Q: I recently purchased a new toro lawn mower. I am not sure how to change the oil on the machine. Is there a tutorial of how to do so?
by Luis Ceja from New York on June 12, 2014

A: The following is available on the Toro website under their FAQ section....

How do I change the oil in my mower?
For Recycler® and Super Recycler® mowers:

Recommended Oil type for Toro Walk Behind Mowers, 4-Cycle engines - SAE 30W Detergent oil with an API service classification of SF, SG, SH, SJ, SL, or higher.

-Run the engine for five minutes to warm the oil so it drains better. (Recommend only filling fuel tank with enough gas to run for five minutes before changing oil.)
-Remove the dipstick.
-Tip the mower onto its side (air filter side up) to drain the used oil out through the oil fill tube into a drain pan. (Tipping the machine on its side is the recommended method by engine manufacturers.)
-Let oil drain completely.
-Tip the mower back up on its wheels and slowly pour new oil into the oil fill tube until oil level reaches the FULL line on the dipstick. (To properly check the oil level , wait one or two minutes after filling the engine with oil to allow it to settle. Wipe the dipstick clean, reinsert dipstick, remove dipstick and check oil level, repeat the process a second time.)
-Important Do Not overfill - If you overfill the engine with oil you will need to remove the excess oil by following the oil draining steps listed above. Too much oil can cause engine damage or failure.

For complete step-by-step instructions, please consult your Owner's Manual or view our interactive smart manual by selecting your model number from the list below.

Q: Oil drain plug where is it
by Dave from Michigan on August 18, 2011

A: Dave - the Toro Recycler mowers (including the 20334) do not have an oil drain plug. To drain the oil, you would (1) run the engine a few minutes before changing the oil to warm it. (2) move the mower to a level surface. (3) remove the dipstick. (4) tip the mower onto its side with the air filter up to drain the used oil out through the oil fill tube.

Q: I own a TORO 20330 ser#310058489. The top speed is too fast for me and it is difficult to hold the speed lever at the right speed. Can the top speed of this mower be adjusted slower?
by Jame W. Norris from Wisconsin on June 14, 2011

A: James - The maximum self-propel ground speed on the Toro Recycler self-propelled mowers is fixed. To reduce the ground speed, increase the space between
the self-propel drive bar and the handle.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: I have this lawn mower and it is smoking some. I was told it needs water. Where do I put the water?
by Tonya from New Jersey on June 03, 2011

A: Tonya - this mower has an air cooled engine. You cannot put water in it. If it's smoking, chances are you put too much oil in the crankcase and the mower is just burning off the excess oil. Or it could be something more serious, like a stuck or worn piston ring. If the mower doesn't stop smoking after your next couple of times using it, I would recommend taking it to a qualified service center for diagnosis.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: How much oil does this mower takehold in its tank?
by Tabatha from Utah on April 13, 2011

A: Thanks for your inquiry. This mower will about 20 oz of oil.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: What is your #1 recommendation for a self propelled mower?

What does Recycler mean?

by Gary from Mississippi on March 09, 2011

A: Thanks for your inquiry. My recommendation for a self propelled lawn mower would be a Honda HRC216K3HXA. The easy starting, reliability, and low noise level of the Honda GXV engine sets this model apart from other self propelled mowers. See link below.

Honda Mower

To answer your question about the term Recycler. Toro uses the term "Recycler" in reference to their cutting system. The Recycler cutting system minces grass clippings into fine mulch particles for a healthy, beautiful lawn thanks to the Toro-patented atomic blade.

My New Toro
This mower is a replacement for the one that I lost during Superstorm Sandy. I was very happy with the old one (I especially like the "Personal Pace feature) so I bought the same machine. The new one has a couple of improvements - a port for a garden hose to clean under the mower deck, and a door to allow switching from collecting clippings to mulching without removing the bag. A very nice machine!
Pros: Easy To Use, Features, I'd Buy It Again, Fast

Terrible Mower - Save Your Money
The mower certainly does not start in 1-2 pulls as advertised but that is the least of my concerns. I have had the cable which engages the blade break twice on me now. Part of the cable is made of plastic and cannot stand the force needed to engage the blade. The first cable was factory installed, the second was replaced by a Toro authorized repair shop. This is poor engineering at its finest. 20 cents worth of metal would make this problem non-existent. I would never buy this product again -... more
Cons: Unreliable, Low Quality, Durability, Difficult To Use

So Far, Another Good Toro!
I had a Toro FWD 22" for 15 years. For twelve of those years, I cut my half acre lawn in MA. Did my own service, never a problem. Moved to FL in 2008 and continued to use the old Toro. In FL we have St. Augustine grass. I have mine professionally fertilized and it is very thick. Felt the old Toro was getting on in years and I may be better off with RWD with this new type of grass. Bought the Toro 20322. So far GREAT! Out of box, 10 mins and started on first pull. Starts on first... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Features, Reliable

Won't Start When Hot And Leaves Strips Of Grass On Right Side
Have owned for one month and am returning to the Big Box store. Twice I've needed to take a short 10 min break when I return to continue mowing, it won't start. Because there's no priming bulb, it appears to just keep adding gas and floods. In one case it started the next morning in the other case it wouldn't start the next day and required the spark plug to be removed in order to clear the gas.

I've also been really frustrated by the amount of poorly mulched grass that is deposited on... more
Pros: Price, Features
Cons: Unreliable, Awful Mulching

Not A Good Lawn Mower
Bought this mower in October 2009. I bag my grass clipping. When the bag is about half full, I'm pushing the lawn mower more than the self-propelled drive. My previous mower had a 160cc engine, which had more power than this 190cc engine.
The self-propelled drive broke after 4 summers. There was grinding by the back wheels/gear box for a while and then the self-propelled drive stopped working. I brought the mower in to a Toro Authorized Service Dealer where I was told it would cost about $200... more
Cons: Low Quality, Heavy, Under-powered

Great Mower
Ordered mower, it was delivered 2 days later. Filled with oil and fuel, started on first pull and continues to start on first pull. Very happy with purchase. Will order from Mowers Direct again when power equipment is needed. Thanks.

How To Safely Use Your Lawn Mower
We're adults here. Most of us know how to safely use a lawn mower.

Kids, however, aren't as experienced.

If you have small children, you should be required by law to watch this video.

Too many kids get hurt because their parents don't act responsibly.

No Satisfaction From Company On Performance
No power, motor too small, bogs down & quits if grass is even slightly long. Had it in shop 4X for not starting.
Phoned company & got a lot of double talk about my concern & they said it was policy not to do anything or give credit towards a better machine. Do not purchase from HOME DEPOT as once they have your
$$$ they don't want to see you again & Toro Inc. is no help.
Cons: Low Quality, Unreliable, Bad Instructions, Not Satisfied
