I didn't give my review earlier because I wanted to see how good this product was, I only have nine hours of use, it's not really enough time for a good evaluation but so far I am satisfied with this zero turning riding mower. It takes some getting used to it specially if you are used to a tractor type mower. I have a 24 hp Kohler engine in it instead of the Kawasaki. It seems to me if you order from the store you can get a Kawasaki engine but if you order online you probably get a Kohler engine.
It works for me because I had a $300 savings for buying one with the Kohler engine. To date I don't have any complaints.
Not used commercially.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pete The mower works fantastic.
The mower works fantastic. I was coming from a standard lawn tractor so steering took a bit of getting used to, but after a few tries I got the hang of it.
I installed the re-cycle kit from scratch, and it seems to be working very well with no sign of grass clippings left behind, however I use the mower on the slower 'toe and go' setting all the time which will help mulch the grass better.
As others have said, this mower does not have great grip on slopes, so you will need to find the best angle to attack the slope, but with a zero turn there are plenty of options.
Very happy with the performance, quality, power and results so far.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by joey Toro slug won't start and won't move, so in fact it won't do anything. Total Garbage
The second time I went to use this brand new mower the battery was nearly dead and wouldn't turn it over enough to start. I charged it up for an hour and it started one more time. Now the battery is dead again. I even disconnected the battery between uses. So I went to push it out of the way and it won't come out of gear. I tried pushing the paper clips in and out, put it in park, neutral, nothing worked so now not only won't it start but it won't move so I can't get any of my other equipment out. If I ever get it to move I am going to push this Toro slug over the cliff.
I see they've cut the price by 300 dollars to get rid of them.

Great addition to our yard tools. We have never used a ZTR mower prior to this, but after experimenting with the handling characteristics in a large open field, we were able to begin mowing our lawn. The 50" deck width made quick work of our 2 acre lot. Kohler motor was a requirement in our search. Great history with these motors.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Stanley Powerful Easy to use Mower
I have had this mower for about a month now and absolutely love it. It came quicker than the expected delivery time and was fully ready to go when it was off-loaded in my driveway from a small flatbed trailer. The guy who delivered it showed me the basics of operation and it had a full tank of gas. Home Depot had shipped my mower to my local Toro Dealership, who then put the finishing components together and delivered it to me ready to cut. It is a fast and powerful piece of equipment. The price was the best of any location I had researched. It has my full recommendation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Drauch1021 Kohler Vs. Kawasaki
Well... I orginally thought I purchased the SS5000 with the 23hp Kawasaki engine. When I got home I found out it had the Kohler 7000 engine !!! I did not have any clue that Toro made Exact Same Product with two different engines.. I did some serious research on both engines and after using my Kohler engine model decided to keep it. I get the SAME Mower with a $300 SAVIMGS... No Brainer as far as I was concerned. Home Depot refunded me the difference and for two weeks I have been very happy with this mower. It rides great and the Kohler engine is very quiet...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ToroRules What a mower!
Recently moved into a new house that had over a half acre on the lot. My push mower just was not going to work on this much of a yard. After talking to a co-worker about his zero turn, I decided that a Toro was the right mower for me. I checked the local Home Depots for the mower I was wanting and could not find it anyway. After calling I was able to purchase the mower online and it was even delivered for FREE! The customer service it great!
As for the mower itself, it is a beast. I didn't cut my yard for 3 weeks and this mower just cut through the thick grass like it wasn't even there. Needless to say the Kohler 24hp motor is very powerful. I would recommend this mower to anyone with a half acre of land as it will cut your mowing time down significantly.
