Toro LX 500 Lawn Tractor
We got this last year and use it to mow 1.5 acres of fairly level property. Plenty of power, reliable, comfortable and easy to handle and maneuver.
Wide deck cuts down on the mowing time, finishes in 2 rather than 3 hours with my old 38"rider with an uncomfortable seat.
Easy to service and Toro customer support is great, they even have live response that knows what it is talking about and answer quickly instead of putting you on hold or tell you to contact the local dealer for help like others do.
Highly recommended for anyone with a yard as big as ours.
Even though the tractor had been in storage at Home Depot over the winter, Toro gave a full 2 year warranty from purchase date, not date of manufacture.
This is my first Toro and I think it is as good as my 14 year old Deere was when I first bought it; I look forward to keeping it on the job for many years to come.
