Rated 1 out of 5??by cyclemark pushes like it weighs a ton
even though the unit isn't particularly heavy it pushes like it weighs a ton. I assume this is due to lowered rear lip of the mower dragging on the grass - I assume this design is driven by safety concerns but it absolutely ruins an otherwise ok mower. it makes mowing twice as tough as it ought to be.

Rated 5 out of 5??by matt1234 great mower just needs a few small touch ups
bought this mower for eco lawn care company. can cut 6 average lawns on a single charge in mulching mode when used correctly.
needs bearings in wheels
better stonger deck.
more rpm to get better lif
optional blades that dont have a flex.
toro needs to step up there game the have the resources and knowledge and should be the leader and innovator to new age tech.

Rated 4 out of 5??by DHSJ77 Less noise, zero gas/oil/service
Yes, it's a bit of a workout to push and yes, you must keep the blades sharp for best results and no, not it does not do what a gas mower does in wet and heavy grass, however, the relatively quiet operation, zero carbon footprint, and zero gas/oil/servicing in 5 years makes this mower worthy of serious consideration in my experience.

Rated 4 out of 5??by Westieluvnlady I love my torro
I have. Had my torro for 5 years and I love it. It is quiet and quick to charge. Just charge and go. The only thing that bothered me in the beginning was the weight of the push. Didn't get the self propelled but now I have gotten used to it. Recommend buying this for small yards

Rated 4 out of 5??by OTIC16 Overall good product in my 3rd year. Poor cutting at normal walking pace.
Going into my third full year of use. Solid built means some weight but have found it pushes smoothly and my wife likes as well. The down side is that cuts poorly if you go at the same ground speed as a same size gas mower. Does it need more HP or maybe increase in RPM? The blade is funny shaped/angled could that be the reason. I think TORO engineers could address and fix this. Have to walk at a slower pace to get a satisfactory cut even on nice dry not over tall grass. It can leave 1-2 individual blades of grass uncut when you know they passed fully under the cutting deck - odd. At 36V it sure shouldn't be a power issue. Maybe the RPMs need to be increased. It doesn't bag well and RPMs could be the same issue as it doesn't seem to me to blow the grass into the back of the bag; instead it collects near the discharge and won't fill up the bag. Definitely works best in mulcher mode. Like to collect clipping to use as garden mulch during the first month or two of the season.

Rated 4 out of 5??by papadog Love this mower!
I am on my 3rd year with this mower. Very dependable. I haven't had to replace anything. The batteries are still going strong. Plenty of height adjustment. My lawn is pretty level. The mower is very durable with its metal frame and deck. Yes it is heavier but Toro mowers last for decades. This is my first electric and I love not having to deal with the gas and oil and disposal at the end of the season. I just give it a good rinse under the deck, fold down the handle and store it away until next season.

Rated 5 out of 5??by Emowerfan I am very pleased
So far so good. Have used it this season so far and it works very well. Just keep the blade sharp and balanced and clean the deck so that there is no grass build up. My yard is 6000 square feet and flat, so it is ideal for this sized yard. It is no heavier than a conventional mower...just A LOT quieter!

Rated 3 out of 5??by MoMo This produt is prematurely dying!
My Toro E-Cycler is going on it's fourth season, and I am sorry to say it is not the same as year 1 and 2. It is dying a slow death, and yes it was serviced at the end of last season. The battery does not hold a charge as in the beginning. The mower pushes down grass and leaves it uncut which means I have to retrace my step in order to cut. The mower is getting harder to push and turn. I do believe lawn mowers should last
longer than four years. I have a small lot of 1/4 acre to mow, so use was not excessive. I also believe the mower weighing in at 77lbs should be much more nimble, and easier to push. I am looking for a new lawnmower now, and it will be a 190cc gas engine, and self propelled.
