I bought the extended warranty and have to pay when i go in. I will never buy warranty from HD again. Make sure you have your copy, if you dont you dont have a warranty

WHAT IS THE GENERAL LIFE OF THIS PARTICULAR MOWER, I HAVE ONE.

I HAVE NEVER HAD A PROBLEM, BUT TODAY IT IS HAVING TROUBLE RUNNING. IT KEEPS CHOKING OUT. I LOVE THIS MOWER, BUT AM THINKING THAT I NEED A NEW ONE. THIS ONE WAS PURCHSED IN 2005. IT WAS A WONDERFUL MOWER!
Asked by: Anonymous
Mine is starting its sixth season, but it is on its last legs. The self-propel feature is not working very well- it's almost a push mower now. When I first got it, I felt like I would have to run behind it. It doesn't cut in a straight line- kind of wobbles to one side. The engine starts and is running fine.

can you use the mower without the bag on it and when is the best time of the year to buy a Toro.

Asked by: WmD8
Yes, you can use the mower without the bag attached. The bag-on-demand feature allows you to either collect or recycle grass and leaf clippings while the grass bag is attached to the mower. Please view the Operator's Manual for additional information. You can view it online at http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/pdfImages/70/70d3d418-9894-41b2-9bd5-964ce2131170.pdf

is this the same high quality mower I can buy at a local toro dealer or is this a cheap big box knock off mower?

Asked by: sirmowsalot
For the following reasons, I do not believe Toro does that. In April, 2002, I bought an earlier version of essentially the same mower, a 22" Personal Pace Recycler, which at that time was Model # 20018. Since then, using various parts providers such as Sear's Parts, Amazon and Jack's Small Engines, I bought a head gasket (de-carbonized the head), several carb bowel gaskets (repeated seasonal layup) and other typical consumables and never found any part number specifications that were based upon the initial purchase source. Also, this unit ran without major issues until, after about fifteen seasons of what I would call, normal wear-and-tear, the aggregate cost of a ring-and-gasket set (cylinder blow-by), upper and lower crankshaft seals, a new bag, a new blade, a belt and wheel hubs (cracked) suggested that it was economically time to consider a replacement. This 2017 model (20332), from observation and use from April to August of this year, seems to be at least as well-made as the 2002 and frankly, I prefer this new B&S engines over my old Tecumseh although, that 2002 engine certainly earned its keep.. FYI, that 2002 Tecumseh was the first air-cooled small-engine in which I used synthetic oil (I prefer Mobil 1 but I doubt that there is a meaningful difference among all the first-line brands) exclusively for its fifteen years and coincidentally, it was my first lawn mower that ran for more than ten years without needing to refresh the rings. Back then, Toro did not spec synthetic oil however, I noted that the B&S engine owner's manual (download one off the web, if you wish) now endorses synthetic 5W-30 for the full range of operating temperatures. If you keep your mowers for as long as practical, give synthetic a try. In summary, if, this is a 'big-box knock off', then it is likely a pretty good one.

22 in. Personal Pace Recycler Variable Speed Gas Self Propelled Mower with Briggs & Stratton Engine is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 3085.

That's pushing it with any self propelled mower. I was torn between the Honda HRR216VKA or The Toro personal pace 20332. Both were rated Best Buys by Consumer Reports. I ended up buying today the Toro model. It was roughly $60 cheaper and provided an extra inch of cutting on every pass. After some light assembly, filling it with gas and oil I broke it out for a test run. Couldn't have been more pleased. The mower with the self pace feature plus being rather light compared to my old John Deere JS63 previous mower made me a happy buyer here tonight.

Bought a new one this year. Love it as I did the old one. Only concern is their "check and start" thing. So, there's no primer. You're supposed to just pull the cord and it will start. I think that's a little optomistic. Lawn mower companies have advertised "easy starts" and "guarenteed to start on the first pull" claims for decades only to let us doen a few years or even months later. So, we'll see what it's like in a few years, but for now it's awesome and yes it starts on the first pull with no prime... so far.

