How to finance a zero turn

I applied for a Home Depot card, got the card and put the Toro on that and got 6 mos. no interest. Real simple. Great mower. Look for H.D. special ads for months without interest. Creek33

what is horsepower

Asked by kicker September 7, 2020

Kicker = ? HP ? a) - This CHINA Engine was never submitted to the long-established, Testing & Verification Procedures of our U.S.A. Society of Automotive Engineers = a.k.a. = "S.A.E." b) - There will Never be an alternative Math Means of ACCURATELY estimating "HP" ... stately "Wild Guesses" via mis-understood Internet posts. c) - This "452cc" engine WILL BE FAR TOO Underpowered to support the 42" mowing path at top or rated Speed ... Spend the $$$ and seek the much Larger displacement and LISTED HP engine option or you will be extremely-disappointed, in my experiences!!

Very good mower & value!!

Just got mine this spring and now have 10 cuts with it. A very well thought out and convenient mower for my 1 acre lawn. Several nice surprises; the deck cleanout feature works much better than expected - just attach the hose, lower the deck, start the blades and voila!, The power of the 16 horse is better than expected - I'm a 240lb guy and this thing chugs up inclines while cutting with no problem, You may not need a bagger - the grass dispersion is excellent with side discharge - there are no piles of grass remaining - it looks like it's been bagged! It's also super maneuverable around my many trees and plant beds. The cut quality is best at the slow speed range so I keep it there. Low maintenance as most of the bearing packs are sealed - only 2 grease zercs. Great price point and did I mention that it's fun also!! Buy one!

We haven't mowed with it yet, we live in southeast Texas so the yard is a swamp in February. We "laid to rest" our 2008 Toro Timecutter. It made it thru 2 floods, 4 hurricanes, and served a 2 acre unlevel yard well. I'm confident this one will be just as good! Rating the experience of purchase with HD. Superb! Mower was delivered by a local Toro dealer who was phenomenal! Perfect buying experience. Thank you!!!

Very Well Built Riding Mower
Customer review from logo
Having never had a Zero Turn Mower it took about 20 minutes to stop driving it like an Army track vehicle and start driving it like a dual transmission lawn mower. Once I overcame my previous skills it was amazing how precise it could be driven. I added the bagger option myself and it was easy to install. This mower does a great job on leaves.

Purchased on 9/5/20 got home to mow and it died 5 times. Took to the shop, a week later pick it up get home and it dies 3 times while mowing. Returned to the shop, a week and a half later I pick it up, get my yard mowed no problem. The following week trouble starting, got started and it coughed and sputtered several times and now there is gas in the crankcase. About to take it back to the shop once again. My entire lot is only a 1/3 acre.
