Bagging:
Denotes a combination of evenness, which is how close the mowers came to even, carpet-like mowing, and how much clippings the bag held before it filled or the chute clogged.

Comment:
I bought this mower before the spring of 2010 and have used it once a week during the mowing seasons and have never had any issues with it at all. It always starts on the first or second crank. It will stall if you try to cut very very high grass (between 6 and 8 inches) on the mulch setting if you push it too fast - if you go slow it's fine, and frankly any push lawn mower will have trouble in that scenario. The Personal Pace works fantastically - the mower keeps my exact pace whether I'm walking fast or slow. I always do the regular maintenance (changing oil, air filter, and plug as well as sharpening the blade) after my last cut of the season. My yard is 5400 square feet.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

Hands down, others best .....can not touch the Toro drive system, height adjustment, and mowing performance. My Other mower was more expensive and was unable to meet the afore mentioned requirements that the Toro easily met.

Comment:
I purchased a Toro lawn mower on 8/31/13 based upon the recommendation of consumer. The Toro lawn mower has a tag that says guaranteed to start. What a lie. What does guarantee mean to you? To me it means if it doesn't work that home depot will make it right. My lawn mower now does not start. I was told to take my receipt and lawn mower to my stores rental center. They made copies of my receipt. When I came to pick up my lawn mower I was told that I owed $50 for fixing the lawn mower. I have now learned that Toro's guarantee means nothing.
How long have you owned it:
Three-to-six months
Bottom Line
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
