Ethanol Gas
Has ruined these mowers. I had a Toro for 25 years and bought a new one. First year it started then sputtered out. The short story is I have replaced the carburetor 3 times in two years. Am using stabilizer but the carburetor is defective. Selling it and not looking back.
Pros: Easy To Store, Fast, Toros Name Is Great But For The Past Few Years Declining Qual
Cons: Unreliable, Durability

Debby,
Debby,

We completely feel your pain as I am sure every end user and manufacturer as well. While Sta-Bil is a great product, when it comes to ethanol in gas, you really need to use an ethanol treatment in order to neutralize this issue. Briggs has actually come out with a product which does just this. Please see link below...

Briggs & Stratton Advanced Fuel Treatment

While this issue is a constant nag, we don't see it going away anytime soon as now the government is looking to allow 15% percent ethanol in fuel, which will just make things worse. So while this headache persists, we would suggest possibly using the Briggs treatment in the mean time to lessen the issues.

If you have any questions on this, please feel free to give us a call.

Cannot Recommend The Personal Pace
This mower would be perfect if it wasn't for two issues. I received the mower and unpacked it only to realize that the left side of the mower had a paint bald spot. Apparently the paint was not dry when it was placed in the box. The oil for the mower was also missing from the box. The personal pace feature stinks. It locks up most of the time and does not allow you to pull the mower back. Very bad if you are using this as a trim mower. The rest of the mower is perfect and it mulches... more

Great Mower. Quiet And Really Mulches Up The Leaves
My old push mower was wearing me out so I was looking for a new mower. My friend had this model and I went over to his house and took a couple of turns with his.

Came home and ordered this mower from MD. Good price and quick ship. Mower runs great...doesn't like 32 degree start ups though...took a couple of pulls.
Pros: Easy To Use, Features, Quiet, Price
Cons: Mulcher Blocker Plug Doesn't Close Correctlybent Tab Too Co

Great Mower
Recently purchased this mower to replace a 1999 Toro Super Recycler with Personal Pace. The mower arrived quickly. It was easy to assemble. As promised the engine starts in one pull. The Honda engine is high quality.

The Personal Pace is responsive and not jerky at all. I have not had an issue with not being able to easily pull the mower backwards. The cut is great, but I expected no less. It bags well and picks up virtually everything in it's path. I use the bagging feature almost... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Durable, I'd Buy It Again, Quality Of Cut

Ok, But!
Received mower promptly. It came without oil and the Personal Pace self propelled feature did not work.

Having used a 22" Toro Recycler mower for 13 years (Tecumseh motor wore out on my half acre lot), I suspected improper adjustment of the cable for the Personal Pace self propelled drive unit.

However, prior to adjusting the cable, I checked the transmission to see if the cable attachment bracket was mounted securely to the transmission. This was based on experience with a Toro... more

So Far So Good ...
I've used it twice and I'm satisfied with the power and the personal pace feature. I think the personal pace feature seems well designed but since I've never owned a self propelled mower it will probably take a few more uses to get fully comfortable with it.

P.S. The Honda motor starts on the first pull and the Toro deck and general build of all the other parts seem sturdy and of higher quality. I gave a 4 star rating across the board since I've only used it twice.

Good luck.
Pros: Easy To Use, Features, Quiet, Easy To Store

Our last Toro lasted 12 years. I'll let you know in 12 more years how this one does. So far the only thing missing is air conditioning and someone else to use it. Great product from a top notch dealer.

Toro Super Recycler Is The Way To Go.
I purchased the toro recycler mid summer and it did not mulch well. I originally bought the recycler because it was cheaper and had great consumer reviews. If you have a thin to moderately thick lawn it will probably work just fine. Anyways, I sold it on craigs list and immediately bought the super recycler with the honda engine.

Was a little worried about the power of the 160 cc engine since the recycler had a 190 cc briggs. After the first use I could tell immediately power was not going... more

A Serious Mowing Experience
Researched the various models of 21" Self Propelled, interviewed the local geek mechanics at various power equipment shops, and found out about this particular mower.

Ordered it, shipped in one day, received it, put in two snap set bolts, attached bag, filled with oil and gas, one pull and I was mowing.

What a beautiful unit this is, with Honda power and Toro quality cut. Our yard has never looked this great. THANKS to Mowers Direct for a great deal, great shipping, and... more
