Toro 20367 60V Push Mower | Whisper Quiet Mowing
Toro 60V Push Mower Excels in a Number of Areas
It wasn’t too long ago that we had the opportunity to test out a number of battery-powered mowers for a side-by-side comparison. We got the chance to work with some solid push mowers that displayed good power and great runtimes. It really is too bad that we didn’t have our hands on the Toro 60V Push Mower (model 20367) at the time. This mower’s whisper-quiet operation and exceptional runtime would have stacked up quite well.
- Incredibly quiet operation
- Long runtime
- Easy to start, easy to maneuver
- Nothing to speak of
RecommendationWe have no problem recommending the Toro 60V Push Mower. It operates really quietly, rolls smoothly, stores away neatly, and at least for maintenance cuts, seems to run almost indefinitely on the kitted 4.0Ah battery. For homeowners that have a medium-sized lawn, this Toro Mower might be the ticket.
Toro 20367 Lawnmower Out of the Box
Setting up the Toro 60V Push Mower was a simple affair. Aside from installing the power button—which took all of three seconds by clicking it into place on the handle—and removing the protective stickers from the steel deck, the Toro 20367 mower pretty much works straight out of the box.
You set the cut height with the 2-point height adjustment lever located at the front and rear axles. The Toro has 9 cutting positions that range from 1-1/4 inches to 3-3/4 inches in 1/4-inch increments.
Don’t get caught up wrestling with the front adjustment as we did. Just pull out the tab, rotate the lever over to your preferred height, and lock the tab back into place. Once you get the hang of it, the height adjustment feels pretty secure.
Getting Down to Business
One of the benefits to battery-powered mowing revolves around the ease of use. For instance, starting up the Toro 60V Push Mower involves pulling back on the bail and pushing in the button on the handle. Immediately, the Toro 20367 21-inch push mower whirs to life.
All Quiet on the Western Front…Lawn
This brings up one of the best points of mowing with the Toro 60V: the noise…or lack thereof. We’ve run into some pretty quiet battery-powered mowers over the years, but this one might take top honors in that department.
We tested it at 73 dB(A) on the SPL meter. For a point of reference, we were able to carry on a conversation at a normal speaking volume while this mower ran at full throttle. The noise is honestly a little soothing—like the Toro 20367 could be effectively repurposed as a white noise generator for a sleepless night. (No, your wife will NOT let you put it in the baby’s room).
Mowing with the Toro 21″ Push Mower
Mowing was a breeze. With the 11-inch rear wheels, the bumps in our lawn didn’t slow us down, and making 180° turns required little effort. The Toro 20367 push mower rolled freely on straightaways as well, and with the 21″ steel deck, it felt like we had finished in no time.
Though the Toro comes with a bag, and we understand why people would opt for bagging their clippings, we generally prefer to go the mulching route. It takes less effort on our part, and in this particular case, it gave us an opportunity to see what Toro’s Recycler blade can do.
The blade looks a little more robust than your standard battery-powered mowing blades. It has a slight uptick at the back of the blade, which provides the recycling effect you need for a good mulching. The result was clean-cut strips devoid of the trails of clippings that sometimes result from a subpar mulching blade.
Though we used the Toro 60V Push Mower for a maintenance cut, we did have a few thicker patches that required some extra torque from the blade. The brushless motor tackled these areas well, with the mower audibly ramping up the power to get through the rougher stuff, then cycling back down to save energy.
Going and Going and Going
We were particularly impressed by the Toro 60V Push Mower’s runtime. With the kitted 4.0Ah battery installed, we got an impressive hour from a full charge. Depending on how fast you can push this mower, it doesn’t seem unreasonable to expect to get a 1/2 acre or more mowed on a charge.
This is, however, a significantly higher runtime than Toro claims for the 20367 which is 35 minutes. It isn’t often that our findings exceed manufacturer claims, and almost never by this much. Is Toro being modest here? We’re not sure, but our experience with the mower warrants some high praise in this regard.
The Toro 20367 lawnmower features “SmartStow technology,” which seems like taking creative license with lingo to indicate that the handle folds over for upright storage. But, despite the verbal pageantry here, the handle does fold over easily, locks into place, and makes upright storage possible and easy.
