Expensive for a consumer level mower but works well
I have just under an acre I tend to. Here in Florida, mowing the grass can be as frequent as every five days in the summer if you want to keep the lawn looking tidy. The Snapper Hydrodrive walk behind mower I purchased used in 1998 had served me well but it had three years of commercial use before I bought it and the put it through another twelve years of moderate use.

I have just under an acre I tend to. Here in Florida, mowing the grass can be as frequent as every five days in the summer if you want to keep the lawn looking tidy. The Snapper Hydrodrive walk behind mower I purchased used in 1998 had served me well but it had three years of commercial use before I bought it and the put it through another twelve years of moderate use. It still worked well but was showing its age and I wanted a sit-down mower. I've got a lot of trees, planting beds, and other obstacles so I wasn't interested in a tractor style mower. I've had a little experience on commercial zero-turn mowers and thats the direction I decided on for me. The Toro SS4235 is what I settled on. I liked the twin-cylinder engine, high back seat, and plenty of service and parts sources in my area. The SS4235 arrived at my local Toro dealer about a week after I ordered it from HD's website. The purchase included free setup and delivery which was carried out by the Toro dealer. The dealer called me and arranged a time for delivery the next day. The delivery person gave me a basic rundown of the machine but I hurried him along his way. His presentation was annoyingly simple but I understand not everyone has experience with this sort of machine of even a basic mechanical background. The SS4235 starts instantly with a twist of the ignition key and I have yet to use the choke. I keep the speed lever on the slower setting since I have more close quarters maneuvering than open mowing. Even though my old Snapper had differential steering, the SS4235 still took me about an hour of use before I could freely maneuver without much thought. Height adjustment of the mowing deck is very easy but I keep it at its maximum setting of 4-1/2" for my thick St. Augustine lawn. I never understand why so many people mow their grass so short needlessly stress the grass, increasing it's need for irrigation, and making their lawn more susceptible to weeds. The SS4235 leaves an attractive even cut. The large wheels seem to cause minimal stress to the grass as long as you don't make sharp turns. Sharp turns do cause the rear tires to chew up the grass leaving unattractive spots as the tires scrub in opposite directions. Not a criticism of the SS4235 though as the same thing happens with every zero-turn mower I've ever used. Smoother turf tires alleviate the problem some but at a loss of some traction if you need to mow steeper grades. I suspect the scrubbing during sharp turns will decrease a bit as the rear tires wear a little. Overall I think the machine is well built. So far after about 12 hours of use, I've had no issues. However this is not a commercial lever mower. The materials are lighter, the deck is stamped sheet metal rather than welded, and there is a lot of plastic. Though keep in mind the SS4235 is not advertised as a commercial mower either. I'm just a little skeptical how well it will hold up with time and being that it cost $2,500, its a significant investment for most homeowners. Overall I'm happy with the machine. It leaves a great looking lawn, is comfortable to use, operation is very simple... and its got a cup holder!
