Which grade of gasoline is required for this mower?

Asked by: Ed
87 is fine, but unless you get fresh gas everytime you mow the gas will loose octane sitting in a can. I always buy 93 octane for all my gas stuff and put seafoam in the container (doesnt take much to treat 5 gallons) This keeps all my stuff running top shape. it is what i have always done and i never have issues. some other part fails before any of the fuel system.

When stowing in the upright position does the oil or gas leak out?

Asked by: Jason
IT's not supposed to. That said, I have found a problem when stored upright a gas "feed' into the air filter that just started leaking into the air filter cover. Not sure if it is because the tank was full, or if this is supposed to be an intake that has a float valve and it's stuck. Have more diagnosing to do, but wife is not happy with this, especially since it could be a safety hazard...

I've heard that starting the mower can be a problem after vertical storing. Has anyone run into that?

Asked by: JG
I purchased in the fall 2017, and used it only a couple times before Smart Storing it. The 2018 spring afterwards it took up to 3 times to start it every use. I smart Store it every time as I don't have space. I also store it with the premium gasoline in those cans you buy at HD. Not full, just half. But! Started it up again in 2019, same storage method, same quality gas from HD, it runs first pull every time. Who knows! I store my mower every single time, and upright all winter. I'm a Michigander, so my winters are 4-5 months.

Toro Recycler 22 in. SmartStow Personal Pace Variable Speed High-Wheel Drive Gas Walk Behind Self Propelled Lawn Mower is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 1552.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Purchased a month ago and have used 4 times. Difficult to start - the blade brake lever is diffic... Purchased a month ago and have used 4 times. Difficult to start - the blade brake lever is difficult to disengage when starting as it has to be held against the drive handle. This results in the lawnmower drive being engaged when pulling the start rope. The engine does however start on the first pull every time so far. Emptying the bag is not easy, as you have to hold the rear cover open when installing or removing the bag (my previous 15 year old Craftsman mower had an automatic linkage that automatically kept the rear chute open when installing and removing the bag). The engine stutters and stumbles when going over rough and bumpy terrain, where my Craftsman did not. The engine runs fine on smooth terrain. The drive and blade brake cables touch the rear drive wheels when set to the lowest mowing height, although I do not use this height setting. The vertical stow feature is easy to configure and saves a lot of storage space.

My lawn is a very thick St. Augustine, well-manicured (not a weed patch), well irrigated, and fertilized. At my mid-70s age, with the hot humid Florida heat, and very healthy, thick St. Augustine on a slight hillside, I needed a rear-wheel-drive for this 45-minute job. At first, I bought a Honda mower with the rear-wheel- drive, self-propelled. Unfortunately, the height adjustment on the left rear wheel froze after the first use, so I returned it. I then got the Toro model#20332, Personal Pace Recycler, with the Briggs and Stratton engine. This Toro has performed excellently for the past 5 runs on the 45-minute job. I have to rehydrate a few times for each run, and the mower restarts with just one pull each time. Remarkably, the Briggs and Stratton on the old Troy-Bilt mower did the same for the 12 years I had it. The Personal Pace feature of the Toro is fantastic. It drives smoothly, without any jerkiness of the Honda. The stow-away feature on the Toro is also superior. I recommend this mower, and most probably would buy it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Toro 22 Inch Recycler SmartStow PersonalPace Mower If you’re looking for a unique mower, look no further. This mower met all my expectations, minimal storage space due to its SmartStow feature, starts first pull every time, and the Personal Pace variable speed feature is excellent. I have a movement disability and the Personal Pace allows me to mow at my own pace instead of being dragged around like other self propelled mowers. The wheels being located inside the blade radius allows for mowing up against curbs, foundations etc. All that’s missing is a reverse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mower Very impressed by this mower. The power is great, gets through thick or wet grass with ease, I use the mulching feature and I’m happy with the deposited clippings - they don’t clump up, lawn looks great afterward. The smart stow is a great feature, it’s so nice to stand it up out of the way. Small downside is reading your oil level after it’s been upright. The personal pace feature is pretty cool, it can be jumpy when you’re getting used to it, but it’s nice for corners, you can start off with one hand. It’s better than on/off self propelled mowers. I compared prices between models and other brands as well and I’m very happy I got all these features for the price I paid. Purchased online and delivered to local store, the process was quick and easy.

