Comment:
Going on my third cutting season with mine and never had a problem with it. But I do make sure to keep it clean, especially the air filter, and I put gas treatment in the tank to offset Ethanol problems. My only suggestion would be to put rubber or knobby tires on the front, as they are now slick plastic and they don't get much traction, especially going up a hill.

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Comment:
I have the 20371 with Kohler engine and it has had carberation problems since the day I opened the box from home depot. On my own nickel I paid to have the carb replaced less than 6 months after purchase and it already does not start again. <br /><br />The fact that gas now contains ethyol is NOT the consumer's responsiblty. Toro must keep up with the operating envornment or it will lose business. They've lost mine.

Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
