I went through not one, but TWO of these mowers just to make sure the first one wasn't a fluke. They both had the exact same problem in which we realized what it was today. It is self propelled RWD, and the bolt that holds the Wheel to the bracket and through the gear does not have a retaining/locking nut on the backside to keep it from self loosening itself as you do its one and only job, Mow the grass. Since TORO engineering aren't the sharpest tacks in the box, When this occurs and the wheel comes off it also strips the gear for the drive causing even more damage. My lawn takes about 20minutes to complete with a push mower so It's fairly small, and this unit was 6 weeks old and only used about 4 times. Safe to say at $350 it's not very cost effective to mow the lawn 4 times and it reaches the end of its service life.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ronr It was difficult to start first time!
It was somewhat diffcult to start first time, and after it take 2 pulls to start. This may sounf OK but down the road what to expect?
I still have 3 weeks, I may return and look at the Honda Mowers...
Folding feature is outstanding...

I bought this product for 2 reasons:
1. It's a Toro. The brand is highly rated and came recommended to me by multiple sources.
2. I can safely store it in a very small space (see picture). I can stick it on the side of my garage and still have room to get out of the passenger side door.
Other than that it does it's job. It starts up, it cuts grass.
Can't rate it higher than 4 stars because I've only owned it for a couple of weeks.

I have two of these mowers and the only issue I have is that throttle cable snapped out of the thing a ma-gig on one of them. Other than that they are holding up fine. The front wheels seem to wear out but, I think it's a very good mower. By the way I use them in my landscaping business and to tell you the truth it's the next best thing i have found to a small commercial mower. The deck is all one piece (metal) not plastic connected to metal. Trust me I have gone through many a mower. Honda would be the next best thing but, I don't like them they bounce around a lot, this more is more steady. Hope this helps you. I would have rather had a RWD unit.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by gonzoron This mower leaves 2" of grass uncut on each side of the mower where the wheels roll over the grass. If you overlap 3-4" on the next pass, this 'ridge' of grass remains uncut. It also leaves a trail of unmulched grass in the wheel tracks. I only used it once, and my lawn had uncut ridges all over it. I'm returning it to the store. I did not try the rear bagger or side discharge since I bought it to use for mulching. It does have sufficient power and starts easily, about the only good things I can say about it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by p5150 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.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by PattiS Although I was able to fold it rather easily, it is very hard to push and I am having a very hard time adjusting the self propel component. It is also hard to adjust the height of the wheels unless you left the mower up.

The only thing I dislike about this mower is that the handle adjustment only has two places and the lowest one is too low and the highest one is too high otherwise this is a great machine. Are utilized the online purchase and pick up and it took all of five minutes to go in receive the product and leave