The last one I had lasted about 17 years (still have it, too) and is still working. The only problem with the old one is the transmission won't go into "neutral" when I disengage the Personal Pace handle (might be a problem with the drive belt). Been doing that for a couple of years now. BUT, for 15 years it ran awesome! Still starts on the first pull and still mows the yard like a champ. Just difficult to pull backwards is all. Got my new one out of the box and WOW! Forgot how much fun it is to mow the yard. Like a Boeing 747 jetliner, it practically runs itself. It feels like it weighs about 10 pounds, too. Super easy to maneuver and the big rear wheels seem to keep it more stable on bumpy ground. Does a 180 degree turn-around on a dime. Highly recommend the Personal Pace mower from Toro. I'll be mowing until I'm 90!

But the last 10 years they have been getting more expense, and less quality, the last one I bought was a piece of crap. Plastic handles for the self propelled, the drive train lack power, has to push most of the time to get it to move. Finally struggling with the darn thing for two years, the handle broke. Decided to get this Toro brand and its been the best darn thing. Strong, the push option for the self propelled will not break on you, and standing this thing on its feet is great. I have had it for 4 months and have a little under an acre of grass that been getting cut every two weeks. I have nice thick grass for about 70 percent of the home, then behind the fenced area, its a bit rough terrain, this machine handles both with easy. The only reason I give it a 4 star it Toro could of added a one level height adjustment, instead to move the darn thing up or down its 4 individual levels you have to deal with and there are not easy to move either. Add that Toro Company and you will have a great machine.

It is light weight, Personal Pace Variable Speed self propulsion can be super fast or just a slow crawl just by simple pushing on the handle bar. Greatest thing with the 22 inch deck, for every two passes, cut the width of 2.5 passes on previous 21 inch deck reducing the number of passes. Therefore, this mower cut a lot faster for me. Deck cut width is wider than tire width so following passes cut the tire compression ruts so no clumping or pilling of clippings accumulation when mulch mowing. Care should be taken when filling up the gas tank and possibly too steep of lawns as the Auto choke feature which is a small tube at top of gas tank throat allows vapor to bleed into the air filter chamber. DON'T overfill the gas tank, or mow on a steep incline with full tank, gas can flow through choke vapor tube directly onto the filter saturating it and cause misfires. So, don't overfill gas tank like I did the first time but the filter dried quickly and I did not have problems starting. Smartstow feature is great saves a lot of garage space. I mow Bermuda grass lawn every 5 to 6 days max keeping a nice green manicured lawn preventing scalping and browning caused from going too long between mows. This mower is the best mower I have ever used doing the frequent mulch mowing. Finest grass clippings and absolutely no bunching or clumping of clippings. This Toro mower makes me feel like I am on vacation while mowing compared to all the previous self propelled mowers I have used over 38 years of mowing.

I researched mowers and selected this model for the rear wheel drive after reading reviews of front wheel drive models losing traction when the weight of the grass catcher takes the weight off of the front drive wheels. The stand-up storage was the selling point for me on this particular model This turns out to be the only other thing I like (besides the rear wheel drive). I was aware that all four wheels had to be adjusted separately, but after having a one-lever adjustable Craftsman for the last several years, this turns out to be a hassle. One-lever adjustment would have earned 5 Stars on "Features". The real downer is that every time I go over the slightest bump in my lawn the mower loses power temporarily and seems like it is going to stall. It's been pretty dry, so the turf feels a little more bumpy, and we have some tree roots near the surface, so it happens a lot. So far it regains power and keeps moving. But, right out of the box? I did not expect this and I don't see it getting better, only worse over time. It has happened both times I used it. I'm debating returning it and starting over with my search. This is what earned the 1 Star rating on "Quality". Otherwise I would have rated it 4-5 Stars.
