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.

Could not find this model in town - so ordered this at this web- mower was virtually set up and ready to go out of the box.

Shipping was fast.

Love My New Toro
I have had my new Toro for a month now. It always starts on the first or second pull regardless of whether the engine is hot or cold. I like the grass catcher which is easy to empty into yard waste bags. It is lighter and easier to use than the catcher on my old Toro.

Was a bit disappointed in the instruction manual, however. It appears that the manual may have been written to cover several other models, in addition to the actual one I purchased. As a consequence, some diagrams did not... more

Great Mower
My first two Toro Mowers have lasted 27 years. I just purchased my third and it is the best by far. I have the Toro 20383 with blade stop. Mower is easy to start, maneuver, grass bags easily, and the mulching feature works very well. The mower arrived sooner than quoted arrival date.

When the mower arrived, the handle adjustment bracket was bent. I phoned Mowers Direct, sent them the photos they requested to identify the part, and they quickly shipped me a new part at no charge.

"Mowers Direct was helpful, answered my questions thoroughly, and the mower arrived two days sooner than the quoted arrival date. My only shipping complaint is the mower arrived with a bent handle adjustment bracket--damaged during shipping. However, Mowers Direct quickly shipped me a new part when notified of the damage."

I have not used the mower so I can't tell how good it is. I did put oil in it and start it and it works and sounds great.

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

Great Mower
Been using this mower for a couple of months & it is a very easy mower to operate, rather quiet & does a great job mulching or bagging. Takes a little getting use to the delay when you pull it back towards you but I've already gotten used to that. Starts on 1st or 2nd pull when cold & so far has always started on 1st pull when it is warm. I do use 100% gas with no ethanol.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Quiet, Exceeded Expectations

Positive Experience
My mower arrived in a very short time and at the closely-approximate delivery time. Upon inspection, found it was damaged, returned it and without hassle, a replacement was delivered within a few days. So my experience with the retailer was very positive. It is a good mower and, so far, does just what I expected and wanted.

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.
