A zero turn mower is a type of riding lawn mower that is designed for cutting grass on large properties, such as acreages. Zero turn mowers have a zero degree turning radius, which means they can turn on a dime, making them extremely maneuverable.
This makes them ideal for cutting around obstacles, such as trees and shrubs. Zero turn mowers also have a large cutting deck, which allows them to cover a lot of ground quickly.
The Ariens IKON XD 52-in is packed with high end residential quality and offers superior power and performance. From a 23 HP Kawasaki FR V-Twin engine to a 11-gauge steel fabricated deck, this is a tougher, longer-lasting zero-turn mower built to perform.
It’s constructed with a heavy-duty fully welded steel tubular frame for years of durability and performance and is equipped with three blades covering a 52-in cutting width. Greater comfort is achieved with the high back plush seat, including standard armrests and ergonomic intuitive controls.
Ariens puts a high priority on building low-maintenance machines incorporating our self-adjusting deck drive belt technology.
I have been a fan of ariens for many years until now. This machine is poorly designed. The discharge chute is made of rigid plastic and doesn’t raise up when it touches something. It had a Crack in it the first time using it.
After a couple more times chunks were just falling off so u removed it. Whenever you need to change the deck belt, keep a 2 or 3 hour block to do it, you have to take every guard off to do it. It is very frustrating and takes forever compared to a normal 5 minute change for any other machine.
Also the deck belt is 144″ long. I bought the mower at fleet farm and they don’t even carry a belt that big. You can order them online for $100 though. Good luck finding one that big in a store. The front deck roller wheels have fallen off twice now as well.
I just bought my icon xd52. It’s my first zero turn and I absolutely love it. It’s a lil touchy but I run equipment and I found it to be a very good mower. Cuts really nice with no grass left standing.
This is a big upgrade from a JD L118. My yard is 2 acres and I cut it in 1. 45 my first time with Ariens, Normally it took 2 hrs with ol JD. Very happy with my purchase!.
Overall it’s a great lawn mower that cuts well. Does seem have alot of vibration if throttled all the way up. Only issue I had is a failure to start. I quickly diagnosed it myself quickly. Issue was loose linkage on the e brake.
The adjustment nut backed it self off and wasnt allowing the e brake to fully engage resulting in failure to start. This happened with 9. 6 hours on the mower.

Very happy with this mower. Some reviewers obviously have had a hard time because they do not know how to operate it properly. The deck height pin removes easily while sitting in the seat. Raise the deck with with the foot control, pin comes out with a finger pull.
Getting stuck? Lol, it is a large mower and you should not drive it on soft ground. Check your ground first! I’ve had it a few years now mowing 2 acres with lots of trees. I grease all fittings before every use, especially the deck fittings, check air pressure.
It is a large mower, so take your time learning to drive it. I went from a residential grade 42in zero turn to this one. The speed will surprise you so work your way up to mowing at full speed.

Couldn’t be happier it works Great. I cut around 4 acres and its takes around 2 hours once a week, it handles it perfectly and has a great cut. Love the deck height selector system its fast and easy to do.
Make sure to adjust the deck peddle to further hole if isn’t already especially if have longer legs. The adjustable levers help get that perfect fit to your arms just make sure they are tighten good I mean really good or the lever will come undone.
Its weird and takes a second to relize whats happening, I was going under mulberry branches and it cause me to go all up in them it was actually pretty funny well I laughed. the only down fall well not really but dumb is that it doesn’t come with the hour meter have to purchase separate.
I bought at same time cause thats important to have and should be already on it like the older models. The oil drain plug what ever the red crap they used or He-Man put it on!!! It would not come off I actually broke a box end wrench trying to get it off, Had to use longer wrenches for more leverage.
So I clean all that out and used Teflon tape and its just fine now. also the arm rest should be on it too with the price of these things other than that its a fantastic mower.

IšverstiShow in original languageWe’re a couple of senior citizens, ages 82 & 90, maintaining several acres with a traditional riding lawn mower until our son encouraged us to get the 54” Toro TimeCutter MyRide Zero Turn Mower (75757).
