Questions & Answers

The electric start is completely charged but nothing happens when I turn on the key

I replaced the fuse that was next to the battery but it did not help.
Asked by: Joan
Check the fuse. There's a video out there on YouTube probably that shows how. Had my mower 2 days and didn't think it could be that but once I took out the old one I saw it was bad. Put the new one in and it starts every time.

Toro Recycler 22 in. Briggs and Stratton Personal Pace Self Propelled Gas Walk-Behind Lawn Mower with Electric Start is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 3821.

But here's what happened: First time I used it, the drive belt started smoking and shredded. It was probably incorrectly installed and it broke. I emailed Toro and got a cheery email that they'd send a replacement belt and here's a video that shows how easy it is to replace the belt. Wrong video. The belt was a huge pain to replace, but I got it done and now it's fine. Except then the left rear wheel started literally coming loose and falling off. Yes, after tightening the bolt and eventually replacing the stepped washer as they call it, it still falls off. So I contact Toro customer service again and cheerily get another email to take the mower and proof of purchase to an authorized dealer near me so they can determine if there's a manufacturer's defect. I'm not happy with this at all. I've owned and used Toro mowers for well over 40 years and have never seen issues like this. In fact, I have a 2013 model of this same exact mower, 20334 that doesn't have these issues. Not happy at all...

I looked at a lot and decided since I had back issues to go with the Personal Pace Self Propelled with Electric Start. I am so glad we did. I put it together myself with attaching the handle cover for use or not with the bagging attachment (which I do not use since I mulch the clippings for fertilization). It was easy to setup. The instructions are pictures with no words so it may take some others a little more time to attach everything. Not a showstopper for me. I charged the electric start for 24 hours as suggested. After filling up with oil and gas, I tried to start it. It started the first push of the start button. It mowed and mulched as expected. I adjusted to a height of 3.5" since I have Fescue. The only issue I had was that two height adjustment covers broke. I contacted Toro and already sending me four replacements free of charge. I would recommend this product for sure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I looked a lot and glad I got the Toro 20334 Well, I looked around and read lots of reviews and I'm glad I got this one. Easy to set up out of the box and started right up after charging the battery overnight. When you add the enclosed oil, don't dump it all in. But check the dipstick 'cause for mine, it overfilled and I had to drain a little out. Mowing with it was a pleasure - no clumps - the Vari Speed rear wheel drive works great - easy and smooth around curves and circles - very easy to do back and forth maneuvers around trees and borders. I now realize that because the way the Vari Speed is designed, the rear wheel drive is better then a front wheel drive. So easy to run up to something like a tree and then just pull the handle back the drive stops, and it freewheels instantly so I can easily pull it back and then push back on the handle and it goes forward as fast or as slow as I want. Excellent design. I also have a Toro multi attachment weed whip (two years) that I'm very happy with - starts, runs and idles well.

First no rope pulling. Just pull back the metal handle and push the blue button. No primer bulb to push or choke to set. See Photo. The battery is located at the back of the mower behind the bagging cover. A small charger is included to recharge the battery. Second no heavy mower to push. The mower is self propelled and only goes as fast as you want to walk. Very easy to control the speed. If you stop walking it stops moving. It's also simple to change from bagging to mulching. The bag is light and easy to remove. There is a lever that must be moved from bagging to mulching. See Photo. Finally cleanup is a snap. Simply connect your garden hose to the clean out connection on the mower deck. See Photo. Turn on the water and start the engine. Run both until the water running out from under the mower is clear. I have used the mower 3 times in 3 weeks and it has started every time without trouble.

I thought this mower was great when I first bought it, but it has a horrible problem with clippings leakage, no matter if it's set to catch or mulch. Almost every time I make a 180 degree turn at the end of the lawn, it dumps a half-circle of clippings. With the bag in place, I couldn't ever see how this was happening. I thought it was because the bag wasn't being held tightly enough against the rear of the deck by that black plastic deflector assembly, as the springs are not very strong. However, I found that when mulching, even after carefully cleaning the area where the flap seals and making sure it's down and tight in the recycle position, clippings constantly flow out of the center part of the rear deflector and build up on the rubber flap. The attached photo was taken when bagging, after removing the bag after making just two passes on a 55 foot wide lawn. Sooner or later, those slide off the flap when turning the mower, requiring more cleanup than I have had to do with any other Toro mower I have owned. Totally unacceptable performance.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful mower. Easy to use, especially for an older person.... Wonderful mower. Easy to use, especially for an older person. The 'push-button' start works really well. I have arthritis and this is the best kind of mower to get. Easy to push because it walks with you. I had an old mower that, once the bar was pulled back, I had to run behind it (the neighbors had a few laughs when I mowed). This mower lets you set the pace. Comes almost completely assembled. I put the rest of it together and if I can do it, anyone can do it. You even get a can of oil with purchase. All you need to have is gasoline.I recommend this mower very, very highly. You can use the 'pull' starter (which is very easy) or the push-button starter - it gives you a choice. Personally, I was tired of having my arm hurt for several days after mowing, so I LOVE the push button.If you're looking for a mower, this is the one to get and Toro has always been a very good product. Absolutely love it!

The quick start and the self drive functions need improvement. The propel mechanism is experimental at best, doesn't work like it's advertised, and is more taxing on the body than just pushing it by hand, which is difficult because the handle is designed to be used with powered drive, with a bar located underneath for manual push operation. It works OK on a clean flat sidewalk, but any resistance like thicker/thinner grass or a rough spot in the lawn causes it to lurch and stop, lurch and stop. After four mowings on a flat yard I have yet to get used to it. The part of my yard that is inclined slightly makes it worse, so I manually push it up or down small inclines. The electric start works well, always starts the engine, but must be recharged overnight before it will work if the mower sits in the garage for a week or more. It does cut well, with acceptable power. I can't in good faith recommend this mower for just anyone. I'll eventually use just the pull rope to start it and figure a way to work around the propel function hiccups.

Requires frequent repair, constant maintenance, frequent engine failure. I purchased this because of excellent Toro products a decade ago. I am sorry I did. I own and maintain generators, outboard motors, motorcycles, chainsaws - this is easily the worst piece of gas powered equipment I own. I am able to keep everything and anything else running, year after year, even after winterizing and storing for over a year - not this mower. It stops multiple times each season, requiring that I drain the gas, flip it over, remove a part, soak it in ether, then put it back together. Runs fine after this 30 minute drill. If doing that 3-4 times a season sounds good, then this is the mower for you. No, it's not the gas, I am using true fuel and stabilizer. My outboards run fine for 15 years, so if you get that, you know I know what I'm doing. Stay away from this thing.
