Comment:
For some reason I keep getting water in the fuel system.this lawn mower started having problems last year of cutting out. this season it has been in for repairs three times at two diffrent shops. Just got it back from the shop, used new fuel with fuel stabilizer. The mower ran for 40 minutes then same old story. I would not take another one of these for free. have almost spent as much fixing it as I did buying it. Outside of that, I would still not rate it very high. The self propel on the front wheel does not have enough traction. Bogs down very easily in grass that has only a weeks worth of growth. Rear bagger clogs easily. Save yourself time and money and steer clear of this Toro and any like it.

After 1 1/2 years the gas cap began to leak and I am not getting the support that I should be getting. It is my belief that there should be a recall as I have two neighbors who have the very same issue.

Comment:
I had to work with this engine from day one to get it started. I have yet to need to use it when it didn't require some maintenance to get it to start. When I do get it started, it cuts ok, but this is ridiculous. I had a Craftsman mower for over 20 years that started every single time I needed, with the exception of one time it sat unused for a couple of years. Just need a plug and air filter. I would prefer to use the Craftsman, but I already gave it away. I need to go buy a reliable lawn mower, and it won't be a Toro or have a Kohler engine.
