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.

Q: Hi...does the Toro Super REcycler 21" w/ blade stop priced at $609.99, have an engine throttle to control engine RPM when idleing? Thank you.
by Dave Ramsay from Washington on April 25, 2013

A: Dave - the Toro 20383 Super Recycler does not have a throttle control feature. The engine will run at a constant RPM rate when it's running, whether the blade is engaged or not.

Missing Parts, Mower Unusable
I received the mower with no manual or hardware to attach the handle. The mower is unusable.

Mowers Direct is blaming Toro, but I find that hard to believe. I might get the parts to attach the handle later next week. I think they should overnight it, but they would not.

Gregg,
We are sorry to hear the manual and hardware were not included with your mower. The quality control takes place at the Toro factory, so we are not wrong in saying Toro is at fault for not including those items.

We are unable to process parts orders on weekends, but we will make sure your missing parts ship in Monday 3/2. Again we apologize for the inconvenience.

Great Mower
After using a push mower, this is a huge step up for me. As advertised, it started on the first pull.

I have a hilly yard, and this Toro makes a big difference going up hill. Costs a whole lotta money, but worth it.

Perfect Mower - Except For Grass Catcher.
Had my Lawnboy 20 years. Was disappointed when I found out I couldn't purchase a Lawnboy with an aluminum deck. Then was told Toro acquired Lawnboy. They make a Toro with the deck and features I wanted. Was a little pricey but I bought it. The mower is everything I expected. The improvements over the past 20 years are amazing. You will love this mower. The only thing I have an issue with - The cut grass does not empty out of the bag as easy as it did from the Lawnboy. Obviously the grass... more

Exactly What I Wanted
It came undamaged and beautiful. Followed directions to the letter. Started immediately after connecting spark plug. Mowed approx two feet and didn't cut anymore. Found blade stop cable outer spiral wrap slips at adjustment clamp. Wound several times with electrical tape and re-clamped securely, It works but is not a permanent quality fix for this machine.

Needs a permanent solution from an engineer. Otherwise it's the perfect mower for my needs.It bags wet grass with out clogging! I realize... more

Great Product And Service!
I received the mower in 2 1/2 days,in good condition even though the box had a hole in it and the bottom was in danger of falling out (held by one strip of clear tape). As far as the purchase experience, absolutely excellent service. The mower took about 30 minutes to assemble. I've used it 3 times and it's started on the first pull each time. I love the blade stop feature. No real complaints here...good price, good buying experience, and good performance from the mower. I would buy from... more

1st true mulching mower I EVER owned! I adjusted the walk-behind speed and mowed a lawn that was overdue. No clumps and rows of grass clippings to be raked or blown.

Toro Super Recycler
I looked at all kinds of mowers. I live in a suburb so my lawn is not huge. I thought about the new Toro 30", but bought this one instead.

I love that it starts on first pull & has more height settings than most. The cut of the blade is 5 star. I use to empty the bag 4-5 times on a good mow. Now I can do it from start to finish on one.

The clippings are so fine- I've never seen a mower produce this fine of a cut. I've owned a Honda Harmony, Neuton electric, and a Craftsman.... more

New Toro 20383
My Toro 20383 arrived in great condition. I thought the instructions for assembly were somewhat hard to understand and too brief. I think more detail with better pictures are needed, particularly of where the primer bulb is located. Once I figured out what to do the mower started on the second pull.

I find the highly advertised "personal pace" works well when mowing in a long straight line but it is very unhandy when making turns. I think my 12 year old Toro that I replaced... more

Received mower in very short order, but it was damaged. Fortunately, I listened to the delivery guy and checked it. Replacement mower was back within just a couple of days. So, overall, I'd say my experience was very good.
