Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 52 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good product and would recommend to anyone. Purchased this mower in June 2010. I mow several yards and this has been a great product. This was my first zero turn and absolutely love it. Has held up well even for as much mowing as I do with it. I use it at least 5 hours of mowing time a week and sometimes in rough terrain. The only complaints I have are that the front bearings wore out rather quickly. Also there are no grease fittings for the blade housing. Although I haven't had any problems with it yet, it just makes me concerned. April 14, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by this product is very good Ok. I have used toro products a long time. This mower is a good mower. The deck is a little short on performance. If you are not careful you can scalp your grass very easy. This does not happen with my older toro zero turn. Could use a stronger engine. These are my only complaint on the mower it's self. I bought the twin bagger. Witch was a pain to install and it clogs all the time. And is very dusty. This is my first bagger so not sure if it's. Always like that with baggers. But I get extremely dirty due to the dust. And the bagger leaves a 2 inch line of grass on the ground no matter how empty the bagger is very disappointed in this setup. October 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very happy with the quality of my new toro I have a SS4260, the quality and build of the mower is outstanding. It has the Kawasaki engine and I am very happy with it's performance. I have had two toro personal pace mowers and the reliability of those is what made me look to a toro rider. The cut is exceptional, no scalping. Bought thru Homedepot with the white glove delivery. The dealer they sent it to was very good and explained everything. I couldn't be happier. I put down fertilizer so the grass would grow faster, cutting the grass is fun!!! October 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I love this mower I finally got my zero turn Toro and I love it. With 3/4 of an acre, I can knock it out in 35 minutes. After a short learning curve it is a breeze to control. I also got the twin bagger and mulch kit. I installed the bagger myself in about 40 minutes and it is a snap to remove which I have to do to put it in my shed. Got up all the leaves easily. Cleanup is easy by attaching the water hose to the deck and run it for a couple of minutes. Can not find anything to complain about. December 31, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Stay away I purchased this mower 15 months ago, and it has been nothing but trouble. Thank God, Home Depot took it back, and gave me a Cub Cadet in its place. I don't know where the quality went with Toro, but they don't build em like they used to. The build quality on the Cub Cadet appears better, and the cut is great. Will have to wait and see how my new machine holds up. December 26, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by One major flaw When I push both arms forward as far as they will go, I expect the mower to go straight. It doesn't and steers to one side which makes it hard to hold a straight line. November 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great design, fun and effective machine. I ordered this with the bag collection and after putting this all together, was really impressed by the smart design. The bagging is equal and collection effective and the unloading of material a piece of cake. I love this little mower and seems to be built strong. Spend the extra dough for the Kawasaki Engine. With this, it will last for decades! One little negative.. Toro, I heard your nuts and bolts were off in size and number for the bag attachment and I agree.. I made it work but not without some compromise. Fix this and you will have all 5 stars! April 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great mower Easy to use. Feels solid and stable. Mows great, high vac stands the grass and picks up the leaves for a manicured cut. Constructed very well. Choice of engine brands. Like the Kaw. February 6, 2012