The White Glove Delivery was extremely helpful and resolved all of our questions. Our concerns about driving a zero turn disappeared quickly as we experienced how easy and natural it is to drive this Toro.
A huge bonus for us is the comfort of the MyRide suspension seat and we are really impressed with the finished cut on our lawn using the Toro.
IšverstiShow in original languageI have a 1. 5 acre lawn to mow. It’s big and it’s bumpy. For 20 odd years I’ve been bouncing around on various lawn tractors. It took 3 and a half hours to mow and my neck and back hurt for days.
I just took 5 of them to the dump. I finally decided to go with a zero turn unit. This Toro with its 54 inch cut, 7mph speed, and my ride suspension can cut the lawn in just over an hour and a half. After which I can get off and continue to work virtually pain free.
Switching from a steering wheel to the zero turn steering took a little getting used to and I did tear up the grass chute in the first 15 minutes. (Put trees on your left side when going around them).
I’ve only put probably 20 hours at most but I expect that the Kawasaki engine will out last the Briggs and Stratton and Koehler engines I’ve had before. With the Toro name backing this machine I believe I’ve made a good choice.
IšverstiShow in original languageHave an 1/2 acre lot. First time using a Zero Turn. Coming off using a 42″ lawn tractor with Fwd. /Rev shifter. What a pleasure using Z turn. Took a couple of times cutting to get used to new control system but now am quite comfortable with it.
Would never go back. I personally keep the Ground Speed Control on Tow setting as my yard has quite a bit of maneuvering around beds and trees. Works well and I’m never in a hurry to finish as it has become fun!!.

Used it about a dozen times so I think I can give it a fair review now. I use it to mow about a one-acre yard on my farm and then I trailer it to mow a one-acre commercial property. It replaced a push mower, so beware I might be more favorable towards it than others might be.
This is my first zero-turn machine so there was a bit of a learning curve to overcome in driving it. I purchased it fully assembled from my local TSC, they did a pretty good job except for not sufficiently tightening some bolts on the steering bars (I should have more thoroughly test drove it before taking it home).
This nearly ended in disaster on the first use when one of bars loosened and I lost control of the machine. Fortunately, I had enough time to collect my senses and kill the motor before too much damage was done.
(Hey engineers at Toro, research the concept of safe-failure before starting your next design. ) Otherwise, I’m happy with the machine and it almost meets all expectations. Easy to start, seems economical on fuel, reasonably comfortable (but it is loud – buy ear protection along with the mower).
Mows close to fences pretty good. What I wished was better: 1) quality of cut – have to drive it slowly to get the best results, 2) ground holding ability – the slightest slope is a challenge, especially for this newbie, 3) the grass clippings chute sticks way out there and is easily snagged on fence posts and trees (needs some kind of mechanism to allow it to deflect?).
This review lost one star because I cannot get its drive motors balanced. One hydro-motor has noticeably less torque than the other and I have to drive with one steering bar offset by about a half inch from the other.
In effect always having to slightly counter-steer to go in a straight line (it was originally pretty bad). This gets irritating after a while. My mower does not have enough range of adjustment to correct this.
I purchased my mower from a local big box store online. The mower was shipped to an auto parts store dealer in my town to be delivered to me. The auto store called me when they received the mower and made arrangements to deliver the mower.
The man delivering the mower got on it and drove it a little bit and then showed me the basics and left. Not ever using a zero turn mower I quickly went through the owner’s manual and then proceeded to pretend to mow with my new mower.
I had a little trouble getting the hang of things because as soon as I brought the handles up to what should have been the neutral position the mower started to move ever so little to the left. Also when I had the mower on a straight stretch it pulled more to the left and I had to pull back on the right lever.
Then when backing up the right side would hardly pull at all it was most the left. Needless to say I was having a terrible time learning to drive my first zero turn. After taking the mower back to the auto parts store and going over the manual myself I was able to adjust the motion going forward so that both sides were pulling the same but then when I had both levers push all the way forward the two levers were off (not equal) by several inches.
