I was really excited to get this mover as I have used similar ones in the past. When I opened it up and started assembling it, the handle and levers felt as if they had been cost reduced over previous models and now they feel a lot more fragile. Additionally the left rear drive wheel fell off the first time I used the mower. I used a 1/2" wrench to put everything back together and have mowed 3 times since without issues but I am always thinking about it now every time I take it out. Briggs engine is OK. I am used to Honda and feel that they restart better if for some reason you need to shut the engine down in the middle of your mow. In my case I needed to because I ran out of gas in the middle of my yard. The engine does not have a very big fuel tank in my opinion.
I do enjoy the blade stop as that was the feature I was looking for. The mower works fine but I am not sure I would be willing to buy again. I am sad about this as all my friends have Toro Mowers and I was looking forward to my own.

I'm ALREADY disappointed in the lawn mower! It guarantee's to start every pull. I've used it twice and on Sunday, my third time It started right up. I realized I needed to adjust the blade, so I shut the mower off adjusted the blade and it wouldn't start!!! I waited roughly 15--20 minutes tried again No Start! Waited another hour, Still No Start. I put the mower away and tried again 6 hours later, NO START!!! What the heck??? I tried again yesterday before going to work, and it did start however, I didn't have time to mow before work!!! And. When I came home last night it was raining! So you can see where my frustration is. Any suggestions???

This is a good mower. I have bought a couple of these so far and they work great. The blade clutch is perfect for using the bagger and not having to restart the mower every time you empty the bag. The quality is not quite as good on this last mower in my opinion. Some of the quality items like the where the bag sets into the mower is not a sturdy as the older model.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DRC509 Damaged upon receipt
The right front wheel was completely bent upon receipt. The box was damaged in several places and may explain the wheel issue. The entire mower was coated in oil. It was in such bad condition upon receipt, that we wondered whether it was a reconditioned product being sold as new

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by LeatherchapCowgirl3 PERSONAL PACE RECYCLER 22 IN. Not So Fresh Out of the Box
When I opened the box, the product looked new, but as I unpacked it I could see problems already. One of the wheels looked like it was on wrong. One of the levers to adjust wheels in the back was broken. Ties were attached that the purchaser was suppose to attach. One of the wheels in the back would not hold any adjustment for height. I didn't get as far as adding gas or oil, but packed this cheaply made and poor quality controled product back up and returned it to Home Depot for a friendly refund. I went back to using my sturdy older John Deer quality mower. I really couldn't believe the poor quality of this Toro.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JimSilver Started once and that is it.
Started it up when I got it and it worked fine. Did what it was supposed to do. Cleaned it up and put it away. Next week, got it out to mow some small areas. Would not start! Checked gas and it was fine. That is, had plenty of gas. Pulled and pulled and pulled.... nothing! Dumped gas and put fresh gas in it. Pulled and pulled and pulled....nothing. Would not start. All that money for a brand new mower and it only works once??!!! Junk!!

I received my mower damaged. Big mistake having it shipped to home. Back wheel adjuster totally bent. Blade spin stop cable broken where it attaches to handle bar. Mower was unusable never even got to start it. Quality seems poor lots of cheap plastic. I am going to buy a Honda instead. I would stay clear of a new Toro. Customer service from the Home Depot was great though.

My mower was recommended by a store associate and was available only online. I chose to have it delivered to my home which was great as the case is very heavy.
My neighbor helped me get it set up and noticed that the height adjuster levers for the front two wheels were bent sideways, probably during shipping, and he got a tool to bend them mostly straight.
The mower works quite well though if it runs out of gas during operations, it takes about half an hour for the motor to start back up again. I don't know if this is due to the engine overheating for some reason, or the fuel line shutting down, but I've experienced this several times so I always make sure to use it on a full tank.
At one point I decided that I shouldn't have had to deal with a unit with levers that were stressed from bending and I ordered a new unit. That one came with one lever that was assembled improperly and wouldn't fit into position. I brought that mower back to a store for a refund and decided to keep my original mower. Home Depot did give me a modest credit for my trouble.
The mower does a fine job, and didn't cost too much so I'm overall satisfied. The blade stop function is nice as it keeps the engine running in case you need to stop to move a branch aside, and you don't need to restart the unit.
