  9 Questions
Q: Just purchased this Toro Recycler® SmartStow (22") 190cc Self-Propelled Lawn Mower.
Two questions please; How is the Variable Speed Self-Propelled Drive System controlled? It goes so fast I am not able to manage it safely. (The features/specs say" Variable Speed). Does this engine require fuel to be mixed with oil?
Thank you, John

by John from Kansas on May 14, 2016

A: John - the speed of the Toro 20339 is controlled by the back bail handle (appears to be under the top of the handle in the image of this mower). As you pull this bail lever up, the speed of the mower will increase. The further "up" you pull the bail handle, the faster the mower will travel. This mower has a 4-cycle engine. You do not mix gas and oil together. Gas goes in the fuel tank and oil goes in the crankcase, just like on your car.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: I recently purchased the Smart Tow mower. Does a great job cutting. However, I am 6 ft 2 inc tall, and 65 years old. I was surprised at the stress it places on my back. It seems the handle is not high enough. Is there an adjustment to raise the handle?

Thank you.
Pete

by Pete from Illinois on May 04, 2016

A: Pete - sorry, but the handle height is not adjustable on the Toro model 20339 mower.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Is the 20339 model an electric start
by Walt from Virginia on April 24, 2016

A: Walt - the Toro model 20339 mower is recoil (rope pull) start only. No electric start.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Does this model need annual oil changes?
by B. Harvey from Missouri on April 24, 2016

A: Yes, the Briggs and Stratton 190cc engine on the Toro 20339 does require regular oil changes. The frequency of the oil changes is dependent on how often you use the mower, and how long it runs each time you use it. But once annually would be the minimum recommended period for changing the oil.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Hi Jose. Does this model have varialble speed rather one speeed fits all?
by Jim from Oklahoma on April 16, 2016

A: Jim - there is no throttle control on the Toro 20339 mower. The engine will run at a constant rpm rate when it's running
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Does the Toro Recycler® SmartStow (22") 190cc Self-Propelled Lawn Mower have side discharge as well as a bag Thanks
by Kim from North Carolina on March 31, 2016

A: Kim - yes, the Toro model 20339 Smart Stow mower has a side discharge option. If you look at the image on our web site, the black cover on the right side of the mower deck between the front and rear wheels is the side discharge opening. You would remove that black cover. There is a deflector that snaps into place over the opening if you want to discharge your clippings rather than bagging them.

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.

Mowers Direct Recommended

The Toro 20339 Smart Stow mower has a great feature that allows the mower to be stored vertically to reduce the foot print needed to store. This feature prevents fluid leaks so no need to worry about gas and oil getting on your garage floor.

With the powerful Briggs & Stratton 190cc ready-to-start engine, there is no need to choke or prime the engine, just start and go. The 11-inch rear wheels on the Toro 20339 are great for mowing uneven terrain and give you good traction and control. ... more

Just In Time
Our old lawn mower was seriously on it's very last leg. So, it was either buy a new mower, or pay someone to do it for us. Since we're not THAT rich, we decided to buy a new one. This one was my husband's choice. I had never purchased anything this big online before and didn't know quite what to expect. So I Googled this mower and decided to purchase from Mowers Direct. It couldn't have been easier. It only took me about 5 minutes online to do it. What made the deal really sweet was... more

Did Not Start
I received my new mower very quickly and when I opened the box which was slightly damaged, I noticed the box had oil stains and the mower was covered in oil.

I called Customer Service and was told that since I opened the box I could not return the mower and would have to take it to a service center for repair. The mower would not start.

Great Mower!
Arrived on time. Assembly was minimal. After adding oil and gasoline, it started on first pull. Very simple to change bed height. Mows very well. Very satisfied.

This is a very light mower, so it's easy to let it get away from you, I.e., easy to get off track as front end is so light. I'm getting used to it though.

Very Happy
The mower arrived with a broken wheel. Mowers Direct had Fed Ex out the next day and I had my new mower in two days. The first cut was a long wet lawn. This mower just acted like it was no big deal. Have used it four times since and couldn't be happier.

Push Handle Too Low.
When I studied the reviews on this model, I read a review warning about the handles being too low on this model. I assumed perhaps it was reviewed by a tall person. My assumption was wrong.

I am a medium height male and I find pushing the low handle mower very uncomfortable. I should have bought a different model. Everything else about the mower is fine. If you're a short person, I recommend the mower.

Good Finish On Lawn, But Not What I Expected.
So easy, out the box - raise the handles, fill with oil and gas and, yes, it started second pull. It runs much quieter than all my previous mowers and the cut is OK.

I am very disappointed with the lack of pull from the front drive wheels, very disappointed!!! My garden has a slope, and the grass is not the best in the world - by a long way and there are valleys, not huge, but the biggest, about 2 feet by 2 feet, where no grass grows. The mower struggles to get up the slope, the front drive... more

I cut my lawn only with the toro walk behind mower. I have used these mowers for years. they are tough and easy to maintain with proper maintenance care. it truly is one of the best noncommercial brands for the home consumer.
i only wish they would make a 24" one for home use. this would cut down my mowing time.

Perfect For A Retired Woman.
Easy directions, cut the mowing time in half. Loved that you cut the box from the mower instead of lifting it out of the box.

Not A Very Good Mower
I had an old Toro Mower that worked a lot better. This new mower stalls every time it slants or is on any kind of side hill. It is under warranty, so I will get it looked at, but what a pain in the butt. It's brand new and I am in no shape to be hoisting a 90 lb. lawnmower into a trunk, not to mention the waste of time and effort! It did arrive in a timely manner though.

Brand Rep

It's A B+ Mower.
I use the mower to mow about 3/4 to an acre of rough rocky terrain. The multiple height settings and large rear wheels help negotiate my terrain. The wheels are set in to allow a close mow on the sides, but the rear wheels stick out the back and the front wheel drive mechanism in the front do not allow a close mow front or rear. My old Lawn Boy rear wheel mower was difficult to back up.

The Toro mower backs nicely. The Toro seems to use more gas and seems like it is not as built as well... more