I thought surely this cannot be correct on a brand new mower! So I called Toro and they suggested I take it back to the auto parts store which I already had to no avail. So I look around for other Toro dealerships which had a service department.
I found one about 40 miles to west of me. I called Toro again and asked about having the Mower checked out under warranty and the representative told me I could but when I contacted the dealership they told me it would not be covered under warranty that I would have to pay for any adjustments made unless they found a faulty part was the cause of my problem.
I needed my mower setup correctly so I could learn to mow with it so I took it had it adjusted and paid for it out of my pocket. It’s hard for me to believe that Toro is not able to setup these mowers correctly at the factory before they are shipped out.
You should only have to add oil and gas before being able to use your new mower. I feel this is quite an unacceptable practice by Toro and it does not make me look favorable toward their product name.
I purchased the mower about a month and a half ago. I also purchased and installed the recycler kit. The recycler kit was easy to install and all parts fit perfectly. It’s nice not having to worry about grass discharge as I have many mulched planting beds in my yard.
I’ve only mowed with the mower three times. It takes a little time to become accustomed to operating a zero turn mower, but after a few laps around the yard, things become a little more intuitive. I can see that mowing time will be reduced substantially.
I’ve had two problems with the mower. While mowing, the engine sputters and then stalls out. The first two times I used the mower, this problem occurred after approximately 30 minutes of use. The third time, the problem occurred throughout the mow.
After a stall I have to wait a few minutes before restarting, then mow for a short while before the next stall. This is very disappointing for a fairy expensive yard mower. I plan to limp through one more mow this season and take it in for a warranty repair.
The other problem is that the right drive wheel rotates at a faster rate than the left wheel causing me to back off the speed on the right wheel to drive straight. The owner’s manual has instructions for making an adjustment for this situation.
I have not attempted the adjustment and will ask the repair shop to address the issue when they address the stalling issue. If these issues are addressed, I think I will be very pleased with my purchase.
I’ll update my review after a few mows next spring.

Just got this mower and cut about 4 acres with it. Unbelievable!!!!! I wanted a commercial mower and this is it. The thing flies across the yard and makes a fine cut at the same time. A true grass monster and built like a tank.
My ten year old john deere has been falling apart for ten years so it was time. The cub cadet has the best warranty out there plus I got the 2 yr extended from tractor supply. A 6 yr warranty altogether.
Cant go wrong there The staff at shelby nc went above and beyond to help me get it, from Rachel the cashier to the stock guy in the back. Really good experience. And now that I have my TS credit card it can only get better.
Best mower ive ever owned! I read thru the reviews and decided to go with this model and already being a CC owner i was very familiar with the brand! Best decision ever made, thanks to all the reviewers I scored this awesome mower and would proudly put it up against any other mower!!!.
The Toro 60″ TITAN MAX Zero Turn Lawn Mower features a 60-inch, fabricated deck with a Kohler 7000 series engine and professional cannister air cleaner. This model features a step-through front end that saves times and effort when getting up to clear debris.
It also features a drop pin deck height adjustment to quickly and easily adjust cutting height. The heavy-duty rubber discharge chute allows you get even closer on edges without damaging the chute.
This is my first Zero Turn. Probably overkill for my 0. 28 acres, but I wanted more than a push mower and wanted the control of a zero turn and wanted to have something I didn’t need to keep gas sitting around for.
Overall the build quality seems great. I like the full metal frame and metal deck. Competitors are now moving to plastic and I just don’t think that would last for a mower. There’s some lighter paint coverage (dark spots) on the front wheel mount of mine, but it was the only one my local TSC had.
Driving it is smooth, control is great. I noticed that one side seems to be a little faster than the other. Not by much, but my lawn is not perfectly flat (it slopes down from the house to the sidewalk nearly all the way around) and I found that I had to adjust one of the bars further ahead than the other.
After mowing the first time (slowly and getting used to the mower), I had used 15% of the total battery (more later). Traction is okay. I had some wheel slip on what I would not consider complicated obstacles.
One front wheel got stuck in a 2″ rut where some recent sidewalk work had occurred and I needed to use both rear wheels to get it out (if I used one side only trying to go up the lower slope of the hole, it would just spin.
