  • Toro Recycler - Green Grass, Green Neighbors

    Apr 5, 2004 by michiman1 is a Top Reviewer on Epinions in Home and Garden
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Toro brand quality, Easy start, Good performance and cut, 22" cut.
    Cons: Prefer aluminum deck on Super Recycler over steel deck on the Recycler model

    Summary: For us here in the cooler zones, we're just days from breaking out the old power equipment for the summer. Sometimes one look in the light of a warm springtime day offers the notion that it's time to replace our current model. I do suggest checking out ... read more

    Pros: 2 Pulls starting
    Cons:   Breaks down easily.

    Summary: I purchase a Toro Recycler a little over 4 years ago from Home Depot based on research and pricing and finally decided on the Toro. This was purchased in the summer of 2005. I do have to say it ran great the 1st year never having a problem and always ... read more

    Dec 8, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to start and operate, cuts neatly, low priced.
    Cons: Few. Bag has area that traps grass between layers.

    Summary: When the gearbox finally went out on my 18 year-old mower I was forced to look into buying a new one. After researching a number of brands, I decided on the Toro Recycler Model 20071. The Home Depot had it in stock, and I bought it for $279. It was one ... read more

    Aug 25, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It's a Toro. Cuts Well, Starts effortlessly, cleans up well.
    Cons: Steel deck.

    Summary: I hesitated to write this review. There is absolutely no shortage of reviews on the Toro Recycler series of mowers. I wanted to take a few months of use before sharing my opinion. I used to think a mower was a mower. My last mower died a horrible ... read more

  • Extremely disappointed

    Aug 4, 2007 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Electric start
    Cons: Extremely poor mulching, transmission keeps going out on the self-propeller

    Summary: I bought this lawn mower at Home Depot based on excellent reviews from Consumer Reports. I don't think I could be much more disappointed in a lawn mower purchase. When I first got it, it made this horrible, loud cranking noise, and didn't mulch worth a ... read more

  • Good on the Level

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Plenty of power, easy to start
    Cons: Weak drive system

    Summary: Toro 22" Recycler model 20031. I've had this mower for two years. I checked out reviews here and Consumer Reports, and I've always heard that Toro made a good mower, even if they were more expensive. So when it went on sale at Home Depot, that did it. ... read more

    Pros: Personal pace = lifesaver Strong steel deck is great Good gas mileage with side eject
    Cons: Mulch mode uses a lot of gas Mine won't run for more than 10 seconds

    Summary: I bought a Toro GTS Personal Pace mower (model 20017) in August of last year from Home Depot. I bought it because my father had always used a Toro while I was growing up, the neighbors had Toros...and everyone swore by them. Now, I think I made a ... read more

  • Toro's Recycler 20070: Helping my Dad help himself.

    Aug 29, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Simple enough and tough enough. Great for people with health issues.
    Cons: Bagger is too small. Mulching is so so. No throttle control.

    Summary: None of us are getting any younger, so I learned this past year since my Father sold his house in the country and moved in town. His old house had about 2 acres of grass to mow and most of it was done by riding mower. I would help him with the trimming ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Self propelled, starts very easily, mows evenly.
    Cons: Bag keeps falling off.

    Summary: Our house sits on a 2.5 acre lot, and we have a large front and back yard that must be mowed regularly. We used to have a riding mower, and when that bit the dust, my husband purchased a push mower (mainly because it was cheap). I refused to mow the lawn ... read more

  • Love that Personal Pace system!

    Jul 22, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Speed. The Personal Pace is the easiest to use of any! Starts easy, runs strong.
    Cons: Small gas tank. Wheels slightly hard to adjust.

    Summary: I, like others here, hate to mow the lawn. When I do it, I want to get it done as fast as possible so that I can go back to enjoying myself. I bought the Toro Recycler model #20070 from Home Depot in July, 2005 so I have used it for about a year. The ... read more

  • Toro 20017 Not a good mulcher

    Jul 8, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: 22" Cut, Personal Pace System
    Cons: Mulching, bagging system not sturdy

    Summary: I bought this mower for the advertised great mulcher it claimed to be. After all the name is the "Recycler". The atomic blade did not live up to expectations. After buying at a local Toro authorized dealer and bringing it home, I set out to put it ... read more

    Jun 21, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Driveline, Personal Pace system.
    Cons: Tecumseh engine on some models.

    Summary: The new mowing season was looming and I contemplated putting over $100 into parts for my Yard Man 12A-979L (no longer sold but reviewed elsewhere on Epinions). The Yard Man's driveline was always weak and struggled to pull the heavy mower up my hilly ... read more

    Pros: Strong engine, great mulcher, pretty color
    Cons: faulty bagging system, poor customer service---Customer Service much better after second email

    Summary: My Scott's mower had only one speed, slow, so I decided to look for a new mower. Researched on the internet and visited almost every dealer in the area to get different opinions on their mower's qualities. Decided on a Toro, model 20016. The two year ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Solidly built, easy to start, self-propel works very well.
    Cons: The bag can fall off on one side if it gets really full.

    Summary: I purchased this lawn mower on 03/19/2006 to replace a 6 year old Murray that I just got tired of pushing manually. I have a very small yard. My lot is only 105 by 43 square feet. It really doesn't take me very long to mow my yard so I usually mow my ... read more

    Oct 9, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very easy to operate. Excellent bagging system. Starts on first pull. Great propel system.
    Cons: No throttle control to slow engine.

    Summary: It all started about 3 years ago, when a good friend of mine and I decided to start mowing lawns as a side job. Honestly who would have known that this type of service would be in such a demand? Our full-time job had become less time consuming and our ... read more

  • Great so far. Love the electric start feature!

    Jul 26, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Electric start. Personal pace. Comfortable handle
    Cons: Hard to back up. Battery compartment unlatches. Hard to adjust wheel height.

    Summary: This is my first gas mower, so I didn't know what to expect. I decided to go all out and buy the model 20041 with Personal Pace and electric start. Boy, am I glad I bought one with electric start! I bag grass and I had no idea in advance how often I ... read more

    Pros: Personal Pace drive system, lightweight, starts easily.
    Cons: More expensive than standard rear wheel drive mowers.

    Summary: We had a YardMan self-propelled rear bagger that died, and I was about to get a similar model when I found the reviews on the Toro Personal Pace mower. We decided to pay the $100 or so extra (beyond the $250-$300 mowers) and bought it, hoping that the ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Personal Pace Terrific Mulching Lightweight for such a machine
    Cons: Smallish Gas Tank Wheels

    Summary: Recently I was finally able to give my wired electric Black and Decker mower a proper retirement. A 18" cut on St. Augustine in a Florida Summer at midday with no propulsion was not a joy I was eager for at the end of the week. Once I got the green ... read more

    Pros: Excellent Cutting, Reliable
    Cons: No Beer Holder!

    Summary: I have a 1/2 acre lot, and its always nice to keep the lawn looking nice. This makes the house look more presentable, and keeps the often uptight neighbors happier. This spring has been a challenge, as my lawn continues to receive high amounts of rain at ... read more
