Plenty of power, and the fast or slow speed switch works great. 4 mph in slow speed, 7 mph in fast speed. Wide open spaces run it in high speed, or if your yard is full of trees select the slow speed. So far so good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mx4260 Purchased this mower and have 3 runs under my belt, I can say it puts a great cut on my yard. Mower is fast and shoots the grass out of the deck very hard. Mower also in my opinion is quieter than most mowers I have herd but that may be because it only has 2 blades, most mowers i have herd have 3 blades so that could be the reason. The Kawasaki engine should be a long runner, runs smooth and starts very easy. The mx series have some nice upgrades over the SS series, one being the heavy duty deck (think if you hit something at 7mph with a stamped deck it will probably dent) the welded deck comes with a big beefy steel lip to protect it. Seat has arm rests and comes with an hour meter, also you get a thick rubber floor mat and bigger engine and transmission. Overall very happy with my purchase and in my opinion you can't go wrong with a toro for a homeowner.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very good cut strong engine Took about a hour to get the hang of driving it, but it cuts mowing time in half mark n.c

Rated 5 out of 5 by from it really does cut your mow time ! i have a pretty big lot appx. 1 1/2 acres took me almost 3 hours with my rider. this zero turn time cutter cut it down to 1 hr and 30 minutes. it dont seem like your even working now because it is so easy and comfortable to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Machine Cut the grass soon after receiving this mower. Mower cuts nice and has lots of power. Learning to drive was pretty easy after a few laps around the yard. I would highly recommend and would purchase this mower again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent choice, wonderful features Deciding which ZTR mower, to buy for my very first time, became a major project, but after carefully researching the reviews, and reading customer reviews, I decided on this unit, and I feel that my choice, could not have been any better, I really enjoy using my ZTR mower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great mower, wish I had bought a Toro 10 years ago If you pick up this mower from freight carrier be sure to have them load it with front of carton facing gate on your trailer, it will save a big head ache getting it out of box and off trailer. That being said everything else went very smooth setting it up. Be sure to check oil level, as mine was not at full mark to begin with. Added on mulch kit last week and getting ready to add stripping kit now that it has arrived. Be sure to order part # 121-5702 as this is stripping kit for fabricated deck. Mowing grass is no longer a major pain, in fact I kinda enjoy it now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality of cut is impressive The MX4260 is a solidly built homeowner zero turn mower which has an impressive quality of cut. The engine is very powerful, yet smooth running. The fabricated deck gives the mower a more heavy-duty appearance and feel. The frame and steel components all seem thick and able to take a beating for a long time. Even though the mower is heavy-duty for a homeowner unit, it has a surprisingly small footprint, and fits easily into my shed with room to spare. The two-speed feature works great; I find that I tend to keep it in the slower speed. So far I'm very pleased with this mower.
