Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 42 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great mower! This isn't the top of the line mower, but for those who mow once a week at their homes and like a very nice clean cut looking lawn and like saving time doing so, this is the mower for you. You don't have to break the bank either. So many reviews of ZT mowers out there are by people who mow all day, every day and need something that can handle the day in and day out abuse of a commercial machine. They make anything other than the top of the line mowers appear to be garbage, but they are wrong. If you are just looking to mow your home and have a little acreage, this mower will do you just fine. May 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by my second one after 13 years with the first Z-turn Toro I bought my first Toro Timecutter zero turn in 2002. it still runs great, tires are like new, and the only reason I replaced it was the mower deck started to rust out. this new one is lighter, faster, and just as great as the first one. these are excellent for home use and I cut about 2/3 of an acre in about 10 minutes...excellent cut, I bought the extra mulch kit for both, and there are not clippings and I don't need to bag anything.. a first class mower.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 3rd Year of Ownership I am on my 3rd season for this mower, I have had zero issues other then 1 front tire keeps coming off the rim :( I think it simply has a slow leak, this is no reflection on the overall mower performance.. I mow about 1.5 acres at my place and it is a pretty hard area, the old Lawn Tractor was also a 42" cut and it would take me about 3-3.5 hours to do the grass. After I learned how to not run over everything in the yard :) it now takes about 1 hour and 20 minutes to do the grass.. I have never even used the high speed option hehehe. As mentioned in another review, most of these reviews are written by professional landscapers who basically think if it isn't $5000 you might as well not buy it.. Myself I cut the grass as little as I can get away with :) and this mower works fast and easy.. So yes after two full seasons starting on my third I would recommend this mower... May 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 50+ hours - great cut, and quick Purchased in 2014, going on the 2nd year now. Starter i'm not happy with. Doesn't engage on the first key turn, but hasn't missed a beat on the 2nd. That is the only Issue. Love the Cut, Fast and easy to use. I now have over 50 hrs on the machine, and with the bagging system this yard looks great. May 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AMAZING!!!!!!! Can't believe I push mowed an hour and a half when this mower could do it in 20 minutes!!!!!! And it makes the yard look better to boot. I even mow my neighbors yard just for fun!!!! May 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great mower This is one awesome mower. I did a lot of research and decided on a zero turn and I am just thrilled with it. It took a bit to get used to the handles to turn it but I now look forward to cutting my lawn. Keep up the good work and service May 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Time Cutter Indeed! I was on the fence for a while in comparison of a zero turn and a tractor mower. One of the biggest things I was looking for was a mower that could fit through a 4 foot gate. After doing all of the measurements, I discovered that this mower will make it through the gate if I lift the thrower up. To my surprise, the thrower is quite flexible and I can go through the gate without even having to lift it up. My mowing job before getting this TimeCutter was an hour and a half with a self propelled mower. It is now 15 minutes. It was love at first mow! It didn't take long to get used to the controls either, which is another bonus. I was a bit nervous about running into things, but on the slower setting I can now go around trees, along my fence and in corners with ease. September 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great mower Toro Purchased this mower in 2014. Is a great mower. Does a great job cutting, would recommend the bagging system for leafs and grass collecting. Quick when it's need, but cuts like a pro too. My neighbors even have commented how nice the yard looks. January 4, 2015
