Hints & Tips
Not all lawns are perfect rectangles making cutting the lawn a simple up and down task and often there will be trees, bird tables and even small statues to drive around.
This is where a Toro ZS3200S Timecutter Zero-Turn Ride-On Mower really comes into its own, being able to turn in its own length.
Independent levers let the driver control the direction very precisely and are really easy to use.
Because of this, zero turn ride-ons are often the choice of professional gardeners.
This one has Toro’s own 542 cc engine designed for a longer life and is remarkably quiet.
The cutting width is 81 cm wide with cuttings mulched, but an optional grass box is available and clippings can also be discharged to the side when dealing with really long grass.
The fuel tank holds 11.3 litres and is translucent so you can easily see when it’s time to re-fuel.
There is a range of optional extras available including a tow hitch to turn it into a year-round workhorse.
The maker’s recommended price is £2599 but we have it for sale for £2399. Delivery is free within three to five working days and there is a three year warranty from Toro.
The Toro ZS4200T Timecutter Zero-Turn Ride-On Mower relies on similar navigation by using levers instead of a steering wheel to give precise directional control.
Precise control of each drive wheel independently via levers gives the sort of control you can’t really achieve with ordinary steering and is a great time-saver.
This model has a Kawasaki 603 cc twin cylinder engine for real power and a 107 cm deep twin bladed deck which gives an excellent finish to the lawn even when it’s wet.
Cutting heights are from 38 to 114 mm and the clippings are either mulched or discharged at the side – a grass box can be bought as an extra.
Like the previous machine there is a high-backed driver’s seat for added comfort and there are two transmission ranges which can be adjusted according to the ideal mowing speed.
And it’s easy to wash out – just plug the garden hose into the special ports in th4 cutting deck.
The manufacturer’s recommended price is £3249 but we have it for sale for £2999.
Delivery is free within five to seven working days and there is a three year maker’s warranty.
Again a range of optional extras are available extend the use of this machine.
