Pretty straight forward, easy assembly. It comes with the oil included. The option of side discard is great! It started on the first try. Our yard had gotten quite long when the old mower crapped out. We live in Florida, so the grass grows very quick, as well as retains the moisture from everyday rain. We set it up at the medium blade height. We were quite impressed at how easily it got through the weeds and grass, even in the areas that were still damp. We have a good size back yard and it took less that 20 minutes to mow it. We were very impressed at the speed and ease of this mower. Highly recommend.

This is the easiest starting mower you could ask for, but it tends to loose power under load when mowing. Grass height of 6-7 inches is a struggle when using as a mulching mower and it leaves a mounded trail of grass in the yard that you'll have to rake up . Also, the grass catcher bag is small, which makes for more frequent stops to empty bag. If you have a small yard and mow often, this is a great mower (my yard is approx. 50' x 75'). But if you let the grass get a little high, better plan on taking some extra time to cut your lawn and rake up the clippings. If I had it to do over again, I'd probably buy a different mower with more power.

I have had this lawn mower for less then a year, last season it ran great. Now it bogs down when cutting, clogs up through the side or rear exit, and stalls out on thick grass. I do the neccessary maintainance but it still can make it through a small lawn before dying. Again im going for a new blade and belt to see if it fixes the problem. Its very disappointing to spend over 300 dollars for a one year lawn mower.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by blm547 I love this mower.
This is the second Toro Recycler with a Kohler engine that I have purchased. I liked the first one so much, that when the mower at our second home died, I purchased anotherToro Recycler. It does a great job of mulching the grass. Also, the oil fill port was redesigned from the first one I purchased, and is much easier to use. The clippings bag is also very easy to use, and I use it in the winter to pick up the mulched leaves while I mow. Great product!

I would never purchase this one ever again. It's a piece of junk. First off, if you get something stuck on the blades or you have to turn the mower on the side forget mowing anymore that day. It won't start.
Next problem, I've had this mower a year and the wheels don't always turn right. They sometimes just stop while you are walking along and next thing you know you've got the handle in your gut. It doesn't mulch well at all and it is just over all a worthless hunk of metal. I would rather go to Walmart and buy a cheap Murray lawn mower, saved a bunch of money and not had near the problems. I will say that it starts every time on the first pull. Other than that I hate this mower.

If I could give this 0 stars I would have. This mower is an absolute piece of garbage. It runs great until it quits and then no matter how many times you pull the cord it will not start. Culprit is the carburetor, which means you will keep paying to have it repair and it will keep failing. I drove my back to Home Depot after a year and told the manager what a lemon this mower was and got a full refund

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nickname5150 Kohler Engine Is Weak Link
I've used this mower for two years. It starts fine and features work as they should. The issue is the fuel tank on this Kohler 149cc engine. After a few months the fuel cap became very hard to put on the tank and fuel began to leak out of the top. I placed an order for a replacement fuel tank and after a backorder issue, installed it. After limited hours this replacement Kohler fuel tank is having the same issues. When measuring two different diameters of the opening, one diameter is 3/16 of inch smaller. I've had no luck contacting Toro customer service or multiple local Toro dealers, but there isn't a recall and they have no additional advice. I've recently e-mailed Kohler, but this is frustrating with fuel leaking all over the mower each time it's in use. When chatting with the home depot employee last year, he said he had the same mower, but with the Briggs & Stratton mower. I wish I had purchased that model.
