Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 2048 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Mower I just bought this mover to replace a 15+ year old Personal Pace Toro that was still operating. The original one served me well over the years, with little or no problems. The new one is an updated version of the older one and a little more refined and powerful. Easy to assemble and started first pull out of the box. I love the ability to switch from mulch to bag with a flip of a knob. Leaves a clean cut with no trailings. I had a Honda mower at my cottage and had lots of starting problems and it was in the shop frequently, I sold it. This Toro is a reliable and quality machine at a reasonable price. I would never buy anything other than Toro. May 12, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Complete Garbage The worst lawnmower ever. I had a Toro riding lawnmower for a few years and it was great, I am so disappointed in this one. I will start with the good, it does start with no more then two pulls, if not jammed with grass. Ok now the bad: Front is too light, bounces when going over a slight bump, ends up missing or not cutting grass right. The recycling part, I should say what recycling part, it leaves clumps everywhere, it jams up and misses so much grass. You can't walk backwards, it will leave clumps of grass. I have had mine for four and a half months and it makes the loudest (deafening) noise on recycle, I need to get it repaired or if I can take it back. The gas mileage is horrible, surprising cause I have the one with a Honda motor. The side discharge is aimed too high so if any wind when your cutting blows it in your face. I would give it a zero star if they let me. September 12, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 2 Years later: Does not start on warm engine. Basically that's it. Frustrating to say the least – every time I stop the mower to empty the bag or for any reason the mower is impossible to start again. Even on 10 pulls. I have to wait an hour at least for it to start again this takes me a long time to cut my yard. The 3 Year Warranty is still in effect for Rapid Start so I'm off to a dealer to see what happens. I guess I'll have to wait a while for them to look at it as they are very busy at this time. I might have to buy another mower to continue mowing. Personal Pace is not suitable for my sloping back yard as you have to push the mower to get it going several times to be effective on a sloping back yard. Personal Pace is OK for a flat lawn. Right now I'll never buy a Rapid Start mower as it turned out to be a gimmick 2 years down the road. Otherwise I would give it 3 stars instead of 1. July 23, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Personal Pace 22 Inch Self-Propelled Gas Mower This review is based on only using the lawn mower today for the first time, but I don't expect much to change going forward. Pro's: (1) Very easy to setup, only takes minutes with most of the unit already together for you. (2) Came with a bottle of oil. (3) Started on very first pull. (4) Personal pace option works very nicely and I found I was using it for most of the lawn including the flat parts. (5) Easy to brush off clippings from body and under bag door. (6) Checked under body, hardly any grass clippings clinging to underside. (7) Not any louder than a typical gas mower. Con's: (1) When ever you shut it off for what ever reason it will not start on the first pull. Took 2 or 3 pulls each time, not sure why with a new mower? Maybe the auto choke has something to do with it? (2) Wheels did spin a bit going up a slope in my backyard, but not every time. (3) The unit is much heavier than a typical gas non-self propelled mower so keep this in mind when buying. The personal pace lever really makes it feel easy to use so use this option most of the time and you'll be just fine. Overall thats about it, happy with purchase. Don't feel as tired after mowing as before with a non-self propelled mower. The hill in my backyard was tough with a normal mower. Paul Kingston, Ontario Note: Sales person in store was excellent, very knowledgeable about product and did a really good job with me prior to making final purchase. August 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Toro Self -Propelled 22 " Hi I am passing on my experience of how to avoid starting problems. I talked to several lawnmower repair depots before purchasing to find out why so many lawnmowers end up with starting problems. A. Starting problems are usually caused from using too low octane gasoline with ethanol. They recommend using supreme gas. B. Also add a gas stabilizer : 1 oz per 4 litres of gas. I give the Toro lawnmower 5 stars. No problems with starting. Starts first time every time. The self paced model makes it very easy to mow. April 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Better than the Honda it replaced - and $200 less! I’m REALLY pleased with this mower. I've been using it for 2 years, and it has started on the 1st or second pull every time I've used it. I replaced a very expensive Honda mower with this one, and it is lighter, easier to use, and has proven far more durable. The mower cuts well, and the "personal pace" self-propelled control works like a charm. It propels the mower as fast or slow as I care to walk, and the engine's strong enough to keep pulling the mower and cutting, no matter how thick and long the grass. It's easy to service; the engine has its own great service manual, and replacement plugs and air filters are easy to find, as well. My only complaint is that the plastic discharge chute gets caught on bushes, and pops off from time to time. Luckily, it's made of a durable low density plastic. It simply snaps back on. Long story short, I'd recommend it in a heartbeat. Thanks, Toro! April 6, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Wouldn't start and pull too many times Be careful of this guarantee start because I had my problem after 14 months. The spark plug has a defect but Toro would not admit to that and it turns out I have to pay for the labour even though its warranty for 2 years. If you guys ever run into this problem then the first thing you should do is check the spark plug to see if its defect or not. Of course it never start off right away and it always takes a few tries in order for it to start. Wouldn't recommend this model but if you can then opt out for the electric start because at least you worry free trying to get it started. July 6, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Recent upgrade from push mower and lovin' it Purchased this unit one month ago after some research and was a bit concerned with some of the negative reviews but have been extremely pleased every time I cut my grass which was a real pain due to the slope on our lawn with the push mower. This self propelled mower works well on the slope and our boys are able to control it easily also. Starts very quickly every time and whether mulching or bagging or side discharge which I tried today for the first time very impressed with the design and ease of use. Side discharge attachment is held in place with the spring of the shut off, great design. Only recommendation is if mulching and the grass is a bit high, keep the mower up with one pass and then lower it and do a second pass. Make sure to change the oil at 5 hrs or less. Oil was quite dirty at the recommended 5 hr oil change. June 16, 2013
