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
Convert mower to a mulcher and the chute is removed. Your clippings are recycled into fertilizer for your lawn.

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?

Colorado Springs
Asked by: Jeffhack
Every answer is correct. please take note and see if a 42 inch will work? yes. but will a larger unite work better? Yes. Bigger is better. so now look at the cost and if you can afford to buy the bigger unit I would go bigger. do you have a building that will fit the larger unit? can you lift to service the larger unit? 42 inch fit on my trailer. if you can not haul your Riding lawnmower to get services do you know what it will cost to have someone come to your location and repair? do you know what it will cost to pick up your unit? what about what it will cost to bring back to you? I replace my blades with sharper blades after every 3rd or 4th cut. I purchased a lift for my 42"

TimeCutter SS4225 42 in. 22 HP Zero-Turn Riding Mower with Smart Speed is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 525.

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.

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.

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... :)

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.

We really debated whether or not we wanted to spend this much money on a mower but mowing our lawn as well as our elderly fathers was becoming time consuming and exhausting. Decided to take the plunge when we received a 24 month no interest offer for purchase over $1999 and have been extremely glad we took the leap. The learning curve of maneuvering the machine was very minimal and for now it's actually fun to mow the yards, it takes less time and it isn't exhausting. We've been very happy with the cut it's making on the lawns as well. If you're on the fence whether or not to get a zero turn mower and you're able to, I don't think you'd regret purchasing this mower.

Home Depot, on the other hand, not so much. They loaded it on my trailer for me. I assumed (yes, the assume word) the key, owners manual, etc. would be under the seat. Got home and there was NOTHING. No key, no manual. Battery was not connected (not to mention dead I found out later). I called the store and they told me they would mail keys, etc. to me. They did send me one key and an owners manual they had printed from the internet. No per-printed manual, no deck water hose connection, etc. Again, I like the mower. If you buy from Home Depot, be prepared to to ALL pre-use services yourself.

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.
