Q: How many settings are on the cutting height?

Q: What is the difference between Personal Pace and Self Propelled?
by Steve Brasington from South Carolina on April 09, 2015

A: Steve - Toro's "Personal Pace" system is one type of self-propelled drive system on a walk behind mower. The Personal Pace self-propel system automatically adjusts the speed of the mower to your walking speed. With a normal self-propelled system, the speed of the mower is controlled with a bail, a lever or some other mechanical means.

Great Mower!
Great little mower, I bought it to mow some hilly terrain I don't feel comfortable using my subcompact Massey Ferguson on and it does a great job. It bags and mulches really well and also does a good job scattering the clippings with the side discharge if you don't want to mulch or bag.

The traction on this thing is great, it goes up steep terrain with no issues, I was really amazed with how well it worked. I also really like the water clean-out, it really does a good job. My only knock... more

Not Happy
Got my mower two years ago, have had trouble starting it all the time. Been told to use fresh gas less than 30 days old. I can drive to town for a quart of gas every time need to mow. Doubt if it has 10 hours of work and will not start "exseptable."

Manufacturer Response
Brand Rep
Ace,
We are sorry to hear you are having problems with your Toro mower. Since you have already tried using fresh non-ethanol gas, other possible starting causes include:

• Loose, Dirty or Disconnected Spark Plug in Your Lawn Mower: Check it out, clean off debris, re-connect and tighten.
• Dirty Air Filter: Clean or replace.
• Fuel Not Reaching the Engine: Tap the side of the carburetor to help the flow of gas. If this doesn't work, you might need a new fuel filter.

If you are still experiencing issues with your Toro mower, please bring your unit to the nearest dealer for servicing. Please call our customer service number if you have any other questions (888) 384-9939 (toll free).

Disappointed In Mowers Direct.
First this is a great mower. I own a lawn company and we picked up a few lawns with hills. The mower works great! The other side is with the retailer.

I paid 429 for the mower, I went to Home Depot and they had it for 399. I purchased 4 more mowers from them. The problem I have is that I contacted mowers direct the same day as purchase asking for the refund.

This is the first contact mowers direct made with me. Go to Home Depot.

Just Right!!
I bought this online from Mowers Direct. It arrived in 3 days and was ready to go 15 minutes after I got it. It has worked perfectly and is easy to start and take care of. I give it 5 stars. one recommendation - - a holder for a cold brew on the handle for those hot days.

oh yeah :)

Everything Plus
I purchased this mower for two reasons, to replace a rider that was worn out and had become a maintenance issue and as a means of exercise. I mow half an acre, centipede and St. Augustine, fairly level, good amount of flowers and shrubbery.

Mower is a piece of cake, the self drive feature is fabulous, I have learned to use the adjustments to make it a walk behind dream, excellent source of exercise, mows just as advertised, far more economical that the rider. Everything I had hoped for and... more

Toro Rocks
Super fast shipping and an easy ordering experience was a nice surprise for an out-of-state order. Good price and free shipping provided me with the incentive to order from Mowers Direct. After receiving the mower, it assembled easily and I was mowing in 20 minutes.

It doesn't have a primer bulb, but after 10 pulls, it started and didn't quit. The 2nd time, it started on the first pull. I'm a bagger so I haven't tried the mulching yet, but I plan to. It has a hose connector and washing... more

Hillbilly Land
Mowers Direct is great in shipping, had no problem with that at all. Ordered it on a Tuesday, had it on Thursday.
The problem I had was the poor assembly of the mower.

The left rear wheel fell off the first time we used it, "Bolt came loose and fell off." Well I don't blame Mowers Direct for that at all but, if you get this mower, make damn sure ever thing is tight. Otherwise this mower proved itself as a hillside mower as we learned in WV that the smaller wheels hold better... more

Good Mower For Sloped Lawns
I have a steep ,sloped lawn. I have been looking at several AWD options to purchase. I am glad that I purchased this mower as it makes the mowing task much easier. So far the engines cranks with one or two pulls.
