Toro Warranty Repair Experiences and Expectations?
I recently bought a Toro 22188 from a landscape contractor who was selling it (I absolutely LOVE the mower so far!!!). I don't have the original sale papers and I don't know the original in-service date, but the date of manufacture on the engine implies that the whole mower is less than a year old, and therefore should presumably still be under Toro's 12 month warranty for products that have been used commercially (the engine has a 24 month commercial use warranty).
There are some minor things wrong with the mower such as one wheel assembly that has some play in it, a cable that's not adjusted quite right, a ripped rear skirt, peeling decals, flaking paint on wheels, etc. and I'd like to get these items fixed if possible before the warranty expires.
For those who have experience with or knowledge of Toro warranty service, I'd like to know:
1) Are Toro warranties transferrable (as I'm not the original owner)?
2) Am I going to get hassled because I don't have the original paperwork even though it's clear the mower is less than a year old?
3) How accommodating is Toro/the servicing dealer likely to be on little nit-picky stuff like decals and wheel paint?
