More than 2100 buyers on Home Depots site recommend the Toro Recycler 20333. The most helpful reviewer found the powerful engine did an excellent job of chopping through foot-high grass and the rear wheel drive gave him power while turning. He also mentioned that he could almost jog with it. Another buyer notes that his Toro still runs well after three years of questionable maintenance. He does note a couple negatives: It is a bit louder than the Honda and if you go to fast the mulch is not fine enough.
Gather what you need First gather your tools and equipment. You will need a power drill eye protection work gloves and a blade sharpening kit. The kit should come with a ceramic blade sharpener and balancer. Expect to pay about $8 for the kit at your local hardware store. You will also need a torque wrench (or a socket wrench in a pinch) and a wooden block. Consider having a rubber mallet on hand too.
Other buyers comment that the mower feels and look like a toy. It seems flimsy. But they also found it could handle child-swallowing yard growth. One of the coolest features of the Toro Recycler 22-inch Personal Pace Variable Speed Gas Walk Behind Self Propelled Lawn Mower that kept coming up in our research is the blade-brake clutch. This allows you to stop the blade without stopping the motor of the mower which is helpful for moving debris out of the way.
