Q:Is this mower a fold and store?
by|Dec 8, 2023
2 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  Hi BobW. Thank you for shopping at The Home Depot. Toro's SmartStow feature simply fold, lock and store to save 70% space. It is not available on this model. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance. Rick_HD_OC

by|Dec 8, 2023

A:  Hi, there! Thanks for your question. Yes, you can fold the handle for optimized storage. However, this model does not have the SmartStow feature to be stored upright. To fold the handle, remove and save the 2 handle knobs and 2 carriage bolts from the handle brackets, fold the handle by rotating it forward, routing the cables to the outside, and loosely install the handle knobs and carriage bolts on the handle brackets. You can view illustrated instructions on page 17 of the manual at: https://www.toro.com/getpub/190731. If you’re interested in a similar unit with the SmartStow feature, we would recommend checking out unit, #21465, online at: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Toro-Recycler-22-in-Briggs-Stratton-SmartStow-Personal-Pace-High-Wheel-Drive-Gas-Walk-Behind-Self-Propelled-Lawn-Mower-21465/314426545. Thanks!

      Q:will the mower self-propel in reverse?
      by|Sep 25, 2023
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Hi, Roger! Thanks for your question. Self-propel works to propel the machine forward. It should roll freely or be able to be pulled backwards with ease. If the machine does not freely roll backward after self-propelling, stop walking, hold your hands in place, and allow the machine to roll a couple of centimeters (inches) forward to disengage the wheel drive. You can also try reaching just under the upper handle to the metal handle and pushing the machine forward a couple of centimeters (inches). If the machine still does not roll backward easily, contact an Authorized Service Dealer. Thanks!

        Q:I changed the oil, not knowing that it was not necessary. Just check and add. Ow it won't start. Is there a reset or something to enable it to start again?
        by|Sep 22, 2023
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Hi, there! Thanks for your question. First, ensure you added the correct amount of oil to the unit— if the oil level in the crankcase is too low or too high and you run the engine, you may damage the engine. There is residual oil in the crankcase after you drain the oil— do not pour the entire capacity of oil (15 fluid ounces) into the crankcase. Carefully pour about 3/4 of the engine capacity of oil into the oil-fill tube and wait 3 minutes for the oil to settle in the engine. You can view more information on page 20 of the manual at: https://www.toro.com/getpub/190731. If the problem persists, please feel free to contact The Home Depot customer service department at 800-430-3376 any day between 6 a.m. and 2 p.m. EST. Thanks!

                Disappointed at faults found
                Picked up from Home Depot. Finished set up. Put on Lawn front drive jambed up in the first 2 minutes. Being an Engineer and not having the time or patience to take it to a Toro agent. I removed front wheel to find circlip had come off drive shaft and was jammed in the wheel cogs. So fixed that and then used again and after half an hour a rear wheel fell off. In summary the engineering and design of the machine is fine and the component parts look fine. The engine is good but the quality control of the assembly of my machine was not to standard. Easily fixed by anyone with a socket set and a bit of mechanical understanding.

                  I love this mower

                  Personal Pace marketing gimick
                  PROS. Starts easy, lots of power, cut quality is great, mulches excellent and bags very well. AWD on slopes helps keep mower trac straight. CONS. The personal pace drive. You literally have to push the mower for self propel. When You stop the belts don't fully release and you literally have to drag the mower backwards. To cheapen the drive design with just slipping a belt for a transmission they use "Personal Pace" like it is some exotic feature. Will be 4sale on Marketplace

                    Does exactly what we needed it to do
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Handles our mild inclines, and powers through our patches of thicker grass pretty darn well. The lawn mowing goes much quicker than it used to with our old mower. The mulching is so fine that the only time where you can see the grass residue is when I hit thicker patches. We are VERY happy with our purchase

                    Like the all wheel drive
                    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Like how light it is and ease of manuveablity. Easy to start. Replaced my 29 year old toro model 20107. Which is still in excellent condition. The new one is lighter and easier for me to handle on our slope.

                      Up hill, all the way!
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We bought this mower a couple of months ago and just in time for the first mowing. I'm 62 years old and we just bought our home last September. Our address is on "Icy Hill Lane", and there is no doubt that it is exactly that. With all the hills on our property, there is no way I would be able to do all the mowing in a single day. I love the fact that the "All Wheel Drive" feature makes the mowing not only much easier, but makes it possible to even do. I also love the quick and easy way I can change from mulching to bagging with a quick, short movement of my hand. Just push a button in and "shift" it into the other mode. It's just that simple! The "All Wheel Drive" feature was the deciding factor that convinced me to get this mower. I can't imagine mowing my yard/property with a "push" mower. This mower has made my life much easier when it comes to mowing. I would highly recommend this mower to everyone who needs a mower, even if you just have a flat surface to mow. It will make your life much easier, too! There isn't anything about this mower that I dislike. Thank you Toro for building such a fine, high quality machine!
