Answer: 
Everything needed to switch from bagger to mulching side discharge comes in the box.
Switching between both mowing modes is extremely simple.
I have yet to have a hiccup with this product & it starts on the 1st pull about 95% of the time.
Never had to pull more than twice. The Kohler engine is great.. Variable speed drive works great.
For the money it's going to be hard to beat the TORO.

Answer: 
Yes, there's a side discharge chute available for the mower. I have one and it works great when the grass is too tall/thick to mulch. It attaches very easily underneath the side discharge cover.

Answer: 
To start the mower, hold the blade control bar against the handle. Pull the recoil start handle lightly until you feel resistance, then pull it sharply. Allow the rope to return to the handle slowly. Please view the warranty information online at http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/pdfImages/ab/ab7baa4b-7887-4050-9106-690e41a55602.pdf.

Answer: 
The engine has an automatic choke, no primer. Simply pull on the starter rope and it will start. Can't say it will start on the first pull on every cold start, but ours typically starts in 1- 3 pulls. Warm starts require just 1 pull. It's important to keep fresh fuel in it for easy starting

Answer: 
Yes it will start on the first or second pull. I've had this mower for two years and it has started on the first or second pull every time. Also it doesn't have a primer bulb, because it isn't needed.

Rated 3.2 out of 5 by 1178 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by This mower works as advertised We've used it twice and it started up on the first pull both times, right after we put fuel in and after a week of sitting idle. No more priming the engine. The wheel lowering and raising levers are big and easy to use. The best feature is the wide mouth opening for the fuel tank, no more spilling fuel because you can't see the level. The only negative is that the grass catcher does not seal completely. A small amount of grass blows threw the gaps. Overall this is a great mower. Very sleek looking with a strong engine. July 30, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Very touchy fuel system/ carburetor. Constant starting and or surging issues. Fourth season with the mower. Started having problems the second year. Had it to the shop twice this year. They cleaned carb and said it may need replaced. Still hard to start. Today I tapped the carb with a hammer and tilted the mower on it's side(gas side) , and it finally started. It surged/dieseled the whole time I was mowing. I had very cheap mowers last me a very long time with very little maintenance on my part. I'm going to run this steaming hunk until the next time it won't start , then buy a cheapie mower again. July 1, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by I'm Done With Toro Mowers I have purchased 3 Toro mowers and they all have been garbage. The most recent and my final Toro had a "Guaranteed to Start" label proudly displayed. Then the sales person saw me looking at it and said "a solid 5 year investment". With "guaranteed to start" and "a solid 5 year investment", my decision was made! Took it home and it was very easy to assemble and I was very impressed and happy with it's performance and my purchase. Then 35 days after I purchased it and after using it only 4 times to cut my lawn, it would not start. I checked the mower for the most obvious reasons why it wouldn't start...gas, oil, and a spark plug (it had all 3). Any reason beyond that for a 30-day old mower failing to start is completely unacceptable for me. I took it back to Home Depot for a store credit and spent an extra $150 to buy a Honda mower. My experience with Toro is there is a 50% chance you will have performance problems. Keep that in mind if you decide to buy one. June 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent The mower was easy to assemble and easy to use. Everything that was printed about it was accurate. May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Toro mower This is my third Toro mower. I've tried other mowers but Toro seems to cut lawns better and has more power for weeds and lasts longer. I use the new mower on my lawns and when my weed mower dies I switch lawn mower to weeds and get new mower for lawn. May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good product need new lawn mower easy setup easy to ues good price April 27, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by not so easy start When a product is advertised as "guaranteed to start" then it really should start! I bought my first house and I wanted to buy a new, reliable mower that will last. THIS IS NOT IT.... it had trouble starting 6 months after I bought it and now it's been almost a year and it is in the shop. I'm really hoping it's covered under warranty but I'm willing to bet that it's somehow fuel related and won't be covered. I've only used regular gas, and that should be just fine in this mower. The shop guy didn't make it sound very promising. If regular gasoline isn't good enough for this mower then Toro needs to come up with a better engine or advertise an awesome gas additive to use. September 25, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Carburetor is junk!!!!!!!!! Had less then a year, will not start. Googled TORO Recycler and one of first things that came up on suggested searches was "TORO Recycler will not start". I'll cut to the chase and tell you carburetor is junk. Research for yourself (look for kohler XT6.5 engine problems). New carb only cost $25, but who wants to buy new carb every year. April 7, 2016
