Toro LX 500, bull!
We found out, to our chagrin, that Toro is now manufactured by MTD, and we all know what a sterling reputation MTD has for reliability. After 9 hours of mowing, the Toro quit--would not start, not even a click. After speaking to the Hotline, we determined it was a fuse,which we replaced and which immediately blew when we tried to start the Toro. We now get to haul the piece of metal to the repair shop and hope they can find the cause of the problem. Do not buy Toro, and do not buy Cub Cadet, since they are both MTD products, just different paint jobs. What a shame that a company with the customer confidence that Toro enjoyed has been taken over and made over by something like MTD.
