Bruce Webster Columbia, MD This is a testimonial to the ruggedness, quality and longevity of Toro residential equipment. I purchased a Toro 21″ HP Rear Bagger lawnmower (Model 20584) in August 1986. I am still using that same lawnmower in 2013, 27 years later! See the pictures to the right which show me pushing this wonderful Toro machine (it is not self-propelled!) at the spry young age of 33 and…

So I decided to get into landscaping just because I always enjoyed…

Jesse Jones USA Jesse Jones had never owned a Toro before. When his mower unexpectedly died this summer, he went to J&K Snowmobiles in Estherville, Iowa to find a new one. Although he was initially “drawn in by her pure beauty,” he couldn’t believe all of the high performance options the Toro Titan MX5400 offered. Jones is a fun loving guy who appreciates appearance, but also wants a mower that…

by Joseph Ferrelli III Winston-Salem, NC My name is Joseph Ferrelli, III, and I live in Winston-Salem North Carolina. Today, March 24, 2011, I started the lawn mowing season with the only lawn mower I have ever owned or used. In 1971, my father bought a Toro 21-inch Whirlwind mower for me to cut the grass. I was 10 years old and we were living in Greenville, South Carolina. My…

We both agreed that it would be better for us to go to a dealer, so we can get to know the people behind the name, rather than a “big box store” approach. So, when we walked into the dealership, we knew that we would be…

Paul USA I didn’t buy my first Toro. I was 12 or 13 at the time and my Dad had been using a reel type mower from the late 40’s or early 50’s. In the early 60’s he decided (since I was grass cutting age and the reel mower weighed a ton and I could not use it safely) it was time for a new mower. We went to the…

The only thing that has lasted longer is my wife (thank God), but she isn’t as good in the snow. I’m sure she would want to add her appreciation. I have had to replace a…

by Cezar Lewandowski When my wife and I bought our first home in Bloomington, MN in 1975, we needed a lawn mower and a snow thrower for the yard and driveway. I started looking in the paper for a used mower and ran across something called a “Power Handle.” The seller described a thing that had a motor with attachments that included a reel and rotary mower, and a snowthrower…all…
