Questions & Answers

Do you have to walk forward with mower?

Can you pull it backwards without turning it off
Asked by: RB
You don't have to only walk forward, but it's easier than walking backwards.

Will the self-propelled function work with the blade off and the motor running?

Asked by: Retroren
i use this mower commercially, servicing smaller areas that my toro 4225ztr cant get to. there is no PTO function for this mower, meaning if the engine is running so is the blade. its a direct connection to the crank of the engine. however, you can easily tilt the mower while running to lift the blade above whatever your driving over to avoid hitting it and dinging the blade and use the self-propelled transmission to move the mower easily. I don't know what these other answers are referring to, but you CANNOT disengage the mower blade while the engine is running.

does engine continue to run when blade is stopped?

when releaseing the handle does the engine continue to run avoiding restarting.
Asked by: bb
Yes the engine continues while the blade is stopped. This allows you to empty the grass catcher without stopping the engine and restarting it.

Toro Recycler 22 in. Personal Pace Variable Speed Gas Walk Behind Self Propelled Lawn Mower with Blade Stop System is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 3377.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hoped for More I was really excited to get this mover as I have used similar ones in the past. When I opened it up and started assembling it, the handle and levers felt as if they had been cost reduced over previous models and now they feel a lot more fragile. Additionally the left rear drive wheel fell off the first time I used the mower. I used a 1/2" wrench to put everything back together and have mowed 3 times since without issues but I am always thinking about it now every time I take it out. Briggs engine is OK. I am used to Honda and feel that they restart better if for some reason you need to shut the engine down in the middle of your mow. In my case I needed to because I ran out of gas in the middle of my yard. The engine does not have a very big fuel tank in my opinion. I do enjoy the blade stop as that was the feature I was looking for. The mower works fine but I am not sure I would be willing to buy again. I am sad about this as all my friends have Toro Mowers and I was looking forward to my own.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Gutless Wonder I bought this mower about a year ago and was initially very happy with all the features. The good: Clean out port Blade stop system Personal Pace Rear wheel drive traction The bad: Lack of power Despite all the good qualities, the one bad one really ruins the whole mower. I find that it barely has enough power to mow, let alone mow, self propel, and mulch. So mulching is out completely. Mowing is just fair, if the grass is even slightly long or thick you might as well set the height very high if you want to be able to mow without stopping every couple of feet. Either the motor isn't making as much power as is claimed or they need to use a more powerful motor. It is easy to start though. I thought I did a fair amount of research when making my buying decision, but apparently I didn't do enough. I hope to help someone so they don't make the same mistake. I don't know what I would recommend instead of this so be diligent and do your own research before buying!

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 So far, Excellent First, the self propulsion feature is amazing on this mower. Up and down hills with no effort. The mower moves without any effort from the person but does not take off in an uncontrollable way. This is probably the most impressive aspect of the mower. You feel like you are simply walking with the mower as it cuts. There were only 3 or 4 parts that I had to put on the mower to assemble it. It assembled very easily and was intuitive to put together. The mower started up with the first pull and has done so each time; impressive. The quality of the parts are very good and the use of the mower is intuitive and simple. The only downside is that the wheels are easy to set at different heights and not realize it. The notches are not numbered and it is easy to forget that the height adjustment direction is reverse on the back wheels compared to the front.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I ordered this mower online and I called the store... I ordered this mower online and I called the store and they put it together for me. I adjusted the wheels as advised in the manual and added oil that came with the mower. It started with the first pull, it takes a couple of pulls now that I've used it a couple of times. I've been using the mulching option with the chute attached due to the damp long grass. Our April and May have been raining almost everyday, so it's hard to cut when the grass it really dry. I did take the chute off but the grass started clumping under the mower. The only thing I don't like is the cables on the left side get caught on things in my yard and then I have to stop and backup so I don't damage them. I have about 1/2 acre lot and I almost run out of gas before I finish. It's also a nice feature that you can stop the mower and the blades stop and you can pick up things without restarting the mower. Overall it's a great mower at a great price. I really appreciate Home Depot for all their assistance.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lousy experience I ordered this Toro mower online. When I opened the box, I discovered the deck of the mower was coated with oil. I cleaned it up, completed the final assembly as per the instructions, filled it with the oil that came with the mower, a tank full of fresh gas, and the gas additive that came with the mower. Over the next three days I tried to get this mower started, and it would not start. I loaded it into the SUV and returned it to the closest store. Home Depot then sent me another mower (10% discount - same brand and model). This mower also had a coat of oil on the engine and side-discharge chute, and the lever to adjust the cutting height of the right rear wheel was broken off. I am now waiting for someone from the local Home Depot store to take this mower back. I do not know if the issues with this mower are the fault of Home Depot or Toro, or both. I seem to be destined to re-learn the following lesson again and again - don't buy anything that has moving parts from Home Depot.

I am a 74 year old retired woman who bought a home for the first time with a lawn (I lived in a condo before). I don't have much hand strength in my right hand as I had a bad break a couple of years ago. So far, I have mowed my lawn 3 times and it starts on the first pull (with my right hand)! I am extremely happy. And the rear wheel drive with the variable speed is just what I need to get the job done. The blade stop feature is also a much needed feature which I use. I use the mulching feature when I mow. One thing I have not tried yet is the hose wash-out feature, as I tilt the mower when I am done and look under at the blade and it's housing - it is usually quite clean. I can't say enough accolades for this mower! I look forward to mowing my yard!
