I have a Toro Recycler. Works amazing. It does take a long time for it to warm up though.

The best mower they ever made but it may be worn out. make sure it is at least 5.5 hp and it is in decent condition. Tip it over look at the blade nd see if it is banged up that will tell a lot about how he used it. I have had a 2 cycle since 97 and it still running.

I loved the toro 21 pro-line commercial mowers with the suzuki 4.5 horse motors! the rpms were higher than any of the 4 strokes out and bagged really well as a result. Can't buy them in california for many years now but remember the engine plate they used to bolt the motor to the deck cracked quite often. Also remember the air filter cleaner cover would wear out and fall off after awhile.

I have a 2 cycle...toro proline with the suzuki also.... it was manufactured in 2000... i used the heck out of it for a season and a half and have really no idea how much it was used before. I loved it ... somthing is wrong with it now. ... i need to take it and find out if it is fixable because i miss it. I have a almost new toro commercial too... the old one always came off first because it was so much lighter.

LOVED mine. Alas, had to retire it last year. Spent $1300 on the Kawasaki motor version and it is the BIGGEST PIECE OF CRAP OF ALL TIME! Wish I still had my 2-stroke...
