Questions & Answers

Why are is it rated so low by customers?

Some customers complained about tihis mower, saying that presents damages very soon?
Asked by: Jack
I have had this mower for about 2.5 years and I have been trying for over 3 weeks now to get it started. I have went thru all the maintenance info and videos I can find, but still it will not start. I guess I am going to have to go to an authorized person to get it working, but I should not have to do that with a mower this new. I was told to stay away from this brand...Lesson learned.

WHAT IS THE GENERAL LIFE OF THIS PARTICULAR MOWER, I HAVE ONE.

I HAVE NEVER HAD A PROBLEM, BUT TODAY IT IS HAVING TROUBLE RUNNING. IT KEEPS CHOKING OUT. I LOVE THIS MOWER, BUT AM THINKING THAT I NEED A NEW ONE. THIS ONE WAS PURCHSED IN 2005. IT WAS A WONDERFUL MOWER!
Asked by: CANDYCANENAN
My guess is it will last a lot longer than either TORO or HD would like to wait for you to buy another. At least 30 years if you will keep the deck from rusting out, change the oil on occasion, don't leave gas in the carb bowl in the off season and keep the cheap air filter changed out. These newer OHV mowers have a plastic carburetor that is prone to trouble with a dirty air filter and no tolerance for old ethanol gas left in them over the winter. At the end of the season, drain the gas and run the engine until it runs out of gas. For those folks who kick 'em to the curb after a few years, I thank you and ask that you leave the grass catcher bag with it. Make it easier for me to resell them.

can you use the mower without the bag on it and when is the best time of the year to buy a Toro.

Asked by: WmD8
Yes, you can use the mower without the bag attached. The bag-on-demand feature allows you to either collect or recycle grass and leaf clippings while the grass bag is attached to the mower. Please view the Operator's Manual for additional information. You can view it online at http://www.homedepot.com/catalog/pdfImages/70/70d3d418-9894-41b2-9bd5-964ce2131170.pdf

Customer Reviews

22 in. Personal Pace Recycler Variable Speed Gas Walk Behind Self Propelled Lawn Mower with Briggs and Stratton Engine is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3940.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Online Home Depot representative was very good at dealing with... Online Home Depot representative was very good at dealing with adjustment for slow delivery date on mower. However, the factory is shooting itself and its customers in the foot by creating instructions which result in overfilling the mower with oil. The customer is told to empty the entire contents of the included plastic oil container of 30 weight oil into the mower. This results in overfilling the mower with oil because there is already a substantial amount of oil in the mower. I took the mower in to the local Home Depot requesting a replacement mower because of all the smoke coming from the engine after I had overfilled it with oil because of the poor factory instructions. It was pointed out that this has been a repeated problem with this mower. After draining some of the oil and replacing the oil-soaked filter, the mower has run well. This cost me about $10.00 for the filter and some frustration with having to get the mower's oil problem corrected.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Used the mower 3 times before the belt came off for the self propel. This looks like a common is... Used the mower 3 times before the belt came off for the self propel. This looks like a common issue on these. Yes, Toro will warranty the repair but all of the "authorized service" shops are saying it will take a week or more. Guess I should ask my half cut lawn to stop growing? If this wasn't a gas powered mower Home Depot would let me exchange it (I am within the 90 day exchange period) but on this product it is only 30 days. For the cost of this mower I would expect it to be better quality. I can't blame home depot for this as it's a Toro issue but I wish they would think twice about supporting a brand that doesn't hold up. Now I get to take time off of work (unpaid) to drop my basically new mower off to get repaired. I also get to pay someone else to mow the lawn while I can't use the mower that I recently paid for. Sorry about the rant but I would highly recommend doing some research on this product and its known issues before you buy, wish I did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Preliminary Review We just bought the 22” Personal Pace mower from the Depot last night! My wife was able to unload it from the truck (with a dolly) by herself... unit is light. Took me 10 min max to assemble... mostly getting the protective plastic off pieces lol! Assembly super simple instructions really are not necessary! Next morning checked oil as manual said to- added oil, gas... baby started right up first pull! I have read some complaints about a white puff of smoke- any small engine will do that due to lack of oil covering all components! Wheel adjustments- some complained about those! They are no different than any other mower I have ever had and took me only a second or two to adjust where I had my Old mower of 15 years at. Anyway- the bagging system on this Toro is way simpler than my last mower! Love it! Also the Mulch/no mulch switch-button couldn’t be any simpler! I bailed my side yard and my front yard in no time- even bagging! So far so good! I will revisit and comment at the end of mowing season which for us isn’t till beginning of December! So far- Excellent mower

