Toro 2 cycle or 4 cycle?

I was wondering what is better?
Toro's 2 or 4 cycle. I'm looking for another toro push mower.

Both what? 2 and 4 cycle? Get the 2 cycle. Look around enough and you can still find NEW 2 cycle new old stock...but don't let used sway you either. Used are good deals.

Those older Toro mowers with the 5.5 hp suzuki 2 stroke engine was un-killable! I have 1 that was my dads. It's 20 some years old and still runs like a champ! Damn EPA taking them off the market!!
