  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.
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.

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.

Toro 20332 Self-propell Problems P.o.s.
Well I have had a Toro Personal Pace Recycler mower for 5 years. Motor knocks but still runs. Rear self propelled is a problem on all these mowers. Last year it really started making a lot of grinding noise from the wheels. So I bought new wheels and new belt. I installed them and it was like brand new for one use. I was pissed, so I read so much on the web about the problems.

Well I found the problem.Poor design from Toro. Come to find out it is alignment with the rear wheels. The bracket... more

4 Seasons And Scrapped
Bought based on Consumer Reports. The Self Propel mechanism is pretty seamless and has some nice features. Unfortunately I expect lawnmowers to last, Never had a lawnmower not last over 10 years and maintain them to do so. The rear wheels needed to be replaced after 3 years, Dealt with it for one more year. The deck where the wheels attach has fractured and the wheels are coming off. Like other reviews the engine bogs down and wound up doing most the pushing up grades. Just not worth... more

Upside Of Ok
Bought one in '14. Used it, relentless, till I needed a second mower, different application. I did replace the transmission, due to my negligence, but outside of that, it is my best mower. Reliable. Nice, clean cuts.

Not As Advertised
It always takes at least two or three pulls to get it started when cold. After cutting for 15 to 30 minutes it will NOT RESTART if I stop for some reason. 10 to 12 pulls should be enough to get it going. I try not to stop during cutting sessions but it isn't always convenient. If I stop for any reason I'll have to wait until the next day to sart it with 2 or 3 more pulls. "Guaranteed to Start?" -- apparently it's only a marketing tagline

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

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.

Brand Rep
Bobby,
Wheel pinions have been replaced by metal on all 22"" Toro Recycler Models over the past few years. Wheel pinions will not wear out like their former plastic counterparts.

For starting issues please bring your Toro mower to the nearest dealer for servicing within three years of your purchase date and Toro will fix your unit for free. Please call our customer service number if you have any other questions (888) 384-9939 (toll free).

Value!
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
