Toro lawnmower features
We are in the market for a new self-propelled lawn mower and are interested in a Toro because we have found many dealers in the area for service and feel it has consistent reviews on being a solid, cost-effective choice.
We like the idea of the stop spin blade feature. Does anyone have experience with this?
The models we are between are:
Super Recycler 20381 (no stop blade) $520
Super Recycler 20383 (stop blade) $600
Recycler 20373 (stop blade) $409 *no dealers in our area seem to carry this one, seems most comparable to the HD model below but with the OHV engine vs. the B & S
Recycler 20333 (stop blade) $400 from Home Depot
The biggest differences I see between the models are the steel vs. aluminum deck, the warranty and the engine type.
Is it worth the $200 to opt for the Super Recycler with the stop blade vs. the HD model?
Our lawn is 1/3 acre and does have some significant sloping.
