Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Ross Toro Not What it use to be Stay away
Ok where do start Toro was a great product up till about 3-5 years ago. I guess in an effort to save money they removed there drain plug at the bottom. That’s was a terrible mistake. Or was it when they decided to remove the bottom shield that protected the front drive belt. Now when I cut grass myself propel stops working and I have to flip the lawn mower completely over and pull grass and debris from inside the belt housing. Another thing it could be is it that why after a few uses the carburetors keep having issues like idling real high. Or sometime not starting. Today I have to say I am going to another brand sorry Toro I’m done .

I have had this mower for 2 years now and I absolutely love this mower. I used it a lot last season and before winter, I ran all of the gas out and put it away in the shed. This year I pulled it out poured some gas in and it started right up. The sum of my front and back yard is around 3500 sqft and this mower is perfect for that. I love the bagger, although, I would change the flap in the back to not allow so much grass to get caught in there but it's not that big of a deal. I have never used the side discharge, but the bagging and mulching works great. The front drive allows for me to mow my steep front yard easily and I can lift the front end and make a turn without having to disengage the drive. It goes around my fire pit with ease as well, however, I still have to use my string trimmer to cut it down. I would highly recommend this to anyone with a similar sized yard.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Phil Toro needs to make this right
I am updating a prior review of this lawnmower. It appears that someone at the corporate level at Toro thought they could save a few pennies per unit by removing the oil fill tube. The engine (Kohler XT675) is fabricated to have one. I have the engine manual, parts diagram and pictures to prove it. As a consequence, changing the oil on this mower results in a mess. The geometry is such, that unless you completely turn the mower upside down, and keep it level, the oil will spill onto the mower deck, and the ground below.
Something to keep in mind.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Junior DO NOT BUY THIS MOWER
I purchased this mower on 4/11/2015, i returned this mower on 4/18/2015. Lets start or lets say it wouldnt start on the first pull like the guarantee says. I have mowed our lawn 3 times already this season and one of those mowings was this past time with the new mower. The mower deck itself is great, its light weight and it seems real solid. The problem the mower faces is with the Kohler engine its equiped with. Primerless carb and the mower cannot handle any kind of hill due to it wanting to die while on hill. Small bumps in the yard also caused the mower to want to die. IF YOU WANT A MOWER TO LAST AND NOT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT ENGINE PROBLEMS THIS ISNT THE MOWER FOR YOU. HOME DEPOT did allow me to return this product and i dont fault HOME DEPOT by any means, but i think they do need to do product testing before placing items on their shelf for sale.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mike Toro with Kohler "easy" start motor
The mower started just fine for a couple of months and then started getting "cranky" (pun intended) as it would not start. I was told by a repair dealer that there was water in the gas (ethanol attracts water and no place to buy unethanol gas). One thing noticeable was the fuel cap was getting harder to put on..........the hole was no longer "round". The service dealer said "freezing" must have warped the mower.............it had not froze outside yet. Is it the Kohler motor??
I replaced the fuel tank and now it has a round fuel hole................how long? No word from Toro on comping me for the fuel tank on a two year warranty with only 9 months into warranty. Home Depot was no help either................they just want to sell.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jasper Finally took a sledge-hammer to it
This was worst mower I ever owned. It cut great when it worked, but I had to take it apart and clean the carburetor every time I wanted to use it. If I ever cut it off it would not restart. Warranty did not cover anything. Took it back only to find I was stuck with it. No adjustments of any kind. Will never buy another toro.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Pizazzz Not the worst mower, but definitely not the best.
I have had this mower for 3 years now. First let me say what i believe is the biggest downfall of this mower. If you are taller than 5'6 than this will break your back. The handle on the mower is about 3-4 inches to low, and I'd rather use one of those old fashioned rotary mowers than this if it had a taller handle.
The self-propelled feature is very good, as it needs to be. And when you aren't mulching the grass, it cuts very well. If you ARE mulching however, the grass can't be higher than 3 inches otherwise it will (stall?) the mower.