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a GREAT Mower!!. Probably the "Kiss of Death" now. I bought this mower last year in mid-summer after doing a lot of comparative research. It is just a great mower. It started on the first pull every time for the first 30 to 40 cuttings and then (this year) it screwed up and I had to pull on it twice - maybe I should replace the plug. It is now the end of the second season and it has never failed to start on the second pull (still usually starts on pull #1 though. It does a great job of cutting whatever I manage to run over and is very easy to maneuver. I really like the personal pace feature, it is a great help when going up a slope with a bag that's filling up. Up until this mower I had never paid over $200 for a walking mower, but this one is really worth the extra cost!! My yard is about 3/5 of an acre and I cut about 40% of that with this mower. I use my rider for the other area that isn't so visible. I'm 68 years old and appreciate anything that makes my chores easier. GREAT JOB TORO - and Thanks!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performance is more than expected. I purchased this mower at the beginning of cutting season this year, And first year in my new home with a fair amount of area to cut. Also the grass here grows very fast and usually gets cut twice a week. I wanted an affordable recycling mower with the option of self propelled and this one seemed perfect for my needs. The recycling system works fantastic and very clean as well as the rear wheel drive, has had no problem pulling its weight and is very easy to maneuver and handle. The extra options that came with it that were just bonuses to me turned out to be extremely useful and adds a lot to the product, such as the easy switch from mulching to bagging, the hose adapter to basically self clean itself and keep it clean and optimum performance while cutting. And the personal pace propulsion works very well. The slightly larger 22" deck is a huge help. So far it has started first pull every time being used twice a week. You get way more than you pay for! My new Go To mower no doubt!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great mower. We had another one... This is a great mower. We had another one that was over 12 years old. The last couple of years I used it to cut brush areas around the house we recently sold and when we moved I left it with the new owner. I abused the heck out of it but it keep right on going. I changed the oiled, plugs and sharpened the blades each year. When we moved to the new house we bought another one. I love the personal pace. When we bought the first we had a steep backyard and it was no effort to cut with the personal pace. I will tell you, if you have any slope the personal pace is much better than just a self-propelled. Now, one changed I did to mine and I wish Toro did was add swivel wheels on the front. Naturally if you but a front wheel drive self propelled you cannot do it, but rear drive you can and it makes a world of difference. Basically one you have the swivel wheels you just walk and can turn on a dime. I highly recommend this mower even though it cost a little more, you will not be disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Mower, Could use some extra power All in all I've been a toro fan boy since I was a child, My grandad had an old Reel mower by toro and a vintage recycler style mower. So when I started my Lawncare buisness the choice was obvious Toro it was, I've got everything from a toro proline 48 to a string trimmer & the gasoline PowerVac from toro. Recently purchased 4 of these recyclers as my older "hand me down" toros had seen far better days, the cut quality mulching/bagging & discharging is excellent everything feels well built and the personal pace self propell is top notch in my opinion! But...but the 163cc Briggs could use a bit more power in certain grass types here in Massachusetts it seemed a bit lost for power, but still chugged threw even though it bogged down regardless of the "no oil change" change your oil yearly at minimum trust me you'll thank me in the long run!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Toro replaced metal gears with plastic starting in 2009 I purchased this mower new in 2010. After 3 summers mowing in Chicagoland (one hour per week) the mower got hard to push. I found that the rear wheel drive gear teeth were made of plastic and were all worn away and that I was doing all the propelling. My friend has a similar Toro mower that she purchased in 2004. I checked the rear wheel gears on her mower and they looked like new and were made of metal. Looking at the parts schematics, part numbers are different starting in 2009. I bought new wheels and after only 3 hours of mowing (one hour per week) one of the wheels was clunking. I pulled it off and discovered the brand new wheel had a spot that had severely worn teeth already. Apparently there are some other worn parts of the mower that are causing short life of this new wheel. Toro went cheap and put plastic gears on this mower that don't last. Also I find this mower to be a bit big and heavy. It is hard to pull backwards like when mowing around bushes. Buy something else.
