Q: Is there a bag attachment for this model. If so how many bags and how big are the bags?
by Chris from North Carolina on March 21, 2016

A: Chris - the Toro TimeCutter 74721 would use the Toro #79391 twin bagger: 79391 bagger

Q: Can I buy an arm rest kit for the 2016 toro SS4225? If so, What and where?
by C. E. Kirkland from Georgia on March 20, 2016

A: C.E. - unfortunately, the seat on the Toro SS4225 (model 74721) is not designed for use with an arm rest kit.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Several of the Toro Zero Turn mowers have 23 or 24HP engines. That seems very high for a riding mower - more like a Kubota (or similar) tractor. Are these suitable for towing big loads or adding attachments? Is there a PTO?
by Kyle from Connecticut on May 20, 2015

A: Kyle - the Toro TimeCutter zero turn mowers are not designed to tow heavy loads. Towing capacity will vary by model, but for the most part, these mowers will not tow more than about 200 to 250 lbs total payload. And none of the zero turns that we sell have a PTO that would power any sort of attachment.

The Toro SS4225 zero turn riding mower offers a 42” wide mower deck and powerful 22HP Kohler engine, which makes it great for wide open areas. Also the 2 anti-scalp wheels on the deck will allow it to float over the turf to prevent scalping of your lawn.

The Toro TimeCutter SS4225 features the Toro Smart Speed™ control system. This exclusive Toro innovation lets you choose different speed ranges with the flip of a lever without changing the engine or the blade speeds. Mow large open areas... more

I Bought This Mower This Time Last Year From Ped
I bought this model last year from PED, and I love it. You want to pay the $50 for lift gate if you don't have a pallet jack at home. The pallet is 7' long and double stacked. It's packed very well. I cut once every 10 days (1.5 acres). It takes about 45 mins.

I'd suggest buying after-market blades so you get an even cut without stripping if you're using the mulch kit cause Toro blades aren't even close to top 10 blades.

I ordered a timer on Amazon and installed it in minutes. Order the oil... more

"My wife ordered it for my retirement fun and it arrived in a few weeks as planned. It's actually a joy to drive for me after my orthopedic doctor gave me the okay to ride it. I popped a tire off its bead; but with a rope, wrench, air compressor, and 5 minutes of my time. Overall I'm pleased with my mower I'm looking for "Honeycomb Style All-Terrain Tires" like what can be installed on the John Deer Zero Turn Mowers (exclusive)"

Used Once Then Failed
got 1 ss4225
and also a ss5425

the 4225 was used once and the electric brake switch failed ( would not release the brake )
it started but cannot move

2 - 3 weeks to get it in to service and be repaired

keep in mind its brand new, just got it - i want to use it and not use the old push mower

cant blame the local dealers - if there schedule is full its full

ordered replacement part ( $150.00 ) with shipping
put it in and back to service

what i am disappointed in is... more

This Mower Has My Vote
This is a very good residential mower and I have a good sized yard (less than an acre with trees and landscaping) so it is perfect for me. If I had an acreage, I would go to a heavier duty mower that could stand up to heavier usage.

This is not a knock on this mower as it was built and priced for residential yards. I made the right choice. For the money, you will not find a better mower.
Pros: Fast, Easy To Use, Price, Features

"I buy a lot of things on line. This was the best service ever. I ordered the mower one day and had it in my driveway the next day no shipping charges. It was crated very well. Short of a serious truck wreck, handling would not damage it. It came from Illinois which is not that far from southeast Minnesota but still that is good service."

Better Than My Old Wheel Horse
I have never owned any mower other than a Wheel Horse (Toro) this is my first new tractor since 1987 .My old tractor still runs fine ,just a little slow, considering it has over 4500 hours on it, (18hp Kohler).

I have cut my 1 acre yard with it twice ,it has a beautiful cut but I am still getting used to the zero turn that my son talked me into. Don"t get me wrong it is alot faster than my old garden tractor and I am sure once i get the hang of it i will like it even more .

"The mower came well crated, took about 45 minutes to uncrate fill with fuel make the necessary adjustments and get to it. The truck driver took it off the truck put it in the driveway, fell in love with my old Wheel Horse. I had a cup of coffee. Talked about his old tractor, quite similar to mine and helped uncrate it considering I had just had knee surgery a week earlier ,his help was much appreciated"

I Had A Lot Of Problems
First, I paid for lift gate service. The shipping company's lift gate was inadequate so I had to find someone local with a forklift to help unload the mower.

I hadn't had the mower for 20 minutes before the drive locked up. It is the control/brake unit. It stuck with the brake locked. I figured out how to unlock it manually. The brake unit no longer works but fortunately it is stuck unlocked so I can still operate the mower. I came back to mow the lawn again a week later and the... more

Was Happy, Now Disappointed
I purchased this mower after some research comparing to other name brands and the Toro had the most positive reviews. While I was excited to get this mower, my excitement turned to disappointment.

After just four times cutting the yard, the mower's electric brake module goes out and it won't move. I had the mower for 2 months and already it's in the shop. I really am hoping this is just a fluke and not a scenario of things to come. It performed just fine until this.

I Love My New Toro Timecutter Ss4225
I've owned a Craftsman zero turn with 42" cut with 24hp Briggs and Stratton. It doesn't hold a candle to this Toro. I ordered a bagger with the mower and it works super. Glad I bought a Toro.

Notoro
I bought this one on my dealer's recommendation. The second time I tried to use it, it would just grind when I tried to put it into forward or reverse. Dealer came out and said it was the electric brake, so he removed the cables until he could get a new brake.

It worked awesome. The third time I tried it, it wouldn't start as if no battery. Thinking I might have left the key in the "on" position, I removed the key and charged the battery up. Same thing, no start. Now just waiting... more

Great Mower With A Glitch
I mowed for a month with no problems. Great mower, cuts great, mows fast. I am able to get 3 acres done in two hours with many trees in it. After a four times of trouble free mowing I shut it off and it would not start again.

Took it to a Toro dealer for warranty repairs, and after two weeks I still don't have it back. The part that is needed is back ordered with no information about when it might come in. Great mower, bad parts management on Toro's end.

Bad Timing
After giving a good review I ran into some bad luck. I went to use my newly purchased mower to find out the battery was completely dead.

After charging the battery and hoping to get my grass cut before the storms came thru my mower is now stuck in park and won't move.....electric brake from what you tube says. Only a month an a half in with this mower and I'm not to happy!!!!!
