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!
I have had this mower for about 2 months and love it. It cuts great and is easy to walk behind, very light!

I would recommend to anyone. I read a few reports from other people that it is hard to pull it back manually but I have no issues with that.

It could be that the have the self propel cable adjusted to tight or the flap at the bottom of the mower flipped backwards to cause resistance. I give it 5 stars!!

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

Stay Away From This Mower, Do Not Buy This One
The 'Auto Choke' doesn't work and since there is no primer bulb you have to pull it two or three times every time to get the thing started. Then the 'Personal Pace' doesn't disengage so it is hard to pull backwards as when you mow under shrubs and so on. Then when you change the oil, the stuff runs all over the concrete and grass. VERY POORLY designed. Stay away from this mower
Manufacturer Response
Brand Rep
Gordon,
First be sure to have your mower is filled up with fresh gasoline. Old gas can also lead to problems starting. If you have last season's gas in your mower, drain your fuel tank and fill with fresh gas. Other possible 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 within five years of the purchase date and Toro will fix your unit for free per our warranty statement. Please call our customer service number if you have any other questions (888) 384-9939 (toll free).

The Best Toro Super Recycler Yet !
I purchased my 3rd Toro Recycler/Super Recycler this summer. I traded my second unit in for this one, just as with the first unit ($80.00) after 16 years of use. The old unit was a super recycler with the personal pace system. I haven't used a rake in my yard to clean up tree leaves since using the recyclers.

I like this one the best because it actually picks up grass and leaves better than the previous models and it has a very quiet and smooth Honda engine. It has a great deck and blade... more

Wow, Better Than A John Deer
My John Deer aluminum frame power drive push mower to start is to prime the carburetor and pull the cord twice to start the engine. After six years of using this mower just to trim around my property before edging and cutting with a riding mower the transmission has broken with minimal usage. Replacement cost is approx. $200.00 without installation cost.

My new Toro model 30382 with a honda engine out of the box to start just pull the pull cord one time and the engine starts every time. The... more

Decent Mower
Quality control issues: the metal bracket that the handle locks into was bent on one side so it would not lock into place, had to use a mallet to bend it out.

I haven't used the bag, but it was off of its metal frame, no big deal it just clips back in, but a few days after unpacking, I found that the metal frame had poked a hole in the bag due to the way it was packed. The bag is quite thin compared to my 2015 Recycler.

Mulches pretty well. In fact, the more I use it, the better it seems... more
