Grass Chute gets in way going through our gates. Any ideas for keeping it in up position to get through the gates?

We have 2 gates to get through. Holding the grass chute in up position isn't working out well. Any ideas on how to keep it in the up position until I get through the gates?
Asked by: Bobbie
Drill a small hole into outside edge of chute and use a small bungie cord to hold up.

My house sits on a 5-acre lot with a lot of trees spread out and a few small hills. Is this the right machine for me?

Asked by: Jeffhack
I do about two acres with mine and it's about the perfect size. For 5 acres I would probably go with the 50" Toro. That extra size on the deck would make a world of difference.

TimeCutter SS4225 42 in. 22 HP Zero-Turn Riding Mower with Smart Speed is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 477.

The toro was ordered through home depot. Delivered at home through a third party. After using it for 10 minutes the belt broke. When I called the third party(authorized toro dealer), they said they would have to pick it up and fix it...at the owners expense, also added that this is a wear and tear object, not covered by warranty. I look at the warranty information, it is covered by warranty. When I call toro,they say yes covered by warranty, but would have to pay for the dealer to pick it up! Go figure, extremely poor customer service, would never recommend this product to any one.

I recommend the unit as it is great piece of equipment that is easy and fun to operate for the money, however, I have to assume I found the lemon as I don't see others with issues that relate to my experience(s). Bought my SS4225 March, 2016. By late August it was in shop with mower deck bearing failure, repair was covered under warranty. Now it's spring 2017, and the unit is back in shop with oil leak (have you ever tried to get power lawn equipment repaired this time of the year?). By the way, I'm only mowing 3/10 acre and the unit is washed after every use and stored in my garage.

Only a few hours of use, so cannot speak to reliability or other long term observations. Initial impression is very good. Powerful mowing for sure. The SMART SPEED feature is nice, especially for towing yard rake, etc. In MOW (highed speed), the slow speed tight cornering is a little jerky. That may be a getting used to it item. If the grass is any kind of damp, the rear tires will spin or slide. Not sure if this is tread design, air pressure or some other issue. Comfortable, easy to operate; yes it scores high in these categories. Not a gas guzzler like the CUB CADET was... :)

It is easy, comfortable, fast to use, a very reliable machine. I mow about 2.5 acres of rather rough rocky ground not a smooth lawn. The mower is tough but today I had to replace the plastic deflector (I need to be more careful what I hit with it), it took me 10 minutes and I had to remove one accessible nut to do it. Removing the mower deck is simple, requires no tools. Oil change is easy/accessible. Runs about 2 hours on tank of fuel. I'm 75 yrs old and it is easy for me to operate,maintain and maneuver (darn near fun). PS I have no ties to Toro or Home Depot.

I bought the SS4225 from a local dealer and had to return it. It drives fine of flat surfaces, but is absolutely uncontrollable on a lawn that is bumpy (like mine). The front axle is one piece, so each wheel does not independently step over bumps, which makes it impossible to maneuver in tight spaces--one wheel goes airborne and the mower goes where you are not directing it as a result (the rear wheels drive the mower, the front wheels are simply casters that you do not steer--they move in the direction the rear wheels aim them--when they are both touching the ground). When you make turns on a bumpy lawn, both wheels rarely touch the ground at the same time (the front end having practically no weight does not help either). Also hard to keep straight on a bumpy lawn as the levers are very sensitive and the caster wheels are always reacting to bumps and moving the mower left or right while you are trying to go straight. Having said this, it works fine on the driveway, so if you have a nice flat lawn (like a golf course), it should work fine. Has plenty of power and the bagger worked well (although the chute has no indicator when a clog is occurring like my previous rider). If you want to enjoy cutting your lawn, stick with a lawn tractor or possible some other brand of ZTR mower than had wider and larger wheels with front axles that allow them to step over bumps independently.

Nice mower runs great, being this mower has only two blades it tens to leave a line of uncut grass right down the middle so if you don't mind going back over that line its great, If I had to do it again I would get a mower with three blades. also I purchased the mulch kit if the seems to leave piles of grass in places and if you don't rack it up the grass dies in that area.

I purchased this product because, even though I have a relatively small yard, my knees have decided that cutting grass in no longer an issue they want to deal with. I have always thought that my yard was to small for a riding mower, but the zero turn has made it possible to again cut my grass, and its fun to operate.
