Toro Super Recycler model 20039
by Mike M.
I have owned this mower almost 4 years and have had nothing but trouble with it! I paid $659 new, and would have been better served using it as a boat anchor. I pride myself in taking care of my stuff and getting the most from my purchases. This mover was build to fall apart.
Within 4 weeks the electric start needed to be returned the shop three times to be fixed and has remained problematic since. The rear wheeled, self-propelled gears have needed to be serviced twice. (The left rear shim comes out every other mowing and has to be reinstalled prior to cutting the lawn. So much for the Toro 5 year full coverage warranty or should I say non-warranty. Take the mover back more than once and you are on your own!!!
The overall cutting performance is marginal and not nearly as good as our old Lawn boy. I need to cut he yard twice to achieve a clean yard free of grass clippings. I am trying to get some type of return on my investment but feel I am better served dumping it. My yard is not that big and takes only 45 minutes to cut it once…but I need to cut it twice. Each week I am reminded of my big mistake of buying a Toro.
