Toro has a great name when it comes to ride-on mowers and their zero turn range are no exception. I don't have a huge property by any means but 3 acres can still be a fair bit to mow and that's why I have a ride-on.
Lucky for me a good friend of mine whom I've known for over 40 years owns a chain of mower stores and he introduced me to the Toro range. I needed a mower that not only was tough but it also needed to get around all my fruit trees without taking me all day going back and forwards. My Toro 42 inch Timecutter makes short work of my 70 plus fruit trees and is tough enough to get around the bottom of my property.
This model has a fabricated deck (as opposed to the pressed metal deck my last Toro had) and this means it's heaps tougher and can withstand hitting the odd exposed root or rock edge.
