Toro Complaint - Toro - A High Maintenance Mower That Is Hard To Start
My 91 year old father was sold this mower for his 66 year old daughter (me) to use to mow a very large lawn. "Guaranteed to Start" is a deception. All mowers start eventually and this one is so hard to start...but it does start eventually.
I was told that, after 30 days, any unused gas must be disposed as it will destroy the engine. How do you do this? The EPA will hit you with big fines if you just poured it out.
The Toro company is totally unsupportive. Right now, the gas has no time to become stale. But, I have a terrible time starting it.
This is a very delicate, high maintenance mower that is difficult to start unless you are a very strong male.
Please consider Sears with a service contract for any repairs for your next mower.
The Kensington MD dealer told me that it needed high test gas but the Toro company said that this octane would burn up the engine. Who can you believe!
My dad was sold a "lemon." There is nothing that we can do but warn others.
