Toro Super Recycler

Hi - I'm looking for a bit of feedback on these mowers please as I'm thinking of adding one or possibly 2 to our fleet. I like the fact they come in a 22" version with the option to mulch or side discharge and I'm hoping this might speed us up a bit on some larger commercial sites,I'm aware they might not be as robust as the higher end mowers but if they last a season, possibly two I'd be happy.

Thanks

    We've had the heavy duty commercial version of these costing about £1k and it's been fautless for almost 4 years & still going. We've also the domestic version (circa £500) for backup / general use on the fleet and I think we'll get around 1.5-2 seasons out of that, which is good for us and happy with that.

    Overall, very happy with our Toro mowers and would recommend. Really take the abuse from multi-operators. Also happy with the weibangs. Our next mower will likely be the Toro pro-strip 56, their version of the Hayter 56 (Toro now own hayter).

      Hi Steven 

      Sent you a reply but it vanished just to recap . 

      I bought a Toro recycler Five years ago and it was my main mower for Three years , It's still going strong . 

      It does not have the side discharge but the muching facility is superb , It has cut some very big lawns in mulch mode and not left any clippings on top . 

      Boxing off pushed beyond its limits it will clog up but a foot high lawn for e.g can be cut in Three passes by reducing the height in stages if this is the only mower you have available . 

      its a steady mower for the right job .

        Hello John

        The mulching on these mowers does sound decent from reviews I've seen and the side discharge on the model I'm looking at is a nice bonus.Thanks for your feedback.

          A side discharge definately would be a nice bonus on mine which is a domestic mower 48 cm ,Where time is not an issue and finish not a priority it copes fine at a steady pace .

      Thanks Andrew,yes it's the domestic version I'm eyeing up and it's making sense at the moment. We currently get around 2 years from the Honda HRX 537's but they are twice the price of a super recycler with average mulching capability and no side discharge.

      Will be interested to hear how the pro-strip works out for you.
