  • Smart Speed® Control System
  • 127 cm Cutting Width
  • Heavy-Duty Construction

The TimeCutter® ZS5000 zero turn mower is powered by a Toro 708 cc V-Twin engine. It features a 127 cm 12 gauge steel, 10.2 cm deep, dome mowing deck with convenient washout port for cleaning under the deck. Comes with an 45.7 cm extra-tall seat for added comfort.

Heavy Duty Rear Engine Guard

This heavy duty steel guard protects the engine from branches and debris as you nimbly maneuver around your lawn.

11.4 L fuel capacity

All TimeCutter riding mowers feature a large 11.4 litre fuel tank for more mowing with fewer fill-ups. Knowing when to fill up is simple thanks to the translucent tank, which also helps to prevent overfilling.

127 cm Mowing Deck

Toro’s 10.2 cm deep, top discharge deck design provides superior cutting performance in all conditions. Anti-scalp wheels allow the deck to float over the turf and reduce scalping. Create your own natural fertiliser by adding a Recycling® Kit or make garden clean-up a snap with an optional Twin Bagging system.

Washout Ports

Deck washout ports create a pressure washer under your deck providing quick cleaning, maintaining optimum airflow for optimum cutting performance. 127 cm deck is pictured.

Hitch Kit Standard

Hitch kit comes standard on all TimeCutter models. It’s easy to increase the versatility of your zero turn mower by attaching a dump cart, de-thatcher, fertilizer spreader or other Brinly-Hardy attachments. (Attachments sold separately.)

Dual Hydrostatic Drive System

Independent hydrostatic drive systems provide responsive manoeuvrability and zero turning capabilities. These independent drives are anchored to Toro’s unibody frame and reinforced with a cross member for lasting durability and performance.

Save on Average 45% of your MowingTime

Automatic Parking Brake

Automatically engaged when the control arms are moved outward. Simplifies operation by eliminating a separate parking brake.

Smart Speed® Control - Trim, Tow, Mow

Toro’s Smart Speed® control system lets you choose from three ground speed ranges for optimal performance. Use low TRIM range to trim closer for maximum time savings, choose medium TOW range for towing attachments, or select high MOW range to mow large open areas and finish quickly.

Extra Tall Seat

When you’re mowing for an extended period, there’s no substitute for a good seat. The 45.7 cm extra tall high back seat offers maximum support during longer mowing sessions.

Non-Slip, Easy-to-Clean Floor Pan

The pierced floor pan is perfect for homeowners who like their mower to look as nice as their lawn. Simply hose down the floor pan after each use and keep your TimeCutter looking as good as new. The non-slip pierced extrusions also provide an additional measure of safety.
