Customer Questions & Answers

New Toro self pasted lawnmower that does not start within one or two pulls. It takes 5 to 8

I just bought a toro lawnmower model 20332 sn 314072763 that is supposed to start within one or two pulls. This one will start after 5 to 8 pulls. Its a new purchase from Home Depot. Am l doing something wrong or should I take it back to Home Depot. On the lawn mower it states it will start in one or two pulls.
Asked by: Paris
Take it back ASAP, before the warranty expires. I wish I had. Mine is 4 years old, meticulously maintained, always fresh premium fuel and it no longer starts. Just a $150 repair bill to get it started. Get your money back while you still can.

Turning with rear wheel drive

We once had a rear wheel drive mower and it was difficult to turn at the end of a mowed row. Will those rear wheels on this new Toro keep driving when I wish to stop and turn around?
Asked by: Jim
The Personal Pace rear wheel drive system for Toro makes it very easy to turn the mower around at the end of a mowed row. If the Personal Pace handle is engaged, the mower will only move at your walking speed. If the Personal Pace handle is not engaged, the rear wheels do not drive at all.

Changing belts and wheels

Sometimes the belt wears or the teeth in the wheels wear down. Is this an easy fix with this mower? Are the teeth plastic?
Asked by: flrdust
We occasionally see the teeth on the wheel gears wear down. The two most common reasons are many hours of use or misalignment. If the issue is caused by high hours such as commercial use, then replacing the wheels is a good fix. If the machine is being used in a residential setting, misalignment is most likely the cause for wear. A service dealer can correct any misalignment, and replace the necessary parts to get the mower operating correctly. Worn wheel gear teeth will place a greater load on the drive belt resulting in additional wear. Once the wheel gear issue is dealt with, and the belt replaced, the belt should last a very long time. Occasionally adjusting the self-propel cable (see the Operator’s Manual) will help extend the belt life.

Is 18oz usually the ideal amount to fill this mower if it was completely empty?

Asked by: Bob
The mower requires 20 oz of oil. Put in 18 and check with the dipstick. Usually some oil remains after emptying it.

Is this mower easy to start?

Just wanted to know if a person that isn't terribly strong can start this mower. Thanks.
Asked by: NewGardener
Yes, Mine starts first or second pull even after months of storage over the winter. Fresh fuel with a stabilizer is recommended.

Is this mower Made In USA?

Many walk power mower components are from the USA. All of our walk power mowers are assembled at sites within North America.

What is the mulching ability of the "atomic" blade? Is it a double blade as is Honda's or a single?

Asked by: whiskrun7
The Atomic blade is a single blade that has a unique blade sail and notched blade tips that provide an optimal quality of cut to provide both excellent mulching and bagging performance.

Customer Reviews

22 in. Personal Pace Recycler Variable Speed Gas Self Propelled Mower with Briggs & Stratton Engine is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 2673.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from My second Toro mower. Maybe my last? I work in the small engine field and I trust the Toro name. I like the "old style" Briggs side valve motor. It is very long lived and I like the personal pace drive system. My issue is with the frame/chassis. It rusts quickly. I clean my machines and have them in a shed. My last Toro rusted through on top of the deck and started to spray me with grass clippings. The bail handle area was also bubbly with rust. I bought another. So far, so good. This one I painted the undercarriage with undercoating. I've never encountered another mower that rusted at all, much less one that rusts all the way through the frame! This may be my last Toro. Time will tell.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Extremely poor mulching in slightly damp grass Bought this to replace and older identical model. Was very pleased with the previous mower. Only replaced it because of much wear and tear after 8+ years of reliable service. This new moert however only works well on relatively short / dry grass. When attempting to cut somewhat longer, somewhat damp grass it fails to mulch to the point the entire mower gets clogged with clippings. After 15 minutes of running I have to turn it on its side and remove the clippings by hand and with a garden hose. This is a problem I never encountered with the older model. If all you ever need to cut is short and dry grass then this will probably work suitably for you. Good luck trying to cut higher / damp grass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice I originally was going to buy a Honda but saw a in a review and then I double-checked in the owner's manual about how they are not supposed to be used on hills greater than 20 degrees. I needed a lawn mower to use on a steep hill in my backyard that you can see in the picture. So that ruled out buying a Honda. My previous Craftsman mower had front-wheel drive. This rear-wheel drive Toro does much better on my hill. It has no problems getting up the hill with little effort. The personal pace system took some getting used to but I don't have any problems with it. I have used it for three mowings so far and it has started on the first or second pull each time. This model does not have a folding handle or upright storage feature that some of the other models have but if you don't need that this lawn mower works great. I tried hooking on the garden hose to clean under the mower. It doesn't seem to be worth the hassle. It doesn't remove anything that is stuck on real good. It seems easier to tip the mower a bit and use a screwdriver to loosen any stuck-on grass. It was the same with my Craftsman.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy. My Toro PP with electric start and B&S engine has been terrible. I purchased it in 2011. The engine is hard to start. I've rebuilt the carb had a $100.00 tune up and still I need to use engine start spray to get it going. The transmission failed after 3 years. Costs $50.00 to buy a replacement if I install it myself. It's $150.00 to have a shop do it. Why would the transmission fail on a five year old $400.00 lawn mower? I had a Sears mower prior to this one and it lasted 15 years with no issues. My suggestion, buy a mower with a Honda engine. They just work and work.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Purchased a new Personal Pace 22 inch mower in June, 2016 after owning the same model for the las... Purchased a new Personal Pace 22 inch mower in June, 2016 after owning the same model for the last several years and very pleased with it. Boy has the quality of the design gone down in my opinion. Both the oil and fuel caps have come loose when mowing the yard. First the oil cap came loose and I had oil all over the mower, what a mess to clean up. Then shortly afterward, the fuel cap came off even with the attaching strap and fell off. I ran over it and had to purchase a new one. The fuel cap is not even furnished as a part you can buy from Toro, it is supplied by Briggs and Stratton. The old style fuel cap screwed on and never had a problem with it. This new style twists on with 2 tabs and is not very secure, especially when the mower is running and the motor vibration causes it to loosen. These newer design just seem so much cheaper built than the older same model mower.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average unit The unit is good but the design is geared not as a Mulcher/Recycler but as a regular mower with bagger or side discharger. Bigger engine does not equate to mulching as mine will shut off because of the amount of grass buildup. I had a snapper 6hp for years and did not have this much trouble mulching.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Mower ever and Customer Service just as bad Bought from Home Depot in May 2013. After a few months, mower would quit in the middle of mowing my 1/2 Acre lot. Took to authorized dealer several times. They would repair it but after a few times running, it would die on me again. I have used new gas with fuel stabilizer so its not a fuel issue, This has been happening for almost 3 years and Toro does not want to own up to fact that this mower is bad. This mower is a lemon and Toro will not replace or refund. Customer service is not very friendly or understanding. They made it sound like I was the one causing the problem. I have it back in the shop one more time. If they don't replace the engine it will be in the trash. Not worth the aggravation. Never will I buy another Toro product. I will go with Honda.
