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.
