Q: Does Toro make this model with an electric start?
Why does Toro make a 190cc engine and a smaller 159?

by Rob from Illinois on April 06, 2016

A: Rob - There are NO Toro mower models that have both an electric start and a blade brake clutch. If the mower has an electric start, it would not have blade brake clutch. And if the mower has blade brake clutch, it would be recoil start only (no electric start). As for the engines, the 190cc version is equipped with a Briggs and Stratton engine. The 159cc version is equipped with a Toro brand engine. Two different brand engines are offered on the same mower.

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.

Excellent Mower
I'm a first time home owner and bought a cheaper Craftsman mower in 2013. That mower was good but looking for an upgrade, especially with mulching. My Craftsman would leave clumps if cutting tall grass. This Toro does an excellent job as I work full time and can't always cut when my KY Bluegrass needs it.

The personal pace is awesome and blade stop in genius. Blade stop comes in handy when my kid leaves toys in yard, when picking up sticks in front of mower, when I stop to pick weeks in... more

Blew Up After A Few Uses
I bought this back in November to replace a still running craftsman that I gave away. I used it a couple times in fall and a couple times in the spring before it blew up. It took them 3 months to tell me they would not cover it. Terrible product and company!

Not Like My Old Super Recyler
Personal pace is hard to use around a lot of small bushes. It is difficult to engage the drive when the handle is not directly in front of you. There was not a manual or parts list included. The shipping carton had damage and the mower had a bent right front wheel mounting which I fixed myself by adding a washer to realign the wheel. It starts real well and handles high grass. But I wish the grass catcher would hold more. The bag clogs quickly when mowing dry leaves. The side grass chute will... more

Worth Every Penny!
Once I got serious about "Dominating my neighbors" I began looking for an upgrade on my old Craftsman push lawnmower...I came across a YouTube channel, Lawn Care Nut, where he provides all types of yard-care tips. He was using this type of mower and that is where the investigation began!

I decided to purchase this unit on a Saturday and when it arrived on Wednesday I had to wait... I was in New Orleans on business :-( till Friday. Friday night I inserted two bolts for the handle,... more

Best Purchase Decision
I have been mowing grass for years and this is the best mower I have ever had. The cleanliness of the cut even in taller, wet grass is something I have never seen.

I was concerned with only a 21" deck but it actually has substantially cut my mowing time as compared to my previous 22" Toro due to the speed I can mow at.

Just an excellent machine.

Good Mower But
Note you cannot control the rpm of the motor. Why? Because it makes it cheaper to manufacture. Seems to me the rpm set at the factory are too low. What happens? The mower bogs down easier. I still like this mower, but come on talk to people who cut their lawns not engineers.

I Like This Mower, But...
The mower was delivered on time and worked well for the first two times that I used it. But the third time the front right wheel lost a nut and wobbled off. I tried to fix it but the nut was lost in the grass and I could not locate it. I will have to get another nut to replace that one.

I do not think that this should have happened on a brand new mower. I am afraid now of the same thing happening to the other wheels. Any recommendations?

Also, the oil dipstick is so difficult to... more

Cautiously Optimistic
Ordered it April 9th, it came just a few days later in perfect condition, started up on the first pull, and has started on the first pull every time. I love the deck wash-out port, and the cut is great.

It seems to be a good quality mower. That's the good, and now for the not so good. Just 3 short weeks later, the self-propel went out so now it's in the shop 4 to 6 weeks. Hopefully, whatever is wrong, the warranty will cover.

Toro is normally very good with their warranty work. So now... more

Excellent Mower
I've mowed my yard for 30 years and had a variety of mowers. I like to get a new one every 2 or 3 years. This is my 2nd Toro Super Recycler. The last I bought 2007. I thought the last one was great, and this one has a few more features that improve on it: stow-away handle, blade clutch, and doesn't blow grass at me when I'm using the bag.

It needed some adjusting before it worked right. I had to bend the bracket holding the throttle spring to get decent engine speed. I had to pull the... more

Could Be Happier
This is our 2nd Toro personal pace. Our first lasted 14 years mowing and catching 1/2 acre 4 times a month from April until November. Easy set up from the box, simple instructions , start on the first pull out of the box. The personal pace works better than are first Toro and we really like the option of having the blade stop when emptying the bag.

The opening on the bag is wide and let's the bag empty quickly and easily. The height setting are easy to read and adjust with little effort.... more

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
