Grass Chute gets in way going through our gates. Any ideas for keeping it in up position to get through the gates?

We have 2 gates to get through. Holding the grass chute in up position isn't working out well. Any ideas on how to keep it in the up position until I get through the gates?
Asked by: Bobbie
Convert mower to a mulcher and the chute is removed. Your clippings are recycled into fertilizer for your lawn.

My house sits on a 5-acre lot with a lot of trees spread out and a few small hills. Is this the right machine for me?

Colorado Springs
Asked by: Jeffhack
Every answer is correct. please take note and see if a 42 inch will work? yes. but will a larger unite work better? Yes. Bigger is better. so now look at the cost and if you can afford to buy the bigger unit I would go bigger. do you have a building that will fit the larger unit? can you lift to service the larger unit? 42 inch fit on my trailer. if you can not haul your Riding lawnmower to get services do you know what it will cost to have someone come to your location and repair? do you know what it will cost to pick up your unit? what about what it will cost to bring back to you? I replace my blades with sharper blades after every 3rd or 4th cut. I purchased a lift for my 42"

TimeCutter SS4225 42 in. 22 HP Zero-Turn Riding Mower with Smart Speed is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 544.

We really debated whether or not we wanted to spend this much money on a mower but mowing our lawn as well as our elderly fathers was becoming time consuming and exhausting. Decided to take the plunge when we received a 24 month no interest offer for purchase over $1999 and have been extremely glad we took the leap. The learning curve of maneuvering the machine was very minimal and for now it's actually fun to mow the yards, it takes less time and it isn't exhausting. We've been very happy with the cut it's making on the lawns as well. If you're on the fence whether or not to get a zero turn mower and you're able to, I don't think you'd regret purchasing this mower.

This mower took a little use to feel comfortable, since I have never used a zero turn before. My main reason for buying it is tha I can no longer use a riding mower with a clutch. My left leg won't allow it. The Timecutter served this purpose well. I purchased a mulching kit online and took it back to Home Depot and they installed it for me, no charge. My wife can also use it.

Home Depot, on the other hand, not so much. They loaded it on my trailer for me. I assumed (yes, the assume word) the key, owners manual, etc. would be under the seat. Got home and there was NOTHING. No key, no manual. Battery was not connected (not to mention dead I found out later). I called the store and they told me they would mail keys, etc. to me. They did send me one key and an owners manual they had printed from the internet. No per-printed manual, no deck water hose connection, etc. Again, I like the mower. If you buy from Home Depot, be prepared to to ALL pre-use services yourself.

I had to take back two to home depot. One had the deck spindles put on upside down and after they wore out a few weeks later the deck wouldn't work. The store was great about swapping out the mower because it was put together wrong, but the second mower I got would run for 30 minutes and then stop. took it back the same day and let the local store look at it and they got the same thing. They didn't have another one so they sent me to the store 30 miles away and I had to pick up another one from there. I have had this one less than a year and the discharge chute broke and the drive belt broke. needless to say I am not happy with this product.

I purchased this product because, even though I have a relatively small yard, my knees have decided that cutting grass in no longer an issue they want to deal with. I have always thought that my yard was to small for a riding mower, but the zero turn has made it possible to again cut my grass, and its fun to operate.

The toro was ordered through home depot. Delivered at home through a third party. After using it for 10 minutes the belt broke. When I called the third party(authorized toro dealer), they said they would have to pick it up and fix it...at the owners expense, also added that this is a wear and tear object, not covered by warranty. I look at the warranty information, it is covered by warranty. When I call toro,they say yes covered by warranty, but would have to pay for the dealer to pick it up! Go figure, extremely poor customer service, would never recommend this product to any one.

Only a few hours of use, so cannot speak to reliability or other long term observations. Initial impression is very good. Powerful mowing for sure. The SMART SPEED feature is nice, especially for towing yard rake, etc. In MOW (highed speed), the slow speed tight cornering is a little jerky. That may be a getting used to it item. If the grass is any kind of damp, the rear tires will spin or slide. Not sure if this is tread design, air pressure or some other issue. Comfortable, easy to operate; yes it scores high in these categories. Not a gas guzzler like the CUB CADET was... :)
