The blade stops when you release the little pull bar on the handle, but the engine continues to run. You do not have to restart the engine, which is a really nice feature. In fact, you have to push a button on the mower to turn off the engine when you are done mowing. You can release the pull bar handle as often as necessary to pick up yard debris that's in the way or toys if you have children. This is nice because you don't have to worry about being hit by debris while picking things up because the blade is not spinning. Then, when you are ready to mow again, just pull the little pull bar on the handle and the blade starts spinning again. You continue on your way without any need to restart the mower. It's a great system! Read Less

I pull the mower backwards every time I mow, and yes, it continues to cut the grass even while walking and pulling it backwards. The personal pace system is nice in that the mower is not heavy to push. It moves at your pace. And it works just as nicely when you pull it backwards as when it is moving forward. The mower does not turn off just because you pull it backwards.

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 2489 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Hoped for More 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. June 24, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Toro personal pace machine The mower worked great had good power and 3 months later the self pace stopped and it was tough to push the machine. This is my second toro and the drive was stronger on the new one until today. When the machine was left on in the middle of my driveway by ups the plastic piece above the air filter was broken and 2 of the plastic pieces were broken and the blue shied on the blade stop was loose and later fell off. I would still recommend the machine. August 24, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Biggest Piece of Junk Save your money and buy a better product. Or even better, if you're feeling charitable, just write a check for $400 to a local food bank. It would be less frustrating and more satisfying than purchasing this piece of junk. I bought this in the spring of 2015 and the first thing I noticed was it took 3-4 pulls to start. My old craftsman of 10 years, started on the first pull every time and only cost $159. Only reason I got rid of it was a leak in the gas tank. Today my drive system decided to stop working. Can't believe after 1-1/2 summers of use I now have to go lay out another $400 on a lawn mower. Should have listened to buddy who bought the same mower and returned it after on use for a Honda. He said he could tell in mowing the Toro was a low quality product that wouldn't last. September 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The BEST lawn mower purchase ever The mower was easy to assemble with the step by step directions. From box to starting it was 20 min.. mulching and blade stop option features work wonderful, the personal pace walking feature can move you along from 1 to 5 miles hr. It's a time saver too. September 6, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rethink the drive system While most of the features on this mower were average, one thing makes it a poor choice: The Drive System! The rear drive shaft isn't covered, so longer grass and weeds tend to wrap around the shaft and bind up, causing the mower to slow, increased fuel consumption and general awkwardness of use. Mowing a half acre yard, we had to stop and clear the shaft every 4-5 passes. If not, the mower would slow to a self propelled crawl or have to be pushed altogether, and when bound up, is much harder to push than a non self propelled model. the chute for the bagger attachment has very tight clearance to the shaft, making clearing this bind ups problematic also. Other wise, it seems to be a decent mower, though a bit pricey considering similar mowers that don't have this issue. August 15, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Waste of money! The Belt and propeller broke in 2 months and the engine gave out in 5 months. Poor product for the amount it is being sold for. Had to take it to their maintenance repair shop 3 times have been charged every time. I feel like I paid double for it. Now it wont start and Toro says they dont cover the engine even though it even says on the lawn mower - Guaranteed to start engine warranty!!!!!!! It is ridiculous how little it lasted for the price being charged. August 14, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Fo0r years and gone Not the best at mulching but gave decent results until the thing stopped running apparently due to an electrical problem. After only four years! August 22, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Toro 190 power Well, l had it in box for about 2 weeks, until l decided to tackle it. I haven't tired it but my husband have twice. He seems to like it OK, He said he have to get use to how it operates and handles. He has to empty the bag more often. August 18, 2016
