Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FiveStitch Second Times a Charm
Read every review of this product available and visited the store 3 times before buying.
Out of the box it is extremely simple to put together. The plastic tab (or key) that some people say is hard to install was a piece of cake. Anyone who had trouble with that I would assume would have trouble removing and installing the gas cap as well. The handle installed very easily.
The oil container provided is the exact amount needed for the engine.
Started the machine up and after 3 seconds it died. I tried removing the fuel cap to help with possible vapor lock, checked the fuse, checked the linkages for the cables, and the safety stop switch, tried manually moving the linkages on the carb and no luck. I couldn't get it to fire up again.
Went back to the store and was given a replacement in minutes. Brought it back and in a few minutes I had it fired up and took for a test drive. It works great! The personal pace works great. Can't wait to cut the lawn.
Great customer service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cdnuser Perfect all round mower
I am really impressed with this mower. The rear drive wheels and personal pace works perfect. Your not fighting with the mower as found using others that dog in and don't stop. The mulcher works really good and leaves very little clumps only when stopping and changing direction. Sometimes when i am doing short runs back and forth i switch it to bag just those areas. I got it on a great Fathers day sale. I can mow the lawn in half the time and i'm not overheated from pushing like i was with the old push job. I used to have to overlap my cuts a lot more The electric start works good and i tried pull starting with no issues at all.
My only concern is that mower deck seems to be a little flimsy. If it were aluminum deck it would be perfect. (but probably more money)
Overall very happy after a full summer of use.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by KrisLin Useless for mulching
Bought this to replace my Lawnboy mulching mower and have been using it for a year now. I have to say that the Lawnboy could run circles around this Toro. While it has some nice features, they don't make up for the shortcomings. Will be taking a hit and trading this in for a another Lawnboy shortly.
Electric start is nice.
Construction is fairly sturdy.
Personal Pace feature works well.
Way under powered for a mulching mower. Unless you're cutting every 3-4 days and the grass is bone dry this thing will just bog down in mulching mode. Even in side discharge mode, it creates clumps and doesn't distribute the clippings evenly.
Gas tank is too small. I have to fill this almost twice as often as I did with the Lawnboy.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by unhappy600dollarToroowner Do not buy this mower if you mulch
I have been mowing grass for 30 years and have always used mulch mode. Recently decided it was time to retire my 4 year old $200 mower and upgrade to a Toro. I was quite shocked with my first use of this Toro, while it foes a great job of cutting grass...it leaves a steady line of "clumps of grass clippings" to the right centre of the cut. It's almost as if I need to mow a second time with the bag attached to clean it up. I then started up my Wally mower and cut an adjacent strip of grass...the outcome was perfect! I returned that mower and ordered a same model replacement, same issue! I have been working with Toro for this past month and tried everything they have asked. The outcome from them is nothing but excuses...the grass was wet (NOT)...it was too long (NOT) etc etc. Toro CS has been totally useless. I should post my underdog vs Toro challenge video to youtube! I'm not happy at all with this Toro and I do cut my grass twice weekly. Stop the excuses Toro!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Karlidra Self Pace Feature problem on hills
This mower mows very well but the self pace feature just didn't work for me due my backyard having a hill in it as well as various ground obstacles such as roots, etc. Even though it is self-propelled you still have to apply pressure against the handle for it to work. This constant pressure against the handle gets tiresome when mowing up a hill when you expect the mower to just pull itself with no effort on your part. I also had problems with the front end bouncing up when mowing which is due to both the self pace feature and the rear bag holding so much. It does cut the grass well and probably puts twice as much grass into the bagger but this makes the front end light and rear up.
