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.

Excellent Mower
Mower is simply outstanding. Could not be happier with both the mower & the ease of purchase.

Mower arrived within a few days after ordering, setup was simple & without complications. Mower starts easily & does a beautiful job. All I have to do is simply steer it, push effort is minimal. Personal Pace drive system is amazing. If I had to pick one thing that I'm truly impressed with, it would be the uniformity of cut. After mowing the grass & looking across the yard,... more

Cannot Recommend This Mower
3 years after purchasing this mower the problems began. As I've noticed in other reviews of the Toro Personal Pace system, it locks up when trying to pull the mower backwards, and it began grinding the left wheel gear. When I removed the wheel to replace it, I noticed that the washer that seats into the backing plate was not seated into it's seat properly. This caused the shoulder of the washer to press into the plastic at an angle, making the wheel sit at a slight angle.

Not sure if this... more

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

Very Pleased.
Delivery was on time and setting up took about 15 minutes. First pull and the engine fired up. I am very happy about the weight and pulling capacity.

Could not be more pleased.

Bad Clutch
The mower I bought would not self propel. I brought it to an authorized service center. They found that the gasket where the clutch is housed was installed improperly. They replaced it and now it works. It was a hassle.

Local Warranty Support
I was disappointed when the self-propelled mechanism failed in the first half hour. Fortunately a local Toro dealer fixed the problem the same day under warranty. The problem was a defect from the factory and the mower works exactly as it should.

Best Mower I Ever Had
I recently purchased one for myself after my 15 YO Lawnboy went bad, I have been looking for several years for a replacement and have read all the reviews from Consumer Reports and this mower is always highly rated, so I purchased one and cannot be more happy, the self pace is outstanding, very easy to maneuver, the cut is the best I've seen my yard look, very even, you cant beat the 5 year warranty compared with others that may have 2 years. The Honda motor is very quiet compared to other... more

Super Recycler Is Still The King
Well this is my 3rd Toro super recycler. My last one was sold after 15 years of great service for $150. Decided to upgrade to the newer rear bagging system, deck and the Honda engine. Glad I did it. The newer deck design seems to mulch just a little bit better than my old model and leaves fewer clippings behind.

The deck has a few more wheel settings to get your lawn that just right height. Also so nice to not have to prime the engine with the auto choke. The Honda engine is suppose... more

Good Mower, But
So I did my research. I went and looked at mowers at all available places. I decided on the Toro. I have never had a Toro only a Honda and a Snapper. I never really liked the way the former cut my lawn. The Toro was a good deal at MowersDirect plus I got $50 off this month. It arrived quickly. Upon opening the box, there was oil all over the machine. Funny since there was no oil in the motor which I had to supply. No problem I thought. I just cleaned it up (messy).

I went to put... more

Worth It
After using the mower for 1 month, here are my lows and highs about this mower...

Lows: The parts of the mower (not the engine) seem light weight and cheap compared to my 2007 Toro mower. The elevating / lowering wheel levers remain difficult to operate. The clippings get caught when emptying them from the small opening of the bag.

Highs: Being light weight, it is easier to push. The Honda engine is wonderful and very easy to start. And most importantly, it mows evenly and mulches... more

Great Mower
Mower arrived earlier than originally estimated at time of order, great... Just unfolded the handle added oil and gas and it was off to cut grass. I got the Honda engine, quiet and started first pull. Mower cuts great...
