I had to laugh reading the comments after the article. I've got a 2010 Toro 22" Recycler Personal Pace mower that I mowed a half acre lot for the first 6 years of it's life once a week, now only mow a 600 square foot lot. It has never had anything replaced except the oil and sparkplug. It has the auto choke engine starts on the first or second pull even first thing in the spring. Some people just like to complain or as I like to say, some people would cry if you hung them with a new rope!

I have found 10 to 15 of those mowers being tossed by their owners in the last 5 years and they had either nothing wrong with them or something very minor. I have turned around and resold every single one of them for around $150. I have a Toro as well but not that model, I have a 1994 Toro SuperPro recycler, with the 3 speed rear wheel drive and cast aluminum deck, great mower. The gears within the wheels are metal not plastic, I hear a lot of people complaining about the new plastic gears stripping over time from riding on the metal gears that turn the plastic ones, plus grass getting in and jamming in between them which is what causes the stripping, the solution is to swap them out with the metal gears, they are exactly the same just the old ones were metal and now their plastic, but otherwise, they are good mowers. I just wish they still made them in Minnesota like mine, not Mexico and that the engines were made in Wisconsin not China, but their still good mowers otherwise, still one of the better brands compared to the MTD products being sold elsewhere.

I think they're right that you need to try it out. My mind is telling me who needs reverse at the same time I'm thinking that might be handy to have.

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!
