Answer: 
If you look at the left side of the handle, you'll see a knob that holds the traction cable. Loosen the knob a little bit & push or pull the cable up or down to get the desired high speed - don't forget to re tighten the knob! if you adjust the cable too tight the wheels will spin fast & all the time. its on the sticker on the handle & in your Owners Manual.

I just used mine for the first time today. One thing I noticed is that the drive wheels never fully disengage, even when you let go of the control bar. Not sure if it's by design, or a design flaw. I'm going to contact Toro about it.

The 22 in. High Wheel Variable Speed Self-Propelled Walk-Behind Gas Lawn Mower with SmartStow includes a variable speed drive system that is controlled using a traction bail. Variable speed is achieved by feathering the bail closer or farther away from the handle.

Answer: 
The speed is controlled by the bar under the handle - the closer you hold it to the handle (the further you "depress it" upwards) the faster the wheels will spin. Thus, the fastest speed is holding it all the way against the handle, and the slowest would be just pushing it in a little.

Answer: 
Theoretically, you're supposed to vary the amount you squeeze the self propel bail (lever). I find it easier to hold the bail all the way down on the fastest speed. Since it's front wheel drive, the wheels slip a little on the ground when you want to go slower. In my opinion, it's the perfect balance between power and controllability.

Answer: 
On one occasion, I filled the gas tank after mowing and placed the mower in its upright folded position and had a slow leak of gas out of the top. I would recommend filling the tank before you mow and leave the small residual amount left in the tank when in storage. I have not had a problem with leaks so long as I don't fill the tank right before storing.

Under conditions where you plan to bag on a regular basis, rear wheel drive will provide the best traction. As the weight of the bag increases as it fills with grass the rear wheels are able to maintain traction.

I can't compare for you but I'm very satisfied w/frt wheel drive with variable speed. The latter is the key. BTW, if you're less than, say, 5' 10", front wheel could be more of a challenge. Your forearms should be about parallel with the cutting cage to apply a slight upward pressure to the front wheels.

Answer: 
I found the front drive to work pretty well. I think the rear drive works better in taller grass, however, it's always best to cut your grass before it get's too long because you can shock the plant and it can cause it to go dormant unexpectedly. With that in mind, I think the front drive works well enough for the purposes I use my mower.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 748 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mower control cables rub against rear wheel. I just purchased this self propelled front wheel drive Toro mower and pulled it out of the box and installed the engine oil and gas. The mower immediately started with one pull of the starter cord. I'm overall pleased with my purchase except for one issue that needs to be corrected. The factory in Mexico that made this, must have poor quality control. Both control cables that go up the left side of the handle from the mower deck, rub against the top of the left rear wheel. It appears that the cables are too long and need shortened. I contacted Toro and they state that I should take it to my local Toro service center for repair. That's a 45 minute drive for me. A brand new mower costing $329 shouldn't need to be repaired right out of the box. May 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent all-around product This mower was out of the box, ready to go. Ease of set-up, start and storage are all terrific pros. The ease of cleaning also diminishes my need to clean the storage space along with prolonging the life of my mower. April 26, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product and price Used this mower about 4 times now. Started on first pull every time. I have used the mulcher and bagging feature. The catch bag is very easy to install and remove, takes just seconds. Love the smart stow feature, saves a lot of space and looks way more organized in my garage. The handle is a touch low, but not an issue for me. Definitely not a deal breaker. I tend to pull up slightly on the handle to create more traction and better engage the front wheels into the grass. This brings the handle up to a great height for me and I am 6'-5". My yard a very flat and the self propelled feature works great. The clean out port on the top of the deck is also a nice feature. So far, its been a great mower. June 7, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Front Wheel Drive is Poor design for seniors I appreciate the storage feature, but the front wheel drive design for a senior citizen is poor. The front wheels will hit the low spots first, and when they do, the mower's wheels will not be able to grab and pull the machine forward unless you PULL UP ON THE HEAVY MOWER to allow the front wheels to grab the ground again. A rear wheel drive machine only requires a little weight PUSHING DOWN for the wheels to grab again. The bag on this is also very poorly designed. There is a quarter inch gap all the way around that causes dirt and debris to fly out the whole time you're mowing. This will have to go back, for sure! May 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by very good, so far Nice mower. Virtually no assembly other than remove and set aside the bag and side discharge chute and un fold the handle assembly. Added the oil, put in some gas, and pulled. Started right up. That's the best feature. No priming, just pull and it starts. Rolls easy, but the front wheel drive does take some getting used to. Our old John Deere was rear wheel drive. My only negatives - the height adjustment is not easy. My 15 yo son cannot do it. Also, mulching leaves something to be desired. I'm at the third or fourth highest height and still see a lot of clippings spew out from the underside. I will finish on a positive note, the smart stow is an awesome space saving feature!! May 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by New Lawnmower Well made, sturdy, easy to use, easy to store, easy to clean. Runs great!! June 16, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Toro smartstow 22 inch. Have had the Toro for about a month. So far it has started on one pull everytime and love the upright storage option. I was a little worried about leaks while stored upright. Nothing so far. It works as advertised. June 21, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Smartstow is a wonderful idea 2 months into using the mower, and the only complaint I can think of is the grass catcher. Seems to let a lot of grass collect on the topside of the deck. And the gate that opens to attach the grass catcher has some deep slots that collect a lot of grass. I think making that a solid piece would have been better, and can't see why the designers thought having those slots would be better than having a cover over them. But the mower does a great job. Starts on first pull every time so far, and the cut is beautiful. Most of my yard is fairly level, and the front wheel drive is excellent. Have already recommended it to a buddy of mine, and he's liking it as well. And honestly, why haven't all mowers been able to store in a vertical position like this? Storing vertical is a fantastic feature, you'll be impressed! May 31, 2016
