Customer Questions & Answers

Does this mower leave burned spots?

I noticed in the reviews of the Arien brand of ZTR mower several people commented that if you stop the mower for any length of time while on the grass heat from the muffler will burn the grass. Does this mower have this problem?
Asked by: Anonymous
No it does not. The only problem I have seen is if I turn to quickly I can tear the grass, but that's because of me.

Customer Reviews

TimeCutter SS4260 42 in. 21.5-HP Kawasaki V-Twin Zero-Turn Riding Mower with Smart Speed is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 59.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I wish I would have gotten this years ago I entered the zero steer market with caution and wanted a machine with a commercial quality engine and one that cut and bagged well. I had a Honda rider before that did very well. However the Toro Z4235 with the 22 hp Kawasaki engine far exceeded my expectations. What a machine. It bags way better than my Honda did and mows 10 times faster. It is fun too, once you get the hang of it. I highly recommend this mower. It also has one of the better warranties in the industry, which says it will last. The seat is very comfortable. The only thnig I wish it had is lights. The Home Depot representative were very helpful, knowledgeable as they have used the product, and friendly. I am one who researches to the extreme. Toro and Home Depot definitely made my experience fun and rewarding. I highly recommend this mower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than expected. Recent purchase; about 20 hours so far. As others mention, the towing bracket should be included considering the price. The lack of an hour meter for tracking maintenance intervals is the only other negative that I have. I'm 6'6" - lots of leg room and bars are high enough to clear knees (unlike a couple of other brands I sat on). 42" Z-mower (Kawasaki engine) gives a 'golf course' finish. I would buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great. The best riding mower I have had. I had never tried a zero turn radius mower before but now I am convinced it is the best way to go. The learning curve was much easier than I expected. It is not only easy to maneuver but does a great job of cutting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Buy Great service from Home Depot internet. Mower was delivered to the front door.I only have four hrs on it at this time and everything works great.
