Excellent lawn mower ladies!
I’m a 41 year old woman, and have a huge yard to mow. So I ended up buying this lawn mower from Home Depot back in 2015. As of today, 6/20/21, its still going strong! Absolutely love it! No issues whatsoever.

    Good homeowner value
    My first Toro Model 20331 lasted 10 years before the transmission developed problems, the engine, etc, were still in good shape however I decided to upgrade to the latest Model # 21378. I have used it twice since purchasing: It is 16 lbs lighter than the older model. Part of the weight difference can be attributed to a smaller Briggs/Stratton engine on the new model: 150CC compared to the old 190CC. But I suspect the deck may be of a different composition, hence, more weight difference. The 150CC does a good job when using the grass catcher when cutting dry grass; have not tested with wet grass. The gas tank on the new model is smaller than the old model. Now, after 30 minutes of continuous mowing, the tank is dry. The grass-catcher holding rod which fits into the V brackets on either side of the mower, is shorter than it should be. Consequently, it won't "lock into" the V brackets and can fall out when mowing although I have not experienced that problem so far. For me, with a 4300 sq ft lawn, the mower is a good fit, although having to re-fill the gas tank before completing a mow is an inconvenience. The self-propelled is good. And it is advertized as a "No Oil Change" mower, one just tops-off when needed. I will certainly change the oil after my first several mows knowing that debris may be produced by the new engine. After that, maybe just every other year. The larger rear wheels provide excellent maneuverability. Toro offers an option of a slightly larger Honda engine at 160CC .

      Overall, I really like this new lawnmower. Cuts a large swath @ 22 in. Seems to be great on gas mileage as well. Easy start, 1st or 2nd pull every time. Verdicts not in yet regarding the white bag..why white? Front wheel drive is definitely different to get used to even though it seems to perform well in general, it's traction gets questionable in uneven terrain. (That may just be me adapting to it, or maybe it needs a different traction design on the tires) I would recommend it easily to most, with maybe the exception of those who have uneven terrain in their lawns where rear wheel drive would most probably perform better.

      This front wheel self propelled lawn mower Is a lifesaver for me as an older woman that does my own yard work, it is now awesome to use . It replaces my older mower that was a struggle to push up my large hilly terrain yard. I can now look forward to mowing. The high rear wheels , plus being self propelled was the incentive for my purchase. I truly love my Toro front wheel drive mower.

      I bought this for my stepfather for Father’s Day. He loves it! I gotta say he really enjoys the easy start self driven mechanism in this Toro lawnmower. He saves half the time when mowing the lawn. This lawnmower weighs just right and needless to say it is very user friendly. It is also very easy to assemble. My stepfather and I totally recommend this item.

      My college daughter help her ol mom put this together! We had fun as it was easy to assemble, but a first for both of us! We choose the highest setting on the wheels, but decided the next time we cut the grass, we would lower the wheels by one notch(1/2"), which was a simple process.And, we liked the mulching ability, as opposed to using the bag. Less clean up.

      Not Real Happy
      The bagging system is crazy on this model, when I put the bag on under the flap that flap fills up with grass what's the purpose. Don't like that. I also noticed on this one it's hard for me to start it I have a real old toro at my cabin and one pull is all it takes to start it, this one is sometimes 5-6. For a woman thats to much.
