A riding mower plus a walk behind mower is essential and then it takes us 4+ hrs to finish mowing. Hubby took the walk behind mower to the dealership and told him that Toro needs to get their s*** together. Dealer said he would fix it and maybe even do some metal work so that a guard can be placed around the choke lever to protect it from being bumped. Turns out, dealership has done a number of repairs to other mowers like ours.
We have a Simplicity riding mower that is good (so far). The Simplicity's predecessor was also a Simplicity and we had that one for 16 years with two minor repairs my husband did himself.
Sounds like the dealer gives good customer service..
