It Does The Work And I Get The Exercise.
Never in 60 years have I had a mower like this. Starts first pull every time and before I know It I'm through. Wouldn't take for it. My first Toro and I'm hooked. By the way the "right out of the box" thing is not to worry. In five minutes you're mowing.

Bad Experience
Mower was a house warming gift for my daughter and her husband that just closed on a new home in late August. My son-in-law and I took the mower out of the box, added the oil and gas as outlined in the directions. One pull and it started as promised by Toro, had some light blue smoke, started cutting the grass and got about 10 feet and one of the rear wheels fell off.

Really poor workmanship in my opinion if you cannot go more then 10' and the wheels fall off. Reinstalled the wheel and... more

Nice Mower, A Couple Quirks
Thus far easy start, fired up right out of the carton. Like the stand up storage feature which shrinks the garage foot print the more occupies.

Quirks thus far: When mowing over some rough patches in my lawn the mower sputters, like it gets gas starved. The first time I though it was running out of gas.

Second item is inconsistent cut. I cut fairly high, and when I look at the grass from the previous cuts there are area with random higher grass strands, it's looks like they escaped the... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Features, Price
Cons: Cut quality, Design of fuel system

Rear Left Wheel *did* Fall Off For Me...
I seen the reviews stating issues with the left rear wheel falling OFF but that didn't stop me from buying this mower since it had all the features I was looking for.

Yep after just a few minutes cutting the grass my LEFT REAR wheel fell OFF just as the others have stated. Had to go get the ratchet & socket and put it back on which was at first a little intimidating with the rear wheel drive assembly but I just did it and then checked the other wheels. None of the wheels have fallen... more
Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Store, Features, Price

Bagging Grass Is A Thing Of The Past!
I have reached the age where mowing can be a struggle. I've never had a self-propelled mower, but knew that I needed the extra feature. This mower has surpassed my expectations with its ease in turns and the great job it does with "recycling" the grass. I thought that it was going to do a good job on mulching, but I found that. unlike mulching mowers, there was absolutely no trace of grass clippings!

The "on end" storage feature makes it easy to keep the mower out of... more

Ok But Not As Good As My Previous One
Well, I might as well add my comments to the others. I laughed when so many reported that a wheel fell off shortly after they began mowing. However, the unit I got "looked" OK so I added the oil and fresh gas. True to their word it started on the first pull. No cloud of smoke that others reported. So I began mowing. The grass was long because of all the rain we have had. I set it as high as it would go and eased into it. I had it in mulching mode, but that was bad news. The wet grass... more
Pros: It cuts grass., Pretty red color.
Cons: Low Quality, Bad Instructions, Expensive, Wheels fall off.

Review Of Mowers Direct & Toro
Mowers Direct was very good to work with ordering, shipping and receiving the mower. I got exactly what I asked for in a timely fashion.

Toro needs to work on their quality control. Within the first 10 minutes of mowing with the mower the left rear wheel fell off. Fortunately all of the pieces were easy to find. I reattached the wheel and checked the other three which were all loose. While looking closer at the right rear wheel I notices that the bracket it is attached to has a slight... more

The Wheel *did Not* Fall Off For Me...
There were a ton of reviews stating issues with the wheels. I got my mower, inspected it before taking it out and had no issues with the wheels. The mower itself is perfect for me considering I have very little space in my garage so the stow and go feature is great.
Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Store

Bad First Impression But No Problem Now
The mower was delivered quickly. Unfortunately the left rear drive wheel fell off twice in a short period of time. I tightened it down and the next day I used blue loctite. I haven't had a problem with it since. It consistently starts on the first or second pull, and always on the first pull once warm. All in all I'm happy with the purchase. I just need to keep a check on the rear wheel. Love the smart stow feature!
Pros: Easy To Use, Easy To Store, Features, Reliable
Cons: Durability

Dead Mower
I followed the directions for adding oil and gas to the mower. It started nicely and then began billowing blue clouds of smoke and dripping small amounts of black oil from underneath the left side of the engine onto the surface of the mower. I called mowers direct and they said "not my problem". I am now dealing with the Toro/Briggs and Stratton engine dealer in my town who will also address the two rear rear wheels that were loose and ready to fall off. I am not a very happy camper... more

Kathryn,
We apologize for the issues with the mower. Once the mower is gassed and oiled the manufacturers warranty takes effect and it has to be handled by a local service center. We also state this information under our return policy. Once again we apologize for the inconvenience. If you need anything further, please do not hesitate to ask.

Thank you

Manufacturer Response
Brand Rep
Kathryn,
We are sorry to hear you are having problems with your Toro mower. Some blue smoke is normal upon the first start. Sometimes during shipping the engine gets shifted around moving oil around. However, and oil drip needs to be addressed by a local service dealer. This mower has a two year full warranty and your local service dealer can help you fix your issue at no charge. Please call our customer service number if you have any other questions (888) 384-9939 (toll free).
