Of course the deciding factor between an almost meditative experience and one filled with frustration is often the quality of the lawn mower you have.

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.