Maybe it’s my newness with zero turn mechanics?) I weigh ~230lbs with the mower, so I don’t know why the traction is light. I dropped the air pressure a little in the tires, maybe it will help this week.
I kind of wish reversing wasn’t such a huge difference (limited speed) from forward driving because it feels jarring to me when reversing that it feels limited too much. The seat could possibly use more adjustment to the rear.
I feel like I’m too far forward in relation to the control bars. (I’m 6’2″) I would rate it 4/5 because I think it’s a good mower and it seems like it will serve me well. It’s not perfect but close. Some minor nitpicks.
I pulled a star because of some confusion around the TSC site and the Greenworks documentation. My local TSC assembled the mower already, so I could not inspect all the parts and pieces that are supposed to come with it before I took it home.
I’m missing a QR code (never got any paperwork either) to apparently connect up the mobile app to the mower. I can connect the batteries. They handed me my batteries in a cardboard box from another product (beef jerky or something.
) The one associate that helped me made a mention to driving the other the floor model with the steering wheel around the store to try it out. I really didn’t care at first if they wanted to run it a bit, the 2 hours of run time mine had before I got it home is not going to impact the performance or quality.
If it does, there’s other issues, but if that’s why I got 3 different batteries then I would have preferred to just get the batteries sealed in their original box. I charged up all the batteries to 100% and after my first mow three of the batteries were lower than the other three.
This is my biggest concern, but it has a 4 year warranty. We’ll see how these batteries work out. I have marked them to keep an eye on the levels. I don’t know if I got three old/other batteries or if they just discharge at different rates depending on where they are in the slots.
The confusion around documents and features listed on the TSC site is that everything around this mower lists it having mulching capability as well as mulching blades, but TSC phone support confirmed with me that no mulching cover comes with this mower (although the sister model with the same mowing deck, but with a steering wheel, has a mulching cover.
) I mulch my lawn clippings and I was hoping to be able to continue doing this. So far TSC has stated no mulching kits are available and Greenworks apparently commented on another review that it’s not available.
I wish I had seen that before. I really don’t want to return a whole mower over this so I guess I wait to see. The user manual has a section on installing the mulching cover as well. It also states this mower has an ETO socket (2″ receiver port on the front of the mower) and the socket is there, but there’s no electronic ports or wires anywhere on the front of the mower and as far as I can tell there are only a handful of things you can even get to possibly put in this socket.
I’ve seen it on other zero turn mowers, but accessories seem to be non-existent.
I’ve been using Greenworks for years (push mower and weedwhacker) and those batteries still work great, so I decided to go for this ZT and. its amazing. Tractor Supply tossed in a free hedge trimmer and ZT mower cover, if they offer you a freebie I would recommend the blower since you can’t wash these mowers.
Its rated for one hour and 2 acres of use, but I seem to get about 3 1/2 acres consistently so range depends on the rider and the lay of the land. I love the trunk, I use it far more than I expected, I also use this ZT to tow a small garden trailer sometimes.
Its so easy to use my kids even like driving it (or going on rides in the trailer) :-). I live on 11 acres so I’ve cut everything from my front yard to the back pasture (at night, its so quiet it doesn’t bother anyone like a normal gas mower would and the headlights are actually effective!!).
With front yard style grass it cuts beautifully, my back pasture is more of a bush hog type situation but it breezes through that easily too with my deck set to 3. 5. So yeah, knee height grass and still easily breezes through 2 acres with room to spare on my batteries.
Batteries charge quickly too, only 90 minutes from empty to full recharge. Charge and store the batteries inside your house, these are lithium batteries so you don’t want to leave them in a garage that isn’t temp controlled.
The negatives are few-my left arm bar seems slightly higher than my right one, and it can’t be corrected. Attempts to call Greenworks customer service failed, nobody ever answered the phone, I stayed on hold until eventually Greenworks disconnected the call.
