  5 Questions
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.

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.

I've purchased a 21 inch Toro model 20055, 5 years ago and still going strong. Since I live in Orlando, Fl. I mow about 10.5 months a year. I haven't had any problems with it and I mow for a full hour every week! I do oil the wheels and grease the rear ones once a month. Every 6 months change the engine oil and store it inside a shed. Would like to see a lighter mower, like a plastic housing similar to Honda and grease fittings on the front wheels. The self-propell personal pacer option is... more

Toro 22" Recycler Mower
This rear wheel drive has given me nothing but trouble since I bought it. The gears on the inside of the wheels are plastic and the gears on the axle are metal. That is about all that needs to be said. Bought 2 new wheels and gears for $90.00 and did not even last one mowing. Worst mower I have ever had and will never buy another one. Only 2 years old and have to junk it. Really cheap mower for what u pay for.

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

Starts Super Easy But......
This mower was great right from the beginning, but in my second season of mowing the blade started to disengage even in short cut grass, I don't know why its doing it and can't find any instructions on how to adjust it or even if I can adjust. It is nice being able to walk away from the mower and it stay running, but if this feature is going to hinder me getting the lawn mowed, I'd rather trash this piece of crap and go back to the traditional self propelled mower. Not a big fan of this model... more

Personal Pace Great, Rear Drive Quality Poor
The Personal Pace feature works as advertised, walk faster and it goes faster. Like many others, the rear drive has issues mainly related to plastic gears on the rear wheels and plastic bushings on the rear axles. Everything wears out after about 3 seasons. As it wears, wheels lock up when you try to pull the mower backwards, though the forward motion is relatively unaffected. Will only mulch well with dry, shorter grass. I don't even try to mulch in the spring, though I do cut at lower,... more

Easy To Use
Needed a lawn mower badly. Ordered this mower and it arrived in only a few days. I never called the company to complain, but one of the wheel levers came broken. Making the front wheels almost impossible to raise or lower. living on an island, sometimes products go through rough times before they arrive. Needing a mower so badly, an exchange, return shipping, etc. was not going to happen - so we kept the mower and tried really hard to adjust the front wheels. Now that we have the mower in... more

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

Electric start only good thing I can say about this machine. Bought from Home Depot, dumb should have known better. In shop 3 times because it would only run for 5-10 minutes. Shops could not find problem and Toro Co. no help. About 120 dollars worth of no help. I finely figured it out, no vent connected to the fuel tank. I drilled very small hole in the cap and the problem was solved. Will not cut if grass is more than a couple of inches tall no power or the slightest damp. Will not... more
