Built to last, AND designed for user comfort, the MX5480 features a thickly padded Toro premium seat and padded armrests, dual oversized Comfort Grip™ levers with hydraulic dampers, and full 3-D isolation.

2015 Floating Fabricated Deck

This deep, fully welded steel mowing deck is ultra tough and features a bull-nose bumper reinforcement for maximum strength and protection in rough cutting conditions,

Fully Tubular Frame

A 1.5" X 3.0" (3.8 cm x 7.6 cm) fully tubular frame forms the rock solid foundation for the rest of the mower. The large continous frame tubes have seamless sides with no welded joints which provides maximum strength.

2015 Heavy Duty Spindles

The deck used on this model is equipped with huge heavy duty 7.75" (19.7 cm) diameter aluminum spindle housings that contain 1" (2.5 cm) diameter spindle shafts and oversized sealed bearings.

Hydro-Gear ZT3100

The ZT3100 hydrostatic transmission has an internal, maintenance-free brake; a guarded, spin-on filter; and is significantly easier to maintain versus a wheel pump and motor system. Plus, the ZT3100 has fewer leak points by design so homeowners can be confident their machine's drive system is virtually bullet proof.

22" x 10" (56 cm x 25.4 cm) Rear Tires

These large, wide tires provide a smoother ride over rough terrain than smaller diameter tires. The width helps reduce turf compaction. The special tread provides the right mix of traction and reduced turf tear.

12" x 6" (30.5 cm x 15.2 cm) Smooth Front Tires

Professional landscape contractors know that smooth tires reduce turf wear and improve maneuverability.

Foot Operated HOC

This system allows you to quickly raise and lower the deck while mowing without taking your hands off of the controls. The HOC has a range from 1.5" - 4.5" (3.8 cm - 11.4 cm) with 13 positions in quarter inch increments making sure there is a setting just right for you and your lawn.

Removable Floor Pan

Removal of the floor pan allows you easy access to the top of the deck for cleaning off grass clippings. The floor pan is also pierced to give it a textured grip and natural drain holes.

Rubber Discharge Deflector

A flexible rubber discharge deflector is found on most commercial zero turn mowers and allows you to mow tightly around objects without damaging the deflector.

Engine Guard

This guard protects the engine on the sides and rear from objects that might damage your engine.

Premium Toro Seat

The premium seating system on the TITAN is truly a leader in comfort. The extra thick seat foam is contoured to envelope the operator in comfort and help hold you in place when traversing rough terrain. The seat is further cushioned by a unique adjustable seat spring suspension allowing you to have anywhere from 2 to 5 springs underneath the seat to give you customized support. A four-inch (10.2 cm) seat slide is adjustable while seated to help give you just the right fit. Adjustable armrests come standard.