Lastly, the rear wheels are a bit too smooth for my taste. They’ll work great on flat land, but they tend to slip and slide on hills especially if there is any dew on the grass. If you have other 60V Greenworks tools then you’ll be even happier with this purchase, since the batteries you’ll get with this mower will really really increase the operating time of your tools.
This is due to the higher AH you get with the mower vs the tools (8AH vs 2AH).
I bought this to replace a 42″ Hustler Sport. I have 2. 3 acres with a little over 1 acre of grass lawn and have around 10 hours on the mower now. Below are my thoughts: Batteries: Heat is the battery killer and I love that that these have air vents for cooling.
The chargers and mower have fans which force air through the batteries which should help extend their lifetime. The capacity is great too. After mowing my 1 acre of grass I still have 60% charge and can use the mower for hours hauling my cart around with the charge level barely moving.
Battery charging is REALLY fast compared to my 40v Ryobi tools. Ride Comfort: Smoother than my old zero turn and the seat if very comfortable. Quality of Cut: Very happy. The anti scalp wheels work well and I am able to mow at a very good speed.
Mulch kit performance is great. Power/Performance: I have found that mowing with blade speed set to low and drive speed set to high is ideal. I haven’t found anything yet that requires the high blade speed setting.
Compared to my old hustler it is a little easier to accidentally spin a wheel if not careful. I have had to get smoother with the drive handle input. Utility: Towing works great and I use the rear cargo bed almost constantly.
Find a few pine cones you don’t want to run over? Throw them in the back! Want to bring pesticide? Keep a sprayer or bag of granules in the back while mowing. Maybe a bag of leveling sand for rough spots! I also compared this to the Ryobi zero turn and this one felt much more substantial when sitting on them.
The Greenworks looked like it belonged next to the other gas zero turns sitting next to it. Overall I am extremely happy and hope I am able to keep this mower for many years. I am considering switching from Ryobi 40v yard tools to Greenworks 60v tools if I continue to have no problems.
The Mustang Z42 is ideal for larger, flat to slightly hilly yards and is designed to reduce mowing time with dual hydrostatic transmission and true zero-turn capability. Featuring a heavy-duty, full length, fully welded, tubular frame, it’s built for added strength and durability in the yard.
The 679 cc Troy-Bilt twin cylinder engine provides plenty of power to mow larger lots for extended periods of time. Maintain control with the professional-style lap bar controls and engage the blades with push-button electric PTO blade engagement.
Deck clean up is easier with the integrated deck wash adapter. Simply attach a garden hose and rinse clippings away.
Summer is just too short to spend it outside sweating over lawn work. Toro’s 42 in. TimeCutter allows you to create both a beautiful lawn and still have plenty of time to host backyard pickup games, barbeques and more.
Even better, the mower’s compact design makes for easy storage. It’s also a snap to control your pace with Toro’s Smart Speed Technology. Pinpoint-quality cuts and zero-turn mowing are just two pro commercial contractor features that put Toro’s cutting-edge technology into the hands of homeowners.

So my mower died at the beginning of the season. I looked at several online and compared features and reviews. The reviews seemed pretty good on this unit. Unfortunately TSC did not have one assembled, but it was the las one within a 60mile radius and my grass was literally 12″ tall so I had to buy it sight unseen.
I sure wish I had paid someone to cut my grass that week and did more shopping. Overall this is not a good mower. First off, the most important of any mower is the cut. It just simply does not cut well.
I have winter rye still which is a little harder to get a good cut on, but this mower requires at least 2 passes to make sure the grass is cut. Since I have. 7 acres, that is now 1. 5 acres that I need to cut each week since I have to do it twice.
The seat is very uncomfortable. The high back is nice, but the lumbar is so far back on it that I feel like I am in a hunched position. My back is killing me by the time I’m done cutting. The tires are absolutely horrible.
If there is any kind of moisture on the ground at all they just spin. If there is the slightest of angle of the yard then the rear end wants to slide the hill. Literally, not even enough dew left to clump grass, but it’s enough to make this mower slide on about a 10 degree angle.
It gets stuck super easy if the front wheels roll over a root or anything because the rear tires have no grip. Since it was put together in a few hours by a TSC employee, the handles do not line up. My drive handles have at least 1.
