Questions & Answers

How does this mower handle hills and slopes? I know that some of the zero turn lap control models and regular tractor mowers have trouble.

Asked by: Anne
It has worked great for me on slopes no greater than 15 degrees, I feel I have complete control of the mower !
Answered by: moviemaker

Does the mower come with mulching blades?

Asked by: Aj
No. You have to purchase the mulching kit, which includes blades, a chute cover and some baffling for the under side of the mower deck.

Does the SW4200 or SW5000 have any sort of brake? Other than the parking brake?

If not, how does it stop should it get out of control?
Asked by: Dohcholiday
It seems to stop immediately when you let go of the accelerator. It actually jerks to a stop rather than coasting to a stop so there is either a brake a transmission or both in action when the accelerator pedal is disengaged.

I think I answered this before. I don't know what you're referring to. You should call Home Depot for assistance.

Customer Reviews

TimeCutter SW5425 54 in. 24.5 HP V-Twin Zero-Turn Riding Mower with Smart Park is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 86.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Meh - New and doesn't work?? Please take my review with a grain of salt. I can only base my review on the lack of the functioning mower. I bought the mower close to spring time and when the weather was at a good point to start mowing (just a few days outside of the Home Depot return policy), the mower refused to start. I checked all of the basics: Battery, gasoline, oil. I then opened the cover of the engine and found that the flywheel was extremely tight requiring a significant force to get it to move. So a brand new mower with zero miles on it failed to start even after following all of the instructions. I had to call a service center to have this looked at and incur an additional cost for having someone pickup/deliver. Let's see what comes back from the service center but I expected a lot more from Toro's products. This is not a used product but brand new and something as simple as starting is where it's failing over. I'm not impressed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what its cracked up to be. We bought one of these in June and it has been in the shop twice for steering issues. The first was literally a week after the in store 30 day trade in warranty ended. When making a "zero turn" the right rear locked itself still and would drag. When it went to the service company they told me it was a factory bolt in the steering that had not been tightened. Fast forward almost two months again making a "zero turn" and the steering begins free spinning as if it stripped. Elevate the mower and steering gear on the rack and pinion is 180 degrees out. Also, I've had problems consistently leaving high spots in the middle of the cutting area to which I have to go back and cut again. Not really "cutting time" if you have to mow the same spot twice. Also, you can only adjust the deck to 4.5 inches high. Not a big deal until you're cresting a hill and it scalps the yard. You cannot "edge" around trees and corners of fences like a lever driven ztr mower. I will say it has good power but my suggestion is save the extra couple of hundred bucks and take the time to learn to drive a real ztr mower and avoid this steering wheel garbage.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from We have owned the TimeCutter for 3 truly miserable years. It's a piece of junk. After one month, ... We have owned the TimeCutter for 3 truly miserable years. It's a piece of junk. After one month, it was in the repair shop. The second season it accrued more hours in the shop than it did actually cutting grass. This year we bought a wonderful & cheap big box store mower and left the Toro garaged after 2 more visits for repairs. The biggest issue is with the starter and the traction pedal. The pedal has to be in the exact correct position or it won't start. One of us has to lay underneath and move the pedal back and forth while the other tries to start the machine. The mowing deck detaches easily while mowing. The mower must run for at least 15 minutes so the battery can recharge. Forget something in the house less than 15 minutes after starting? Don't bother! The battery won't start! This machine has been in for repairs more than 6 times, not counting the on-site repair calls. I will NEVER buy a Toro again and neither should you. Don't waste your hard earned money!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Toro makes a 700 lb. boat anchor Purchased the mower on Christmas Eve and it was delivered on the 26th. I was able to drive it about 50ft. onto my property and pushed it the rest of the way. Home Depot suggested that I drain the gas and change the fuel filter, both of which I did. The plugs have a strong spark and the oil is showing full. Home Depot said my two options are to return it for a refund or call Toro Service. Called Toro Service on Monday the 28th about 8:40am and was told that I had done all the trouble shooting possible. Their suggestion is to take it to Toro Authorized Repair center.. When asked how since it will not fit in a truck, her comment was to call Home Depot, then she (Debbie - Toro rep) hung up. I c

