what is the towing capacity for this mower? would it be able to pull a leaf vac loaded?

is it capable of towing more than 85 lbs
Asked by: mmff
The draw bar limit is 80 lbs on the TimeCutter but that is a horizontal pull force. The TimeCutter can operate approved Brinly-Hardy attachments at their full recommended capacity limits.

Customer Reviews

TimeCutter SS5000 50 in. 23-HP Kawasaki V-Twin Zero-Turn Riding Mower with Smart Speed is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 345.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from My Review Overall I like the mower, works well. However, that was after an oil leak b/c the factory forgot to insert a plug into a port... and since the port threads were stripped, Kawasaki shipped a short block as a replacement. Also, the brake system/module is not working right.. local shop has a replacement ready, but a little disappointed that a key part does not work correctly on a piece of equipment that has been used only a few times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does The Job Without Issue What can I say? It performs as expected. It really is faster than the run of the mill mower. Maintenance is easy. It feels like a quality product. I've been running it for 5 months. No issues found.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This mower was a heavier frame than my old toro I really like my zero turn toro it is very easy to mow my lawn that is just over an acre. It's better on gas and a lot more comfortable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mower Deck Spindle Problems I purchased my Timecutter SS5000 in 2013. I love it and mow 3+ acres a week. The only problems I've encountered are the mower blades need to be replaced every year. The ends of the blades wear back leaving a knife edge. This year (2016) I had to replace all three blade spindle bearing. It seems the bearing are of poor quality. They are a sealed bearing to keep dust and water out. But, the seals are not doing their job. If you wash your mower deck off after use, before you put it away. Water is making its way into the top bearing and over a period of time rust forms in the bearing destroying it. My dealers answer to the problem! Don't wash your deck off. I would prefer Toro replace these bearing with a better quality product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I could not be happier I have had my SS5000 for over 3 years now, 4th summer with it. I have done oil changes, sharpened the blades, greased the front casters, replaced the air filter, and did have to replace the battery last year. It has been a flawless work partner in mowing my 1 acre lawn. I have over 25 years with a State D.O.T., and have used many mowers, and tractors. For a homeowner this machine is a great blend of power, quality, and value. The Kawasaki engine is near bulletproof. The package that Toro has put together with this SS5000 is VERY impressive.
