Toro Recycler
« on: January 26, 2020, 01:33:30 AM »
Got to rebuild this Toro Recycler next week, as you can see it's been lovingly looked after.  ::)

 :hmm:  Although some would say it has a durable steel deck, what they don't tell you is the whole back end is plastic.  Spose it would be ok for cutting grass..  :idea:

Greg, thanks.  Methinks the jet wash is the least of problems, got to remove the transmission and replace the whole plastic back end of the deck, and they even smashed the mulching plate off its hinge so new one of those too.  The whole thing is smashed to bits.  :doh:

How do you find the Toro Recycler? .... I use the Toro Super Bagger and previously I had few Hayter R53s (same mower) Both are ok in the dry. Increasing rpms and burn  some holes in the catcher bag also helps but I always revert back to the little 16" Izy in the wet. I'm guessing the Recycler by its nature will not be any improvement in wet? Contraversial I know but I love the personal pace systemand which a 16" mower came with it (I only do domestic stuff)

This particular Toro Recycler is a Steel (TIN) deck machine with plastic insert in the back end of it.  Much like a cheap Mountfield or similar.  ;)

I would have wrote it off, but the guy wanted it done.  I didn't price it up, so don't know how much the parts were. Obviously my labour rate is far too cheap though. lol..
