Since there are no wheels on the mower deck on this width mower, does it scalp on an uneven lawn?

For a leaf mulcher attachment

Where can I get an adapter to attach a hose to a pull behind leaf mulcher.
Asked by: KF
We do not make an adaptor. It is possible another company does but we have not worked with any to develop one to make sure it works with our mowers and is safe.

TimeCutter SS3216 32 in. 452 cc Hydrostatic Zero-Turn Riding Mower with Smart Speed is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wrong mower for me I wish I liked this mower more. It is my first ZRT and we bought over a year ago. The deck cracked without a serious user mishap. I took the deck off and it is feather light. It will crack again and may not be fixable this time. I should have done better research and bought one of several more costly mowers with fabricated decks. This mower would be appropriate for cleanly mowing a couple acres of well tended lawns. We use it on six acres of second home property which does get a little overgrown when we aren't there for a month. Overall, I do not like spending this much and having the manufacturer save a few bucks by giving me a deck sure to fail eventually.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! Could not be happier with my new Toro... This is my first riding mower and yes, it does take a bit of practice to turn properly (about 15-20 min for me). But once you do this, no problem at all. My cutting time has been cut in half after only 3 mowings and I'm sure time will be cut further with more experience. Mower starts right up, easy to adjust blade height and speed. Cut slower to obtain a more uniform cut. Great looking yard after mowing. Selected the 32 inch size as I can mow between our garden boxes and is much easier to store. Best part is I no longer come in the house out of breath and tired after mowing. It's really a pleasure to cut grass!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent choice for a medium to large size lawn I have owned my Toro ZT mower for 2 years now, and I look forward to mowing my 8000 sq. ft. of lawn with it. Fits through my 40" gate easily. Mows very evenly. I have used mowers and tractors from a number of manufacturers over the past 50 years, and this one is at the top of my list for dependability, ease of use, and time saving. I didn't buy the mulching option, and in tall grass, the clippings don't discharge very evenly. With this mower, it is easy to mow more often and avoid excessive clippings!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from TimeCutter is a good name This is my second 30 inch class zero turn mower, and my FIRST TORO, My first zero turn cut my mowing to less than half the previously required time, and the TORO, even without trying cuts several more minutes off the time required to do all my mowing. AND leaves a smoother looking job when I am finished. This is the first mower that I have ever owned that felt truly stable when I had to work on a slope. Because of having many obstacles to mow around, I do all my mowing in the low (trim and tow) range, and only use the high speed range to travel from my mowing area to the compost area to dump the bags.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Very Fine Mower! I have owned it for a year and a half and have no complaints at all. It starts right up, does a great job mowing. I love the turning capabilities and ease of use with the controls (since I got used to it). It took about one time mowing through my whole lawn and I was used to it and could handle it very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product has what I was looking for. Although I've only used it 3 times so far, I'm getting more comfortable and becoming familiar on how a Zero Turn can do the job. As far as cutting, I'm presently using the mulching attachment and I've never seen grass so finely mulched. Being tall, 6'6'', the tall seat was a must and it's quite comfortable. Am looking forward#?# to fall and picking up the leaves with the bagging kit. Main purpose in obtaining such a mower was the leaves, but now I can have fun doing the yard all year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed The only reason I rated Dependability as "GOOD" is that I have not had the mower long enough for it to prove itself. But if it comes anywhere near to the performance of my old Toro walk-behind it will be fine. I have a pretty typical suburban lot; no way at all to justify a 42" machine. But with age, it has been getting harder and harder to mow the place on foot. I have tried the 30" class riders (conventional steering) and they were like trying to drive a semi in the back yard. This unit answers my needs; I am glad to have it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Built for durability The dealer I went to told me up front that he did not sell junk. If you want a 5-year lifespan riding mower, go to another store. The deck is built with twice the thickness of any other I have previously owned or have considered recently. The deck and all parts of this machine were built with durability in mind. The wash-out port for the deck will prolong the life of this mower for many, many more years than the competitors. The engineering is superb, in my opinion. I have owned a couple of other riding mowers in the last 12 years. The deck wore out on one and the other developed mower deck leveling issues. I live on .3 acre and the lawn looks as smooth as silk. Now, if my neighbors want to keep up with me on lawn maintenance they will need a Toro mower also!