The self propelling feature is not that great. I have have tried every adjustment according to the owners manual but it still does not have much "pulling " ability. I didn't realize how weak the self propel was until I bought my daughter the Honda mower similar to this one.....the Honda mower is light years better than the Toro at self propelling. Do not waste your money on this Toro if you need a good self propel mower. My next mower will be a Honda not a Toro.

I just bought this Toro product on 4/23/2017 to replace my 22 inch 190CC Toro I bought in 2009 to upgrade to some of the new features. I did wish they had a bigger engine for a better price but was not going to spend $700 on a lawn mower. The lawn mower was very easy to set up, took less than 10 minutes. Added the oil, the gas and started up. I did notice a spray paint kind of smell once I started using it but I am sure that was part of the break in of the motor. I am sure it will take some time to break in the motor. One thing I learned about my last mower as I am sure that will be with this one is Toro lawn mowers do very well when you cut your grass weekly. I live in the Midwest so if you don't cut it weekly it will be too hard on the mower and engine. I see more positive than negative on the reviews. The Personal pace is very nice and makes it a lot easier up slopes. The rear wheel drive is fine but beware if you used to a front wheel drive mower you will find it different. The drive is rear wheel so I would suggest not pulling too much going backwards because it will have affect on the drive system over time, this makes perfect sense from a drive perspective and if you in a situation where you have to pull a lot backwards in your yard then find a front wheel drive product. Finally, it's a lawn mower, if you get 10 years great, Toro makes a good product with a good Brigg's and Stratton engine and that's the key.

I bought this machine brand new in summer of 2015, used it for one season and it was great. The following season brought nothing but problems. It failed to start and when it did it would not stay running. This season, the same thing. I've never in my life had a mower that needed so much "routine maintenance" and babying. This thing is a piece of junk and as soon as I find a replacement I'm throwing it in the trash. Not even two years old. My last mower (not a Toro) went 10 years and was absolutely abused, and never required an ounce of maintenance. This thing is a little cry baby. I will NOT buy a Toro again, ever.

It worked fine until early 2015 when the drive belt came off. I took it to a local Toro dealer who fixed it under warranty - taking about 3 weeks to do it. It worked ok until late 2016 when the belt came off again. I tired following a couple You tube videos to fix it myself, but unfortunately that didn't work out either. Now I'm looking for another product, but it won't be a Toro. Too bad, I have no complaints about the rest of the machine, but this is flaw in the design is unacceptable.

After having trouble starting the mower after less than one season, researched reviews to find a common problem; fuel system issues. Even with fuel stabilizer, drained, etc... the mower will not start this Spring. The "guaranteed to start" label is false. A competitor's brand, left outside with old fuel started on the second pull. I will not buy another Toro product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Decent mower hampered by a motor unworthy of the Briggs and Stratton name. "Guaranteed to start"... Decent mower hampered by a motor unworthy of the Briggs and Stratton name. "Guaranteed to start", "Never prime", "Never choke". The words of a marketing guy, not an engineer. It is one thing to try to design a motor that doesn't REQUIRE priming or choke. It is quite another to build one that doesn't include that option! There will ALWAYS be times and conditions where priming or choking will be required and this motor will not be able to handle those times. Often, I have to pull and pull to get this started and then let it idle for 3-5 minutes before the motor smooths out and I'm actually able to engage the blade and drive without stalling the motor... which then takes 5 - 10 pulls to fire again. I've only had this more for 2-3 seasons and it started acting this way the first season. Today, it was so bad that I hurt my back from the 40 or more pulls that it took to fire it up for the 3rd or 4th time before I could get it actually ready to cut. The motor is simply poorly designed and unreliable. Also, for the mower design itself, how long will it take manufacturers to understand, that NOTHING should protrude from the side of a mower that extends beyond the edge of the cutting deck? The on/off switch on this mower is mounted to the outside of the handle, which means that trying to cut along a fence drags both the handle, and the switch against the fence! This is a no-brainer folks, the handle and all wheels should be INSIDE the radius of the blade and mower deck! Time to lose the pull cord starters... my first riding mower more than forty years ago, had a crank to wind it up and then hit a switch to release it... far easier than any of these stupid pull cords!
