Q: Who makes the engine on the toro mod. 20381. And what horse power is it.
by David Lehner from New York on April 19, 2014

A: David - the Toro 20381 has a Toro brand engine that is designed and built by Toro. There is no true conversion from cc's to HP but 159cc is roughly equal to about 5 HP

Great Mower
The best mulching mower I've ever used. Easy starting, and Love the deck clean-out hose attachment. Only thing is, sometimes the "personal pace" propulsion doesn't fully disengage making backing up a bit of a challenge. I have and will continue to recommend this mower and Power Equipment Direct too my family, friends (and as my wife says) anyone who will stand and listen.

Does The Job But Poor Quality
I owned this mower for 2 years and it worked well enough. Started every time, I liked the fact that mower continued to run while I emptied the bag (blade stopped), the personal pace worked well. At the end of my 2nd mowing season, the brake cable broke. Really?!?! After only 2 years. More specifically a plastic hinge on the brake cable broke. As a mechanical engineer I appreciate the use of plastics where possible but this is not the place. The overall use of plastics on this mower was a... more

Too Early To See If Starting Or Performance Is Reliable
Nice "your pace" feature and is easy to use. I also like the feature that permits mower to continue running while the blade stops (cuts down on continual start-up when tending to bags or other frequent stops during mowing process).
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Features, High Quality

Great Mower At A Great Price
My old Toro just wore out after almost nine years of service - my yard is just over an acre and I enjoy the walk, so when I purchased my first Toro personal pace, it was perfect - I knew up front this mower wasn't designed for a yard this size, but I changed the oil and serviced it and it did a great job. The new Toro personal pace has several improvements and I would recommend this unit to anyone looking for a great lawn mower - a extra is the fast shipping provided by Mowers Direct - I... more

Only One Thing Missing.
This mower would be near perfect if it had a single lever to adjust cutting height of all four wheels .
Pros: Easy To Use, High Quality, Easy To Store, I'd Buy It Again
Cons: Should Have A Single Adjustment Lever To Set Cutting Height For A

I Needed A New Mower To Replace My Old One.
I did all my research on all mowers from various sites and found this mower had no negative comments, only positive experiences from other people who had used this mower.
Pros: Easy To Use, Price, Reliable, High Quality

Good Price & Fast Delivery!
I'm very pleased with the mower I received. No damage on delivery. Very easy to assemble. Only I needed to go buy a quart of oil to pour into the mower. Then it was ready to mow.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Features, Price, Quiet

My New Mower
My only complaint would be about grass bag, Toro had a much better bagging system easier to attach and detach to empty.
The new one runs a lot better when grass is longer, starts about same.

Alright Mower
Starts well about ten times, even if its well maintained. The spark plug is impossible to get out.

Both Rear Wheels Have Drive Power
I read reviews on everything I buy but seldom write one. I hate when people misrepresent a product out of ignorance or dishonesty. Ernest said this mower only has drive in one rear wheel and therefore does not do good on hills. Since I just bought it today I was concerned so I took it to a 45 degree embankment where my property borders the back alley. The bank is about 7 ft wide and 100 ft long and rough and irregular with some tree roots. The mower worked just like my last Super Recycler... more
