      Q:Can you start the mower without having the self propelled drive engaged?
      by|Aug 3, 2020
      5 Answers
      Answer This Question

      A:  Nope. When I used it. The mechanism needed to be pushed down to start and the self propelled action happened when you put force down on the handle

      by|Aug 10, 2020

        A:  Absolutely! The drive is engaged when you push in the larger plastic handle on the end. The small wire handle above must be held down to start the motor. The blade is always running if the motor is running. Let go of the small wire handle, and the motor shuts off. Impossible to stick your fingers near the blade with the motor running.

        by|Aug 3, 2020

        A:  The mower should always be started with the self-propelled drive disengaged. The drive is disengaged as long as you do not push the movable personal pace handle bar forward. You will need to hold the safety shut off bar down on the personal pace bar.

        by|Aug 3, 2020

        A:  Yes you can.

        by|Aug 11, 2020

        A:  Yes, to start the engine, hold the blade-control bar against the handle and pull the recoil-start handle. When you pull the recoil-start handle, pull it lightly until you feel resistance, then pull it sharply. Allow the rope to return to the handle slowly. Once the engine is started, you can then engage the self-propel if desired. To operate the self-propel drive, simply walk with your hands on the upper handle and your elbows at your sides, and the machine will automatically keep pace with you. You can also manually push the mower by grabbing the bar underneath the self-propel handle. Thank you.

          Answer This Question

          A:  Since engines run on a fuel air mixture, check, clean or replace the air filter. Assuming there is fresh fuel in the tank, remove the fuel bowl and check for dirt or a stuck float. Also spray the carb with cleaner and add some cleaner to the fuel tank.

                Great for awhile
                [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Had this mower for 5 years now, works great, doesn’t always start on first or second pull but no real problem. Just finished the lawn this evening and the handle came apart?? Looks like a clean break, never seen anything like this before. Gonna have to search and see if I can find a new handle and spring.

                  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!

                  Toro Personal Pace is a "Must Have" Mower!
                  Why oh why it took me this long to re-engage my relationship with Toro products I will never know? From my early days growing up in Minnesota, Toro always represented the top-of-the line in lawn maintenance! Just recently I was in the market for a self-propelled reliable mower and the Toro Personal Pace has not disappointed! From the moment it arrived at my door it has performed it every way - from reliable starting (1 or 2 pulls) to beautiful cuts to the amazingly intuitive self-propelled "Personal Pace" - This mower is a true dream!

                  Out of the box the mower seems good. It fired up on the first or second pull as advertised. Rear wheel drive is definitely a nice feature on my sloped yard. Cutting power is average. It doesn't seem great at mulching, but when using the bag or side shoot, things work better. Largest complaint for me is that plastic pieces that hold the side shoot on have broken, so now I have no option to use the side shoot. Hoping customer service can offer a positive solution for me, but yet to be determined.

                  Does a great job mowing grass and leaves
                  I usually have to rake most of my leaves before cutting and now I don't if I cut frequently enough, I use my lawnmower to mulch leaves as well as a lawn mower. It has great power and takes me half the time to cut the grass now. I have enough grass to use a riding mower but prefer this self propelled action for exercise! My lawn looks like it is professionally cut by me.
