Introducing New Toro® TimeCutter® MX Series Zero-Turn Mowers
BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (Fall 2011) - New Toro® TimeCutter® MX mowers pack more features into an already great machine. These brawny TimeCutter zero-turn mowers are built to take on the toughest cutting conditions. Pair a new fabricated deck and heavy-duty hydrostatic transmissions with the TimeCutter's time-saving Smart Speed™ control, and you have a durable machine that will get the job done fast.
Designed for efficiency and durability, the MX 4260 and MX 5060 models feature a 726 cc Kawasaki® V-Twin engine. Large deck sizes make these machines extremely productive. Choose from either a 42- or 50-inch steel fabricated deck. Large hydrostatic transmissions give you the power to move the TimeCutter MX through the yard, getting the job done quickly. Both machines come with a foot-assist height of cut that makes raising and lowering the fabricated deck even easier. An hour meter helps you keep track of use and serves as an easy maintenance reminder. Just as comfortable as they are durable, the TimeCutter MX mowers come standard with an 18-inch extra tall seat and an anti-vibe floor mat.
Both models feature Toro's innovative Smart Speed technology. Imagine a system that allows you to select different ground speed ranges with the flip of a lever. In the past, if you wanted precise control while mowing around landscaping and tight corners, you had to reduce your throttle speed. That also meant reducing the blade speed, which could lead to an uneven cut. Smart Speed makes that issue a problem of the past. The Smart Speed adjustment lever allows you to reduce the ground speed range of the control arms from 0-7 mph to 0-3.5 mph, without reducing engine speed or blade speed, thus preserving quality of cut. No other zero-turn mower offers anything like it.
Choosing the Smart Speed high setting gives you maximum speed for mowing the flat, open spaces in your yard. The low setting allows for enhanced maneuverability when cutting around trees, landscaping, or other tight spaces for a perfectly manicured look. The slower speed option provides more graduated speed changes with your control arms. Both experienced operators and novices alike will feel in command at all times.
The TimeCutter MX starts at $3,799 (MSRP) and is covered by a three-year limited warranty (see retailer for warranty details).
