If I buy this mower with a Recycler Kit for mulching, do I have to remove the kit everytime I want to use it in the side discharge mode?

Asked by: pop123
You'd have to remove the tubing and bags mounted at the back of the mower. You can leave the frame for the next time you want to mulch. It's up to you whether to change out your blades since mulching require special blades. That's not a big problem since the far right blade is all you need to change.

Customer Reviews

TimeCutter SS5000 50 in. 24.5 HP V-Twin Zero-Turn Riding Mower with Smart Speed is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 401.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Product was well worth the investment. Well built mower purchased for home use. Lever controls take some time to get used to if you're used to a standard riding garden tractor with a steering wheel. After one season I'm pleased with the ride, mowing quality which is nice and even, and ease of deck cleaning with the built in hose connections. I added the hour meter to monitor oil changes and maintenance, oil changes are a snap by the way. Very pleased with the mower overall and cut my mowing time on my pie shaped lot by 2/3. Be careful when turning on a dime however, if moving too fast you will tear up the lawn. Otherwise for residential use a very nice mower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bestmower Let me tell you. I review a lot of lawn mower and this by far the best I mean the best one. Easy start comfortable ride. Fast when you need it sharp turns did I say easy start. You can't go wrong with this machine. Easy to steer so easy once you get the hang of it you will enjoy cutting your lawn. If you for something that will do as it say for the money you put it you can't go wrong with this machine. Trust me I love my mower now. No more going back to the place you bought it only back to the place you storage it and ready to cut again. I look forward to my grass growing so I and my mower can get again. How this help from a guy for questions everything and do look at review of a product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good all around mower I have had this mower for some time.Has been used approx 25 hrs. The only problem so far is the deck . If you happen to hit too close to a tree or a high place in the yard it will jump off left rear mounting. Two of my sons have this mower and do not have this problem. We have compared the hookup and all seems to be the same. I am using the mower more now and so far all is well. As an older person with some physical limitations I have found it difficult to level the mowing deck. I am hoping the coming season is without too much difficulty as I am now cutting two one acre yards.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Toro the grass eater. This is my second season to use this awesome cutting machine. It starts every time. Easy to work on like changing the oil and oil filter. Air filter easy to get to ,and change. Lube fittings easy to see and get to. The deck is easy to get off with out tools, love it. I bought the Toro mulching kit. Was easy to put on, I never have to rake grass or leaves after mowing. This Toro cut my mowing time in half. Love the three different speeds it has mow, tow and trim. I have a lot of trees and the trim setting keeps it from going to fast. This Toro was the best money I ever spent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mower Excellent Mower I particularly like the ability to switch from MOW to Trim which slows the Mower down allowing time to manuver in tight fitting places or around edges such as Sidewalks, Flowerbeds, and any Bushes or Trees in Yard. Price of Mower was lower than that of any Competitors Mower that had less options too. Smooth Riding and ease of operation with plenty of power makes this an excellent choice for A Homeowner. I have 3 Acres to mow and Time Cutter SS5000 has cut my Mowing time by 2/3. Thanks TORO for an Excellent Product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from lawn looks immaculate after a cut starting my second season with my ss5000. Started right up after a winter layup. mowing time has been cut in half with this mower. Had to look around a bit to find one with a kawasaki engine , but I scored. I tow a water filled lawn roller every spring to smooth my lawn out and it pulls it with ease. I did notice the steering arms need to be adjusted a bit, one side is more responsive than the other . maybe you can help me out with that. Had my other mower for 22 years. I hope this one last as long. I take good care of all my equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Z Turn So I've had my mower for 6 months now and I mow 5 acres. I love the auto brakes feature my last one you had to pull up on a lever to lock the breaks. The ease of use with the steering has a quick response to every move making it easy to steer. Love the back protection guard around the motor so when I back up it won't bump into a tree or something. Easy quick start. The height of the seat helps your lower back with better support. Motor is strong and powerful to cut tall weeds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ease of Handling Bought this mower for my husband then he had surgery, had no choice but to try it. He hasn't mowed since. Very easy to handle and mow. Have 5 acres and enjoy mowing every bit of it. Did have to change the blades after the first year but that was my bad. Love that it starts every time, oil easy to change. Hitch makes hooking and unhooking cart a breeze. Girls don't let the men fool you this zero turn mower is very easy to learn and use.
