Customer Questions & Answers

Why are is it rated so low by customers?

Some customers complained about tihis mower, saying that presents damages very soon?
Asked by: Anonymous
I do not understand the low ratings by some people on here. I bought this mower 9 years ago to use for my lawn mowing business. This mower has been cutting 10-15 large yards per week for the last 9 years and it still runs great. The only things I have done to it is periodically change the oil and sharpen the blade. If you take the time to read the manual and treat it properly, it will never fail you. I love the personal pace system, it allows great versatility on any surface and can get up to a quick speed.

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

Does it take a key to start

Asked by: JackRabbitt
No key is required. This mower is very simple to operate. There is no choke to set to start and no throttle to control during operation.

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.

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.

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!

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.

The repair shop owner told me "In the past I8 years, I have only received a Toro company authorization to replace one Toro engine". I have used mowers with Briggs and Stratton engines since the mid 1960's. In fact, in 2013 my father passed away and his Briggs and Stratton mower purchased in 1965, started up and I mowed his lawn for the last time before the house was sold. This Toro Briggs and Stratton engine smoked more than I preferred, I took it to the Toro franchise repair shop nearby and after a few hours, the repair shop called and said, the mower just needed to be run until the smoke stopped, now everything was fine they said. I was surprised all they had to do was run it until is stopped smoking, and they said, oil probably got into the system, and it was a common thing. I asked if they were sure, and they said, they could take it apart and check. 2 hours later they called and said the motor had been overheated and they blamed it on me, saying I did not check the oil level. I answered them, telling them that I check oil level regularly and I have changed it as dictated in the owners manual. They were running a snow blower in their parking lot unattended for an hour on my first visit, while I looked at their mower inventory on their sales floor. I asked if they did that with the mower I dropped off? They said, they were not going to honor the warranty and when I picked up the mower, it was in pieces, maybe 20 bolts and engine parts, just laying near the mower wheels, in their parking lot. I complained to Toro, they said take it to another Toro repair for analysis and now it has been 3 months, since the mower was dropped off, with no word yet on when it will be repaired, if it will be repaired, only that at this time, no word on what they are doing with it. Again, 3 months ago, I dropped it off. I hope Home Depot publishes this final comment, since I have never ever complained about any product I have purchased at Home Deport since the 1980's. The current repair shop owner told me 3 months ago "In the past I8 years, I have only received authorization to replace one Toro engine". I guess the warranties now days, are not the same as when this company first started out. I will update this review, if and when I receive more information on when and if they will repair the Toro mower.

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.

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.
