  4 Questions
Q: Can the Toro 20384 be stored in an upright position?
by Dave Yaeger from New York on April 02, 2016

A: Dave - no, the Toro model 20384 mower cannot be stored in an upright position.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: 1. About how many starts per charge from the battery. I am guessing I would empty bag about 6-8 times in my yard.
2. Life expectancy of battery?
Thx much!

by Duane Dale from Idaho on March 18, 2016

A: Duane - a fully charged battery on the Toro model 20384 should provide 25 to 30 starts before re-charging is required. A properly cared-for battery should last a minimum of three mowing seasons.
by Jose, Product Expert
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.
by Jose, Product Expert
Q: Does it self recharge the battery?
by Charles Walsh from California on May 17, 2014

A: Charles - the Toro 20384 comes with a charger that is used to charge the battery for the electric start.

Lovin' It!
Injured my rt shoulder last fall, making starting my old mower difficult. Decided to try electric start. Checked out several & decided on the toro 20834 and am very pleased. Have used as mulcher & bagger. Zero trace of clippings when mulching.

When trees started dropping spring time messes, used bag very very nice pickup and no trail of clippings all clippings made it in the bag. The bag is easy to get off & back on, and has a nice frame that makes dumping efficient.

Toro Really Sucks
I received my Toro electric start mower and the mower did not go into self-propel at all. The next mower now is a problem in starting.
I am disappointed at Toro a lot. Mowers Direct helped a little in replacing the 1st mower, but it looks like I have to do all the leg work to make this $600 mower work.

Wish It Would Run Right
I have this mower and am having engine issues, it surges and drags on the idle like it needs turned up. I have had it at the shop 3 times and they keep playing games with me (woman), they told me it was fixed I took it home and after cutting my back yard it pooped out and choked itself out and would not run for me to cut the front, It is in the shop as I speak, IF it is not fixed I am ditching it and getting a new mower and not a toro...

Solid Mower But Not Perfect
Have used Super Recycler mowers for many years. This new model was purchased because of the electric start. Overall experience has been very good.

Two issues:

1. Front wheels were not tightened appropriate by Toro. They were almost fall off after 2 uses. (Not too hard to tighten once I turned it over)

2. Having difficulty getting the personal pace cable tight enough to keep mower at a fast pace. Also because of this and extra weight of electric start mower is a little hard to... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Features, Price

Pull Start Works Fine
Wouldn't start, took to authorized repair- spark plug wire not connected. After initial runs, battery could not be recharged. Am in need of replacement battery. Rather than wait for the 2 1/2 weeks for dealer repair service, I need a battery now.

Model 20384 In For Warranty Repair After Mowing A Small Lawn Onc
Opened the box and noted the cable controlling the rear wheel drive was badly kinked. 10W30 oil, new 87 octane fuel, greased the rear drive, and charged the battery for 24 hours. Tried the electric start as well as starting with the pull rope, mower started right up with no problems. Mowed a while, mower worked good, and then I picked up a small branch, which meant the mower had to be restarted. The starter engaged, but did not have enough guts to turn over the engine.

Using the pull... more

Wheel Won't Stay On
The left front wheel fell off once and I tightened the nut and it stayed on for almost one full mowing of my small yard (4,000 sq feet). I guess I will have to go to the hardware store and try to match the bolt to get one which will allow the nut to be tightened enough to keep the wheel on. This mower has only been used 5 times.

Great Mower
This is my second one. The first I used for 12 years before giving it to my neighbor in still good running order (still being used). The new one is lighter yet the mulching performance, personal pace, electric start, and starting reliability are still the features to have.

Best To Buy From Dealer
Upon inspection the discharge guard was heavily scratched. The box it was shipped in had no visible damage and thus, the discharge guard was obviously damaged before it was shipped. Immediately after starting the mower the self propel did not work. I took the mower to Empire Seed in Temple, Texas for warranty work and was told something (they believe maybe a stick?) was lodged in the self propelled drive belt and the repairs would not be covered under warranty. Empire Seed initially would not... more

Vernon,
Sorry you had issues with the service center it does sound that they did not want to work on it, if you call Toro and send them the receipt they can reimburse you under warranty make sure you have the dealers information that did not want to work on it so they can contact the dealer to find out why. You should not pay for something that is covered under warranty, if you get nowhere please let us know and we can contact our rep.

Electric Start Mower Is Great.
I am a woman and was able to assemble mower myself. Electric start is great and so is mower. So far so good.

Good Mower - No Oil Included.
Mower arrived quickly and works as advertised. I was surprised that the box didn't include the necessary oil, but maybe I just missed that piece of information.
