    Pros: Easy start
    Efficient mulching
    Adaptable self-propel pace
    Cons: Heavy

    Summary: I've used the 20095 for a full season now. I upgraded to this electric start model, so that when I'm away my wife can mow without having to try to pull-start the mower. Well, the electric start feature has spoiled me. The pull-start feature does work on ... read more

    Pros: It lasted 17 years without a trip to a repair shop.
    Cons: Wheel bearings/axels wore out at 17 years.

    Summary: I purchased my first Toro Super Recycler in 1994. I have been using it for 17 years. I have been 100% satisfied. After 17 years the wheels are very loose and wobble. It still starts 1st pull every time. I have changed the oil almost every season. The oil ... read more

    Pros: The Personal Pace system is really nice. 
    Cons: Piece of crap.

    Summary: I have had three mowers in my lifetime, and I am in my fifties.  The first was a Lawnboy, and I ran it so long I rebuilt it twice, and it was still a pretty good mower all-around.  The second was a Snapper Jet Vac with a Briggs and it ran ... read more

  • Gives a great cut, but too much effort needed to get it

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Even cut, Personal Pace system, width of cut, variety of cutting lengths.
    Cons: Poor discharge of cut grass, buildup of grass under body, vibration

    Summary: I've had this mower since around 2002 and only had to get it because of an unfortunate accident involving fingers with my old Lawn Boy (which I loved). I'm not unhappy with it exactly, but in the only 8 years I've had it for, it's ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Climbs inclines like a pro, love the personal pace and hose cleanout.
    Cons: Leaves pieces of uncut grass, difficult for short people to pull start, is very heavy.

    Summary: I bought this mower in May and I loved it.  I'm a small framed 64 yr. old female with a half acre to mow in Florida.  This mower was great on inclines but a little heavy around the various gardens.  I didn't have to pull very hard and it ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Works well but struggles in long grass.
    Cons: Toro not honoring its warranty obligation.

    Summary: I purchased a Toro 20056 (s/n270000894) with an aluminum body and immediately had problems. The blade clutch wasn't securely tightened and became loose during the first mowing, eventually failing to spin up when engaged and causing a violent vibration. I ... read more

  • Toro 20037 Good mower, but one gripe

    Jun 28, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Personal Pace, aluminum deck, B&S engine, maneuverability, durability
    Cons: Bad side-discharge chute design

    Summary: I've been buying Toro mowers since 1975. They're durable mowers that provide a great cut. Of the walk-style mowers I've had, all but one have had aluminum decks, which contribute to the durability. I bought the 20037 Super Recycler new in 2002. It's ... read more

    Pros: OHC engine has good power. Easy start Awesome mulching Personal pace works well
    Cons: Pulling the mower back is a little tricky, but you get the hang of it.

    Summary: First, a BIG thanks to mkowaleski. Reading his very detailed review of the SR4 20057 led me in the right direction, and I felt I should chime in with my own thoughts. We live on half an acre in Atlanta. I don't mind cutting the grass, and rather ... read more

    Pros: easy start easy push self-paced selfpropelled
    Cons: heavy requires more regular maintenance than I think a push mower should.

    Summary: So far, so good. I purchased the mower Spring of 2005. It's the model with the electric start. We spent the cash on the electric start because my wife said she would mow the lawn if she could start it. The electric start is a nice feature, but IMHO ... read more

    Sep 12, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: I have a thick green lawn that this mower brings a manicured look to.
    Cons: Handle needs a cushion grip.

    Summary: It was hard not to buy the Personal Pace system but my lot is 60 by 138ft. With house, gardens, shed and trees I seem to back up about a third of the time and that would be a manual thing anyway. My Father often remarked at the logic of paying to have ... read more

    Pros: Briggs & Stratton Intek Pro = Torque + Reliability
    Cons: Found blade to be out of balance, easily fixable however.

    Summary: My 2-stroke lawnboy finally bit the dust after 25 years and it was time to shake the dust off the wallet and find a replacement. Like Mark stated, the Toro model 20057 SR4 Super recycler is an engineer’s mower. Nothing fancy, just pure torque and ... read more

    Cons: I really have not found any cons yet.

    Summary: I just bought this mower so I can't address long-term reliability but my first impression is that I bought a great mower. This model is the same as the 20055, rated #2 in Consumer Reports, but it does not come with a bag. I always mulch so I decided I ... read more
