Questions & Answers

How easy is this Toro 20353 AWD mower to pull backwards from an obstriction such as a fence ?

Asked by: Steve
I have owned Toro mowers for 20 years. My present mower is a Super Recycler which I love, but it does have an issue when it is pulled backwards. The drive does not always fully disengage, which necessitates the mower to be rocked back and forth a couple of times to release the drive. I have brought it into a shop while still in warranty, but of course it failed to happen while in the shop. I have just accepted the fact and learned to live with it.

Really looking at this mower, especially as I get older. A question about gas. It says 10-15% ethanol is allowed, but is non-ethanol gas better? If so, should I still use an additive?
Asked by: MowerMikeInGa
Mike is right about ethanol and aluminum not getting along well. Just spent the afternoon cleaning the carburetor on my small self propelled Honda mower. It looked like some ethanol etched some of the aluminum carburetor bowl. That suspension clogged the main carburetor jet. I took out the main jet and cleaned the holes using a strand of fine copper wire from some 18 gauge stranded copper wire. It wasn’t a pleasant job, they tend to stack everything like the heat shield, automatic choke operator, carburetor, and air filter intake shroud (along with gaskets) with 2 long bolts. Trying to juggle that assembly back together was quite annoying. Like Mike, I am an engineer but electrical. We use alcohol only as a cleaning solvent. In addition, I reload my own ammunition and clean my aluminum powder measures with alcohol. After today, I think I will just stick to regular leaded gasoline for all of my outdoor equipment. Fortunately there is a fuel station not too far that specializes in carrying regular leaded gasoline. Living near Lake Erie, a lot of older boats are not really designed for ethanol so there is a market for regular old leaded gasoline here. And FWIW, I have heard using ethanol “summer blend” leaves an overall larger carbon footprint than gasoline alone. By the time you take into account all the energy used in plowing, planting, harvesting, transporting, and distilling alcohol from corn, the overall net carbon emissions are higher than if we used straight gasoline.

Does this mower actually "do all the work" or does it require some help as in pushing it too ?

Asking this because every self propelled mower I've had including the Craftsman I have now requires "help." I want one that I DON"T have to "help."
Asked by: Steve
No pushing on this one.

