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.

Can't kill it
by: TGD

I bought this new in 2007 and here we are in 2019 and it's still running like a champ. I have 60+acres of rough land in northern NY and the Toro was used for both finish mowing and rough cutting through tall grass and brush for 7 years. When the deck finally had enough and I removed it. Now it's used daily each summer for towing a trailer, a lawn sweep, a roller and a drag harrow. I had to replace the drive belt once and will again soon. I also put on a better starter and adjusted the valves. Other than that it's just the occasional oil and air filters and grease. It's not pretty anymore but it's taken a beating and held up better than my Deere D170. The CVT drives on these will outlast any consumer end hydro-drives today.
