I found the design, quality and value of this hitch to be very good. Although it is not "recommended" by either Toro or the manufacture of the sweeper that I purchased to tow anything behind a Z Mower my application worked quite well. I think that the recommendations are more of a product liability issue in that one could get "bound up" if the mower were to be turned too short thus allowing the draw bar to come into contact with the rear wheels of the mower. Caution and care and a watchful eye would be in order when towing behind a Z mower. When towing a reduced speed would be advisable as well. In all I am very satisfied with the results that I obtained.

Installed on a 2010 Z5035. No issues with install. Does not include a hitch pin to attach trailer to hitch. Note to Toro: it should. Also purchased a hitch pin with this order that didn't work. Had to go another route.
Pulls my 20 gallon sprayer without any issues. Has a tow limit that is the same as the ZTR's. Just a big solid block of metal. Not much to say other than it works. Someone with a little welding ability could probably crank this out in 20 minutes or so. I liked it because it fits and is easy.

Like we have a choice regarding this hitch kit. But it is really well made and the quick release is nice so you can switch between the bagger and the hitch. The only drawback is the design of the mower, you cant have the bagger and a trailer on at the same time. Oh well.

Wasn't aware they made these for zero turn mowers, and was happy to see it while browsing the Home Depot site. Saved me from breaking out the welder, and fashioning my own. Does what it says it will, easy installation, and good price.

The hitch is perfectly fine, shipping was very fast, it's a breeze to put on. Only problem I have is, there is a 80lb weight limit. Thats not very much. The weight limit is on the mower, may cause damage to engine or steering to pull more.

This is a "must have" if you are going to be towing a thatch removal rake. It works just like it should, however I did notice that friction wore off some of the paint on the hitch after the very first use.

Pops right on my Toro zero turn and works great. I use a long screw driver to attach my wagon, aerator, etc... so I don't have to deal with the cotter pin each time I take it off. Good value.
