Rated 3 out of 5??by Millertw Disappointed in performance
Bogs down or shuts off when cutting grass. I have been using in mulch mode.

Rated 2 out of 5??by Gary10 Questionable Dependability
Like how easy this lawnmower is to use, but after only 4 weeks (4 yard mowings), the self-propel drive stopped working. Mighty inconvenient taking back to dealer for repair.

Rated 4 out of 5??by Artyjoe42 Personal Pace is why I chose this mower.
This is the third Toro I've had and I still think their Personal Pace self propel is what distinguishes the Toro from other brands.
However, I think my old 20+ year Toro was superior in the way the Personal Pace is controlled. 'The speed of the old self propel was controlled by squeezing the control bar - the tighter you squeeze, the faster it went. The new one is controlled by pushing the control bar which is less convenient if you're not directly behind the mower when turning around or mowing around obstacles.
The Bag On Demand and wash out port is superior to my old mower, but it's not a big deal for me since I never bag my clippings.
The Toro OHV engine is another reason I bought Toro again . The previous mower (with a Toro GTS OHV engine) was still starting with one or two pulls after 20+ years, and it had a lot of hours on it because at one time it was used to mow a 10,000 sq. ft. lot 2-3 times a week - so much that the tires have been bald for the last 15 years.

Rated 5 out of 5??by Mike61 This is by far the best mower I have ever owned
This mower does a fabulous job. It starts with 1 pull every time and runs beautifully. I actually look forward to mowing because it does such a great job and is so dependable and so very easy to use. We just love this mower!

Rated 2 out of 5??by hoppster Thought I was buying a Toro
Purchased this mower back in August of 2012 and used it part of that summer and to date. This summer the motor is belching out a blue cloud of smoke when I start it for the first time. This does not give me a positive feeling about the longevity of this motor or the mower.
Out to lunch on the brand as of now....

Rated 5 out of 5??by Ron42 Very easy to operate.
When I got the mower home and went to use it the engine started on one pull. However, when I tried to engage the blade the engine died. Tried a few times and finally took it back to the dealer. They found the clutch shield was not installed properly at the factory. The dealer fixed the problem. Went home and mowed the lawn. Very satisfied with the mower.

Rated 4 out of 5??by Jebdog33 Excellent features, i.e. blade stop, guarantee start, stop button, easy bag
This mower has all the features necessary for handling residetntial yards. Easy start; stop blade eliminates re-starting engine when stopping to empty bag, picking up objects, etc. Easy switch from bagging to mulching to side discharge. On/off switch and one or two pulls start engine. Personal pace allows for mowing at one's walk speed. The only drawback thus far is difficulty in manuevering mower in tight space and turning due to mower weight.
