Rated 1 out of 5??by JR1969 Avoid this mower
I've already had my mower returned for replacement of the self-propel mechanism, after only 4 uses. Had it for less than 60 days. Even at elevated cutting heights, it leaves ruts and lots of piles. The engine is very weak compared to the previous engine that I had on a 10 year old Toro. My neighbor has a current Toro that he's let me borrow to cut very wet grass and which uses the 190cc engine. I've had zero difficulty cutting through grass with it and it leaves little trace of ruts or piles of grass clippings. This is a very disappointing mower, the weak engine being the culprit.

Rated 5 out of 5??by JustMyOpinion Maneuverability and ease of use excellent.
The variable speed and rear-wheel-drive make this mower very easy to manipulate. The blade action cut-off is a great safety feature as well as making the engine more easily started w/o the torque needed to turn the blade.

Rated 4 out of 5??by Benny57 Good but had an issue
Overall the mower is good except I had an issue within the first year of owning the mower. The spring broke that engages the personal pace motor. Other then that a great product

Rated 3 out of 5??by Bearcat Unlike my 3 previous Toros
Purchased May 2014. Now in Toro repair shop (16th workday).
Started okay, but stalled out when blade engaged. Choke line bent, added too much fuel to engine. Now needs new carb kit due to too much fuel. Not covered by warranty.
I do not use bagger, mower only used for trimming.

Rated 5 out of 5??by KeyWasted So far so good
This is replacing a Toro model 20073 new in 2007 which is leaking oil all over so I cannot give a better dependability rating yet. But this unit is much improved over the previous unit, it sucks up leaves and mulches them better, while filling the bag more. The spin stop feature works great which allowed me to forgo an electric start because only one pull is need now. Bag removal and attaching is improved, but did pop loose over a bumpy area. Pricing of this unit is also favorable compared to other brands and it is carried by my local hardware store so I am able to support my community.

The self propelled feature is not working already.
Should I take it to Midwest Equipment in Peoria?

Personal Pace is the best thing that has been created for the lawnmower industry, easy to learn and handle. The Spin Stop is another wonderful feature which helps you a lot whenever you are mowing your grass and has to stop for any reason, the engine stays on while the blade stops moving. The only thing that I am not too happy about is that there is no oil drain plug underneath the mower, but you have to turn the mower on the side in order to drain the machine. Easy to clean; It also has an electric button to turn the machine off after you are done mowing. Also, I think it's easier to turn the machine on for at least five minutes every week than to drain the oil and the fuel to store the machine during the winter time. Good machine! I hope it last many many years!!!!!!