5″ in difference in all positions. Makes it very difficult to track straight. The front wheel hubs are not greaseable. Mine were squeaking day one. It started with one and now both squeak. Not having greaseable hubs means that I need to literally jack the mower up and remove the wheels to grease the front axles rather than just a few squirts of grease on a fitting.
The rear plate might as well be made of paper. I use my ZT to pull small trailers around the yard, and I use it to park my trailers because of the maneuverability. The flimsy rear plate on this thing would never hold any weight so now I have lost another yard tool and will have to figure out that option.
The deck has no mounts to add a striping kit. I like the fact that it’s fabricated deck, but they can’t add either holes or mounts to add a striping kit? There are also no belt covers so I am sure it’s only a matter of time before a stick get ran over and goes directly into the belt and messes something up.
This is all after only owning this unit for 3 weeks. I am sure I will grow to hate it even more over time. Granted I am coming off of a commercial mower, but it’s a 1996 model with a 22hp motor and it will still out perform this mower.
I would consider this a mower for the yuppy in the burbs with an acre completely flat lot that just wants to own a new mower and when he’s talking to his neighbor he can say, “Check out this Bad Boy”.
My yard is by no means complicated, but this mower makes it complicated.
I really like the mower so far, very sturdy quality construction with obvious attention to detail. Bad Boy has established quality and performance. It’s my first zero turn and with the 60″ deck the task of mowing my yard is much faster and quality of cut is best I’ve ever had.
The ability to easily clean and maintain the unit with the flip up floor pan and seat is crucial to me coming from a maintenance background. I chose the Kohler 7000 Pro series motor because I have had good service out of Kohler motors on my wood splitter, generator and Cub Kadet riding mower.
The hydraulic drive units (3100) are technically “commercial grade” and are serviceable with a filter on each drive unit, again important for me and longevity of the mower, I believe in preventative maintenance not “Run to Fail”.
Bad Boy extended the oil drain tube to just below the frame to make it easy to place a drain pan on the floor below the drain tube. The front suspension makes the ride very soft and helps in transition areas (bumps and elevation changes).
The reason for the 4 star rating instead of 5 is due to my discovery that the unit came with wrong size rear tires. The website info and my owners manual on the ZT Elite says I should have 22x11x10 tires but my unit has 22x10x10.
I contacted Bad Boy via web site contact page about 10 days ago and have not heard back yet (gonna try again). They haven’t answered the phone and the contact phone numbers are confusing. Another issue is that the owners manual states to make sure your dealer registers your unit to activate the warranty within 30 days.
Problem is Tractor Supply is evidently not a dealer and does not notify Bad Boy so if I get in touch with them I will ensure “registration”. Kinda not the norm as I’m used to going to the web site and Registering my unit serial number and all pertinent information.
Finally I want to say my local TSC is Great and provided fantastic curbside pickup, they are the “Best”! They had the proper oil and filter for my mowers first 8 hour recommended change.
I bought this for the pricepoint. my mistake. I will try and make this an in depth review; I have a 3. 4 acre lawn. mostly flat with a couple of ditches to mow. this is NOT my first zero turn. I’ve run walker, Exmark and Ferris products; in comparison to a 60” toro this Bad Boy is like riding a brick on wheels.
the seat has poor comfort, when my unit showed up the controls were so out of adjustment that the left side control would run into my body before it would back up. the hydraulics are extremely noisy and inconsistent.
how it acts on one turn will be the different on the next one. the blade balance is off. it vibrates so bad at some points that it makes my hands go numb. it is fairly quiet. it is NOT fuel efficient.
it holds about 6 gallons and it burns almost 2 gallons an hour. It does have good side hill traction. its control station has no adjustability and if you are over 5’7” or have longer arms it will be uncomfortable to use for extended periods of time.
it leaves behind an excellent cut, the overall construction is very tough and some portions of it look like it would be easy to work on, however in my opinion after putting 12 or so hours on mine is that it is NOT worth the money paid for it.
I wish i could have demo’d one before buying in because the machine has left a sour taste.
