is this a super recycler?

its got the gts motor and the grey wheels but it side discharges.

Yeah, that's not a Super Recycler.

You can always tell if you look closely for the word "Super". (It's usually located right before the word "Recycler")






BTW, I use a Super Recycler and I am pretty happy with it.

I have that same model mower, bought it new in 98 and it is still going strong. Never needed anything other than a cable. It mulches good but the newer recyclers and super recyclers mulch better. They come with a mulching blade that looks like a gator blade. You can probably get one for it though. The major difference between the super recyclers and the recyclers is that the Super recyclers come with an aluminum deck. $65 isn't bad but I would wait and buy a better and newer one.

Not a SR4.

At any rate looks like the brand new SR4's are using Chinese engines instead of the Briggs.
Bad move by Toro.
