Rated 5 out of 5Â by Zooky I'm impressed!
I am a y.o. male, post-stroke so my walking speed isn't very quick (I'd lose in a turtle race). Thus, the personal pace is a feature. So is the blade stop system as it eliminates the need to start after each stop to empty the bag (hard for an old man to do). The sucking power is excellent - I have yet to see it leave any cut grass on the ground. I put it mulch mode in some taller grass and was impressed at how finely ground the mulched grass ended up.
A definite downer is that it very heavy which makes it difficult to turn it around a cut in the opposite direction or around corners.

The Personal Pace Self-Propelled function and the Blade Stop System work like a wonder. The Personal Pace system with rear-wheel drive really matches your walking speed. The 190 cc 7.25 ft.-lbs. gross torque Briggs & Stratton engine is powerful and the largest you can get in a 22 inch mower.
The mower's ReadyStart technology provides easy starting without the need to choke or prime and works so well my wife can start it easily. The Blade-control bar stops the blade within 3 seconds of being released for safety so you can remove debris from your path or while you empty the grass bag. And to top it off itâs backed by Toro's 3-Year Guaranteed-to-Start promise and 2-Year Full warranty.
So far, so good. Time will tell if this machine lasts and holds up as advertised.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by cinnamon An average mower for the price. Expected better quality.
The mower cuts well, but wheels feel cheap and not very sturdy. Also, purchased this 22" personal pacer because relative had one from a few years ago and I tried it and liked. Bought one (they did not have one on display) and when we took it out of the box realized the trailing shield is made so it lays flat and not curled like the older model that I tried.
This new type of shield that is now on this model is very cheap
and makes it very hard to back up the mower when necessary.
Very disappointed in this feature. The curled shield was much more user friendly and the wheels on the older model seemed better quality.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by louisger One problem that I am addressing on Oct.3, 2014
This is my second push mower from Toro. My first is still working after fifteen years of excellent service. I decided to buy a second one due to this mowers age in service. The new mower has excellent features as the one to wash the underside by a permanent garden hose connector found on the mowers deck.
The problem I am having is after the mower is running. The mower starts on the first pull. When I shut off the mower to change the catcher bag when full of grass or add more gas, the mower will not start again. If I let the mower set for ten or more minutes, it will then start as easy as the first pull. I don't get it. Do I need service? Please let me know.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by VFrog This product is ideal for home use.
The Model 20332 is my third Toro purchase. I have a Model 56150 832 Professional Rear Engine Rider and 9 year old Model 20041 that is my back up mower. Aside from routine maintenance and replacing broken or worn parts, this mower has performed flawlessly. The only thing that was unsatisfactory was the electric start. It failed within the first year. I didn't miss it much. Just another thing to go wrong. So happy with the Model 20041, it was a no-brainer to replace it with the 20332. I decide to forgo the electric start this time. I would strongly recommend this mower to anyone looking for a reasonably priced and reliable mower for home use.
