    Cool. I just found this forum and was wondering why my 06 toro I had cut so bad? I eventually sold it because of the really bad cut. Then, in 08 I got a new toro and it cut much better. Was there any mods to the newer ones? What could have been wrong with the 06 one?

    Without having an opportunity to inspect the ’06 machine, it is difficult to speculate as to why the mower was not performing up to expectations. Cutting performance can be negatively impacted by a number of things. Following are some of the common issues discovered by our Customer Care team when troubleshooting cutting performance inquiries … dull blade(s), wrong blade(s) for the mower, engine not operating at proper RPM, excessive build-up beneath the deck, cutting deck not properly leveled, and/or parts beneath the deck damaged or missing. It is difficult to say whether any of these things may have played a role in your situation with the ’06 mower. However, there were no product changes between 2006 and 2008 that would affect cutting performance.

    Thanks - The Toro Company

    Okay. Cool. All I've noticed is that the 06 22176 model I had never would cut right, the blade was fine rpms were checked and kickers were cleaned off before use. So I guess it's a defective mower maybe. The 07 model definitely cut much better and had the less powerful honda engine on it. Just a strange incident I thought toro would want to know about.

    S man, did your 06' have the BBC? my 06' w/BBC also has a bad cut.

    I can't imagine what engineer would think that blocking a major part of the the cutting chamber with the BBC mechanism would not effect cut and performance. This idea pretty much kills damp grass mulching IMO.
