About - Toro Recycler 20332

Mulching:
Reflects a combination of evenness, which is how close the mowers came to even, carpet-like mowing, and how completely the mower distributed its clippings over the lawn's surface.

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.

Side discharging:
A combination of evenness, which is how close the mowers came to even, carpet-like mowing, and how evenly clippings were dispersed from the side-discharge chute.

Comment:
This Toro is probably the best mower I have owned. When I first used it I was really impressed by how easy it is to change from mulching, side discharge, and bagging, without tools. I really like the Personal Pace drive. I bought this mower in May of 2010. I mow about 15,000 square feet of yard just about every week from late April until mid November. Other than routine maintenance I have replaced the rear wheels[wore smooth], a broken carburetor return spring and choke thermostat. I do my own maintenance and service, and compared to other mowers I have owned this mower is very easy to maintain and use

Comment:
I bought this mower 2 years ago because of CR's excellent review and Toro's 3-year starting guarantee. Hidden away on page 6 of the operator's manual is a warning about using gas containing more than 10% ethanol. I use gas containing 10% ethanol as that's all that's sold in my area. The manual also reccomends adding fuel stabilizer when the gas is still fresh. I do that. It turns out that this isn't good enough. Sometime during every mowing season my mower stops starting. When I take it to an authorized warranty service provider, I'm always told that the problem is water in the gas line due to the deterioration of the ethanol over time and NOT COVERED BY THR WARRANTY. This after I add only fresh gas a third to a half gallon at a time when the tank is about empty and always use fuel stabilizer.

Comment:
Transmission shaft and drive wheels failed after 4 summers of use in Minnesota. Repair estimate of $225 was a joke. Toro Repair dealer offered me no charge for diagnostic if they could keep the mower for parts. They can have it. Saved me the cost of disposal! I'm done with Toro products.
