Rated 1 out of 5??by BeenHeavyinFlorida Regret Purchasing This Mower
I bought this mower to replace a 24+ year old Toro. The personal pace system is difficult to use. The self propel stops when you make a turn because you have to be pushing the handle forward for the self propel to engage. The old way allowed you to keep the self propel engaged as you turned a corner. Also with this system if you need to inch up to a plant or tree that is impossible. When you push the handle forward the mower takes off. I think the system is very unusable. I asked my dealer if I could trade this in on a different model and they said no.
The mower is much less sturdy than the old mower. It will not last 24 years like the old one.
The handle does not fold up as the old one did. This mower takes more space to transport.
I have had this mower for one month.

Rated 5 out of 5??by JeffIowaHawkeye Great recycling mower
We purchased this mower a couple months ago to replace our 8 year old Toro Recycler which was a good mower, but struggled when mulching thick grass. This new mower has a lot more power and easily mulches even rain soaked grass. The personal pace system is the best there is too. If you don't mulch, something less expensive may work. But if you do mulch (and you should), you need this mower.

Rated 5 out of 5??by Christianguy247 This mower is unbeatable!!!
I reviewed several mowers before purchasing the Super Recycler. I had a Recycler purchased from a big box store and really appreciated the Personal Pace drive and the GTS starting system. It last through 8 seasons of mowing in Texas and was in need of a new transmission. I decided to upgrade to the Super Recycler because my yard is large, hilly and rather rough. My dealer advised the larger transmission and longer warranty would benefit me in the long run. As I was making my purchase, another customer came in and was bragging on his Super Recycler that was running strong after 10 years! I'm sold on Toro!!!

Rated 2 out of 5??by BigDaddy10 Great performance, but broke in 3 months
I purchased this mower brand new in April, 2014. By the end of July, the self-propelled feature quit because of a broken belt. Local repair shop where I purchased the mower took more than 2 weeks to fix and the repair is not covered under warranty because it is a "wear item". After 3 months?!? I am out $50 for the belt repair. Sadly, this mower is smooth, powerful and is the best mulcher I have ever owned. The self-propelled feature is perfect - easy to use and regulate the speed (don't even have to think about it). But a broken belt in 3 months (the repair shop said the pulleys were all fine) is not right.

Rated 5 out of 5??by Bob49 It's a pleasure to cut grass with this.
It always starts on the first pull. Steep hillsides are easy to cut horizontally with no more effort than it takes to walk it without a mower. It's mulching performance is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5??by John4th Best mower EVER!!
Ever since I could cut grass it's been with a Toro Super Recycler. My dad has had 3 Toro Super Recyclers in the last 26 years, (2 are still in service), and today I finally got 1 of my own. I just got it today and cut with it the first time and I can say this is the best push mower on the market. I knew immediately when I started cutting that Toro has continued to improve this mower year after year. This is hands down the best cutting, easiest maneuvering, and feature loaded mower on the market!
I had no doubt and didn't consider another mower when it was "my time" to get a push mower. Toro makes the best walk behind mower on the planet, if you purchase any other mower you are only shorting yourself and your lawn. Thanks Toro for making a great quality product that generations of family members can use. It may sound cheesy but when I cut my yard today it brought back memories of cutting when I was a kid with my dad's first Toro.
Buy this mower!

Rated 5 out of 5??by JimD Mower is working find so far
This mower does the job that I need it to do. Had some difficulty trying to figure out how to get it to discharge on the side - the manual wasn't very clear on this (at least to me). Otherwise, I'm very happy with the purchase. I ALMOST look forward to mowing the lawn now!

Rated 5 out of 5??by Rit333 Turns a chore into fun...really !
Everyone knows that cutting the lawn is a thing that you HAVE to do, and is often thought to be as much fun as going to the dentist.
However...this lawn mower actually makes me look forward to cutting the lawn - honest ! It starts first pull, runs smooth, love the personal pace system, and it seems to be very durable...and not only that, it actually good looking, and you can't say that about many mowers. Also, the easy to raise and lower handle system is a very slick setup.
I have owned many Toro products over my lifetime, and once again, this is a winner.
Keep up the good work.
NO, I DO NOT work for Toro !!!
