Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jo Warning!
I mowed my lawn about ten times with it but most of the time it wont start. I run non ethenol as well. I googled reviews on it and there seems to be a problem with this mower. It only starts when it wants to. The front wheel drive is a joke. The wheels don't have any traction to make a difference. I would recommend any other brand.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Wargoober Toro with Kohler engine
My oldest son has a one year old Toro recycler 22 with a Kohler engine.
It will not start and it's less than a year old. The ignition system is not putting out any voltage to the spark plug. Do not buy anything with a Kohler engine.
BUY A HONDA LAWN MOWER.
HONDA makes the best lawn mower I have ever used.
Forget Toro. Just go buy a HONDA.
HONDA HONDA HONDA HONDA HONDA HONDA HONDA HONDA
ONE MORE TIME, HONDA.
Don't waste any money on a Toro and watch out for Kohler engines on other equipment.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JoeM I want the Engineers to put the Fuel Cap on Right
With a 2-yr old mower, not sure anyone else is experiencing the same issues. It takes me about 10+ minutes to align the fuel cap just right to accept the tightening thread. Its is plastic and wont set correctly. If after a proper setting, the gas leaks from the cap... and no, I am not overfilling the tank with fuel. Not certain of the science of fuel flow that it but some freak of gravity flows up, through a beaded seal and out. Its not the line and its not continuous for the entire mow. But every mow this leaks. The oil cap... same plastic thread that once slightly crossed, you will never get it properly sealed again. The spark plug, so far set into the motor that my spark plug ratchet/socket barely connects.
Pros: it still starts the first time. I have had very little difficulty in maintenance or maintenance issues.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by StephenB The worst
This lawn mower was of extremely poor quality. The smallest twigs would get caught between the belt and pulley requiring removal of a metal guide at least once each time I mowed. The spring loaded side flap would fall off frequently requiring a time consuming repair. After just a few years of light use the engine was blown. The mower did not start easily as promised.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rc2523 Toro Mower
Was replacing a similar model that I had for over 10 years. A little more plastic parts but still a great buy, easy to operate and a dependable starter.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by iceberg Not impressed
I purchased this mower 3 years ago. I change oil and air filter every year. One good thing is that It has always been easy to start. Usually starts on the 2nd or 3rd pull even after sitting in the garage whole winter. The drive system works well too. I've never had any issue with the self-propel function.
Now let's talk about the bad things. It is pretty easily bogged down by thick grass. It is worse than my previous mower which is smaller in size and not self-propelled. For some reason, it kicks up more dust than any other mower i used, maybe due to the blade design. If I mow over a bare spot, I would be engulfed in dust.
The design of the gas cap is very poor. It was always hard to close since new. This year it developed a gas leak. Every time I am mowing, gas would be dripping down the rim of the fuel cap. I removed the fuel cap and realized the opening of the fuel tank is no longer round. It is oval. I assume that is the reason for the fuel leak. I contacted Toro. Even though it is clearly an issue with manufacturer material and it is clearly a safety issue, since the product is out of warranty, they will not replace it for free. I am pretty upset about it. I've never had a broken gas tank on any of my yard machines. This is a first. I went online and realized gas tanks have always been a weak point for Toro, they even issued recalls due to broken gas tanks. This is just unacceptable. I don't think i will buy another Toro. The review for Honda looks really good...