Toro Recycler 22 in. All-Wheel Drive Personal Pace Variable Speed Gas Self Propelled Mower with Briggs & Stratton Engine is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 1350.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from This mower, model 20353, is well built and performs according to specifications and expectations.... This mower, model 20353, is well built and performs according to specifications and expectations. Being a 4-wheel drive self propelled unit, it performs very well on uneven hilly terrain which was very important to me, living in the Southwest Missouri Ozarks. However, the handle engaging the self propelling drive is cumbersome and gives a somewhat unbalanced, lack of control feel to the operator. Additionally it seems that the operators manual is not up to date as it does not specifically address this model, which is equipped with the Briggs & Stratton engine which does not require oil changes, which is a totally foreign concept to me, and directions as to the location of the engine serial number does not seem to apply to this engine as the number is located on a sticker, and this series of numbers does not seem to be recognized by the web site for registration of the unit. So although the unit seems to be of good quality, the operator's support seems to be out of date and lacking.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Restricted Conditions of Use (Not Commercial) I brought this mower with the only intention of using on select lawns (mainly mulching) and value for money. Was only used max 3 times per week therefore my opinion or review is based solely on this. This is my second 22" (56cm) Personal Pace® All Wheel Drive Mower as my first didn't even last 6 months. Recently returned the first one back to retailer under warranty. Was in two minds money back or exchange. Major starting issues, loss of power, catcher bag fell apart and awd gearing / wheels had worn very quickly and did not engage. This mower cannot handle regular use eg twice/three times per week. The cut is erratic and uneven even with new blades. Note blades wear very quickly and found forever needed to be sharpened or replaced. Cannot handle wet and thick grass. The chute both on the side for (mulching) and rear chute for catcher are too small which causes major blockages. Constantly stopping to unblock. Many other issues to mention but wont allow me too!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from NICE IMPROVEMENT OVER MY 7 YR OLD TORO Personal Pace Mower I upgraded to All Wheel Drive model, to replace my 7 yr old personal pace with rear wheel drive, rather than another rear wheel with electric star (that I never used for those 7 years). It is a bit easier climbing up the high slope of my front lawn with all 4 wheels turning for me, and you don't notice the 4WD on level surfaces, and not harder to corner than the old RWD model. There were two pleasant improvements. 1. The engine is SO MUCH EASIER to start. My 65 year old wife, who likes to cut the back yard was so happy with that upgrade. 2. The bagger holds more and it cuts up and stacks the clippings "like cordwood", making it possible to do one whole section of the yard and empty it at the end, where it always took 2-3 empties with the old model, which started laying out a trail when it could not long hold any more grass. I attribute it to the double blade and some engineering improvement of the way the grass gets moved into the bagger. Great decision, and I am glad I did not go to a Honda.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I bought this mower to replace a 17 year old Toro Super Recycler. Toro has 2 types of mower decks... I bought this mower to replace a 17 year old Toro Super Recycler. Toro has 2 types of mower decks... the basic Recycler stamped steel deck and the Super Recycler cast aluminum deck. This mower is a basic Recycler. I assumed that there wouldn't be a huge difference in the way they mulched between the two decks. Boy, was I wrong. Bottom line, this mower does not mulch. It left full blades of grass everywhere. Being used to the mulching capabilities of the Super Recycler, I was shocked at how bad my lawn looked. I finished my front lawn, loaded the mower into my truck and promptly returned it to Home Depot. Luckily, they were very gracious. I left Home Depot, went to my local hardware store and bought the entry level Super Recycler. The difference was astounding. If you plan on mulching, do yourself a favor and pay a little extra for a Super Recycler. You'll be glad you did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall one of the best lawn mowers for a few solid reasons and my second piece of Toro equipment... Overall one of the best lawn mowers for a few solid reasons and my second piece of Toro equipment (I have their snowblower too). The blade on this mower should win an award for its mulching capability. Really great job of dispersing the micro clippings...so much so it looks like you bagged them. The sheer power/torque of the self propel system matched with the AWD makes cutting a breeze. I previously owned a FWD mower and while I worked fine it lacked the power needed for larger lawns and lawns that may have many elevation changes. With the Toro AWD all those worrys went away. Not only do you cut the lawn faster but you have more fun while doing so. Also...this lawnmower has a self choke and starts on the first pull each time (use premium gas). It runs a bit more quiet than most mowers and you never have to change oil (just top off when needed). What more could you want? This gets my highest recommendation.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from We bought this all wheel drive Toro mower due to the hill on our front lawn. It's not a big lawn ... We bought this all wheel drive Toro mower due to the hill on our front lawn. It's not a big lawn by any means, but we thought it would be easier to use. We had only used it 3 or 4 times in early summer before a broken foot meant we had to hire someone to mow our lawn(with their mower). The next year we got the mower out but it did not seem to have the power it had the previous season. I checked to see if wheels were rotating.Only the front wheels were being turned by the motor due to a broken drive belt. I called Toro who said they do not warrant their belts. So we replaced both front and rear drive belts to be safe. This year a new problem, the transmission will not always disengage when you try to start the mower. I am very disappointed in the quality of this Toro mower. For a 2.5 year old mower that has been used less than 25 times. Our last mower we had over 20 years, it still worked when we sold it, This mower is very disappointing and a VERY expensive mistake. It was $599.00

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Read the manual! So i bought this mower from HD after it had been returned. I got it for 299 since the previous owner used it to cut his front lawn one time and didn't like the self propelled system. I get it home and read the manual. I take it outside and start mowing and realize I'm having to work a little harder than i should to move this thing. So as the manual said to do, i adjusted the cables to the drive system [EXTREMELY easy] and it worked flawlessly. By far this is the best mower I've ever owned. The awd makes it so you don't have to work no matter what type of terrain you are on and the engine does not bog down. Stop reading reviews and get this one, ignore the poor reviews of easily solved issues by simply calling toro or reading the manual. -Or don't read the manual or call toro before returning it, you'll save the next lucky guy like me alot of money on an awesome mower.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive Mower I have mowed my yard with this mower three times. So, it is too early to address dependability. But so far, so good. The feature that most attracted me to this mower was the all wheel drive. I have hills in my front yard, and my real wheel drive mower was just not enough. The all wheel drive on this mower turns this thing into a beast. It has no trouble on hills. And the variable speed is very nice. The variable speed handle is a little tricky to operate, but you can quickly get the hang of it. Can easily operate it with one hand. The engine runs smooth and starts right up. It has an auto prime/choke, that works very well. I have had a very similar Toro in the past and these mowers do a good job of mulching when in that mode. The deck height adjustment is not real smooth. Each wheel independently. But I don't think you are going to find the one lever, all wheel height adjustment on an all wheel drive mower in this price range. So, that's not a big deal.
