Can you pick up at store ready to go mowing

Asked by: Rob
yes, for the most part. I bought a 42" Toro, brought it home, and started cutting. I bought a 50" Toro, brought it home, and started cutting but the deck was crooked. I did some investigating and realized that it had been put together incorrectly. The problem was that one bold was resting on top of the frame when it should have been under it. I was able to jack the deck up, remove the bolt, lower the deck, and re-install the bolt.

Why does no one say who makes the motor...Kohler, Kawasaki, etc.? All the specs say is OEM

Asked by: Airborne
Because they install which ever engine they contracted with at the time of manufacture. Currently we use 4 diff engines

TimeCutter 50 in. 24.5 HP V-Twin Zero-Turn Riding Mower with Smart Speed is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 622.

I previously owned a 2008 Toro Z5000, the precursor to this model, which provided over 1,000 hours of dependable service, and was still going strong when I passed it on. All of the shortcomings of the older model appear to have been addressed with this newer one. The combination of the stronger engine, deeper stamped deck, and higher blade-tip speed allow this mower to do an excellent job of chopping/handling/distributing grass clippings, which means I can mow less often. The seat mounts, which broke on my previous model, appear to be much more sturdy, and they have done away with the rear "axle/hydro-bracing rod", which was another weak point. Other things I like about both models include the easy-lifting deck (even easier now), the ability to pick up objects off the ground without getting off the mower (nice if mowing a large property/long hours), the ease of getting full access to the deck for servicing, and the comparably comfortable ride, which I believe might be the result of the light mower weight and some flex in the frame. (I have a similar commercial model of another brand which, despite having larger tires, has a much rougher ride). Another small feature I really appreciate is the easy-operating "emergency brake" feature. One minor drawback to the mower is the lack of a built-in hour meter (I purchased the add-on meter.) I can't yet comment on the longevity/durability of the mower, but I'm hoping that the reliability of the prior model and the long Toro warranty bode well for many years of faithful service. One last note: despite all of the hype about fabricated decks, so far I have found stamped decks to be quite worthy as long as the mower is driven reasonably/responsibly.

Out of stock at HD was the model 74731C which shows in spec. page as commercial, so I ordered online and excited for the deliverer found out I was shipped a 74731, which was in stock at my local HD that I could have picked up. (Toro should not spec. something being different)!! I have used 3 times and love how easy it is to mow with over my old ride on. Cut mowing time in half. Plenty of power and mows slops with no problem as a matter of fact even better than my old mower. Seat is very comphy but is sweaty may have to find a cover for that problem (Con). Frame is very ridged the front will ride over a hole and never fall into it which is a (pro). The steering is very responsive and easy to learn another (pro). Be advised no hour meter so you must purchase one (Con) all service is done by hour of use. I always clean under mower deck but seen reviews that said is a bad idea due to water in shaft bearings so have never used the hose hook up. Grass does seem to stick more under deck than my old mower, probably should have opt for the fab. deck. Water will pool on top of deck when cleaning and is hard to get off(Con). Due to the cons was my 4 star rating. Over all it is a good mower for the price.

I mowed 5 acres of heavy grass/hay in 5-6 hours and it looks incredible. This mower works like a charm. I really appreciate the three different speeds. The only issue that I don't know the answer to is that there is no gas gauge, so you'll be in the middle of the field and it will just die in the middle of mowing without warning. The gas tank is clear, maybe you can view the gas level, but kind of impossible while mowing, of course. I'm about to buy the hitch kit and start using it to pull a utility cart. Great mower!

If I were to name one fault, it would be that when headed down hill and trying to turn right to go back up the hill, the right wheel seems to spin, rather than get traction. This is minor and does not affect my satisfaction with the machine. I feel that this mower was a good bargain for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love It! Just a homeowner who switched from a tractor to this zero turn. Aside from a bit of a learning curve, it's an awesome experience. My ZTR is about 2 mos old and I've had no issues at all with it. I can't believe the great cut you get going so fast. Unbelievable! Would highly recommend this ZTR to everyone who's thinking about it.

However, my husband was having so much fun, I couldn't get him off of it! He not only mowed the yard but continued mowing the entire field (3 acres). It was so fast and cut beautifully. He is so thrilled with it. I couldn't get over the speed and zero-turns. He was able to mow right along the edge and around a few birch trees with ease. This mower is very heavy-duty, solid and works great. We were going to purchase a riding lawnmower, but glad we with this zero-turn riding mower. It works so much better than our previously riding mower. Would highly recommend!