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stuck with a Lemon? I am not sure how to review our new mower. We have had Toros in the past and been very pleased. We decided to upgrade to a larger mower for our huge lawn, and because we have so many curved flower beds, to go with the zero turn. Because our 11-year old son is now our main operator, we thought a zero turn with a steering wheel instead of levers would be the perfect solution...We mowed our lawn twice, delighted with how easy it was to use, and how fast we could get done thanks to the huge deck. And, exactly 32 days after delivery, as we started our third mow, it blew up. We paid someone to bring it in to a private Toro dealership for warranty work - and found out another week later that the head gasket had blown, which is a pretty serious problem. Our dealer is working with Toro as this is a brand new design and they need to investigate. Home Depot won't take it back, and Toro under no circumstances replaces mowers, they only fix them. So here we are, $3000 plus later, no mower for almost two weeks now, paying someone to cut our grass, stuck with a machine that has a shortened life span of what???? No one even has any idea how long it will take to fix...they can't even commit to two weeks out, as they have to "work with Toro" Not impressed with the customer service of Home Depot or Toro.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Mower! My first Zero turn mower. Wow, what was i waiting for? I have approx. 4 acres to cut, lots of trees, fire pits, benches, to go around. This mower did Great! I have 2 other riders and a compact tractor with a mid mount finish mower. This mower has all 3 of them beat in, cut quality, speed to get the job done, and ease of going around obstacles. I am really impressed with the cut quality. finally a mower that cuts properly right off the store floor. I was a little skeptical that it would be setup properly. it is setup up perfectly! Thanks Home Depot and Toro! I did add a few accessories,Toro hour meter, Bagger/ attachment mount/, arm rests, steering knob, deck ring kit.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from STAY AWAY FROM THIS MOWER!!! THE MOWER RUNS GREAT AND IS EASY TO USE. THE ONLY PROBLEM IS THAT IT IS POORLY DESIGNED. THE MOWER DECK WILL FALL OFF IF CUTTING AREAS THAT ARE UNEVEN. THE STEERING SYSTEM OFTEN GETS OUT OF SYNC AND WILL PULL ONE SIDE OR THE OTHER WHEN CUTTING. WE BOUGHT THE MOWER IN APRIL 2015. WAS IN THE SHOP BY THE END OF MAY. IT IS DECEMBER NOW AND HOME DEPOT HAS HAD IT IN THE SHOP FOR THE 6TH TIME SINCE AUGUST. OVERALL WE CUT OUR GRASS 6 TIMES WITH THIS MOWER SINCE APRIL. THE REST OF THE TIME IT HAS BEEN IN THE SHOP. TORO WAS NO HELP. THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE WAS NO HELP WHAT SO EVER. HOME DEPOT DID THE RIGHT THING AND REFUNDED OUR MONEY TODAY! THANKS HOME DEPOT FOR STEPPING UP!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Won't Level - Very Disappointing Have the new Toro SW4200 and I cannot get mine to level. A full 1/2 inch off left to right blade tip, the left side being the high side but the adjustment (on the left side) is bottomed-out. Tire pressure is good, I think, the manual does not mention how much air pressure should be in the front tires??? On my unit, the whole mower sub assembly is off level when measured under the seat at cross member braces with a torpedo level on a level garage floor. Took it to a Toro authorized repair center (under warrantee) - they cannot get the unit to level either -- $110 later. I work for prominent aircraft manufacturer, so I know my way around a transit and torpedo level. This deck just won't level. Maybe someone else has had better luck leveling the deck. Hate to return to Home Depot but that's the next step. Please let me know if you have any ideas. Otherwise the rest of the mower seems top notch, quality, well built, easy to handle, etc...
