Toro Super Recycler Self-Propelled Lawn Mower


Toro Introduces New Technology with Super Recycler Series

Toro is synonymous with gas- and battery-powered lawn mowers, so it’s not surprising that we’re looking at another one, the Toro Super Recycler Self-Propelled Lawn Mower.

Our objective: To explore what this 21-inch gas-fueled grass chopper can accomplish for the homeowner.

The Toro Super Recycler Design Features

  • Model: Toro 21565
  • Power source: Gas
  • Engine displacement: 163 cc
  • Engine torque: 7.25 ft-lbs

The Toro 21565 has a 163cc Briggs & Stratton engine, and it puts out up to 7.25 ft-lbs of torque.

According to Toro, another aspect of this model is its Vortex air intake. Designed to pull more air into the cutting chamber, this technology purportedly provides better cutting.

Now, let’s move on to what’s in the name–Super Recycler. What is it?

While the designation, in part, is self-evident, the moniker essentially characterizes the cutting capabilities of the 21565, and particularly with respect to mulching.

Toro’s Super Recycler Self-Propelled Lawn Mower has rear-wheel drive and uses the manufacturer’s Personal Pace Auto-Drive. This automatically matches the operator’s walking pace, and it requires no controls. Its max forward speed of 4 MPH is comparatively higher than average walking.
